Yes, we went to the Arcade Fire show last night! I cannot believe it still.
We went to see Arcade Fire at The Garden last year in September for their Infinite Content tour, it was our second time seeing them; we went a few years before to see their Reflekktor Tour. A few months ago, I saw this show added to the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. When I had seen it I mentioned it to my husband in passing, but followed the conversation acknowledging this busy Summer and backing myself out of it. I don’t know why I do that, but I do. Thinking we probably wouldn’t have the time I guess.
Then this week happened.
It has been a week of surprises… Why? I don’t really know, but I try not to question things because I like surprises. Actually, my husband does this sometimes for no reason, but I think it’s because he feels guilty working so much.. or at least that is what I feel.
So, Thursday, of last week, my husband came home with a vintage map of our town. Something I had mentioned I wanted because the history here is kinda cool. It is a lithograph from 1872, hand painted, and it shows the layout of the town with streets/pin dots for houses with owners last names. It looks so bare. Our house is not on the map, though our street is. We spent all night Thursday after the kids went to bed looking into the history of some of the street names and neighborhoods from our Memorial Hall Library website. I just had so much fun looking at all the history!!
Then on Saturday he came home with a baseball cap I have been wanting for a year or so. It’s the Fenway Park Citgo sign trucker hat. I just liked it to wear to the beach or when we travel and I don’t feel like doing my hair. IT IS SO CUTE ON! I can’t wait to wear it on our lake trip in a couple of days!
THEN, he tells me on Sunday night that he planned out a date night for us. Nothing more. Then Monday mentioned that he got us tickets to see Arcade Fire!! AHHHH WHAT!?!?! And that he reserved dinner too. I was so excited to hear that!! He got us tickets in Section 2, row U. SO CLOSE!!
The night of the show, we had dinner at Legal’s Harborside, my favorite spot on the harbor. After talking there a few minutes, he told me we had VIP access at the show. Which meant CLEAN BATHROOMS! YAHH! haha I hate public bathrooms…blech.
The show was amazing. They are definitely a great band to see live. Their set list was different from the other times we had seen them, and I LOVED IT. They played a lot of their older songs, which made the place go nutty. A lot of super fans there, not just me. The whole place sang along and danced, it was a lot of fun. I hope to get the chance to see them again someday.
Here are some shots of the night..and a video of their song Reflekktor. So. much. fun!!
