Summerfest (II & III).

Our first night at Summerfest wound up being more about cheese curds & the Sky Glide than Maroon 5, but Wednesday’s triple-header of  Cage the Elephant, Florence & the Machine, and The Black Keys was an AWESOME experience. Honestly? I’m not a huge concert or music person (I know; I’m weird), but I LOVED this show. Every group had such energy and gave an incredible performance. Florence’s voice is even more powerful live! Adam, Michael, and I went to Chili Lili’s beforehand to fuel up for the big event and met Anna there. It was just so nice going to a show with assigned seats ha. Must do this at least once every year; such a relatively relaxed way to experience Summerfest. Tonight I went to watch Adam play volleyball at the beach (did some watching, some reading of Hunger Games whilst chillin’ on Alex’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles towel) for a few hours and then a bunch of us trekked back to Summerfest to catch Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and a litle bit of G.Love (cheese curds may have made an appearance again as well). It was worth it just to hear a very long version of “Home”, see friends, and meet new people.

If you don’t live three blocks from Summerfest, well, I personally wouldn’t go more than once a year ha (just looking at the traffic made me feel claustrophobic). So, obviously, you should just move here. 😉 I probably say it too often, but I love living here. At 25-years-old I doubt we’re settling down in any one place soon, which is both exciting and a smidgen sad, only because I’m so in love with our first little home together. You’re so sneaky, Milwaukee. You’ve made this Illinoisan love many things over the border.

  1. Sounds like a great time! I haven’t made it down there and doubt I will this year. Sad 😦

  2. I hear ya on the parking, it’s madness down there (We take the Vespa down and park in motorcycle parking). If you live in the city, a Vespa is like man’s best friend. Love it.

    How the summerfest noise and traffic in your neighborhood? Tolerable?

    • Oooh! A Vespa does sound perfect. The noise isn’t bad at all (can enjoy the faint sounds of Summerfest with the windows open/outside, but somehow our apt. complex seems to block out all obnoxious sounds ha), but the traffic could definitely be a pain. I have admittedly been pretty much avoiding driving, especially at night—which luckily is possible right now.

  3. It sounds like a fantastic time! Parking at these kinds of things is always such a nightmare. It’s lucky you’re strategically placed. 🙂
