Tonight we are taking our son Ibanez to his first rock concert. This is a very special show for us. In January of 2006 my husband was diagnosed with Leukemia. The album Juturna was a gift to us that month. While Mike underwent months of intensive cancer treatments, we found solace in that beautiful album. Circa Survive had instantly become one of our favorite bands. We have a very emotional attachment to the music. It helped us get through some very difficult times. Our son was only 3 at the time, so this album and the others to follow became the sound track of our family.
Tonight Circa Survive is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of this album and is playing songs from it at The Warfield in San Francisco. All the years that we have gone to their shows, Ibanez was always too young to go with us. We thought this was a perfect show to bring him now that he is a teenager and the fact that the Warfield has balcony seats, (so we are safe from moshers!).
I drew this pic for my sweet boy. Can’t wait till tonight! Let’s dance our socks off!
