Let’s kickstart the start of the semester/year with concerts! YESSSSSS! Since the start of my job I am able to save a little money for the good things ;). And I decided that I should record/write my experience and thoughts about the concerts I attend to this year. What better way to start it than with Soccer Mommy, Hovvdy and Motiongazer.
This is late but…
Something pretty surreal happened to me. This was actually a few weeks ago but I didn’t have time to write about it. On November 12 my boyfriend and I went to see The Shins. Yes, the band that has been a part of my life since I can remember. I would have never thought that I would be able to see them. I always worried that they would break up or die off before I could ever see them. But, I can now scratch off The Shins on my concert bucket list. This was an experience that was incomprehensible. My boyfriend and I are such nerds when it comes to James Mercer and The Shins, it is actually the main band that brought us together.
Now when I first bought the tickets I didn’t really pay attention to the date. I didn’t care, I wanted to go see The Shins. It wasn’t until the week that I realized that it started after a choir concert I had to perform in. however, by luck, a friend offered to drive us to the venue after the choir concert. And by chance, we got to Emo’s at the perfect time before people started to crow in. We got front row.
Before we saw The Shins, Girlpool performed. I remember that I’ve heard of them before but I’d never thought I would get the chance to actually hear them in person for the first time.
