A fun. night in Detroit
The puns are endless, making me wonder if artists like Live and The Band would have chosen their names in a post-Google society. If they knew and utilized what we do now, technologically, would they choose something a little further outside the Merriam Webster lines? Or would they just add some subtle formatting and punctuation to their names like current worldwide sensations (and 21st-century answer to "Who's On First"), fun.?
I recently took my 15-year-old sister, Keri, to see fun. in Detroit. It was her first concert, and we both loved it. In fact, she came into the historic Fillmore Detroit knowing just the group's two biggest hits ("We are Young" and "Some Nights"), and left saying that fun. was now her favorite band. It was a thrill for me to experience her first "post concert high" with her, one that I know so well.
After we saw fun. in Detroit, the band (not The Band) went on to win Best New Artist and Song of the Year at the 2013 Grammy Awards. And when you search for "fun" on Google now, the first result is the artist. Yep, they beat Google; how fun (yeah, I totally went there).
