Pink is my favorite crayon

The Pink concert was everything I hoped it would be, and more. Costumes! Trapezes! Potshots at Michael Vick! Covers of Queen, Led Zeppelin, Gnarls Barkley, and the Divinyls! Not to mention that she has an amazing voice. Seriously, I get chills (and tears in my eyes) listening to some of her slower songs. We were up in the rafters of the Staples Center--the second to last row--but I didn't care. Pink is totally my new best friend and you should all go see her perform and follow her on Twitter.

The picture on the left is her entrance--she came flying up through a trap door in the stage. The picture on the right is one of my favorites of the whole night. Click the pictures to see them bigger.

The stage. And I love it that she plays guitar.

I alternated between taking videos and pictures. Here's the most embarrassing one--you can hear me belting my little heart out and apologizing for it, knowing that I was going to post the video online for the world to see.

There are more videos here (without me singing--I managed to keep quiet for the rest).

After the show we headed across the street to the Emmy Awards red carpet at the Nokia Theatre and to fetch Jason a midnight steak dinner at Rock'n Fish, which had all of Pink's albums on shuffle in the background and a delightfully strong rum drink called Navy Grog.

Only in California, you guys. I could get used to this.

PS - Bonus points to whoever can guess the artist and song name for the lyrics in my title.

I love CA and intend to live there someday soon.

Pink has an amazing voice. I hear her new CD is very good (or so says Bev). But enough with the Michael Vick stuff, Pink. Yes, he's a tool, but he's paid the price for his mistakes and it's time to let him off the hook.

Bev said...

Yes, her new album is very good. I salute her entire catalog.

Yay for good shows! Very few things in life are as good as a fantastic live show. (Nice Emmy pose there ;) )

Also- And now I have Aerosmith in my head. Steven Tyler is a dirty old man. I can't listen to "Pink" without feeling icky. :P
