I have an obsession with anything related to music: radio, iPod, dancing, “American Idol” (whoot whoot), Pandora (if you don’t know what that is…you should find out cause it rocks), musicals, operas, etc. So back in November, I was just itching to see a concert as I hadn’t been to one in quite some time. So I Googled for concerts in Des Moines hoping that anything would pique my interest. Not only did I find a concert that did but he is one of my MOST favorite artists ever….Brett Dennen.
Most of you probably don’t know who he is since he is a small artist, but you should go to Youtube right now and check out “ain’t no reason” or “she’s mine.” He has a pretty strange voice so you either love him or hate him…and lucky for me I LOVE HIM. So I bought tickets, went with friends and had a blast. It was such a good time and he was so good in concert.
Maybe even the best part of the night was finding a new band that I LOVE. I had no clue going into the concert who the opening band was and expected to just listen to some mediocre music. But instead, I was blown away by them and fell in love with the singer, Grace’s voice….awesome. They are Grace Potter and the Nocturnals (check them out too). So all in all I had a great night. YEAH to Des Moines for filling my music cravings.
