expectations

so yeah last night sucked. sucked.

i had been looking forward to the black keys concert at the agora for months. a huge group of my friends were going and on paper it was going to be a great night.

we started out at the maproom where a handful of blueberri stoli's set the pre-concert mood for me. around 9ish we headed to the venue. the show technically started at 8 but with two opening band the keys weren't going to take the stage till 10ish.

we would get there with plenty of time right?

wrong.

the place was packed - there wasn't a single seat available. you couldn't stand in the aisles, which left the only standing room shoulder to shoulder way in the back of the theater. i'm short so i couldn't even see over everyone let alone the frunking stage. i mean i heard patrick and dan so i knew they were on stage but i couldn't tell you what either one of them was wearing.

lesson learned - if you are a real fan of the band you are seeing you need to go with mutual fans not people that have only heard one song that they listened to the day of the show.

i ended up spending a lot of the show outside of the theater by the bar cause of the lack of seating/standing room. which just flat out put me in a pissy mood. the shots did help though.

another bad decision was going to maproom after the concert instead of bier market with other friends. it was so lame, everyone coupled up and i basically i wanted to poke my eyes out with a cocktail sword.

it just sucked cause friday night was something that i had been looking forward to and it was an utter let down. i ended up getting emotional and reminiscent and calling a bunch of my canton friends and made my sister listen to me vent and get all blubbery.

ya know, just a standard friday.

not.

you can't be 100% on every night i guess.

here's to hoping that the all day superbowl party at mulberry's tomorrow will make up for my lackluster friday.

  3. it was so lame, everyone coupled up and i basically i wanted to poke my eyes out with a cocktail sword. And this is why Sweets and I generally stay in. =) Sorry you had a crappy night. Given how many great nights you have, I guess you can chalk this one up to taking one for the team. xoxo

  4. Sounds like a crappy night, that's what sisters to vent to were created for. Hope today is better.

  6. That is disappointing. I hope the Super Bowl party is a lot more fun for you!

  7. I have a theory that when we look forward to a night out it never lives up to expectations but if you go in thinking it will be a mediocre night (or just not thinking at all!) it's usually a great time!

  8. Ugh. I know that "poke my eyes out with a cocktail sword" feeling. Sorry it was a letdown. Super Bowl parties usually live up to the expectations though.

  10. SUCKS. That happened to me a couple months ago with Scythian, my favorite Irish band. Not only was I not sitting, I didn't even get INSIDE until after they'd started, because there was a line around the block. Arghhhh.

  11. A lot of my friends went to the show and said the same thing, that it was way too crowded. I wanted to go but now am kinda glad I didn't.

  12. I definitely learned that if I want to go to a concert, I need to go with someone who loves the singer/band as much as I do. I also learned: be there early if there is no assigned seating.

    Hope the rest of your weekend was a lot better though!
