An Evening at Wolf Trap

Weena and I went to see Earth, Wind & Fire last night at Wolf Trap's Filene Center. We were inside the pavillion and loved every minute of it. It was a great concert as this legendary band played all their hit songs. We were treated to classics like Shining Star, Sing A Song, Serpentine Fire, Fantasy, Got To Get You Into My Life, September (Weena's favorite), Boogie Wonderland, After The Love Has Gone and a bunch more during the hour and a half show. Among the encores was my favorite, That's The Way Of The World.

The evening was perfect, not too hot and no humidity and a beautiful view of the moon as we left. I can't say enough about how easy it was to get there. We live about ten miles from Wolf Trap so it was a quick trip up Route 7. We left our house after saying good bye to Benjamin and Weena's Mom at 7:10 and were parked at 7:30. The walk was brief and we were in our seats after getting some water at 7:45. Getting out was easy too, we left at 9:45 and got home at exactly 10:00. Perfect.

We both agreed we need to visit this venue more often and we noticed they had children's performances too for Benjamin's enjoyment. Looking at the schedule I see Crosby, Stills and Nash is there on July 28th but it is sold out. I may check Craigslist for a ticket or drive out there and look for someone with an extra. Chris Issak is also appearing August 21st and that's tempting as well.

Here is more information on Wolf Trap here.

Glad you had a good time. We love wolftrap, and we've got tickets for later this summer for the first time in a looong time -- August 22nd, Eddie from Ohio opening for Great Big Sea, should be loads of fun.

Cool Aaron, have a great time. I was able to get a ticket to CSB via Craigslist for face value today. Looking forward to this show.
