I’ve never been to Bonaroo or Coachella because I don’t think I could handle the insane crowds. I’m lucky if I can hang out at the NC State Fair for an hour without the crowd driving me nuts. In case y’all didn’t know I don’t celebrate massive crowds.
I’ve discovered a happy medium… go to three concerts in one week! Sounds reasonable, right?! On the upside I’ll be able to go home, sleep in my own bed, and take a shower in the comfort of my own home vs. camping out for multiple days in a row and probably get zero sleep. The only downside I can think of is having a terrible time getting out of bed the following day to go to work. I think I can do it! (Just as long is I live off of coffee and water).
For those of you curious as to what shows I’m going to…
- 6/10- The National at Red Hat Amphitheater. I bought seats for most of my concerts because frankly, I’m too old to be hanging out on the lawn.
- 6/11- Passion Pit at Koka Booth Amphitheater. Remember in the above statement when I said I was too old for lawn seats? Yeah, well I bought lawn seats for this show. Koka Booth is a small venue, so I think I should be able to see the actual performance (fingers crossed).
- 6/13- The Lumineers at Koka Booth Amphitheater. Ok, so I had jazz hands when I was purchasing pre-sale tickets and I meant to purchase lawn seats (again, Koka Booth is a small venue.. blah, blah, blah), but it turns out I bought pit tickets. Fail! I guess the upside is I can be super close to the band that’s if I don’t get trampled.
Needless to say I’ll have different views at each concert… lawn, seats and the pit. I wonder if I can score backstage passes to see the JoBros when they come to town…
