Weekend Adventure Part 1

This past weekend I took off for a girls weekend with my friend Kathy to see one of our favorite groups perform.

Mipso is a quartet from North Carolina, their music is hard to describe, it's kind of like bluegrass meets blues meets southern church revival meets rock. They are the kind of group that seeps into your heart and soul.

We took off Friday morning heading up to Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We took Kathy's husband, Mikes, convertible, and it just made the experience that much more fun. With Mipso playing and us singing along the time breezed by as we drove west before heading towards Charlottesville VA for our first concert.

We stopped for linner (aka lunch/dinner) at Devil's Backbone Brewery before heading into town.

We checked into our hotel, opened a bottle of wine, had a few snacks, and got ready to leave for the Jefferson Theater

This was my second time attending one of their concerts, the first was amazing at The Birchmere with plenty of seating and an intimate setting. This concert was in a college town with minimal seating, lots of standing room and the crowd was younger, and louder...they talked through the whole performance...I'm gonna sound old here but DAMN so disrespectful. We still enjoyed the concert, and a bonus was ↓

We walked back to our hotel, talking about the music and how excited we were for the next days' adventure.

Until Part 2
