Just wanted to post something short and sweet before I fall asleep. I got back pretty early this morning from an awesome concert, which also happened to be my first one ever! Band of Horses (if you haven’t heard of them, you should listen to them. Their music is amazing!) played at State Theater last night, and they really rocked!
I’ve been wanting to go to a concert for a while now, but never had the time and couldn’t get a ride. However, now that I can drive I’ve been begging my parents to let me go to this show, not too far away, and a band I really like! They kept saying, “Oh, Maybe, I don’t know…” and then Surprised me with tickets on my birthday last weekend! (Thanks Mom and Dad!)
Anyways, I’d always been a little bit skeptical of live music. Any recordings I’ve heard on CDs haven’t been that great, so I was ok with not going to concerts. Now that I’ve been to one, I can honestly say that it is an amazing experience. The venue was really neat, the band was great, all amazing musicians, and the opener, Jason Lytle was very good as well! It was a well spent three hours (a couple rows back in front of the stage!) , and I got to go to sleep with good memories, and a nice ringing in my ears. If you get the chance to see them play, or any of your favorite bands, go! It’s an awesome experience, and I’m looking forward to my next concert!
I’m sure it’s an experience that will last a lifetime- I don’t think I’ll ever forget my first concert! So I do have one question for you this week… Who was the first band you saw live, and where did they play?
Have a great week!
