As mentioned earlier, Saturday night we drove down to Mystic Lake Casino in Shakopee for Miranda Lambert. There was no opener, which was kinda a bummer. It was seated, which in some ways was a bummer, but by the end we were all standing. I kind of would have liked it to have been in some dive bar, but then the Sia show on Tuesday reminded me of how short I am and how much really crowded shows suck.
However, Lambert was great and rocked out most of my favorite songs, not all that I wanted to hear, but lots of good ones. We didn't realize the casino was dry, also a bummer. And no encore? What?
We braved a late Sunday night show, cause we love Needtobreathe so much. They were lovely, even if they didn't play my favorite song. We were super close to the stage, for nice photos. For an encore, they came out into the crowd and played an acoustic rendition of "Streets of Gold".
Then, on Tuesday we went with Erica (on her 26th birthday!) to Sia at the Fine Line. It was the first time I had been to the Fine Line and I must say, sold out shows there aren't the greatest for short little girls. HarMar Superstar opened and I was amazed at the cockiness and superfun music coming out of a tiny, odd man. Sia was good and played the same set as in November, but this time I knew all of the words, so fun.
I didn't take any pictures cause we were so far away and there were signs everywhere warning against it. I'd rather keep my camera, thanks. Plus, I have good ones from her show in November.
