Went to my first concert in over a year last night! It was supposed to be hubby’s first concert ever but he’s had a cold the past couple of days so one of my friends came along with me and my cousins instead. It was nice having a girls night and just catching up on life and such.
I was a terrible blogger last night and didn’t take many photos but sometimes you just gotta be in the moment, you know? For concerts I usually try to dress super comfortably so I don’t have to worry about anything and can actually enjoy the show. I wore an oversized denim shirt over a striped tank top and my gray joggers from my finals outfit post. Shoes are definitely the most important thing to consider, especially if you’ll be standing for most of the night. I always go with closed toed shoes cause there’s always someone who spills their beer or is super wasted and tramples all over your feet. We were in the seated section but I knew I’d probably stand for most of the night so I wore my red chucks. Hubby dropped me off to my cousin so that she wouldn’t have to come all the way to my parents’ to pick me up. The headliner for the event was Imagine Dragons! I saw them in concert a few years ago when they were opening for AWOLNATION and it’s so great to see how far they’ve come since then. Dan Reynolds is such an incredible and humble performer and even after all this time and fame, he hasn’t lost that about himself. Metric and Halsey opened for them. It’s great to see more lead female artists in the industry these days. I usually go to shows in smaller venues because it’s more intimate and you can actually see the artist instead of having to look at the screens but my cousin asked us about this show a few months ago and I thought it would be nice for hubby to go to his first concert (even though he ended up not going…). It ended up being a really great show even though there were probably 12,000 or so people there. I definitely loved their first album more than their second and was hoping they’d play more of their old stuff but it was still a great time.
Music has always been a pretty big part of my life, especially through high school and the beginning of college. It’s gotten me through a lot of difficult times. I really enjoy going to concerts every so often to see live music, especially for more low key artists. I love when you can literally feel the rhythm in your bones. I love that so many people can come together in the same place because of their love of music. It may seem cheesy but it kind of gives me hope for our generation.
Today is hubby’s birthday so we cut a cake after midnight and will be having dinner with family and friends tonight. He was a total cheater and looked at his present early because “curiosity got the better of him.” I’ll have a post up later this week about his birthday and presents! Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
