As you saw in my last post, the Bluebird Theater was packed so I only had a few vantage points for filming/photographing the Oh Hellos show. I didn’t get everything, but here are a few more video links featuring often partial songs, less than desirable positioning, and progressively bad camera-holding technique. Consider them a tasty sampling of the full concert, and, if necessary, feel free to close your eyes and just listen.

Immediately after the show, the band came down into the crowd to meet the people who’d been hollering and clapping for them. Maggie was smothered with hugs and kisses …
… while Tyler quietly and calmly answered lots of questions.
The rest of the band members danced and signed autographs and met new friends …
… and one was surprised by two favorite ladies who flew in just in time for the show.
Joy and adrenaline and exhaustion and knitted-togetherness were palpable and visible on all faces. Mine too, but I wisely stayed behind the camera because mascara had run all down my face for some reason. Probably because every detail of the entire trip to Denver had led up to this:
I’ve always loved my two kids. Now I have more of them to love. Even the silly ones.
Especially the silly ones.
My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God.
Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God.
