If you have never been to a Band of Horses show, you must drop what you’re doing immediately (when I say immediately I mean after you read my post) and then find tickets to one of their shows. You’ll thank me. Seriously, you will. This will mark the second time I’ve seen them perform (they’re officially tied with New Kids on the Block). Don’t tell them that, I doubt they would want to be associated with an 80’s boy band. I hope this blog post doesn’t ruin my street cred.
Back to last night’s show.
I’m pretty sure I went a little nuts when they played my FAVORITE song of theirs, The Funeral. When I saw them last year with My Morning Jacket, I’m pretty sure they closed the show with The Funeral (which was the perfect song to close the show with) so you can imagine my excitement when they included it in their set list. This leaves me to rate my top 5 concerts of all time (this could possibly change since I’ve got 6-7 more shows this year)
- Mumford + Sons
- The Avett Brothers
- Band of Horses
- Kings of Leon
- New Kids on the Block (yeah I know I’m being judged, but those guys can put on a good show AND they’ve still got it)
Like I said earlier in my post, go see Band of Horses. If you like them you can thank me, if you don’t then you need to listen to them again because you’re obviously missing out on something great.
Enjoy some of the pictures I took from last night’s show!
