Songs That Bring You Back

Posted Aug 18 2010 4:55am

I didn’t get home until super late last night, so I decided to save my recap of dinner and the concert for this morning. I’m sure you understand, right? ;-)

Early in the evening, Mal and I headed to the Atlantic Beer Garden to meet some friends before the Ray LaMontagne and David Gray show at the Bank of America Pavilion.

I started with an Allagash White at the bar.

Allagash White is my go-to beer for summer. It’s perfect for warm weather! :-D

When the roof deck opened, we headed upstairs to finish our beers and enjoy the view of the Boston skyline and harbor.

Recognize my dress? My blog buddy, Kath , gave it to me. It’s made by Mahi Gold and it was so comfortable to wear! :-D

With dinner, I enjoyed another Allagash White.

And shared a plate of nachos with Mal.

The nachos were nothing special– just your typical bar nachos with lots of cheese and limited toppings, but they totally hit the spot. I can’t remember the last time I had nachos!

Ray LaMontagne opened for David Gray, so we made sure not to miss a single second of his performance.

Most of the songs that Ray played were from his newest album, which was released yesterday. I really liked his new stuff. I definitely need to get my hands on his new album.

Concertgoers: Mal, Josh, and Danielle! :-D

David Gray was full of energy and amazing as usual, but last night’s set was so similar to the  show I went to in October , I didn’t get to hear anything “new.” Of course, I enjoyed seeing David in concert, but I was a little bummed. He did, however, play an outstanding acoustic version of “Shine,” which made me happy!

David played a number of songs that “brought me back.” I first started listening to DG in the summer of 2000 when I lived on Block Island with some college girlfriends. Pretty much any song from his White Ladder album brings me back to that summer.

Similarly, anytime I hear “The One I Love,” I think of Mal and cutting the cake on our wedding day.

This morning’s breakfast included lots of nut butter! I spread cashew butter on my whole wheat toast and peanut butter on the extra banana pieces. Mmm!

Mal offered to grab Starbucks, so I’m waiting on an iced soy latte right now! ;-)
