On Thursday, Katie and I went to see The Civil Wars at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe. They had come to town back in November, but Joy’s voice was, as she put it, reminiscent of James Earl Jones, so they had to reschedule. While we hadn’t planned on going to the original show, that night we saw tweets about the cancellation and that instead of performing they’d be meeting fans by their bus at the hotel. So we drove on over and stood in line for a while and finally got a signed CD and a photo-op. In this picture, you’ll notice that three of the four of us are happy to be there.
Because they were so kind and gracious when we met them (and because their music is fantastic), when I saw they had rescheduled for another visit, I jumped on it and got us tickets as a Christmas present. It was a wonderful evening of music, and a really fun atmosphere… albeit for relatively sad songs.
By the way, they’re also nominated for a couple of Grammys, which is exciting.
Anyway, here’s their music video for “Forget Me Not.”
