Every 3rd Thursday, The Edge 103.9 has a free concert. This last Thursday my sisters and I decided to have a much needed girls night out and go to it. Joshua Radin was playing...who is just the greatest! Josh and I have been through some tough times together. Whenever I'm studying and stressing out because my brain won't hold anymore information, I put on my Joshua Radin CD and let his voice just make everything better. We started the night off sharing a BIG salad and pizza crusts at Nello's. We had to go to the Nello's in Tempe because of "an incident" that happened at the Nello's in Chandler. Let's just say that we can't go to the Chandler Nello's anymore.
When we got to the place in Scottsdale where the concert was being held, we were surprised how few people were there. We were even 45 minutes late and it didn't seem like anyone was there. So we decided to go into Dos Gringos (which is a bar/club) to use the restroom. I must say I was a little flattered that we got carded! Maybe they just card everyone because I'm pretty sure we look "of age". As we were walking to the back looking for the restrooms...lo and behold ...guess who is just sitting there at a table with a couple of other people. None other than Joshua Radin himself! I saw him but didn't make the connection of who it was until we went into the bathroom and Tia said "Did you see Joshua Radin sitting right there!?" I wasn't expecting him to be just out in the general population so it didn't register that it was him just sitting there! We quickly got out our cameras and went back out to ask him for a picture but just that fast he was GONE! We looked everywhere thinking he just stepped outside or something but to no avail. Talk about a missed opportunity! We went outside to the stage and still there were not that many people around so we walked right up and got in the front row. By the time the concert actually started around 9:00 PM there were TONS of people there and we were right in the front row center! It was perfect!
A good time was had by all. A big thanks to my home-girls for making it all possible!
