#542 Vacation Virginia #3 - Great Big Sea

Vacation Virginia #3 is really just a late night.  But that happens so rarely, it counts as a vacation.

Great Big Sea, one of my all-time favorite bands, is playing at the Warner Theater in Washington DC.  We convince our DC friend Trista to join us and we drive 3 hours north to meet her, along with Alan, Sean, and Bob.

The boys open with Ordinary Day, though it's not.  On this their 20th anniversary tour, they play two full sets from 8:00 to 11:00, including many of our favorites.  I especially love those a cappella songs with Sean on the drum - like River Driver. 

I've been lucky enough to see Great Big Sea six times - but never twice in the same state.  My goal is to one day see them play in front of a home-town crowd at Mile One Stadium in Saint John's, Newfoundland.

Yours in looking forward to the next one,
