Live Concerts Are So Much Fun

The reason this post is a little late in coming is... well, simply put, I'm older now and live concerts can really take it out of you!  But- Hannah and I had so much fun Friday night at a short but super fun concert by the LA based band, Ozomatli.  If you haven't heard them, I highly suggest you check them out here.  They have anywhere from 7-10 band members on any given night, come from diverse backgrounds, and though they defy labeling, you could say that they are an energetic fusion of hip-hop, salsa, and funk.  Hannah has loved them for years and introduced me to them.  Of course, I only had my cell phone, so the pics I did get aren't the best quality, but I still want to share them with you! (I'll spare you the videos:))

the band!

So, again, Hannah and I are a bit older now and spent most of Saturday recovering (actually, Hannah had to work part of the day!).  I don't think I've danced like that in years- and I am NOT a dancer.  I usually stand back at live shows (I dated a great guy in a band for a year) and enjoy from a distance.  But you just couldn't help dancing at this show.  From the first song to the last, I was movin'!  Thanks, Ozomatli!  And thanks, Blueberry Hill for hosting on short notice:)

Back to work tomorrow~
