I have to admit that I never thought I'd be attending one of these concerts. I also admit that I feel so weird knowing that my pictures are all out of order, makes me feel quite odd.
This was the first concert Milton and I attended together, so I knew it would be a good adventure! We were walking around downtown, like we always do, and there was a guy handing out two tickets to people. He asked us if we would like to go to this concert, I was gonna say no but then Milton seemed excited and got them. Ohh whale lol I was pretty skeptical because I don't really like this type of music. Those who know me know I'm more Mexican and like "mainstream" type of music. But since I saw Milton excited, I'm like why not.
I felt this was a pretty cool "post anniversary" date. I didn't know what to wear for the occasion because I wanted to look "rockish". I ended up wearing a flannel, jeans, and my combat boots, aka the boots I used to "jump" fences at school that one time. Hmm, I think that'll make a great post! But anywho, I went home real quick and then went to Milton's house so we can leave together, with his brother and girlfriend. I enjoyed helping him get ready and choose his clothes because for a moment I felt we were at our own place with no worries, just getting ready for a concert date night!
I thought we'd be late because we detoured to get gas and plus traffic and everything, but we made it on time! I remember going up the hill to the House of Blues was a bit exhausting! We got there and I felt like a child. Everyone around us were adults, everyone had a drink in their hand or chilling at the bar. And then there was me. We were looking for a good spot, and the show started! I actually liked the beginning! I thought it would be hardcore, scary, demonic sound type of music. But it wasn't anything like that, good thing because I would have probably left! And have nightmares. We went upstairs to the balcony but came back down because I didn't feel comfortable there. Since it was the balcony and the bar was up there too, it was pretty small and I didn't feel right thinking someone can get a bit too drunk or try to do something. So we decided to finish watching the show downstairs.
The beginning part of the show was great! I was into the music, especially because parts of it was mellow and then the occasional solos! But then somewhere in between it got kind of boring. Or well the songs weren't as interesting. I don't know if it was that or it was because we weren't paying attention because that's when we kept moving from downstairs and the balcony. So I probably wasn't really in the mood for it anymore.
I think we had to leave early because of work for them the next day. I didn't mind as much because it was getting a bit "late", and I felt we had already enjoyed ourselves. One of the songs I really liked, I forgot the name of it. But it was so peaceful and slow and had occasional guitar sounds in it, but it seemed lovely. The lights made it look more nice and everywhere around us couples were hugging each other and were "slow dancing". So we did the same, it was pretty cute.
All in all, I had a great time! It was our first time going to a concert together and although I didn't want to go at all, it was good in the end! And I think that's one thing I've learned, or still am learning, that the things I feel skeptical or judgy about, are the times I enjoy. Well some, not all! If we were given tickets to go see them again, I'd go again. That says something. And it shocked me because like I said, I'm not the type to like that genre.
