If anyone read my earlier post, this might make sense. This was another draft I was about to turn in but I decided to turn in my photography one instead. I thought since I don't have time to edit photos why not just post pre-written material that applies to some of us here. :)
The loud booms of the bass. The screaming of the teenager girls. The sweat of the performers. There is nothing that surpasses the emotions that I feel at a rock concert. The passion and dedication seeps through the singer’s microphone as the strumming guitars, beating drums, and low bass reverberate through the walls of the large venue, fit to accommodate a whole stampede of fangirls (me included). The band’s faces are almost completely blocked, as all I can see are bobbing figures in front of me as everyone is jumping up and down as adrenaline takes over. After ten minutes, everyone’s lungs falter after screaming and singing the lyrics louder than the singer himself. Soon enough, it’s not just the performers’ sweat that goes flying everywhere, it’s the audiences. It doesn’t matter though, especially when my idols, role models, and heroes are standing on a raised platform five feet away from me. Then, the group performs that one song. My favorite song. That song that has inspired me and helped me through the times where even people couldn’t help, and I think to myself, “And this moment is exactly why I have been waiting two months for this day to come”. Despite all of the people around me though, I feels as if the band is serenading me, not the crowd of tired, reeking teenagers. Suddenly, it feels as if the whole room of listeners morph into one large giant, as everyone is jumping up and down simultaneously, singing the lyrics brokenly. No one cares about how out of tune they sound though, especially me. All that matters is that the artist on my iPhone Music application is suddenly in front of me, playing the songs that I have been listening and humming since the day I first heard them.
Sidenote: This was written about the This Century & Austin Gibbs concert I was at two months ago. Best concert ever? I THINK YES.
