In the 8th grade, me and two of my friends went to a radio station concert, with my dad. I'm trying really hard to remember who it was exactly that we wanted to see preform, because everybody that played that night was just awful, but... I'm drawing a blank.
What I remember most from our trip to the Rose Garden, is the drive there. We all dressed up in "I'm a rebel, really" outfits, try not to be jealous of my thumb ring, and sat beside each other in the backseat of my Dad's boat sized Cadillac. Before the show started, we ran through the fountain and entered radio station contests, we got big giant drinks in overpriced cups, and then once the concert started, we screamed like girls and eventually forced my dad out onto the balcony where he was probably respectfully losing his mind with an entire pack of cigarettes.
Gosh, its really bothering me, who was it that we wanted so badly to see? I know Hanson wasn't there.
Oh wait- that's right. Jordan Knight, from New Kids on the Block?
So dreamy. *sigh*
All of those shirts that we're wearing in the pictures by the way, are mine, haha. My friend Nichole, with the short hair, is wearing my BUSH shirt. Syd, the blond, was wearing what can only be described as my "stoner" shirt, even though I'm allergic to anything (and everything) that could get me even remotely high (I don't know what I was thinking, I don't know where that shirt even came from), and I was wearing my Red Hot Chili Peppers shirt. I think we all had chokers on, and thumb rings (like I mentioned earlier). Clearly, we- were- awesome.
Want to play along? You're more than welcome to post any concert related picture that you might have buried in your vault, but if you don't have one, any picture from your past will do. You can post it on your blog, facebook, twitpic, myspace- whatever works for you. And yay guess what I finally got around to making... a Flashback Friday button (maybe its more exciting for me than it is for you?)! Copy the html code into the bottom of your post, and voila- an easy way for people to click back to this blog post and play along! You can grab the button down at the vvvveeeerrrryyyy bottom of the page, below all of my blog entries. Or you can just type out a text link like we have in the past, whichever works for you.
Next weeks theme, which is totally optional, is going to be class portraits. It could be a group shot, a yearbook style shot, a picture taken of you while working on a project- whatever. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
