Andrew’s 33rd Birthday

When we woke up, I wished Andrew a Happy Birthday! We went to the pool and relaxed. The sun was out and the weather was better than yesterday. It was definitely a good pool day. We stayed at the pool until 2:30pm. Then went home and got ready to head down to the Northshore.

When we arrived at the Northshore, there were people everywhere. There was a Pirate’s game today, so every restaurant was packed with people. It was going to be an hour and 15 min wait for a table. We decided to check out the bar area. We ran into his previous boss from Service link who was there with his girlfriend. They were standing at a table in the bar area. We hung out with them and had a couple drinks with them. We ordered some food so we wouldn’t have to eat at the concert. They were going to the Pirate game. We talked about Europe and their upcoming trip to Prague. They recommended this site called European Destinations to plan our next trip to Paris.

Around 10 mins to 6pm, we left the restaurant to head to Stage AE for the concert. I was so excited. As soon as we entered the venue. There is a section where you can stand in the grass, or you can go towards the front of the stage. I secured our spot close to the stage. I am all about being in the pit.

Jimmy Eat World was amazing. They played the hits I was familiar with such as “The Middle”, “Sweetness”, and “Hear You Me.” I didn’t know all the other songs. There was a clear generational divide going on at this concert. The younger crowd newly 21-22 knew every Jimmy Eat World song, even the ones that were not the hits. I was there mostly for Third Eye Blind, but it was cool to see Jimmy Eat Word live.  During Jimmy Eat World, it started to rain. I didn’t care it was so hot outside, the rain felt so good. I just embraced it.

The rain stopped in time for Third Eye Blind to come on stage. Third Eye Blind was so awesome. It was a different kind of crowd when they came on stage. It was so cool to hear “Never Let You Go”, “Jumper”, “How’s it Going to Be?” The 10-year old inside of me was alive and in love again! We made our way out of the pit and headed towards the lawn. We stood in the lawn for  “Semi-Charmed Life.” Then we made a break towards the exit. I love the nostalgia of it all. I am happy I got to check theses bands off my list of bands to see in this lifetime.
