AM~Erica Experiences the Music Project

So anyway...

We have been having quite the day, so far. Can you tell? And loving every minute of it so far!

But we are actually going to move into checking out what the whole museum actually's about the music!

Welcome to the EMP Museum (Experience Music Project). This is a place where you can see & hear music that began in Seattle.


Jimi Hendrix:

We also got to go thru a whole exhibit based on AC/DC! Check out some of Angus Young's costumery on display:

With hubby & I being prodigies of the 80's, seeing Eddie Van Halen's iconic guitar was so exciting!!

We also took a moment to get a cheesy photo opp of pretending we were on the AC/DC stage! And we rocked it:

Hubby hitting his best hot guitarist pose

Lil Guy rocks it out

Teen Boy has appropriately hit a grunge pose without realizing it...
As close to the Nirvana scene as this post will get.
(bad Gen X'r parents)

Teen Girl bustin' out her own tunes

I, of course, had to hit my ultimate rocker pose!

Plus we formed a family rock group & did a rock group experience thing. There's a video of our group, Leave Me Out of It (it's a phrase that Teen Girl gave while trying to get out of doing this activity...Bwah-hahahaha!), as we "performed" Joan Jett's "I Love Rock & Roll". Plus there's a poster of us wandering around...but it mysteriously disappeared. Which is fine, y'all. But it was still fun!

There was also a place in there where you could test out all kinds of percussion sounds & do some recording studio type stuff!

Teen Girl testing out her song skills. That was so much fun to watch her.
I think it's definitely in her future...

Lil Guy getting to beat on some drums & work off some energy & boredom *face palm*
Also...I, of course, had to get a picture of one of the sounds you could test:

"I've got a fever..." and you all know this is the only prescription:

LOL!!! Teen Girl found it above the exit of the room. Loved it!

The last exhibit we went thru had to do with the movie "Avatar"...yes the blue people from Na'vi. Not many pictures due to lighting...but here's some of the plants & concept heads used:

It was a full day just being there. Wish we had more time to do stuff that day. But had been an exhausting & fun-filled day, for sure!

Stay tuned...

God Bless, AM~Erica
