but wait, there's more

another kevin devine related post.

the last time i saw him live was in the bar of the driskill hotel in austin. the driskill was built in 1886 and is the epitome of cattle and oil men luxury. it's lit up like a honey colored cake at night, windows and doors all open, and i can never resist walking in and looking up at the stained glass on the ceiling, or grabbing a pastry from the bakery. one of my favorite buildings in my most favorite city.

so to see one of my favorite singers there was really something special.

i remember every detail of that night for some reason. the texas heat, the dust on my black flats. sitting on red velvet chairs with mmm in an alcove in the driskill, waiting for KD to take the stage. thinking how lucky, how very very lucky.
