Raise A Glass

I'm getting very horrible at posting...really. So last week, I went to the Dizzy Balloon concert at Slims for my friend Mattie's birthday! It was AMAZING. I wasn't really a fan of Dizzy Balloon. I listened to a couple of their songs and thought they sounded like some generic high school band. But the band was....pretty cute. and the lead singer had AMAZING stage presence. The theatrics were just unbelievably and super high energy. If you get a chance to go to a dizzy balloon concert, go. It's pretty fun. It was a little difficult being in the front row and not knowing any of the songs while everyone else sang along, but the songs are simple enough you can fake it. I did.

one of the million bajillion 5 hr long opening acts. This one was the BEST. AB AND THE SEA. Check them out. Super cute! I told him after the concert that they were the best opening act and he gave me a free CD. NBD.

Lead Singer of Dizzy Balloon. How he has that much energy amazes me still.

Dizzy Balloon was so nice. They were completely willing to take a million and a half pictures with all of us. And sign the drop sticks that two of us managed to get.

Moral of the Story: The night was super fun. I love concerts. I never know the bands, but I'm one of those people who likes to see them live and THEN fall in love. I think it's a pretty good method. Besides it being a little awkward when you're the sole girl who doesn't know the name of the cute drummer...

Outfit...which needed some accessorizing, but I didn't have any time to find anything

  1. Haha, I've faked singing along a couple of times...XD

    Concerts are a great way to fall in love with bands you are not familiar with and help you fall in love with bands even more that you already love.
