Enjoyed some live music at Arts, Beats & Eats (Sunday September 5, 2010)

Arts Beats and Eats

This is one of the rare times that I venture into a huge crowd, the kind of a crowd where you feel like a sardine and you hope that everyone remembered to shower before they came...thank goodness for the much cooler weather!

William dropped me off just a couple of blocks from where I wanted to be...what a sweetheart! He really did not want to go...at all...he hates maneuvering crowds that tight...and he knows that I really don't mind doing things like this by myself.

Besides, you couldn't park anywhere within a one mile radius and there was no way we were going to leave our new truck parked a few miles away at a high school or at the race track, so we could take the shuttle. Heck no!

So, off I went to look at artwork (which I never did find, because some streets were quite literally SO packed with people that you couldn't get through them) and to take photos, ...and off he went to relax and watch sports on tv...then I called him later to pick me up. Cool!
(We only live a few miles away, anyway.)

And, where else can you see big name bands for only a one-time $3.00 admission fee these days? I have to admit that I really enjoyed it for a little while. I've seen WAR in concert before and I always enjoy them. You just can't help but smile and groove to the tunes! I did! ;-)

WAR was followed by Macy Gray, but I didn't stay for that. Went wandering instead and I could hear from a distance. It was nice to see all the smiling faces for a change, in the midst of this dire Michigan economy.

then hit the BACK button to come back to this post.

This is how far back I was. I'm surprised that any of the photos turned out at all. It was literally shoulder to shoulder standing only, so I was holding my camera up over the heads of the people in front of me (I'm only 5'2") LOL. I really like my little digital Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5.

The whole audience was singing "Cisco Kid"!

  1. Good for you for getting out enjoying yourself. We aren't much for the big crowds either but sometimes you just have to put your elbows out and get out there! WAR is an amazing group and I would have LOVED to hear Macy Gray!!! Her voice is so unique!

    Sorry you weren't able to see a lot of the art work due to the crowds. But glad to hear you got out! Excellent over the head pictures! We are in the market for a new digital camera. We'll haveto check out the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5. =0)

    Thanks for sharing your night out with us! :)
