12 Favorite concerts: #blogtober16

Honestly, I have been to many, many concerts. It’s hard to say which one was the best. So I’m going to name my top twelve favorite concerts. I tried to just live five or ten but I could not do it.

1. Santana. It was an amazing show. Unfortunately, I can’t find any pictures. I think my camera was broken or misplaced.
2. Joni Mitchell. She did an album of jazz standards. I think she still sounds great no matter what she sings.
3. Miss May I. They are awesome.

4. Chaka Khan. I could see the color of her eyeshadow. I had never been so close to the front stage before.

5. Stone Sour. Epic. I wish it didn’t have to end.

6. Lyrnrd skyrnd. They rock. Probably more than most of the young dudes in bands.

7. Parliament. I blame this concert for my hearing loss. This picture is so old that I had to login to Myspace to find it.

I was hoping to see D’Angelo but he cancelled. I think he has potential to be my favorite.

This a summer, I missed every show that I wanted to see. Red Hot Chili Peppers. Prophets of Rage. Slipknot (FYI: I used to be able to tie a slipknot.) Whenever I get to take a vacation, I’m just going to concerts and the beach. Maybe a concert on the beach. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

3 Things You Will Need For Summer Concerts

While running some mommy-related errands, I was totally daydreaming about going to concerts this summer. I found a few things that you may also need for going to concerts this summer.

1. I found these pretty cool earplugs. I feel like I could wear them and hardly anyone would steal them.

2. Sunglasses. Maybe even a spare pair of sunglasses. I had a pair break in the middle of a concert. It was a pretty rockin’ show.

3. Chapstick. No joke. There’s nothing worse than having chapped lips and not having chapstick at a concert. Ok. Maybe getting your nose broken in the mosh pit would be worse. Still. Chapped lips are awful.

Some dude bought my chapstick for $10 at a concert. He was really thankful that I was prepared. Being a mom comes in handy even at rock concerts.
