Third Eye Blind

Hello There My Lovelies,

Last night I went to a free concert downtown to see Third Eye Blind with Ashleigh, because she is a huge Third Eye Blind fan.

The concert was free and outdoors, and it was a lot of fun. Initially I didn't really want to go because being forcefully smooshed together with strangers does not turn me on. But I ended up having a great time. They played a couple of their hits that came out when I was in high school. We were lucky to get pretty close to the stage. I didn't get the best view because there was a banner in front of me, but it was good enough, I got a decent side view of the band. The people next to me were cool, the girl next to me was shorter than me, so she understood my frustration.

A lot of enthusiasm from the band, and apparently they're from San Francisco, and the lead singer went to UC Berkely. Great show. Unfortunately, it got cut short for some reason, but what are you gonna do ? It's free, right ? The crowd fed off of their enthusiasm and we all enjoyed the show.

There was a lot of douchebag behaviour though. People forcefully shoving themselves through the crowd, for one. I ended up yelling "Douchebag Alert !" in front of one tatted up guy that looked like a Cholo, and let him stare me down after. A couple of people also decided to smoke whatever it is they had, and the guy next to me decided to blow his stank on me. Just gross.

It's Third Eye Blind, that's not even really the band to get high to. Couldn't we save that for Snoop Dogg ? Well, what do I know, when I saw Dave Matthews in concert, there were tons of smoke rings in the crowd.

I saw a couple of body surfers in the crowd too. Apparently, I heard later from another friend that went, that a grandma got trampled by a few young people. That sucks, luckily my friend helped her up. I mean, how can you not help up an old woman with a cane ?

I don't understand why so many teens were there. This band was hip when I was a teen, and that was ten years ago. While Ashleigh was pulling out of the parking garage, a bunch of teens almost got smacked by running in front of her car. Her reaction was priceless as she shouted to the spawn from hell : " You motherfu*kers ! What the hell ? Seriously, you aren't even 18 !"

Good times, my little secret squirrels, good times. I was happy to get out of the house. We went to Cheesecake Factory after, and I had the shrimp scampi pasta and chocolate truffle cake. Delish ! Talk about a mouthgasm ! And I had leftovers for today.

Okay that is all for now.

Tootles.

Good times is right! I think you'll even find smoke rinks at a Michael Buble concert. It's just cleaner stuff.

Btw, I love The Cheesecake Factory's Southern Pecan cheesecake...OMG!! Their crab cakes are awesome, too! I need to get my butt back there again. It's been over 10 years!
