We went with a couple of friends, one of whom thought it was pretty funny that I knew all the words to his songs. Hey, a white girl can memorize lyrics, too.
P.S. Donald Glover songs are not mom-approved.
On Saturday, a photographer came out and took pictures of us, so we had to look cute. How do you think we did?
Pressure and Slippin by them, both of which they played, including a bunch of other songs from their debut album. Although they're not well-known here yet, their stuff is great to snap and dance along to.
100 Yard Dash, Stayin in Love, and Sure Hope You Mean It? I'd really like to have Love That Girl played at our wedding.
I'm used to going to shows for 20-somethings, and it was great to see a mixed-age group with lots of dancing and people getting into the performance. I want to go to more soul shows!
Back to recipes and outfits tomorrow.
