So when I visited Katie in Cleveland, we went to the Rock Hall again. I think I could just camp out permanently at that place. There is always so much to see – and they do change the exhibits up so while some things were the same (and I tried to mostly not photograph the same things I did last time) there were new things to see.

My posts from last time:

So being surrounded by guitars and rock memorabilia – and music… awesome. One of the best parts of the Rock Hall is actually the little movies they show. We popped into the American Bandstand retrospective and ended up staying for the whole thing because we enjoyed it so much. We actually didn’t have time for the long movie they have that covers every band that’s been inducted, but there is so much great music in it, that I do love rewatching it.

I just genuinely enjoy this place and hope I’ll get to go back again.

So some pictures..

This is one of my fav guitars there. So pretty!

Mary Watson – this construction on this was impressive. It was all sequined but the pattern goes over the seams, so we were wondering if it was brilliant pattern matching or whether it was embroidered by hand post construction:

They had all these names of music festivals on the walls, and we found Abbey Road on the River, which was awesome, because it’s because of this festival that Katie and I became friends!
