I Hope He Doesn't Lick Her Like a Lollipop

Saturday I went to see Framing Hanley for the first time. They come to Little Rock pretty often. I've wanted to see them for years, but somehow each time other plans came up that made it impossible for me to make it to the show.

There was only one other band that went on before Framing Hanley.  I think they were locals.  The band didn't have a singer...just instruments.  I do not like music without words; I need lyrics.

I didn't even catch their name...but whatever it is, I know it involved the word elephant.

By this point you have probably figured out that I didn't like them.  Their set seemed to last forever and I was bored out of my mind.   I know that is harsh; but it's the truth.  I can't lie.  I never have been able to.


It was finally time for Framing Hanley. They are really good live.  I am most definitely going to be at their shows when they come to Arkansas from now on.  I loved it!

Plus...let's be honest Nixon (lead singer) is really pretty to look at and he is super sweet as well.

 I don't own any of their albums...yet.  Although I have been listening to them on Spotify and Pandora for years.  Believe me though I will be buying all of them as soon as I possibly can.


For Christmas I wanted a new dSLR camera, (Canon Rebel SL1) I was able to get it a little early.  I ended up taking it with me to shoot the show.  I'm glad I did, because it helped me realize that the dSLR that I already have was a much better fit for me. (Canon Rebel T1i)

Nixon:





This is one of my favorite shots that I took that night.  There are a lot more, to see them click here. Give my page a 'Like" while you are over there if you want to keep up with my photography.

Before Framing Hanley performed one of their songs Nixon said; 'This one's about my grandma...  (he pauses while everyone says awe) ...she's a bitch" everyone had a laugh at that.  Turns out the song "about his grandma" was their remake of Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" I sure hope he doesn't lick his grandma. Haha!

In case you, for some strange reason have never heard the Framing Hanley version of "Lollipop"  here you go.

If I don't write before then...Merry Christmas! I hope you have a great one.
