Yesterday was a really fun night! A few months ago we'd heard that Mumford and Sons were coming to Vancouver, and we were able to snag some tickets in a pre-sale. There were actually so many people who we knew also had tickets, but there was such a huge crowd that we didn't really see anyone familiar. I've been to a few concerts before, usually in smaller clubs or theatres, with lots of drunk people jumping around and electric guitar blaring in my ears, so having an outdoor concert with a gentler crowd was a nice change. The weather was lovely and though there were a few obnoxious concert-goers, it was really just...a pleasant concert. I know that sounds stupid, but it was just really nice, haha.
As far as the actual music goes, it was flawless. Mumford and Sons are such a great band and they played a ton of favourites, and I would say they sounded even better live. They had a horns section and a strings section and oh man, when the four main members harmonized..shivers. It was just so, so fun. A nice break from real life. I moved home after my summer course finished last week, so I'm just working and hanging out...I'm pretty ready to go back to school now! I miss my dorm friends and I miss being busy, plus I'm really not a fan of living in a small town again.
Just three more months of summer, and then I can go back. I hope they go by fast!
But in the meantime, it was a brilliant concert, and I'm so glad we were able to go. :)
