The Used in Concert

As I am writing this post, my eardrums are repairing themselves as I am deaf.
Kristy and I attended the concert tonight….and it was excellent!!

There were 2 cover bands.
I missed the name of the first one but they were really good and the lead singer was pretty funny.
The second cover band…which is a well known band, was Taking Back Sunday.
Awesome band, I really enjoyed them :)

But you all know it was the band "The Used" that got us to travel 8 hours to see :)
They played in my town years ago, Ashley and Heather were at that concert…but there happened to be a bit of distruction to the seats when they were there, it involved a mosh pit and some uprooting of some theatre seats. Ashley and Heather didn't go down to the most pit luckily.
So I don't think the band will ever be invited back again to my town :(….so we traveled 8 hours to Winnipeg to see them instead :)

The music was awesome and the lead singer really knows how to involve the audience and get everyone up on their feet.
I would see them again in a heart beat :)

I am a people watcher and believe me there were many to watch….and quite entertaining.
Like the kind drunk guy who befriended the other half asleep drunk guy and they ended up being best of friends…so much so I thought there may have been a date afterwards…but the kind drunk guy got escorted out as he kept changing seats….poor guy had to leave before The Used got on stage, and he was crying. I felt bad for him as he wasn't doing any harm.
Then there was the enthusiastic rocker who was encouraging the audience to get up and Rock On as well. I have to say he played a mean air guitar and drums…I was impressed.
The lead singer from The Used was impressed as well as he gave him a shout out and hugged him after the performance :)

Kristy and I did some shopping today, but I will share that in tomorrows post.
I have a long travel in the early morning…and you know I don't like mornings ;)

Thankful Thursday:
I am thankful for the time I get to spend with my daughter Kristy :)
I am thankful that I am able to be able to do these special trips with my girls.
I am thankful to the artists that make music for us all to enjoy.
I am thankful of my family who I get to see tomorrow when we return home :)

Hope you all had a Creative Thursday :)

Tracy :)
