Free Bird!!

Last night we took our kids (and Kailani and Dusty) to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert. We've been before but this time our seats were a mere ten rows from the front. It was Dusty's first introduction to TSO (she was worried she'd be bored by a quiet performance of classical music) and she is now a rabid fan.

Items of note from last night:

1. It's the first time I've gotten snow in my eye during an indoor concert.

2. It's the first time I've heard someone yell "Free Bird!" between performances of Christmas carols.

3. It's the first time a rendition of Beethoven's Fifth has made me want to throw up the fist of rock.

All in all, it was a fantastic night. =)


  1. Wish I could have went to the concert. Maybe I'm too young, but what's "free bird"?

  2. Paul I'm ashamed of you, you live in Tennessee and don't know what "free bird" is? Not to mention we cater to so many rednecks on a daily basis I'm suprised you've never heard this yelled out in our dining room (also, on a daily basis). I kid, I kid.

  3. Kai's right. Hie thyself off to google. It's a song. A classic that somehow has become a cultural phenomenon so that it is virutally impossible to go to a rock n roll show without someone (usually with the benefit of copious amounts of tongue-loosening alcohol) yelling out "Free Bird!"
