When my mom called me on Saturday evening to tell me this band was playing at our new vet’s office here in Louisburg, Acoustic Pets, I jumped at the opportunity to go check it out! I stopped cooking supper and told Sam I’d be back, grabbed my camera, and practically flew out the door. There’s something super special about small town festivities like these. I’m sure small towns all over America have little festivals, community gatherings and the like just like my small town does, but there’s something even more special, I think, about a small town gathering in the South…in the summer. It’s hot. The food is delicious. People are sweaty. You can smell the heat and the sweet summer grass. Kids are crying and laughing and just hanging out. The locals are colorful and from all parts of the town and all walks of life. The music is generally from a local band like this one, and seriously, only in the South could you have a concert at a restored 1890’s purple house which now houses a pretty rockin’ vet’s office! People are friendly and talk to one another. They may dance in the street or sidewalk. Some of these pictures will be part of a special project I’m working on, but I couldn’t help but write a post about this awesome band and a summer’s eve in our small town. While I am not a huge country music fan (not really a country music fan at all), this band was “frickin” great!
I love the look on this father’s face…the look so many parents often have after their child has talked to them incessantly for an extended period of time. And the look on the little boy’s face is still as excited as it probably was when he awoke that morning.
I have so many more that I would have loved to share from this event, but these are my very favorites!
