My First Concert
- •Technically, the first concert I ever attended:Zootopia Spring 2005 - one of those radio station mega-shows with like 10 of the most popular artists of the year. Jesse McCartney 4ever❤️. Went with 3 friends and 2 dads.
- •My first concert that was a *real* band:Great Big Sea Spring 2006 - a Canadian rock/folkish band from Newfoundland. My dad saw them on PBS or something and got really into them. My family has been to 10+ concerts. Also my mom's first concert.
- •My first music festival:Bamboozle, Spring 2007 - I thought I was going to write Bonnaroo, Summer 2015 here but then I remembered the "festival" I went to in the Meadowlands parking lot with basically my entire high school. We saw every band we listened to that year, highlight was the unannounced Motion City Soundtrack set.
- •My first *grown up* concert/proper concert experience:Vampire Weekend, Winter 2008 - back when they were the *new thing* I was a senior in high school and the concert was on a Monday night. Still love them. First time I saw someone smoking pot.
