Carole King

Carole King 007

First off, the power came on Sunday afternoon, one week after it went off. Hooray!

Monday night, I attended a Carole King concert with my mom, aunts, two cousins, and one of my mom's good friends. It was a fun girls night out, although I worked late so I barely made it on time.

We sat up in the balcony, so the photos are kind of blurry (plus, we weren't actually supposed to be taking them anyway).

I have loved Carole King's music for a long long time. My mom is a huge fan, so I grew up listening to "Tapestry" on vinyl. When I was in the first grade, my school put on a production of "Really Rosie", which Carole did the music for. Even when I was in college, listening to "Tapestry" and belting out "I Feel the Earth Move" on the drive to Athens with my mom was a huge tradition.

Needless to say, I was very excited.

Carole was excellent. She put on a great show, including old favorites and some new songs. She rocked out on guitar and tickled the ivories. She laughed, joked, and kept everyone thoroughly entertained. What an experience.
