Kevin's favorite band was planning to perform near Seattle, last weekend. For the first time, he asked me to if I'd like to go. So I said that I would. Before I married my husband, I had never heard of the band. I remember seeing a record album cover at some point in the 80's but had no idea or interest to know whose record it was for. So when I married my husband, he was no longer listening to them, or really any other secular music. So I didn't hear or see anything related to them. So, since then, things have changed, and he listens to this group again, as well as several others. So, in the past 7 years, I've heard more about this band and it's members. So, when he talks about them, I have a better idea as to what or who he's talking about. I've heard their music, and they play really, REALLY well, however, it's not really music that I listen to. If I listen to anything secular, it's usually something that I listened to in my highschool/college years.................or, the Jonas Brothers (thanks to my daughter, lol). Mostly what I do listen to is on the Christian radio stations.
I never went to that many concerts and most of them were Christian. The last secular one that I went to see was for Weird Al Yankovic at the county fair. The last two Christian shows I went to, were in enclosed buildings, and they were so loud that the bodies of the audience absorbed the volume, and some of the opening acts, literally screamed at us. I had heard that the venue for this latest show was open on the sides and back, so I felt that I probably wouldn't be blown totally out of the place, and I learned that even though this group did scream out their songs in the early years, they really didn't do that anymore. But, in any case, I thought that I would make sure that my purse was ready for almost anything during the show (my husband wasn't so sure that I should bring it, but most men aren't carrying the things that we women are. A purse is our home away from home as it has the basic necessities to keep our lives from falling apart..
So, here's what I packed, and who knows, it might help other future inexperienced concert goers (one never knows............)
Hey, I may be in my 40's, and the rain kind of flattened my hair, but a girl still wants to look cute & pretty for her guy at a concert!
