Sarah: Canadians Among Us

A few weeks ago, my brother, Dave, performed with his band, Canadians Among Us in Bountiful.

They rocked.

Hey, stop making fun of my photography. Blurry is the new clear.

You know what was awesome about the performance? That would be the fact that they have an accordion player. And that accordion player is my brother.

Attending the concert were Mark, Jessie, Andrea, myself, and my younger brother, affectionately called Young Jeffrey.

Mark is known for his stoicism. And possibly for his habit of wearing sunglasses indoors? I assume he did so to shield himself from the brilliance that was the musical performance.

There was a veritable smorgaasborg of emotion.

Jeff found something hilarious...

While Andrea expressed... anger? pain? a jealous rage? Your guess is as good as mine. Andrea is like a book written in a dead language... So much to be learned, if only I could understand.

Meanwhile, Jessie and I admired our shoes (I'm at the bottom of the photo, she's on the right). Hers are from Aldo, mine are from Target. My shoes may be more casual, but I was still taller than her.

If you're wondering about the band's name, the best explanation I got from Dave was as follows: "Well, have you noticed that all of the really cool bands are from Canada? We're trying to be cool by association. Or something like that."
So there you go. The inaugural performance of CanAmUs, as the kids are calling them. It was fun. And when they perform again, you should come. I'll bring drinks.

Count me in for July 5!

Our next concert will actually be August 5...

Being a rock star is pretty cool, I guess. But like Emily Rossum, I'm not really in it for all the fame and fortune--I do it for the art.

It's pretty much true. I consider myself a big fan of Canada, and one the major reasons is the Canadian musicians that continue to delight me.

Awww. CanAmUs. That was fun and stuff.
