flying horses

On Saturday, we went to see Dispatch's reunion tour with a group of friends at TD Garden (where the Bruins and Celtics play) in downtown Boston... we bought some very cheap, bad seats originally, but amazingly, a friend was able to get us seats in the center of the front two rows about ten feet from the stage. I had never heard of Dispatch until moving to Massachusetts for college, but I remember someone playing them the first night I moved into my freshman year dorm and have loved them ever since. They broke up around 2004 and I thought I'd never get to see them live, so being front row in a concert of 80,000 people was extra special.

My camera's battery died after taking the first photo, but I got some okay ones with my iPhone.

This video was on the Dispatch website-- you can see Mike (light blue shirt) and I hugging and dancing in the second row above the two empty seats :)



They were so good! They played every song I was hoping to hear and some new ones that I loved, and just had so much energy... at one point they went out into the crowd dressed in Bruins jerseys and did some impromptu rapping and dancing and other random stuff. I even caught a drumstick at the end of the show. The band played for three hours straight and it was one of the best shows I've ever been to... it's so great to go to a concert or any kind of performance and really see people loving what they are doing. So inspired!
