For those of you who don't know who Graham Colton is...well get to know him...i've been a fan of his music since high school and love his new cd he has out. It's great music along with great lyrics. So here is my me date evening :)
started my drive off with a little jamba juice :) who doesn't love jamba!?
As I was parking I realized that the theater was right across the street from lolo! lolo is this amazing tapas restaurant that i've heard alot about but i am never on that side of Portland to try it. So after grabbing my ticket and some time to kill i headed across the street for a little dinner.
Ended up getting a romaine salad with a lemon vinaigrette and roasted almonds.... yum! and i was a big spender with this meal! A whole $6! Delish!
After dinner I headed across to the theater. I walk in and guess who's standing there?? Yep! Graham Colton himself :) We had a little conversation and when I told him I had driven an hour and a half to see him he told me to pick out a cd to take for free :) How sweet is that! Then we got a quick picture...i do wish we would have taken two.. Not the best picture but all well:)
since i have all of his cd's i decided to take one of his EP's. Listening to it now as i write this :)
Curtis Peoples started the night off. I love acoustic sets. I feel like if you can pull off a great acoustic set then you got it made. Nothing but you and your music. And he was amazing live!
Then it was time for Graham Colton :) I must say that I have never been to a concert where all my favorite were played. And this concert ALL of my favorites were! Probably helped that I requested two of them..and he played them :) Pretty Amazing!
Anyways....it was a great evening and great music and a great me date. the only downer...driving back to corvallis, hitting a traffic jam due to construction and almost falling asleep 15 different times...all well it was worth it.
