I am typically not a gig-goer. I am too lazy to be inside a crowd with those girls in … (insert ‘animal printed’ / ‘stripes’ / ‘whatever is on GoGirl magazine’ here) and mini outfits.
However, last night, it was Copeland and I decided to come. First, Copeland was one of my favorite band (as I told you in this post) and they have my attention. Second, it would be their first and the last gig in here. Third, I’ve dedicated too many of their tracks to my boyfriend :P
The show was started at 9 PM, (after 1 hour waiting) and they opened it with ‘Priceless’. Priceless is a song I would recommend to you guys who intend to melt a heart…
Cause I need you / Like the dragonflies’ wings need the wind / Like the orphan needs home once again / Like heaven needs more to come in / I need you here like you’ve always been //
They went on for about 2 hours. They performed all of my favorites; ‘Take Care’, ‘Control Freak’, ‘Coffee’, ‘On The Safest Ledge’, ‘California’. Yes, also ‘You Have My Attention’, and… ‘Brightest’. How did it go? I’d borrow the lines from IndyWeek.com to define it: Airy falsetto voicing sentimental verses works against a backdrop of dreamy keyboards and a lush rhythm section, as it long has.
It was beautiful. They have been Copeland.
Could it be so beautiful just because it was a farewell?
(PS: I lost my voice last night because of the flu.)
