Fast forward fifteen years and receiving word that a small group of Icelandic artists were coming to Seattle to perform for FREE alongside Seattle artists. What could be more satisfying than a free concert consisting of people you are excited to see? I failed to do much research on who exactly would be performing, but given my limited knowledge of Icelandic bands on the cds we picked up while in Iceland I was excited by the possibilities.
I was more than ecstatic to see my favorite Icelandic artist, Lay Low take the stage alongside Jason Dodson of The Maldives. She was shy, sweet and between her broken English, little carpet bag suitcase and Dr. Scholl shoes I found her charm to be off the charts.
Although we will never be total hipsters, I can appreciate a new type of concerts which consist of small venues, good views and maybe I am more of a concert goer than I first thought.
