Here at the Paradise – Day 6 o’ T-shirt week
My sister, Janet, and I used to make up dance routines to the Paradise Theatre album from Styx when we were kids. It was one of her favorite bands. She got to see them earlier this year in KS, so when I found out they were playing my local county fair. I jumped at the chance to go rock out.
Since the concert ticket was included in the $10 admission to the fair, I had some change rolling around in my pocket to buy Styx swag. I took home the best tee option they had. (DISCLAIMER: the best option they had that didn’t include rhinestones.)
The concert was fun. Tommy Shaw is reverse aging with flowing locks, a great voice and leather pants. The keyboard player was obnoxiously over-the-top intentionally cheesy (he was twerking his heinie at the audience during the first song). It was 56 degrees and windy (in AUGUST!) and they didn’t play my favorite Styx song – The Best of Times, from that Paradise Theatre album. So, I’ll leave you with that song as I slow-dance, 8th grade style, with my husband in our home office…[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-seebMbckw&w=480&h=360]
