Waterfront Wednesday

Waterfront Wednesday is an awesome monthly (free) event that is put on by 91.9 WFPK. The line-ups this year hadn't been too appealing until we started to hear them plug this show.

Sonos - An acapella group that covers songs from Radiohead, etc.

Joshua James - American rock/folk whose vocals sounded reminiscent of Ray LaMontagne.

Carney - Melt your face off AWESOMENESS.

We actually didn't see any of the first act but were able to stay for both J.J.'s and Carney's sets. Joshua James was pretty good. His band could definitely benefit from a drummer. Carney on the other hand... I don't know if it's just that I've been concert-deprived or what but they were really incredible. They played their song Amelie about half way through their set and it was a fun break from the Queen inspired vocals shrills of lead singer. They finished the set with an extended version of their song Testify and it rrrocked!

Reeve Carney (second from left) landed the role of Peter Parker in the Spiderman musical that will hit Broadway this fall. Spiderman as a musical? Yeah. That's what we thought too. It should be interesting to say the least.

We stopped by the incredibly janky Family Dollar in Jeffersonville on our way to the show because I forgot to bring sunscreen from home. I was a little uncomfortable with the greasy stuff smeared all over my face but it did the trick. There were a bunch of people standing near us that helped block the sun as well (including the frontiers woman behind me). Oh yeah! Those sunglasses of mine are legit 1980's vintage.

Fresh squeezed lemonade! It was the icing on the cake to an awesome night on the Harbor Lawn in Waterfront Park.
