Last night was the 1st time I ever intentionally went to a concert alone. The 1st time I went to see a movie alone, I felt really weird about it beforehand then, afterwards, decided it was pretty f*ckin awesome. I now feel the same way about concerts!
Everything fell perfectly into place. I found a chick on Craigslist who was willing to sell me a $30 face value ticket for only $15 cash. That chick turned out to be really nice & was also at the show alone (since she couldn't rally anyone to take her 2nd ticket) so we ended up watching the show together & I now have a new chill concert buddy! You can never have too many.
Towards the end of the show, I was recording one of the last songs of Foals' set (see 1st video below) &, because I was determined to get the entire song from start to finish, I refused to stop filming even while there was big commotion going on directly in front of me. Everyone was scrambling around looking for something on the floor when I had JUST felt something bump my toe. I thought to myself that whatever everyone was looking for was probably next to my foot but I refused to stop filming & look (that's how dedicated I am...haha). A few minutes later, the song ended, I stop filming, I looked down &, sure enough, there was a drumstick lying RIGHT NEXT TO ME! I know a drumstick isn't a huge deal but, at the time, I was STOKED. To be honest, I'm still stoked :-)Finally, & most importantly, Foals were INCREDIBLE live! They were SO energetic & fun to watch on stage. There wasn't a single song I wasn't TOTALLY into. At one point, during the encore, lead singer Yannis Philippakis was climbing on the railing of the balcony in back. The crowd LOVED it...& so did I. If you ever get a chance to see Foals, I HIGHLY recommend you take it.
