Tune In Tuesday (13)
Each week I participate in Tune in Tuesday, hosted by Greads!
This week's Tune in Tuesday is Concert Edition. Back in the stone age, when I was younger, I went to a lot of concerts. I mean A LOT. Music is still my passion, but since moving further away from Washington, DC, I don't go to many concerts anymore. Okay, to be fair, even when I lived right outside of the city, I didn't go to many. I just hit that age where it got hard to go to shows and go to work the next day. I know, excuses!
Anyway, the show I want to talk about today was several years ago, back when it was no big deal to just get in the car and drive to New York for a gig. For most of my life, I lived north of Baltimore, so I would go to shows in DC, Philly, NYC and Baltimore too. The show I'm talking about took place at the Webster Hall in NYC.
In 2005, Interpol was my favorite band, and I've seen them at least seven times, in several states. When I met my husband, and he told me that he had driven two hours to see Interpol, I knew I'd found a good match. :D
We waited for hours to get to the front of this show, and it was worth it. I did almost get into a fight when this girl thought she could cut the line right before the show started, but when everyone started yelling at her, she eventually went where she belonged...at the back of the line.
It was one of the best shows ever, and when they played Stella at the very end of the show as an encore, it was one of my best concert experiences ever. Interpol aren't as great as they once were, but I will always love their earlier music.
