Thursday night, the tenants moved out of my apartment and we were in possession of it again. Which was perfect because we needed a place in the city to stay overnight since we were going to the MUSE concert.
MUSE was amazing, let me just say that off the bat. One of the best live shows I HAVE EVER SEEN! Seriously...emotional and awesome.
I've been listening to them since 2004 and they've always been one of my favourite bands, sadly I missed them the last time they were in Vancouver in 2005. Would have been awesome considering tickets were $12 and they were playing at the Commodore Ballroom.
Now Muse sells out the Pacific Coliseum (some of you might know the venue as the skating rink for the Vancouver Olympics 2010 Short Track and Figure Skating Events).
Even though I'm not exactly gung-ho about their new album (a bit too "pop" for me and the "1984" stuff is a little old) but I still love all their older, LOUDER HARDER tracks and with that they did not disappoint!
Matt Bellamy's fashion sense is getting better too? Remember WAY last year when I did my "Inspired by Muse" fashion post HERE? Well I wasn't far off. At this concert, Bellamy rocked tight magenta cigarette pants, a Balmain jacket (it had to be) and sparkly shoes. Funniest sight? How he would SKIP around stage with guitar in hand, playing the dirtiest, loudest guitar riffs.
Just watch this - it's a highlight: They unleashed massive EYEBALLS on the audience during the end of Plug-In Baby.
They are SUCH Rockstars!
For the concert I wore my Faith No More New Zealand/Australian Tour Shirt. Next time I wear the thing, it'll be at the actual Faith No More concert. Um, which is in one week. EEK!
Also, kinda excited to see Muse yet AGAIN in Coachella, as Faith No More's encore. How wicked fricking rad is that?
I paired it with my 80%20% Wren Boots which are awesome. I actually MOVED in these boots. That doesn't sound like much but when you have special achy feet like I have, you do NOT spend your whole day in 3 inch heels moving boxes for hours on end. I didn't plan on wearing 3 inch heels though, but these boots have a hidden 3-inch wedge which I only measure AFTER the move when I wondered why my feet were burning. Still, these boots are seriously comfortable and seriously my new favourite things.
So yes, Friday was spent packing up all of our stuff and moving it back into my apartment. Redundant yes, but necessary.
Unfortunately, because we were busy moving, we missed my friend Poonam get married to her long-time hunk Behn. It was a Sikh ceremony, which I really wanted to go to. However, we were lucky enough to catch the reception which took place on Saturday.
It was fabulous to catch up with the college girls again (though it always seems to be at Weddings lol) and I'm proud to say that things did not get messy like they usually do.
And Poonam looked absolutely STUNNING in her Sari. I loved that it was a white/silver colour too. My only regret on Saturday was not renting a sari for myself. I would have loved to rock a yellow one!
