Friday after work a friend and I headed to the local fairgrounds to hear some good ol’ country music. If you see my updates on Twitter, you know that it was Rascal Flatts. I have actually seen them twice before, once at the same fairgrounds. However, last time I was sitting back there:
And this time, I was sitting here:
It was an amazing show! When the bass was loud enough, I could actually feel it pounding in my chest. I have never had seats so close (about 15 rows back), and I don’t think I can go back to the nosebleeds again.
There were still some odd moments – like when two Barbie look-a-likes came and sat next to us. Being 5’3″ and not quite at my fighting weight made it hard for me to stand next to them. Thankfully, my friend agreed to switch seats with me (a good deal for him, KWIM?!) and they actually left after a few songs. Then there was this guy:
(stood there with his leg up on the seat like that for the whole time they were resetting the stage after opening act Darius Rucker)
I took a bunch of pictures on my point-and-shoot (cameras with detachable lenses not allowed) and a few short videos. You can click on the collage below to see the pictures full-sized in Flickr.
Next up is Sugarland in September and Brad Paisley in October – yeehaw!!
