I’ve only been to a handful of concerts in my life and most of them I just go to tag along. Despite living in Austin, I’m not much of a live music guy. That said, there has only been one band to make me do something like drive to snowy Denver in November with a group of friends and then immediately back in order to be at their last show. That band was Five Iron Frenzy back in 2003. Unfortunately, I only remember a little bit of the trip. Being really cold outside the Fillmore waiting to get in, not feeling well once in and going up to a second floor area to rest a bit during the actual concert, and then coming back down to ensure I enjoyed their last song:
I certainly wouldn’t say I’m a ska type of guy, but there’s just that right something about FIF that gets to me. I remember being hit by a ton of emotion during their last song and joining in with the crowd saying “THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU…” when it ended.
That is all. =)
