This week I had another music religious moment; quite like the one I had with John Boutte in NOLA. On Monday, Mumford & Sons played for the first time in Alabama.
And it was unbelievable. Their encore was incredible (minus the rendition of Sweet Home Alabama. I swear to god, nothing will make you hate that song more than living in this state. I tell you; the appeal to that song is gone), but the most favorite part of the encore? They did a rendition of Springsteen’s “She’s on Fire,” which promptly made me cry, because I’m a big baby.
Their show lasted about two hours, and the entire crowd stood on their feet for the entire time. Which was a cause for me to take off my boots, because I felt like my feet were going to fall off.
That’s right. I took the shoes off in the middle of a concert. Could have been the most hippie thing I’ve ever done in my entire life.
Ehh, so be it.
Honestly, if you have any way of seeing these guys in concert, I highly recommend it. You will definitely not regret it.
* On a side note, some crazy ass meteor thing happened right in the middle of the second opener. We all thought it was a flare, or a firework.
