Sunday night a friend and I went to the Travis concert at the Showbox at the Market. To put it simply, it was mesmerizing! I fell in love with Dougie Payne and Fran Healy that night. It's a bit odd that not too many people here know who they are though because they're super famous in the U.K. But I think I need to stop obsessing over married men (i.e. Christian Bale , James McAvoy). I don't think it's a healthy habit.
Back to the concert, the highlight of the evening was when Fran Healy came down to the audience level while performing Falling Down! I was literally less than a foot away from the guy. I could've touched him, but I always get shy when I'm near someone famous. It happened with Lily Allen, Sir Mix-a-lot, and Sung Kang. Well once he came down to our level, he started dancing with a bearded fellow while singing "I've got a kick out of you" to the guy. It was such a surreal moment. A funny surreal moment but the fact that he wasn't afraid to get down into the crowd was quite humbling.
Another characteristic I liked about Fran was the way he said certain words. This may sound strange but it was incredibly attractive when he used profane words like f*** or shite during the show. It must've been the Scottish accent.
Overall, I hope they come back to the Emerald City again. Be sure to check them out in a city near you. I guarantee you'll enjoy their show as much as I did.

As of late, Seattle has been blessed with wonderful weather. I'm enjoying myself and soaking up as much vitamin D as possible (Seattle-lites are deficient in vitamin D). I went to another concert last night, so I will post photos from that concert very soon!

p.s. Have you noticed I'm wearing Russian Red again? Time to wear a different shade!

I have to go to Seattle at least once before I die.
It's just a city that really attracts me in some way...

Thanks for the comment on my blog.
I use a Canon EOS 400D. But it's all about the lens: 'Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II'

Haven't heard of Travis in such a looong time. He was quite famous in my country too.

That was such a cute concert story, I love it when performers get personal.
You should stick with Russian Red, it suits you.
