Five for Fighting with Great FriendsAugust 28th, 2010
I spent Wednesday night at a local bar watching Five for Fighting. Well let me rephrase, I spent most of Wednesday night at a local bar for the purpose of watching Five for Fighting, but spent most of it people watching. We ended up waiting over two hours for him to take the stage, and he didn’t play very long, but it was worth it.
I got to spend two hours with good friends, and watching the wide variety of people who show up for events like that. Since I don’t get out much, and have never really done the bar thing here, it was a good time.
I’ve listened to Five for Fighting’s (aka John Ondrasik, yes one guy, you learn new things all the time) music for years. I have to say though, I appreciate it more now that I’ve watched him perform live. He gives background stories for the songs he sings live, which is amazing. He seems like a really cool guy. It was fun to watch him sing a couple songs he’s well known for (Superman and One Hundred Years), and a few others I’m not as familiar with.
Did I mention it was free? Overall a great way to spend an evening, especially when your weeks are as stressful as mine have been. And if you don’t know who I’m talking about you should definitely give him a listen.
