Do you know who Amos Lee is? Have you heard his music?
If you answered no to either of the above questions, shame on you!
I'll admit, I haven't always been an Amos Lee enthusiast. I liked his stuff, but it wasn't my go to Pandora station or anything. Well, that all changed last night when I went to see him live at the Durham Performing Arts Center. The tickets were a gift a few months back and to be honest, the concert kind of snuck up on me. In fact, I almost sold them in order to have prime seats at a bar for the Panthers game instead. SO GLAD I DIDN'T. What an incredible concert it was. I said over and over again throughout the show that I think his voice is the best I've ever heard live.
His encore really did make my month though...here's a little snippet from what he played.
Were you as obsessed with Boyz II Men as I was?! I played their tapes (omg-I'm old) and CDs out. When Amos--we're totally on a first name basis now--busted this song out to close the show, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.
I would have taken a post-concert photo but my date was preoccupied with getting us to the nearest bar to catch the second half of the Panthers game. I was so excited to wear our brand new "The Socialite" in black as a dress with black tights and booties. It was adorable and super comfortable. They are selling so fast online tonight that I don't know if they'll be around for long, but take a look here.
Excuse me while I go back to listening to Amos on Pandora...Keep it Loose Keep it Tight is my current song crush. Enjoy!
