Florence and the Fourth!

Happy Fourth of July, everybody!  I hope you had a wonderful day and evening enjoying the freedoms we have!

I was lucky enough to cross off an item on my list this evening!  #7 Attend a concert at White River State Park.

White River State Park is a green space across from the Indianapolis Zoo and The Indianapolis Indians Victory Field.  On any given day you can see people walking or biking around the park, lying in the grass and relaxing or playing a game of frisbee.

A few years ago a bandshell was built and since then the area has hosted a variety of musical acts and festivals.  It's a short walk from the downtown canal and ever since the bandshell was built, I have wanted to see a concert there.

Tonight I finally got a chance and went to see an excellent concert put on by Florence and the Machine.  The music was great and the atmosphere is perfect for a summer concert, but the audience faces west during the show, so the sun was directly in our eyes for most of the concert.

If I go to a concert there again, I will probably splurge and get the reserved seats rather than the general admission.  The reserved seats were shaded by the bandshell and probably had a much better view of the stage and performer. 

Thanks so much to my friend Patrick for going to the concert with me!  I hope he had fun!

Oh, I love Florence and the Machine! That must have been a spectacular concert. It's been years since I've been able to attend one, so I just live vicariously through those that do. ;-)
