Roger as well as you aren’t outrageous unison fans.  While his brother goes to tons as well as tons, you in all go to the single or dual giveaway ones the year, mostly in parks nearby the house.  What can you say?  It’s usually not unequivocally the thing.

Still, way, approach behind in 2004, when Roger as well as you weren’t even dating, you gathering 5 hours, with 5 friends, in my parents’ mini-van, to Cornell University, for the many appropriate unison of the lives featuring Guster, Ben Folds, as well as Rufus Wainwright, as well as afterwards gathering 5 hours behind home.  ON A SCHOOL NIGHT.  Yes.  We were flattering many the coolest kids ever.

The Coolest Kids Ever. #TBT

Yeah.  We rocked during tall school.  Anyway, you got behind to Mahopac during around 5am, ate breakfast during the diner, as well as afterwards went behind to school.  It was the unequivocally initial all-nighter (of 3 sum in my life) you ever pulled, as well as you was so sleepy which when you got home from propagandize during 5pm, you usually cried hysterically until you upheld out.  A allude to from my mom whilst you was crying: “Did you get deserted from the college?  Was it Harvard?”  Like you said, you rocked tall school.

Anyway, which unison was epic, as well as positively the prominence of my teenager-hood, as well as unequivocally contributed to what is right away scarcely the decade of Roger as well as me being us.  Aww.  Then, in in in in in between which unison as well as substantially 2007, you saw Guster as well as Ben Folds fool around alone as well as together substantially 4 some-more times.  This is to the small extent for nostalgia as well as to the small extent given they have been extraordinary live.

So, when Shelby asked if you longed for to see them fool around together with Barenaked Ladies upon Tuesday during Prospect Park, you were sold.  We shelled out the tiny happening for the tickets, as well as waited breathlessly for them to arrive around post, usually similar to in the ancient days.  When they never arrived, you called as well as was positive they’d be during will-call.  Sadly, Shelby wasn’t means to come to unison during the end, so Roger as well as you done it in to the date night, as well as you met him during work prior to you walked over for cooking during Kimchi Grill.  Those tacos have been severely tasty – you had 5 opposite sorts in in in in in between us, as well as all of them were extraordinary – so if you’re nearby the Brooklyn Museum, unequivocally have the stop there!

Guster!

At around 6:30, you headed down Prospect Park toward the bandshell.  The unison proposed right during 6:30, yet you were told Guster wouldn’t begin until 7, so you weren’t as well nervous.  We’d been to shows there before, as well as regularly usually walked right in.  Alas, which was not to be this time.  As you walked, you saw an huge line, heading about the entertain of the mile in to the bandshell, as well as already listened Guster playing, even yet it was usually 6:50.  We breathed the whine of service when you satisfied it wasn’t the will-call line, as well as proceeded upon to which line.  Once you reached the front, they told us to wait for for for in the lost-tickets line, which you did.  It changed many some-more slowly, given Ticketmaster had never sent them the mislaid tickets, as well as they were copy them out upon demand.  So, after watchful about fifteen mins upon the third line, you eventually had the tickets as well as proceeded to the dull embankment subsequent to will-call.  Guster was still starting strong, right away personification my the the single preferred song, so you were unequivocally ready to get inside.  Sadly, you were told you right away had to wait for for for upon the first, quarter-of-a-mile prolonged line.  We were flattering cranky.  We’re kind of sleepy of waiting in line.  But, wait for for for you did, along with any alternative late-twentysomething early-thirtysomething in Brooklyn, ready to relive their golden years upon Brooklyn’s front lawn.

We done it inside usually in time to listen to the last 3 songs Guster played.  We were unhappy to skip many of the set, yet what you did listen to was fantastic, so all was not lost.  I’m in consistent astonishment of their drummer.  After the bit, Ben Folds Five came on, as well as whilst they proposed off slow, they unequivocally picked up as well as the set was in conclusion unequivocally great.  They played “Brick,” which I’ve never listened live, so which was unequivocally cool, as well as had the assembly singing along in harmonies, which is the single of my the the single preferred tools of saying them.  Ben Folds was reduction talkative than in the past when I’ve seen him, yet still gave the good show.  In the mangle in in in in in between Ben Folds Five as well as BNL, Guster came out as well as gave the mini-set of 3 acoustic songs, which you didn’t hear, yet which Roger unequivocally enjoyed.  you still have unequivocally lustful memories of Vertical Horizon entrance out to pointer autographs when you saw them during West Point in center school, so you have the soft-spot for bands entrance out in to the assembly in in in in in in between sets.  It usually feels unequivocally good as well as personable.  you was reduction vehement for BNL, usually given you was so vehement for Guster as well as Ben Folds, yet they incited out to be implausible performers, as well as unequivocally seemed similar to they were carrying the blast.  They brought members of the alternative bands out for roughly any song, were unequivocally droll as well as talkative in in in in in in between any song, as well as during “One Week,” the lead thespian as well as bassist did the small whim concurrent jumping as well as bouncing upon instruments.  And then, to tip it all off, they did the pop-song cover miscellany for their last song, which was the single of the biggest as well as funniest things I’ve seen in ages.  you was super-impressed, as well as unequivocally had the good time.

Ben Folds!

We’ve been to the couple of concerts of people you used to adore in the past, as well as they’re mostly usually the small depressing.  They’re older, we’re older, as well as something has left seared in my adore of music.  Concerts usually do not have the same sorcery they had when you was 16.  But this was different.  Sure, there have been Guster-babies now, with small Guster-onesies for them to wear during night.  Sure, the youngest chairman during this unison was concomitant his parents.  And yes, may be those spare jeans were the small parsimonious upon Robert Sledge.  But overall, it was such the lot of fun which those things didn’t make the difference during all.  They were all sprinkled with usually the small bit of teenage-magic-glitter.
