Parrotheads = experience, not just a concert

I’m not really a Jimmy Buffet fan…but who doesn’t like a couple of his songs, at least? Plus, its only in the US that a beach bum could end up being a multimillionaire, right?? And Mr. Buffet deserves a tip of the cap for making that happen.
Well, Mr. Lush and I, along with a couple of friends, went to the Jimmy Buffet concert last night. Recap- completely sold out show, both in seats and lawn. Took us at least 1 ½ hours to get there because of the traffic-and it would normally be a 15 minute drive. Music – fine. Overall experience-weird. Imagine the percentage of people who go to sporting event and wear that team’s attire. Now that same percentage of people were wearing some combination, if not all of the following: Hawaiian shirt, grass skirt, and parrots on their hat or even AS their hat. Really. The entire crowd wore that kind of stuff. (us included-but just the Hawaiian shirts) A sold out crowd of middle aged people wearing grass skirts and parrots on their heads made the night an experience, not just a concert. I’d recommend it to anyone, though, just once. It wasn’t on The List, but I think I’ll add so I can cross it off. :)

Sounds...memorable. Did you or Mr. Lush wear a parrot? If so did someone get pictures?

Did you see the guy that opened? Jake Shimabukuro? We're going to see him in Soulard tonight.

Neither Mr. Lush nor I wore parrots-just hawaiian shirts. Sorry-no pics.

We didn't see the guy that opened-sadly it took us SO LONG to get in that we didn't find a place to sit until about 8:30.
