How You Like Me Now? Baby Reyna's First Concert

Last night, Dennis and I took Baby Reyna to their first concert!  We went to see The Heavy, one of my favorite bands, at Fitzgerald's.  It was a totally last minute decision (probably one of our last last minute decisions for the next 15 years or so); I found out they were in town while driving in to work and I bought tickets as soon as I could.

The Silent Comedy opened, and I had no idea what to expect.  I'm not hip enough to know who this band is, and honestly, I don't really care about opening bands anymore; I'm just there for the headliner.  I know opening acts are a really great way to get to know up and coming bands, but it can be such a hit or miss.  Some openers make it big, but most usually don't.  But man, oh man, am I glad we made it for this opening act!  These guys were great (and well dressed--men, start dressing like it's 1860 and grow out those mustaches; you'll all look amazing)!  I'm terrible at describing what a band sounds like or what genre of music they play, so here's a video of a live performance they did back in July of 2011.  Also worth mentioning is one of their songs is being used as the theme song for the History Channel's new show The Men Who Built America, and if I'm not mistaken, they also had a song used as the theme for Hatfields & McCoys, too.  Enjoy!

After The Silent Comedy got the crowd going, The Heavy brought the house down!!!  For those of you who don't know who The Heavy are, you've definitely most likely heard some of there music here or maybe even here.  Either way, this band is amazing and pumps out the most epic movie soundtrackesque music.  I can't listen to them without storyboarding.  When they took to the stage the crowd went wild, and it was a good thing I was sitting in the balcony instead of down on the floor.  The band's energy totally filled up the venue and their set was indescribably awesome!  I'm so glad we decided to go, and I think Baby Reyna liked it, too.  At least they were kicking and squirming the whole show, so I'll just choose to interpret that as headbangin.  Here's a video of one of my favorite songs by The Heavy.  Enjoy!!!
