Keeping A Promise - Picture Blog

Sunday, September 12, 2010

Because I promised RADANOLS_GIRL that I'd get pictures when I wore the dress she gave me during her visit a few weeks back. :)

We went to a concert last night - Over The Rhine did their "end of the summer" show (which has become something of a yearly tradition) at Moonlight Gardens. The venue - which is an outdoor "garden party" type location at Cincinnati's Coney Island (aka Old Coney) - has a special place in my heart: they have big bands and swing dancing there that my parents used to frequent when they were first together (AND my high school used to hold proms there, at least they did until MY prom, which was moved to the Netherland Hilton Hall of Mirrors downtown). It's a pretty casual venue, but I wanted to dress up, so I wore what has now become dubbed my "Stevie Nicks" dress - check out the SLEEVES on this baby!

I snagged this shot of my handsome mate before the show started - I think I'm impressed with my phone's photo capabilities!

And here are a couple of shots of the band during the show! (I really need to remember not to wear mascara when we go see OTR - honestly, there are TOO many songs that hit me in one way or another and elicit tears)

It was a great night. That makes my 34th OTR show in 4 years (21 of which happened the first year 'Yote and I were dating - meeting up for OTR shows around the state made for a great excuse to travel and see each other). emoticon

If you haven't actually listened to the youtube videos I put up - go back and check them out. Truly, this is an amazing band. And check out their show schedule (also posted in the last blog) for the rest of the year - they do GREAT live shows. You won't regret it.

    LOL - I met 'Yote on livejournal, where his handle is "IrishCoyote" - I started referring to him as Coyote online, and then shortened it to 'Yote. The name he goes by - D.M. - has nothing to do with his actual name either, it's a "nom de plume" he created for writing, and most of his friends know him that way. His family calls him R.T. because of his actual legal names (which he hates - not the R.T., but the legal names). :) Amuses me that I'm with someone who has more names than I do (I have my legal name, SCA name, and of course Euphrates).

    And the braids are handy for working out (and he likes pigtails). :)

    Euphrates, you look Wonderful! i am so glad to see your hair NOT in braids. i wondered what it looked like down. very beautiful!
    so YOTE is short for Coyote? i had been wondering about that too. i thought YOTE was definitely a different name, but there isn't much that you say or do that isn't different from my boring life on the farm! lol. that is a really nice shot of Yote. as i tell my hubby, Hunka-Hunka!! WooHoo!
