So, the concert was great lastnight. Shindown was definitely rockin’ (not that I doubted them). The opening band? Not so much. In fact, they pretty much just sucked. When you play a show and the audience can’t tell one song from the next, you definitely have some problems. Oh, and if every song ends the exact same way, your audience will want to puke. At least I’m hoping that’s why the girl a couple of people over from us was puking. I could have tolerated the opening act better if I would have been as drunk as most of the people there. But, being completely sober and waiting for one of my favorite bands to play did not add up to me having much patience. Fortunately, I did not have any sharp objects handy to shove in my ears and I can still hear (somewhat) today.
But, as I said, Shinedown was great. They have quickly become one of my favorite bands to see live. Not only do they put on a killer show, but they seem truly appreciative of the opportunity they have been given. I love listening to Brent explain the stories behind their songs. I love watching Jason play his guitar. I love their energy and love for the music. I just love all of them as a band.
I also really liked the venue they played at. It was the first time I have been there. It was at a new club that just opened up at one the casinos nearby. It was a pretty cool place to catch a show. In fact, I liked it so much I’m considering trying to get some people together to help me celebrate my birthday there in a few weeks. It could be fun.
It was actually kinda nice to get out of the house with hubby for a little bit too. I wish we could have made it a longer night, but since it was the middle of the week we had to go straight home after the concert. We got home just before 11:00 I think. Then, Zach decided not to sleep lastnight so I’m running on pretty low fuel today. But, it was worth it. I really did enjoy myself and I have a major urge to go home and pick up my guitar tonight.
