Kongos at Celebrate Fairfax

Every few thousand years… we post on our blog.* 🙂

Putting the apartment back together and replacing and rebuilding everything after the flood has been a very long and time consuming process, but we are finally back to normal again! It feels great to have everything settled down a little bit. My sister Natalie is staying with us this summer for an internship, and it’s been lots of fun having her out here. We’re trying to take advantage of as many fun things to do out here as possible.

Mike and I saw the band Kongos in February – I got him tickets as part of his Christmas present where we got to meet them and take a picture with them after the show, and they’re one of our favorites. So when I saw on Friday morning that they were going to play at a festival called Celebrate Fairfax (similar to Parker Days, for anyone from Parker), we decided to be spontaneous and go https://buycbdproducts.com them that evening.

Just like in February, they were really good! They’re four brothers who grew up in South Africa and now live in Phoenix. They’ve studied music and come from a musical family, so they draw from a lot of different styles and are really talented. They’re a great band to see live. (Excuse the poor audio quality below – we were standing directly in front of the speakers and are probably going to regret the state of our hearing when we’re 80.)

They also did a really cool cover of The Beatles mashed up with Dr. Dre, but I recorded it accidentally in Time Lapse mode on my phone and was very sad when I discovered this at home. So, here it is on SoundCloud instead because it’s too cool not to share:

We decided to stand right up front with all the high schoolers and took lots of ridiculous selfies to blend in.

Afterwards, since it also happened to be National Doughnut Day, we drove to the 24-hour Krispy Kreme in Alexandria and got free doughnuts. Overall, it was one of the best nights out we’ve had in a long time!

    It’s great that you are having such a fun summer with Natalie and are getting to do great things together. Glad to hear the apartment is back in working order after the flood! Hugs to you all and keep us posted! 🙂

    I didn’t know Natalie was interning out there this summer. With whom is she interning? How nice for her to have a place to stay!

    I’d never heard of the Kongos. I like them, too—especially the Beatles song! (I can’t drag myself out of the old days; I still like anything that has anything to do with the Beatles! Ha!)

    Glad you’ve made good progress on your apartment. What a mess to have to deal with!

    Love you all! Take care!

    Love the song! I’m a fan of the Kongos too but haven’t listened to their music recently. I’ll have to give their latest stuff a listen!

    I completely missed this – what a fun night (I mean donuts of course). 🙂
    Love the Kongos’ reference – thanks for the hint.
