It's cold here in Boston. The kind of cold where you have to wear two pairs of socks under your slippers, but your toes are still tingling. The kind of cold where you tell yourself you're just gonna take a quick walk to the coffee shop, but the minute you open your door you frantically search for your car keys because you're certain just the act of walking to your car will kill you. January in Boston is not for the weak, which is why we personally really suck at winter. So it comes as no surprise that at this point in our misery we start to get a little pang of jealously. We are envious of those who live somewhere where a 45 degree day is reason enough to throw some logs on the fire. We are envious of those who have never known the joy of owning snow shovels and roof rakes. But mostly, we are envious of all of those lucky people who are heading to tropical lands on their Cayamo cruise. Not only are these people gonna be warm in January, but they are getting to see our beloved The Lone Bellow as part of their vacation! OK, so the truth is, we're not really "cruise" people. Under normal circumstances, neither of us would plan a cruise for a vacation. Still, we see the amazing line up, we think of the sunshine, and we see that there are more opportunities to see The Lone Bellow. Suddenly that part of our brains that makes us do really stupid things just to see the band perform starts to think, "Well, maybe we could become cruise people?" Alas, here we are, still in Boston, trying to convince ourselves that we're not really missing out on anything. We'll just sit under our pile of quilts, sipping our hot tea, while watching this video from last year's cruise. It's as good as being there. Right?
Who We Are
We are Abra and Bobbie, two friends living in Boston who go to a lot of concerts together. We saw The Lone Bellow, having never heard of them, and could not believe our good fortune in discovering such talent. We now try to go by the "Four-Hour-Rule", meaning if we can get to a show within four hours, we will be there, hopefully right up front.
