“So Kiss Me Hard”

I love getting excited about shows. I love that excitement of the band getting on stage. I love when the lights just go out and you get the sudden chills before they walk on stage.

Because I’ll be completely honest. After working so many shows, a handful of different festivals, you lose your concert innocence. Same thing when you figure out that Santa Clause isn’t real.

To anyone ten and under, I’m sorry you had to read that. But eventually, you figure out when you look under your parents’ bed.

Getting that excited for a show for me is rare. I absolutely love Dashboard Confessional. They have been one of my favorite bands since I was about 12.

I’m not sure why I gravitate towards them in but their music is catchy and very poetic at the same time. I’m not quite sure what that means, but it is.

I think it’s amazing that Chris the lead singer still has his voice after all these years.

Hell, I get a sore throat after a night of talking loud.

 

 

 

“And I Do”

There’s a saying, “Fashion repeats itself”. There’s also that other saying “History repeats itself.” And then of course, “Good music never dies”.

I went to Lisa Loeb concert last night. I’m not going to lie, I didn’t realize who she was until I was at the show. Oops…

Side note:

I got these VIP tickets from a fundraiser and I took my mentor/friend to it. I let her choose the show of her choice and  she was super excited and I’m happy. I’m glad I was able to do that for her!

Needless to say, as soon as I figured out that her hits “Stay” and “I do”, I knew exactly who she was. It was reliving my 90’s childhood from elementary school.

No surprise at all,she was very good even after all these years. Her corky, nerdy, library/rocker style is that kind of music that you will still find on the radio.

I’m very happy I went to the show, because it just reminded me that if you were good then, you are probably good now. She didn’t disappoint. I hope you all get the chance to see her!
