Last night I finally fulfilled a life long dream of seeing Garrison Keillor do Prairie Home Companion live. Of course, it was actually just a Friday night rehersal for the Saturday show so I’m not sure if it truly counts. But I am okay with the ambiguity as it means I have an excuse to see him again.
Guess what I brought with me…
We found our seats in the pavilion just in time, because about ten minutes after this photo was taken a crazy thunderstorm blew in! Originally I had wanted to buy lawn tickets to see this show but I am glad my parents talked me out of it. Otherwise we would have looked like this:
The show was brilliant. The creativity of the sound effects guy just blows me away! When we bought the tickets they hadn’t announced what band we would be seeing, so I didn’t know until that night we would be watching the Wailin’ Jennys. They happen to be one of my favorite female bands, their harmonies are incredible. The News From Lake Woebegone has always been my weekend sermon, and this one was spot on.
All in all a very special night indeed.
