It’s been a Sandra-full weekend! We did lots of running around town, shopping and making her watch baseball – all culminated with a visit to the Fillmore for the Maroon 5 show last night.
The Hives opened the show – and let me tell you, those boys from Sweden are NUTS. Totally hilarious, self-deprecating and FUN. They were rocking out like nobody’s business and that lead singer kid has definitely been studying Mick Jagger for his moves.
See for yourself:
Then Maroon 5 came out. And I must admit, I was a bit apprehensive after their nauseating performance on American Idol last season, and some crappy videos on YouTube that I have seen since then where Adam Levine’s voice sounds like – well – vomit left over from the AI performance.
But they delivered! And surprised me by playing really well too. I just always think of them as a fun pop band, but they can actually play their instruments! And Adam’s voice sounded great. And he was hot as hell. I can’t figure out if he is gay, bi or straight – or what – but don’t really care because gay, bi or straight men can be all hot, too. And. he. was. hot.
They played all the hits, sucked wind like most bands do when they come to Denver, and we three girls got fairly close to the front and danced our bootays off.
And they even played my most favorite Maroon 5 song – Sunday Morning. A perfect pop song, in my opinion.
Yes, a great way to end a weekend with good friends.
