As you may have guessed, this past Thursday I saw rabbit at a "super secret" event, and if you follow them on Facebook, you would know where that event was located (not so secret anymore now, is it?). So, if you are oh so desperate to find out where they played, take a looky at this page here.
So, now that you've taken your time to click on the link, log onto Facebook and look at their page to find out where the event was, you are probably wondering how the concert was.
Rabbit! started out with their single “Fall Into Love,” a great upbeat song that also happens to be the first Rabbit! song I ever heard. Unfortunately, I do not remember the rest of the setlist, so from here on out I am just going to have to tell you about the concert in no particular order, so I am just going to have to attempt to write about my favorite songs in chronological order. Wish me luck.
But, before I begin with the specifics, I would just like to address the concert in its whole. What amazed me most, was how well Rabbit! could play live. I never expected such a small indie band out of Mount Dora, Florida to play like they did. I mean, they performed like they had been touring for their whole lives. Ashton’s voice sounded exactly the same, as did Devin’s, Emma’s and Yara’s. They were all great musicians, and you could really feel a great vibe coming off of them throughout the whole concert. You also could tell just how ecstatic they were to be where we were (keepin’ it super secret), and that added to the great feel. So that was just one of many great aspects of the concert. So now, into the specifics!
One song from the concert that I really enjoyed was “Ladybug,” one of Rabbit!’s slower, sweeter songs. The reason enjoyed it, besides Emma’s great vocals and just the song itself, was the great (and quite amusing) use of props, including a dinosaur saying “Rawr,” and a fluffy looking sheep (very fluffy). It just added another really fun aspect to the already fantastic, or should I say Rabbitastic, concert (don’t you just love making words up on the spot? because I do). But, from the performance of this song, I also learned something, and what I learned, was that Rabbit! actually wrote this song for a children’s album for charity, which I thought also added a lot to just how cute the song was.
Another great song that they performed, is their magnificent cover of “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas, which in my opinion is much better than the original, and if you have not seen their video for it, then you must watch it. It really is not an option, because if you do not watch it, you are depriving yourself. Watch it here, now. So now that you have seen the snuggie dance, and the Emma cam and whatnot, you have now been properly educated, and understand how great the performance of this song must have been, so I don’t think I need to say much more than, the vocals were great, I loved the instrumental, and I love that song like a fat boy loves cake.
The final song I’m going to write about, is my favorite song by Rabbit!, and Rabbit! used some word to describe what this song was to the band, but now I am not remembering what that word was. I will get back to you on that. But nonetheless, whatever word they used meant that it was their most epic song, which it is. My grandma said it reminded her of ‘The Beatles mixed with Queen,” and come on, does it get any better than that? No. It doesn’t. And once again, the vocals were great, the instrumental was great, and the performance was great. So basically, Rabbit! is just a fantabulous band.
It truly was a great concert. :)
