thursday afternoon in louisville + night with old crow medicine show

As I mentioned in my Friday Favorites post we took a half day yesterday and ventured in to Louisville for the afternoon. The summer heat is getting to me. I wanted to wear something cute to the show we were attending last night, but ended up going with shorts, a tee shirt, and flip flops. It got so warm in the venue I ended up being pretty happy about it by the end of the night though!


We decided to eat lunch at Old Chicago, somewhere I have only been once before and with Jason. Personal deep dish pizzas? Love it! We also tried their spicy fried pickles. Yum!


We stopped by the new Urban Outfitters, where I picked up an awesome scarf for this fall! It has an orange and beige geometric print and I'm sure you'll see it here on the blog at some point.


This awesome mural is painted near Urban Outfitters in The Highlands. This is easily our favorite area in the city! So many unique and independently own shops, bars, and restaurants.


And finally, the reason for our entire trip to Louisville: OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW! I wasn't allowed to take my camera in to the show, which really irritated me. It was "too professional" just because it was a DSLR and the lens detached. Ugh, so unfair. I just wanted some pictures that didn't look like this one where all of the guys are whited out. They were absolutely incredible! After seeing them live - their recorded albums don't even do them justice, even though they are amazing.

I can't state enough how absolutely wonderful and talented this group is. If you get the chance to experience them, please take it! My favorite songs from last night's performance were some of those from old albums (I haven't really listened to their brand new one yet.) "Methampehtamine" was haunting. "Wagon Wheel" had everyone in the venue on their feet singing along, of course. "Cocaine Habit" and "Alabama High Test" outstanding! And then they blended "I Hear Them All" with "This Land Is Your Land" which, no offense Woody Guthrie, I think they need to record a version of  this and use that in preschool and kindergarten classes! I think some weird part of my life was completed in hearing that medley that I didn't even know had a gap, true story. This may have been my first time seeing them, but I really hope it isn't my last!
