Okay so the other awesome thing I did last weekend was to go see The National play! The Hollywood Bowl again so I won’t bore you with too many pictures since I still didn’t have very great seats & there were no fireworks this time. It was just so good & I really want to see them again in a more intimate venue! I’m barely coming down from the post-show needing to listen to them all the time, can’t sit still while listening to them, ohmygoodness, ohmygoodness! phase.
So yeah, it was really great! Even though I was such a zombie the next day at work, I can’t think of a better way to have spent the evening!

L.A. Phil did a really wonderful job! They played “Romeo & Juliet”, “Rococo Variations”, music from “Swan Lake”, & “1812”. “1812” is when the spectacular part of the spectacular began. Fireworks! It was so over-dramatic & very Tchaikovsky-y, I think he would have appreciated it.
At first it was like, “oh, fireworks, there they go.”
Then it was like, “Whoa!”
& then it was like “WHOAOAOAOOAOAOAOAOAOAO What even is this? Amazing! It’s amazing!”
