Starting Off The Holidays

... with a BANG!

Sunday afternoon found us at a rare concert (rare as in I don't usually go to concerts;)  .. the Trans Siberian Orchestra was playing in Spokane, Washington.  The performance was OUTSTANDING!  If you haven't been to one of their shows, be sure to catch them if they are performing near you.  Picture Beethoven on crack ... and you've got a good idea of the energy, sound, fireworks,  flames and snow to kick it up a notch.  Thank you Patrick for the early Christmas present.

Ha! Beethoven on crack-love
it! Actually,I've liked these
guys for a long time. They
are great. So glad you were
able to go see them!

I like them! I've never seen them in concert but have heard their CD's.

p.s. I'm having a cookbook giveaway at my blog if you're interested!

Trish said...

Wow...look at their set, fantastic!
Sounds like a wonderful night out for you two lovebirds!

That is a sparkling start.

Today Muslims are celebrating Bakri Id (festival of the sacrifice) and Hindus are celebrating another religious day, so we are having lots of fire works.

Excellent! I've listened to them for years, too, but have not attended one of their concerts. Very happy you have - a truly wonderful gift!
