love & manners.

i went to love and manners last night.
boy oh boy...what a show.
it was a-m-a-z-i-n-g.
quite a different show than you're regalurrr ole concert.
a spotlight series of 10 opening acts.
mbf himself.
all together on stage.

who: michael bernard fitzgerald and 120 other talented performers
what: love and manners concert/the mbf love ep pre-release
where: jack singer concert hall
when: june 5th
why: why not?

highlights (and there were many)
1) the mc's = quirky, adorable, awesome (perfect mc's!)
2) noel johnson in the spotlight series
3) guitar tuning pt 1: mbf telling a joke
a piece of string walks into a bar...the bartender says 'we don't serve pieces of string here'
the piece of string walks out and thinks of only one solution
he walks into the closest back alley
he ties himself into a knot...then proceeds to fray one of his ends
he then walks back into the bar...the bartender says 'aren't you the piece of string i just sent away?'
the string now says 'im afrayed knot'
4) guitar tuning pt 2: mbf calls upon a young audience member to tell a joke (so cute)
why do cows have bells?
because their horns don't work...
5) mbf himself: so full of love and awkward energy...great stage presence and truly a gifted artist. love it.
6) his response to 'i love you michael!'
'well thanks thats very kind of you...i'm sure i could be coerced into loving you too'
7) a big shout out to my friend, choreographer, and dancer last night...jamie marshall!
8) the mad amounts of love in the jack singer last night.
9) the music. the dancing. the art. the energy. gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.

i cannot say enough about how impressed i was and how happy it made me.
