I went to my second concert last night. That's right.. the second concert in my entire life was last night to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. My first was Neil Diamond at the ripe old age of 8. There are two types of people in this world...
I have a friend who is crazy ridiclous amazing at winning prizes off of the radio, giveaway blogs, etc. We made a friendly wager. She won the tickets and we went to the concert together. Talk about a ladies night! Not only did she win the tickets, she won floor seats, five rows from the stage and center section. We couldn't not have asked for anything better. After two and a half hours of a dang good show I have learned some things...
1) Earplugs don't do any good if you keep them in your pocket
2) Concerts with friends are pretty sweet
3) Rock stars aren't all that good looking close up
4) Electric violins are a.w.e.s.o.m.e.
5) I think to audition for a rock band you have to be able to do the hair flippy thing for at least an hour straight
6) Being so close I could pick out the fingerings on the guitar while the dude was playing was amazing
7) Having several thousand tons of metal and flashing lights above my head moving was a bit unnerving at times
8) The compositions and arrangements of the pieces was like candy for my ears (when they weren't ringing)
9) Be sure to tell your eldest daughter to leave the door unlocked or take a set of keys with you so you can get back in the house in the wee hours of the morning
10) I want to do it again
