It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these kind of posts. A while ago, I had decided that they would do better on my photography site, but now I’m wondering why I thought that would be a good idea. I love music, I listen to all kinds, but I’ve never been one for concerts. I’m not a fan of being surrounded by people that I don’t know and I couldn’t be bothered to spend money on the tickets.
For some reason 2019 has changed this philosophy. I have three scheduled concerts to attend this year, so far, and I’ve already gone to two of them. In January, I went to US Bank Arena to see Panic At The Disco, which was absolutely mind blowing. I spent a pretty penny on tickets, but I was really surprised about how good the seats were! Not that it really mattered, once Brendon took the stage, literally no one sat back down, I stood for practically three hours making myself hoarse, by screaming out the lyrics. I went with my friend Sarah, and we had an absolute blast. I had no idea who the opening acts were, but they were getting down!
Last week, I went to go see Watsky at Bogarts and while the tickets were WAY more affordable, the parking was absolute shit. It was general admission, so I spent a good half of the show trying to get somewhere where I could see the full length of the stage. I wish I had been smarter and stood on the sides, those were the perfect vantage spots. I hadn’t heard of his opening acts, but I thoroughly enjoyed them! I went to this concert by myself because no one had any idea who I was going to go see, but they missed one hell of a concert. I’ve never been somewhere that allowed crowd surfing before, and it was as cool as it sounded.
I’ve really enjoyed the experiences, and I’ve started looking into more concerts in my area. In May, I’m going to see The 1975 and I’m so so excited! I decided that I was going to be more adventurous in 2019, and I’m glad to see myself keeping up with that promise to myself. I’m also just super excited to see how many concerts that I actually enjoy the headliner I can find in my hometown, the best part of these three concerts is that I don’t have to travel far, or worry about parking/hotel costs, which allow me to go to even more than normal because they aren’t a huge financial struggle.
