Last night we saw one of our favorite singers. We’ve loved the British singer/songwriter, Adele since before going to Italy last April in ’08 and fell in love with her even more while over there. Her song “Chasing Pavement” was aired constantly on Italia MTV and when I hear it it brings me right back to the tiny/cute apartment we rented on Via Chiara in Florence! It also reminds me of the few days right before we got married…and the morning of. It’s a special song to us.

We jumped at the chance when we saw she was coming to Austin about 2-3 weeks ago!

Last night worked out so beyond perfectly! We left work an hour early, dropped Saci off at my parent’s house, got an awesome parking spot right outside the venue (La Zona Rosa), and went to one of our favorite Thai restaurants well before the show started.

I was a little bummed, because after dinner we waltzed around downtown Austin before returning to the venue. When we got there we heard that Adele had been chatting up the people in line, ugh jealousy! Oh well, what ya gonna do?

Gary Clark opened for Adele. He’s someone I’d never heard of before, but after doing some light research learned that he was a gifted local guitarist. I loved that his sound check was non-existent and he casually strolled on the stage, picked up his guitar, and just started singing. His style/voice was very reminiscent to Amos Lee. Very impressed and a great start to the evening!

Adele came out next and absolutely blew us away. She was full of energy and cute quirkiness. I wasn’t expecting such a successful artist to be so humble. Her dialogue with her audience was meaningful and never cut short. She even stated that she purposefully did this show a day before SXSW so tickets could remain affordable and so her true fans could come see her rather than industry peeps. Thanks Adele, much appreciated!

And HER VOCALS. dang. This girl’s range at the age of 20 is something all artists would kill for. She hits notes I didn’t even knew existed without flinching! Take a listen to “Daydreamer” that Alex recorded from the show…it’s short and sweet. Please listen and support this wonderful artista!!!

I’m glad we got there early, we were so close being in the second row and were able to really connect with the artist! We’ll be seeing her again!

    I’m jealous you were able to see her in such a great venue.

    I moved to Rome in April of 08 so Chasing Pavement will always mean something to me as well.
