The concert was SOOOO good!!! I loved every band and Shinedown was amazing Live! They literally sounded so good like right out of the stereo. Have you ever saw someone live and realized that if it wasnt for all the special effects in the studio, they wouldnt sound good at all? Surprisingly every band was great. It felt good to just rock out and sing along and jump and dance with the rest of the crowd. I lost my voice from all the screaming and hollering and it slowly came back yesterday. Now thats a good time. LOL
Oh the people watching was at its best too at the concert. The concerts actually started around 2 and there were 3 or 4 other bands that i had never heard of and didnt make a point to see. SO by the time we got there around 5pm, some people were already toasted from the heat and beers. The outfits were very interesting too. The things people where to an all day concert made me shake my head. Seriously, its Texas people and its blazing hot.
I know i shouldnt do this but i have bought several "HOT" t-shirts that are unauthorized in the parking lot of events. I did the same this weekend. Here's the deal though, i had already bought a shirt at 40$ inside so its not like they didnt get some of my money. The shirts ran real small too so i had to buy a xxl and its another 5 dollars for XXL or larger. They had shirts of course for all the bands and they had the 97.1 BFD shirts ( our rock station hosts the annual concert). I was hoping to buy a BFD shirt that had all the bands listed but it didnt have it. It just had 2016 on it with the radio station logo and BFD. So i had to choose which band i wanted which was a no brainer because i was there to see Shinedown. As we were walking back to our car after concert, sure enough there was a guy selling tshirts . They actually had exactly what i was looking for with all the bands listed. SCORE for 20$!!!! I was a happy camper. Todd just shook his head and laughed because he KNEW i would be getting one. I will say that i actually wear my concert shirts quite a bit so its not like they just sit in my drawer.
Yesterday was a great day too. We had some people over and it was our first get together since we moved in. I'll tell you about it more tomorrow. I gotta run now.
Here is a song from all the bands we saw. I recorded a little bit with my phone but they dont sound good so these are from youtube.
