heard them stirring

“I LOVE YOU!” A pause in the music, and a surprisingly masculine voice from somewhere in the masses: “I want to have your babies!”

Now, an actual woman: “Me tooooo!”

“Me threeeeeee!” It’s like a call and response hymnal worship out here tonight.

And then, the drummer, looking down at the microphone: “Maybe…maybe you’re really just in love with a deeply complicated web of potential misconceptions.”

I can’t think of a better way to subdue an entire amphitheater of slightly tipsy idolators into several moments of awkward silence than by making them briefly consider the motivation behind their swollen affections, so freely offered up into the chilly September air. God, Fleet Foxes. With deadpan that good, how can I help but love you? Oh and of course, the music. For those harmonies, I’ll misconceive you any day.


Also, good Lord I want a twelve string guitar.
