I put a a bit of effort contacting friends/colleagues to see if they wanted to go to music concerts. Now, in 2014 I will now be attending 2 music festivals, a concert abroad in Amsterdam and at least 3 smaller gigs in London, all with bands I really want to see. So looking forward to it! 7 months ago

Mike and I did a full weekend camp out at the Suwannee Music Park, and it was the most amazing weekend EVER. I hope there is a chance to go there for another music festival again. We were happy campers! C: 16 months ago
Tomorrow night I have 2 tickets to Bogarts, a venue in Cincy. The best part is Im going with this amazing woman Ive been seeing for about the past 2 weeks. Honestly Im more intested in hanging out with her VS the concert. Either way it will be a great time :) 17 months ago

I have only been to one concert and had a blast so I will pay better attention to groups that I like and where they are playing concerts and if I am close enough to attend them. 18 months ago
Can officially say I’ve gone to my first proper concert now. After previously only having been to #1) Cheesy, freshers’ week obligatory washed-up pop singer performing at uni and #2) Local bands made up of friends of friends.

Had been looking forward to it for ages but also nervous as anything because I went on my own. It’s not the sort of thing you’d drag people to unwillingly. Opeth and Anathema. :)
Had not listened much to Anathema at all before, but they were the support act and they were just as amazing as the band I was there to see! Never realised before how much more amazing music can sound when it’s played live and you can see and feel all the emotion of it that the bands put in. Even when one of their songs messed up, it was all fine and they made a joke about it, played something else instead and everyone cheered and laughed anyway – love the atmosphere. :)
Also I got right to the front. Was literally in the second row of people – can’t get much better than that, and it made for an even better first concert.
Opeth are a band I love a lot and they did not disappoint. Their set list may as well have been something I’d picked, since they played pretty much everything I’d have wanted to hear, despite some people saying they’ve turned soft recently – it is not true. Mike kept making jokes and was really engaging with the crowd too.
I’ve been really buzzed from this for a good few days. I’m so glad my first experience of this was a good one, and going despite being a bit nervous was a great decision. And now I’m going to see another concert next month. :) 21 months ago
