Stand still, look pretty ... take the picture!

Well, not only did Michelle Branch and fellow Wrecker Jessica Harp put on a great show at the Dutchess County Fair in Rhinebeck last night, she was also gracious enough to snap a pic with me after the concert...

I know, I know: I looked surprised I'm getting my picture taken! Oh, and nice red-eye, right?! I just don't photograph well. I think Michelle does this more than me.

The title of this entry is an obvious play on words, taken from The Wreckers' "Stand Still, Look Pretty" CD.

Michelle was also nice enough to take a pic with my GF, but if you remember the Liev Schreiber meeting, she's a lil' shy.

After singing "Leave the Pieces" and then an encore, Jessica left for her tour bus (they'd said earlier they have a 20-hour drive to Kansas City ahead of them), but Michelle signed autographs for fans for about 15 minutes.

Still, Michelle was gracious enough to stop for a minute and really make our day 'cause the concert was honestly the only reason we even went to the fair.

Oh! Making the night even more fun for my fav U2 fan, Michelle sang "Pride (In the Name of Love)" as a solo, saying she'd done the song in sound checks recently, but this was the first time she'd done it for an audience.

And if that wasn't enough fun, I won a stuffed Stewie Griffin at the fair! (I'm so proud.) Thank you, Whack-A-Mole!

No, really ... I'm sure that's an officially licensed "Family Guy" product. No, seriously ... it's gotta be, right?

The sign of a great band is if anyone can sing your songs and it still sounds good. U2 rocks!! Michelle and company weren't bad either.

Hey BRO. Why does The GF have a big blot over her face?

Thanks for the comment, Pete! Hope your Daddy Diary blog (www.runhead246.blogspot.com) is doing well! If you'd read either this entry (on which you commented) or clicked the link contained within this entry, you'd have seen the running joke about the blue dot. Thanks, and have a great day!
