I know I said that Jenny was going to be doing a guest post about The Neighbourhood concert we saw in July, but she’s been too busy with work to get around to writing it yet. She did want to write a post, and I was excited to see what she came up with – but I guess you’ll have to stick with my writing for this one. She started writing, but this is as far as she got:
Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend. So as Drew had promised, this is Jenny delivering a guest post.
To follow up, Winstar was a blast and we had a lot of fun. Like he had mentioned, I burned through my allotted monies and then also helped Drew go through his. We attended the Neighborhood concert at the Southside Ballroom on Saturday July 19th and also had a blast! We met a daughter and mother who were interesting….
To be continued!
Oh well, I’ll take it from here.
I bought us tickets to go see The Neighbourhood at South Side Ballroom on July 19th. We both really like The Neighbourhood, so I got the tickets early in case they sold out. We ended up showing up about 10 minutes before the doors were supposed to open, and the line was ridiculous. It went around the building, through the parking lot, and around another building. I had never been to the venue before then, but I found it hard to believe that many people would fit in the building. Here’s a small video from the back of the line, around the second building:
The line eventually started moving and slowly but surely everyone filed into the building. When I got inside I saw how huge it was (it didn’t look so big from the outside). There was a lot of room inside. We ordered a couple of drinks at the bar and saw Jenny’s friend who worked at the event. She gave us VIP passes. We sat at a table out of the crowd and drank while waiting for the show to start.
We were sitting at our own table, minding our own business, when a girl came up to us and asked if we would like to join her and her mom. She was 25, the same age as us, and she wanted to have some company during the show. We said sure and went and sat with the mom and daughter. We found out that they go to a lot of shows together. We made a bit of small talk but then soon the opening bands started and so we stopped talking and just enjoyed the show for a bit. I also managed to snag Jenny a Neighbourhood shirt during one of the breaks.
By the time The Neighbourhood came on stage we were all well into the concert spirit. The show just flew by, and it was awesome.
I only got very short clips of the show with Snapchat – here’s the one video I remembered to save:
The mom and daughter were an interesting duo, and we enjoyed talking to them. We would have had them out to drink more after the show, but they had to go to church in the morning and couldn’t stay out late. After the show, we part ways with the girls and went to BJs for a drink or two. We saw some friends there, then went back to our place for some relaxing before going to Eden later. We eventually got home around 6am when we were finally tired and got some rest.
The concert was a ton of fun, as was the rest of the weekend. I’m so far behind on posts because I’ve been so busy! I’m working on catching up – next on the docket is the rewardStyle boat party. Also coming up: Lakewood Brewery, my parents coming to visit Dallas, Mad Decent Block Party, and various other topics.
