We had a quick St. Louis trip yesterday for the Arcade Fire concert. My parents were kind enough to come along to watch Sawyer as we went to the show. The weather held up and allowed us to have a wonderful afternoon at the St. Louis Zoo. Sawyer had such a wonderful time and he even got to go swimming at the hotel with Grandma & Grandpa.
The concert was amazing! I have been an Arcade Fire fan since they launched their first album "Funeral" around 2004. John doesn't know much about them but is always up for a good show, I think he would admit it was awesome. Even the opening acts we're great...The Tune-Yards, a crazy percussion/reggae/electronic group was so fun (check them out here) and then they also had a DJ, Kid Koala, who put on a great show (check him out here). I loved the set & theatrics plus on the invitation it said "Dress up or wear a costume", that made for some great people watching.
