At shows lately, my friends and I always ask each other if we’re getting too old for this. I used to live for getting VIP tickets and getting to the front of the barricade, and lining up at least five hours before doors open was the only way to go. These days I’m happy standing at the back. (It sounds so much better there, too.)
Kids at shows look so young now, and I tend to feel out of place. But when the lights go down and the music starts playing, I remember why this is my favorite thing in the entire world. Live music will always bring me the best kind of high.
