So I missed Modest Mouse last week and was a little sad. There was no way that I was going to miss this Thursday, the second Twilight Summer Concert at Pioneer Park. Many had heard that it was overcrowded and awful last week – but this week it was Girl Talk, for free, so I made MK set out super early.
We got to the HOT HOT HOT SLC by 5:30,and parked across the street from a main entrance. We looked around the park, ran and grabbed some food, and were back around 6:30. Plenty of time, plenty of room. Memory Tapes opened, there was a short break as the park continued to fill up, then Girl Talk took the stage.
He’s come a long way since the first SXSW show I saw. The fans still dance all over, but now there was a whole little act to go along with it. Speaking of long, he really needs to cut his hair. We took a bunch of silly pictures, including where we got home at 11 to get ready for the trip to the family reunion, and I STILL made vegetable lo mein extra water chestnuts by request as a thank you. MK does not like concerts. I’ve really got to find someone here who does.
As you can see in the pics, we stayed in the back-ish. Had a good view, but MK does not dance. So we were out of the fray, which we heard from one kid was like a mosh pit, and someone was running around bleeding. It was also an important day in my life because O.M.G. it was the first time I’ve ever felt O.L.D.
