Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over
The kid went to her first concert last night. She and her new great friends from junior high saw Ellie Goulding, who as I understand it has made quite a name for herself in the genre of electronic dance pop, if the ~$80 ticket price is any indication. My first show was Ratt at the Tucson Convention Center. A little known band at the time called Bon Jovi opened up. I was like, "who the fuck brought a keyboardist to a metal concert?" Even back then I held capriciously hardheaded (and completely arbitrary) views on everything. Anyhow, Bon Jovi sucked so I was proved right.
