matt wertz

{oh, my birthday was just fab}
i got to spend the evening with some lovely ladies and they spoiled me for sure!  we started the evening with dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, cabo fish taco in NoDa.  then it was time for the main event of the evening!  we headed over to the fillmore in charlotte to hear the insanely talented matt wertz.  he opened for five for fighting & the only thing i'm bummed about was that he wasn't the headliner... but he was fabulous nonetheless!

much to my surprise, miss angelina ballerina, had pulled a few strings & got us 3 VIP tickets right on the side of the stage!  ... and just when i thought things couldn't get any better, a little bird somehow told mr. wertz that it was my birthday & he was kind enough to wish me a happy birthday from the stage.  i might have squealed like a 12 year old girl!  woops!

i honestly hadn't listened to much of  five for fighting before other than their radio hits, but they were great live.  a very talented group of musicians! it's always a great surprise to see bands who are extremely talented live. 
if you haven't downloaded matt wertz's new EP, "while we're becoming," go do it TODAY!   matt's set included some of his new stuff mixed with a little "carolina," "sweetness in starlight," "everything's right,"a new song that's not been recorded yet, and then closed with an acoustic version of the new song "sing my lonesome away" with the whole band.  loved it...  and mr. wertz isn't too shabby to look at either ;)  

thank you e & angelina ballerina for such a wonderful birthday.  i love you both to pieces!!
