Phoenix at MSG - Inaugural concert!

Wednesday, October 20th 2010:

After the craziness of moving and trying to settle down, we had such a blast at our very first concert as NYC area residents. And I bought the tickets just one week earlier on ticketmaster, at face value no less :)

a quick bite to eat at Lenny's

we missed the Wavves :( but we caught the Dirty Projectors - I liked just a couple of their songs but bought a t-shirt anyways since I thought the design was pretty cool.

a huge sheet was released and floated above the pit area before the band came out
