I’m slacking on getting photo passes for concerts. In fact, our new kitty is using one of my old press passes as a toy. Slacking. Well, it’s more about deciding at the last minute to go to shows. Obviously, I need a plan for getting a last-minute photo pass.
Most places used to let people take backpacks, messenger bags, and big purses. It’s a bit different since the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. The place that we went to last night did not allow backpacks or even medium sized purses. It’s understandable.
I’m ok with not taking my purse but I did miss my camera. I probably could’ve taken it with me. My phone takes crappy pictures and doesn’t zoom worth a damn. Everyone else had great phones with awesome cameras. I could tell because everyone had their phones up taking fairly high quality pictures and videos.
So my boyfriend always sees someone he knows everywhere we go. Literally everywhere. Also, he has a friendly face and a great personality. So people want to be his friend. There was a music blogger that came up to him and talked about the bands and his blog. He even had a t-shirt. When the blogger moved on, I looked up his blog. It’s pretty good actually. Heres’s the link: The Rust Belt Chronicles.
My boyfriend asked me, “Did you ever get shirts made?” Yes, I did and haven’t done anything with them yet. Soon – when I’m done slacking.
Usually, I do not venture too far into the crowd. #1 Mosh Pits are not my thing. #2 Crowd surfers pop up from all over the place. However, I wanted to get closer to see Halestorm. Worst idea ever.
How could I know that we would get stuck by chicks with long hair and dudes that were 7 foot tall? The boyfriend and I are only 5’3″ and 5’5″. We don’t wear heels. I only thought ten times about tying two ponytails together and wrapping it up with my gum. I’m not always a mean girl but I was wearing a Kublai Khan shirt so I’m not the one to test by waving your ponytail around. Violence with bubblegum is not the way either. It was time to go buy band merch and a get a milkshake anyway.
Here are some pictures of the show. Note to self: Take your camera. Photo pass or not.
