What a Fun Night, with Added Drama
Last night Mike & I went out for a date. We had such a great time (besides sitting in traffic). We ate at our favorite Chinese restaurant - Shanghai Garden, in Issaquah. I'm actually writing a review on it so I guess it served us two purposes last night. After our yummy, yummy dinner we headed down to the Tacoma Dome for the Dixie Chicks concert. I think the last concert we went to was over a year ago and it was at a local bar.
We got to the Dome about 20 minutes late which was OK though since we had never heard of the opening act. I don't even remember his name but I think Mike summed up his singing pretty well - Awkward!! Especially since he sang "Natural Woman" during his set. The Dixie Chicks, on the other hand, were great! I love going to concerts where they actually sound the same live as they do on their CD's. Our seats weren't the best but luckily they had a projection TV that zoomed in on their faces throughout the show. Of course though, there has to be some sort of drama going on. I have no idea what it was about but while the third song was being sung all of a sudden people started standing up and getting out of their seats. I figured they were just going to start dancing or something. Nope - a fight broke out about 8 seats away from us. Luckily one of the guys got kicked out and not allowed to come back (wow, was his girlfriend M-A-D!) and the other two missed about half of the show. THEN while they were still "looking into the situation" Mike decided to move to stretch his legs a little and security began pointing at him! Thankfully they realized he was not a part of it so nothing came of that.
The Chicks sang all of their past hits and quite a few from their new album. They put on such a great show!! They even dedicated a song to K-Fed in light of the recent events that have happened to him. They sang "White Treash Wedding" for him. You can read the lyrics HERE - aren't they fitting?
Our neighbors were nice enough to watch Logan and according to Jayne he was "absolutely lovely" the whole night. I'm so glad that he was so well-behaved and didn't give them any trouble. Maybe we'll be able to do this a little more often :)
