Sufjan Stevens + Caedmon’s Call = Fun couple of days

Filed under: — joe @ 12:24 am

We went to go see Sufjan Stevens play in Philly on Thursday and man, what an amazing concert! Honestly, it’s easily in the “Top 5 Best Concerts” that I’ve seen. I was in complete awe and I don’t think I’ve completely processed it yet. We also ran into Mark and Karyn Traphagen as well as their daughter Hannah and it was great to see them… apparently so great that we saw them again Friday night! We all went to go see Caedmon’s Call play (also near Philly) and enjoyed a fun evening of great music and friends. The band sounded amazing (despite some sound issues) and I personally enjoyed the Cliff/Andy O banter which was in top form… possibly due to everyone being extremely tired. Bryan and Erica Allain were there as well but since he’s a Red Sox fan and they beat my Orioles last night… that’s all we’ll be saying about them.

After the show we hung out and talked about Lost, The Office and I tried out Andy’s new baritone guitar which sounds AWESOME! I’m definitely thinking about getting one, maybe after the cd is done. Speaking of the cd, a few Caedmon’s bandmembers will be helping out on it when I’m in Nashville so I’m looking forward to working with them. After all that, Rhonda and I made it home around 2ish and watched the newest Office episode (which we loved)… I guess all the talk about the show got to us!

Tomorrow is a big day because (Lord willing) Rhonda and I will be joining the church we’ve been attending, so that’s VERY exciting and I’m really looking forward to it. We’ve been blessed to be a part of this church and it’ll be nice to finally make it “official”.

Well, I guess that’s it, that was our big week… I hope you all are having a great weekend and I’ll talk to you real soonish. Take care!
