the swell season (not)

i'd bought tickets to see the swell season last night - front row, to boot. unfortunately, i just couldn't muster up the energy to go. boo.

marp went with a friend, though, and said it was absolutely fantastic. this makes me giddy because he'd never heard anything from the swell season before, it was one of my "hmmm, this concert looks like it'd be fun, lemme book it..."-things, so i'm glad it was as fabulous as i suspected it would be.

and of course, marp ended up with a setlist, haha:

props go to bramble - you totally made me curious enough to book the show, even though i've barely listened to them beyond the movie once. :)

oh, i'm glad marp was able to go and enjoyed it! i'm so sorry you're sick and weren't able to make it, though. :( next time they come around, or when the frames come around, you must go! totally worth it.

as a consolation, some video links for while you convalesce! (though hopefully you'll be feeling better before the time it would take to watch all of these.)
