I know Mount Rushmore is supposed to be a majestic place, but it wasn't all that great this day for me.
1. I woke up at 4am after thinking that I was going to get eaten by whatever was out in the backcountry of Badlands National Park.
2. The abundance (and I mean THOUSANDS) of motorcycles and all the people riding them were a little much. I happened to be there during the week of the Sturgis Bike Rally.
3. The parking for Mount Rushmore cost $10 dollars, and was a parking deck. Just not what I expected.
Hopefully you had a better experience?
Thievery Corporation – 930 Club – Tuesday Show
Tuesday Night, met up with Steve and Erin to go to the Thievery Corporation Show @ the 930 club. We took the metro over, and got in just before the show was starting. We had been looking forward to this for a while, and had bought tickets about a month prior (which was necessary) because they sold out.
Chance had it that I saw my friend Brittany there and we all got to hang out. She’s left the next day or so to head out to Utah to go snowboarding at Park City which sounds almost as cool as our upcoming Colorado trip!
We worked our way up the right side of the club and got pretty awesome views of the band. (It’s hard to have a bad view at the 930 club.)
The show was really awesome, and we got to talk to my friend Andy who was working Lighting after the show was over. Brittany and I had been talking about our photo hobby and how cool a press pass would be. So… I asked for one… and got a pass… That would lead me to going to their show this past Friday which I will post about soon (It was even more amazing!).
I have been listening to their CDs a lot recently, and here are two of the more popular songs you might recognize:
