ra ra riot at celebrate brooklyn
best last hurrah: ra ra riot closed out the last free concert at prospect park. it was my first time seeing them outdoors. saw them previous here and there. was a lil bittersweet because saki was not with me. she introed me to wes and gang. in her stead was denise, another saki convert and ol' high school bud. shar was dancing along especially to "ghost under rocks", "oh la" and "everest". the encore, however was sing along time as wes declared we are going to have some fun. he barreled into a cover of steve winwood's "valerie". they closed with my fav "dying is fine". great tunes, awesome setting, and good friends (mike, jen, sue, denise, marco and fadi). perfect brooklyn summer memory of 2011.
