Last night, my friend and I attended a concert at Empire in Springfield, Va. My favorite musician, William Beckett, was one of the artists performing. I also discovered a new band, Hearts & Hands, whom I am quite smitten with.
Here are some pictures from last night:
After his performance, I hung around the merch table and bought some of his stuff as well as some stuff from Hearts & Hands. The lead singer of Hearts & Hands was chilling by the merch table and thanked me for getting some merch since that is where most bands earn their money. A little while later William came out and I got to say hey. It was so nice to see him again. He is such a sweetheart! (Excuse the red eye and demonic expression of enthusiasm that is my face.)
All in all, it was a pretty great night. Not my favorite concert I’ve been to, but still a nice outing.
[Note: There were several negative things that happened at this show regarding some of the other bands performing there that I am choosing to omit, because holding onto them is not going to let me have happy memories regarding William’s performance. If you’d like a play-by-play of the night, check out my tweets from last night.]
