I haven't been able to post in a while, 10 hour + work days does not an energetic blogger make.
I just wanted to say hello, and wax poetic about the Florence and the Machine show last night at the B of A pavillion.
That woman knows how to sing. I swear she has to train physically as well as vocally. Likely both at the same time, considering the rapid speed with which she ran across the stage belting her lungs out.
Obvi the songs I knew best were my faves. During Cosmic Love a sheet of twinkly star-lights shone from stage. And the crowd went literally crazytrain when she belted out Dog Days are Over. We all had a sing-a-long.
Florence knows how to engage the crowd too. Several times she mentioned having never played in front of such a huge group before, and made Friends references while talking about the massive lobster she ate earlier that day.
We laughed. We cried. We sang our lil hearts out.
I don't think any of the major media outlets have reviewed it yet, but trust me, friends, if you have a chance to see her live, take it and run with it.
