Barenaked Ladies Concert!

Chris and I had so much fun Friday night that I couldn't possibly skip posting about it!   He dropped the bomb on me a couple of days before that he wasn't going to be able to take the whole day off as we had originally planned.  So, I spent the morning running a few errands and I went to the gym and got some lap swimming in for about an hour.  Then I went home and started to get ready and just waited around for him to get off work.

I was hoping to head out by no later than 1pm.  You never know how Baton Rouge traffic is going to be especially on a Friday and since Lake Charles is about 2 hours away, I just wanted to make sure we got there in plenty of time to get some goofing off done before the concert!

Yea, that didn't quite happen.  Chris ended up working a lot later than even he expected.  I think we finally headed out the door by 3pm!  Before we left though I did manage to try on some older clothes.  I was THAT bored.   I tried on my wedding dress and it fit!  Sorry no pic, but I'll put it on again and take some soon.  It's not big on me now or anything but considering the fact that I actually do fit into it is going to be my NSV for tomorrow!  I goofed around with some outfits and finally settled on this one.


After a relatively smooth trip, we made it to the Casino!  Could this be tour busses?!


We took some time exploring the L'Auberge Casino and put about $30 in the machines.  We didn't win, ah well.  After that we decided to go ahead and eat at the buffet and then do a bit more exploring. 





About an hour before the concert, we made our way to the Event Pavillion.  We were literally the 5th and 6th people in line!  When the doors opened, we snagged this spot right in front!


Ok enough blabbing, here's some pics from the concert!



The opening act came out and presented Ed (the lead singer) with a birthday cake! It was his 43rd birthday.



For the finale, they did a whole boy band dance, a classic rap and a few other medleys of classic tunes!


The concert was amazing.  If you are a fan, you must see them live!  They were great!!!!  Not sure how well these will come out but I did attempt to take some videos of a few of their songs.

  2. It looks like you had a great time! When I was about 15, a couple friends and I spent the entire night, outside, waiting in line for BNL's tickets. It was awesome. :)
