So I am a little behind on blogging about all the concerts I got to see recently! Last one I blogged about was Muse. But I got to go to three more since then! First up was EdgeFest!
This was my outfit for EdgeFest. Since it is an outdoor festival I was ready for it to be hot.
And boy was it hot! I got a pretty bad sunburn.
This is the view from my seat. I don't stand in the crowd anymore because it gets too sweaty and gross.
This guy sat in front of me and people kept asking for photos with him. I finally asked my neighbor and she said he is the lead singer for Youngblood Hawke!
I was most excited to see The Gaslight Anthem. They are definitely one of my all time favorite bands ever. I saw them once in a smaller venue and was excited to see them again at EdgeFest. Unfortunately, they didn't play too well. Or maybe they did, but I couldn't hear them at all. I was bummed. But do check out their music anyway, because they really are a great band!
The second band I was most excited to see was Paramore! I am a really big fan of theirs. I also got to see them a long time ago with Jimmy Eat World. That was an amazing show. And this concert was great, too. They played awesome and I already knew all the words to the songs from their new album!
Next concert was.....
Jimmy Buffett! You wouldn't believe it from these pictures but it was literally THE NEXT WEEKEND after EdgeFest. IT WAS SO COLD! That's Texas weather for ya, I guess. I looked stupid all bundled up when everyone around me was wearing hula skirts and coconut bras, but when the sun went down it was freezing cold! Then everyone wished they had bundled up like me.
This place was packed. It was also at the same venue as EdgeFest.
Jimmy Buffett was on my Dad's list of concerts he has always wanted to see. I am so glad I got to go with him!
On the way back to our car I found a lonely coconut bra. So I had to take it home with me!
I think it looks great :D
And the next concert was.......
The Killers! This band was on my Mom's list! It was at the Verizon Theatre. I had never been to a concert there before, and I was really impressed with the place.
I found this awesome couch in the lounge room, too!
We had great seats and the sound was amazing. The vibe of this show was incredible. And the lead singer was SO CUTE.
During the show they shot confetti at the crowd. On Twitter, the band said that somewhere in the confetti are two "golden tickets" ... If you find one bring it to the sound guy in the back and you get to win an AWESOME prize!
We looked and looked but didn't find a golden ticket. It was still so much fun!
I don't have any more concerts planned at the moment. Someday I would like to see No Doubt, Florence + The Machine, and Mumford & Sons. I like music that I can sing along with :)
What band would you like to see in concert?
