Kings of Leon...




So I have been extremely busy this week and haven't had a chance to blog about the concert we went to on Monday night (the last Monday I'll have off for a long while since school is starting up) so Blake, Spencer and I met up with Blake's sister Chelsea and a new "friend" of hers- Chuck to see Kings of Leon. We got there just before they played and it was totally worth being out until 12:30 am on a weeknight even when I have to be to work by 6am and am doing testing all week. Yeah, it was that good.
I've been spinning their new album "Because of the Times" and am just so phased. The singer has such a unique "smoker since 12" and "prepubescent screech" that I just find so adorable. It does kind of make me giggle when I read about how the 4 guys (3 brothers and a cousin) are all way into fashion and will only wear skinny jeans but can't find any "skinny" enough so they have their mom tailor them for them. How funny is that? What I thought was more weird was seeing them in concert post-beard/hippie look to find that the lead singer kinda looked like Kelly Reed to me. It was dark ok. And I was pretty far away from the stage. I just got my eyes checked too- that is pretty scary. I know check the pick below. Maybe he just looked like he had red hair under those lights.
Regardless Blake and Spencer both thought he looked like Ashton Kutcher- which I think I'm much closer thinking he looks like Kelly Reed (in skinny jeans). Whatever... here were my favorite songs played at the show... Ragoo, Charmer, Knocked Up, and Arizona (until the slutty drunk girl in front of me started making out with her boyfriend). Funny what image can ruin a perfectly sexy song. Over all I was so glad to finally get to see them!! I just loved how crunchy the bass sounds live. It was amazing. Enough said- see them or get the album- you will be phased.

PS- tomorrow night is the A&A CD release show. Be there or be square. 7pm Womens Club of Mesa. $10. LLLLLLAter
