Flashback Friday! First Concert

It's been a while since I did one of these, but I felt, uh, inspired, after watching VH1 top 100 songs of the 90s. (yes, that is how I like to spend a good 4 hours of my time! lol)

Unless the correct brain cells have long been killed, I'm pretty sure this was my first concert.

It was a great one, too! Bush and No Doubt opened, I believe, unless I was seeing Bush and No Doubt opened for Bush. Hmmm? (Jen, do you remember? I know I saw you there!)

Either way, Green Day was one of my first concerts. I was a freshman in high school. I wasn't allowed to go alone with friends, so my brother & brother-in-law came, too. It was pretty fun.

What was your first concert?

Oh boy do I remember!!!! Ha ha ha! Jeff always became the insta-chaperone for all of those kinds of things--Now, thanks to him, I have some pretty embarassing stories following me after the Rage Against the Machine concert--LOL! Every time they play a 90's flashback weekend on the radio, I feel like I time travelled back to high school--I used to do that with 80's music and called myself a child of the 80's, but now I know what "real music" is and tell my little bro and sis ALL about the good old days with Nirvana and Green Day and Pearl Jam---Ha ha ha! I'm a nerd! (And we're getting old!)

hey.. we watched the 100 greatest songs of the 90's too. We had some pretty great laughing at that one.

I think my first concert wasn't until I was in college. My parents wouldn't let us go ANYWHERE. Ahh! Anyway it was with my hubby/then boyfriend ( I think this was my first ) and we saw Pearl Jam.

Oh man, I have been LOVING the greatest hits of the 90's. I've even been compiling a list of songs I want to download. I think I'm up to 75... I'll see a song on the show that I want to download and think of 4 more. My iTunes is gonna blow up. My 10 year reunion is later this year... I could probably do the whole soundtrack.

As far as I can remember, my first concert was the Beach Boys. Yeah, people, I'm hard core. WHAT.

PS thanks for posting this video. I'm rocking out. Needed the pick-me-up.

Stacey-glad to help. :)

Jennifer-so was it Green Day w/ Bush & No Doubt opening for them? I remember getting ready for *a* concert at your house, but was it this one?

Andrea-jealous! I'll bet Pearl Jam was great. :)

Andrea said...

I like some of Pearl Jam, they're growing on me. That's my hubby's all time favorite - EVER! He he!
The concert was - interesting. I wasn't used to drunkers crabbing my butt and such. It was outside and fun!

PS) It was a Bush concert with The Goo Goo Dolls opening for No Doubt before Bush played--I went to the Green Day concert, too, but I don't remember who opened for them--something 99???
