This past weekend I went to my first legitimate concert! (Festivals, such as Rock USA, don’t count as a legit concert in my book–and neither does seeing Foreigner at a fair with one original band member…)

I went to see Mayday Parade with one of my best friends. The Maine was also there, they played before Mayday.

The band, which has been around since 2005, is currently on its American Lines Tour. Mayday’s latest album, Black Lines is probably one of my favorites (okay, so I love all of the albums equally!)

My friend, Marissa, actually introduced me to the band a few years back. I’m not quite sure how I’d never heard of them before but they instantly became a favorite of mine. “They just get me. They get my life,” I’d tell Marissa. I couldn’t have been more excited to attend my first concert with “my Pipes,” as I call her, and that it was a Mayday concert.

Here’s me and my friend at the Mayday concert! 🙂

It was amazing. I was never sure I’d be a concert-going person because of the atmosphere, but it’s truly awesome seeing a band you relate to so much on stage singing lyrics about your life.

My friend and I actually plan on seeing Disturbed next month! Now they have been one of my favorite bands for well over a decade. I can’t wait. I’m sure I will find a way to relate it to the “black” theme of my blog so I can write about the experience!
