Music Monday: The Civil Wars

You may remember THIS Music Monday post from two weeks ago. I thought I'd do a follow-up post and share how amazing the show was. Heather and I got to the Egyptian right when the doors opened. We stopped at the merch table where Heather bought Barton Hollow on vinyl. We made our way to our seats which were in the very front row. We were so incredibly excited! Rayland Baxter opened and he was great. We ended up buying his cd on the way out of the show.

There were a couple annoying drunk girls at the show, but luckily they ended up getting kicked out part way through The Civil Wars set. Besides that, the show was amazing. I loved how intimate and raw it was. It was just Joy and John Paul with a guitar and occasionally a piano. It was so beautiful.

After the show we hung around, waiting and wondering if they were going to come out for a meet and greet. Luckily we didn't have to wait long as they were escorted out front of the theater. We were already close to the doors so we were some of the first people to meet them. We got a picture with them and they signed Heather's new vinyl. It was a little rushed since there was a line. In all the chaos we didn't hang around long enough to find and meet Allister Ann. I was pretty bummed because I absolutely love her photography so much. She's one of my inspirations. I guess there's always next time. :)

Here are some gorgeous pictures and tour videos that Allister Ann shot.
