Despite the fact that my blog is named after their biggest hit, and I had a calendar, and several life sized posters of them adorning the walls of my bedroom in high school, I really haven't thought much about Hanson since 1999. I saw them once on MTV cribs. And I do have several of their songs on my running playlist--mostly because it takes my brain to a comfortable "I have no cares in the world" place that my brain rarely gets to go to.
Then my friend Emily, one of the few people in the world, like myself, who will openly admit to liking Hanson, told me about the upcoming Hanson tour coming to Salt Lake City. Serious? I mean, I knew they were still together because they're brothers and all. But I didn't know they were still doing the music recording thing and the singing in front of large crowds of screaming girls thing.
So, now I'm thinking that I need to go to this concert--which is a big idea for me since the concerts I've attended can be counted on one hand, and the concerts I've actually paid to attend can be counted on one finger. Yeah, I'm not generally the concert type.
But now maybe I will be. What's Mmmboppin' without Hanson? I guess I owe them.
