In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I decided to dedicate my Saturday night to one of my most beloved musicians. I arrived in Milwaukee just in time to watch the Badgers take on Ohio State in an epic basketball game. Now, I like getting my fitness on on the regular, but “sporty” is probably not the first word that comes to mind when people think of me. They probably think “superb taste in music”…naturally. Anyways, my Badgers were workin’ it and I was workin’ a Bloody Mary. Everyone was happy.
The real reason to be in Milwaukee, however, was to watch Robyn in concert that night. I saw her for the first time back in November at her sold-out show in Chicago and I couldn’t help but sign up for more when I caught wind of her gracing Wisconsin. I arrived at 5:30 p.m. to ensure a front row spot would be snagged, which means there was a lot of waiting to be done seeing as she didn’t actually hit the stage until 11 p.m. In the meantime, I befriended a group of feisty gentlemen and tried to keep spirits high. Robyn was nothing short of amazing when she finally did come on (especially since she had been bedridden and forced to cancel her show the day before) as was expected. Her energy, passion, voice, and sick dance moves took charge of the venue and I most definitely took charge of that front row.
Happy Valentine’s Day - love away!
