On a mild, winter Wednesday night, Kat and I found ourselves in one of the longest line-ups we've ever been in for a concert. It started at the Vogue Theatre on Granville St., and wrapped all the way down Smithe and around the corner half way down the block on Seymour. Which all translates to "a very long line-up". It didn't bother us at all even though it was general seating, knowing that we'd enjoy it the same no matter where we sat. Infront of us in line were a couple of girls in their 20's. Frequent concert go-ers by the sounds of their conversation. Behind us in the line-up were three young girls with their parents. Probably around seven or eight years old. The three of them held hands in a circle, and jumped up and down with excitement, waiting to get in. The next in line behind them was a couple probably in their 50's. A concert for all ages.
If you don't know Pentatonix, they are a group of five a cappella vocalists who won the third season of the show, "Sing Off" back in 2011. Check them out on YouTube if you haven't heard of them already. (check out their "Evolution of Music" video). The most amazing, aside from how well they harmonize their voices together, is especially Avi Kaplan's deep, vocal range. His low registers gave us shivers!
The concert was more than what we expected. It was a ton of fun for a weekday night.
