While Lawrence may best be known for its role in the Civil War, for me it will always be the place I spent my formative college years at the University of Kansas (KU). I have so many wonderful memories of this place, especially of Mass. street, the main street of town that harbors independent shops and bars in the old buildings from the 1800s. There's just so much character and history. I've tried to persuade Wade more than once to move here. Maybe one day I'll convince him.
After reliving old memories, it was time to head over to the concert. We had seen Griffin House play a few years before when he opened for the The Cranberries, and I immediately loved him. He's got a folksy, soulful sound and all he needs is a guitar.
So HAGS everybody!
