One week later, and a few (try 50) dollars shorter, I'm just now getting around to posting these pictures online. Rhonda, Mary Anna, and myself headed to the reknown Ryman Auditorium to see the John Mayer Trio. Okay- well riddle me this Batman, but every tri I've ever heard of has 3 people. Now I'm willing to stretch the imagination and allow for this motley crew to consist of John Mayer plus 3 of his most talented blues-playing friends, making it an ensemble of 4, but when did 5 people onstage constitute a trio? Why not call the tour, John Mayer and Friends, or the John Mayer Quintet? These are things to which I guess we'll never know the answers!
The show was good, but after seeing Coldplay a few weeks before, nothing compares (to you). It would be like comparing watching the UT-LSU game in overtime or seeing John Mayer perform a bunch of amazing, albeit unknown blues songs. ("Something's Missing"- oh yes, all the John Mayer songs!!) Which would you rather partake in? Rhonda and I had our priorities straight and therefore had my imaginary boyfriend text messaging us updates on the game that we would have, retrospectively of course, rather have been watching.
UT won, John Mayer didn't propose to me, but it was a fun Monday evening out with the girls. Notice our one fun That Aint Right Moment- our young friend's I Heart Freshman Girls T-shirt. Now that's just funny. Also thanks to Mary Anna who sacrificed much of the concert to view the show through the lens of her digital camera to capture these photos and many more.
