tree63 in concert
last friday night i attended my first concert ever and had a blast.
the full blame of my depravity rests in the fact that i live in alaska, which may as well be siberia for all musical groups are concerned.
the few concerts we do manage to get in the state are for groups on their popularity deathbed and just wont seem to die. so what do they do with them? send em to alaska! that should kill their spirit right quick and in a hurry.
they are almost too embarassing to even mention. for instance: 98 degrees, carlson center, fairbanks, 2001. ozzy osbourne, sullivan arena, anchorage, 1996 and 2002.
i dont know exactly how it happened, but tree63, a christian band from south africa, just happened to make it to fairbanks for their 100th concert friday night.
and as it being my first and only concert experience, i feel justified in saying that it was great.
i had a friend who was stage security, and i promised to distract her with some miraculously beautiful cleavage as i dove onto the stage. only problem? the 300 pimply 10th graders who packed themselves against the stage like sardines.
so not only did i not get to [a] flash anyone or [b] dive onto the stage (and possibly receive a black eye from her elbow), i also did not get closer than ten feet from the stage for pictures.
