Concert Crowd

We went with my brother Dusty to a concert last night. We went to see the New Amsterdams play with Big Head ------ and the Monsters. Really, I was only interested in the New Amsterdams, but the Monsters' performance turned out to be pretty entertaining as well.

It wasn't because of the music. It was the people who had come to see the show.

It's been a while since I've been to a venue where all the people crowding in around you are in their 40s and early 50s. Lots of long-haired men with t-shirts that say things like: "One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor." From where I was standing, I saw two different men who vigorously played air guitar through the entire performance. The women were also very entertaining to watch. They usually had frizzy-fried hair, plunging necklines, and super-tight jeans.

Now, I realize that I may sound really really harsh. Please understand, I did enjoy watching my fellow concert-goers enjoy themselves. It's just not everyday that I see 45-year-olds getting busted for smoking pot at a concert.

Sounds like a crowd of people that spend at least one day a year riding one of my work ambulances...

Wow I haven't been anywhere where people were getting busted for pot, let alone 45 year olds. Did you get high from breathing the air?
