As a new year approaches I wanted to take a look back at some memorable shows over the past years. Music feeds my soul. I’m not subject to one genre, I like it all.
Dashboard Confessional & AJR
I can’t stress how much of a good show this was! Dashboard seriously put on the best show! First time ever seeing them and I can’t wait to see them again. Also can’t wait to hear AJR again in April when they come back to Delmar Hall. They have such a retro sound and had the crowd loving them!!
Scored free tickets from my friend Keith who’s the lead singer of The Cinema Story. Took my boyfriend Cody who LOVES them! The show was at a small venue called The Firebird in STL.
“You were easy on my eyes. You were heavy on my heart.”
The Cinema Story & Glass Mansions
The Cinema Story is a band I support often! The lead singer is one of my good friends so I try to make as many shows as I can! They opened for Glass Mansions who I didn’t know at all. But after hearing them I really liked their music and their retro type show they put on! They are definitely an up and coming band!
Wayback Pointfest with The Offspring, Sublime With Rome, and The Menzingers
I was so stoked for this concert. I love The Offspring, seen them years ago. They were just as good this time. The Menzingers were a band I wasn’t familiar with but I did enjoy the show. Sublime with Rome was exactly as aspected. We were slaushed by the time they played and drunkenly sang along to every song.
“Well I know I’m being used, that’s okay because I like the abuse.” – The Offspring
We started drinking at 11 am and it was hot af. Never again. Seriously couldn’t even tell you who all played . I was dropping in sweat and Jamie was mad bc I wasn’t going down to mosh. But I do remember Yellowcard…The whole reasoning for going.. Plus the free tickets Jamie scored at her work!
New Found Glory
Basically the first time seeing them. They were at that Warp Tour that I barley remember I think I caught like one song. But I wasn’t real big on them but my friend Keith is obsessed with them so they grew on me!
Taking Back Sunday
I have always loved TBS they are my FAVORITE band. This was the first time I ever seen them, it was at Ballpark Village in STL. Great time with good friends!
“You’re a touch overrated; you’re a lush and I hate it.”
Brand New & Circa Survive
Traveled 4 hours to Kansas City to see them at The Midland. Ended up running into good friends and we jammed all night. Brand New lyrics always hit the spot.
“You are the smell before the rain, you are the blood in my veins.”
Free Birthday tickets from my friend Ty at last minute! This was like the 3rd time I’ve seen them, never gets old! Craig were my clothes I honestly don’t even know what he was thinking but it was just a sight to see. Unforgettable night !
