Mumford and Sons (CMAC)


Finally I’m able to actually see a concert this year.  I missed Graffiti6 (twice) and Blind Pilot, but was smuggled into the Mumford & Sons show in Canandaigua, New York.  There were two opening acts Aaron Eckhart and Dawes. They were both enjoyable enough, however it was difficult to get too excited for them when you’re waiting for Mumford & Sons.

Lawn seats suck.  There is no other way around it.  That little screen above the precious indoor seats isn’t much consolation.

Though I make a lot of lawn seats jokes  I wouldn’t have missed this concert for anything.  Mumford & Sons sounded great playing many songs from the upcoming album, Babel, along with plenty of the other songs we know so well.  There wasn’t a bad song all night, but “Dust Bowl Dance,” “Lover of the Light”, “I Will Wait,” “Winter Winds” and “The Cave” were all highlights.  Whoever told the band how to pronounce “Canandaigua” should be fired.
