Upon entering the venue, my senses were so overwhelmed; it was hard to figure out what to focus on first. There were people all around me – not pressed close like sardines, but close enough to smell overlapping perfumes and colognes, natural body odors and sweat. The room was hot – the poorly-working air conditioning could barely make a dent on the combination of Arizona summer heat and warm bodies packed together into a space too small for everyone to fit very comfortably. Even so, the sense of excitement was almost tangible – voices discussing the upcoming performance, pictures being taken of the empty stage, phones scrolling through social networking to see any status updates from the headlining artist himself.

...body wanted to be the person who ruined it for someone else. It was this respect that made the audience members’ connections with one another that much stronger – we were all here to listen to this wonderful man’s music and see his performance – and, of course, we were here to enjoy it.
After the show had ended, I felt slightly empty. I had waited years and months for that night, and it was over in the blink of an eye. Although I was sad that the show was over, I felt completely content. Now, when I hear their songs, I get to remember what it felt like to hear the band perform them live. I can watch the videos and try to wrap my mind around how it was real. Going to my first concert was an unparalleled experience that I will always cherish. The ambiance, the band’s performance and the unity the audience felt are unparalleled to any other experience I have ever had.

The time had finally come that I would get to see and hear my first live concert. I had never really been to a big concert that had a well-known band. A couple of weeks before the concert I got some information about it, but really didn't think much of it.

The swing and syncopation, improvisation, bent notes and modes helped to keep a great rhythm during the whole performance.... [tags: music, rhythm, instrument ]

- ... Perhaps the easiest way to not be injured at a punk show is not avoid the mosh pit at all costs. Near the sides of the walls or the back is the safest place to be (and temperature wise very cool), if one gets claustrophobic or hot easily, one would surely hate the pit. But if one is feeling adventurous then the mosh pit is the best place to start. Those who enter the pit are expected to have “Pit Etiquette” and to be respectful to other moshers. The golden rule of moshing is if a person falls IMMEDIATELY help them up, falling is very dangerous for more than the person who may get trampled.... [tags: mode paper]

Page 2 In the outdoors, you don't have electrical power so you cant plug in a amplifier. The acoustic bass is a hollowed bass to have a much louder sound than the electric bass without a amplifier. Sometimes the wholes in the bass are called F-holes because they are shaped like a F. There are also acoustic-electric basses which can be plugged into a amplifier or played and heard clearly without.... [tags: guitar, music, country]

- The Concert Experience and the Song as Oral Tradition Before the invention of written language that enabled the creation of book technology, the spoken word was the leading edge of communication. Spoken epic poetry such as the Iliad and Odyssey, the Anglo-Saxon Beowulf, and the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh was the content of the speech medium. These epics were created as spoken pieces, and because listeners lacked an alphabet to commodify them (separate them from their performance), the tales had to be heard and experienced first-hand....

- CONCERT REPORT #2 Beatles Z320 For my second concert report I thought that I would write about my only experience hearing songs of the Beatles live. The Rib America Festival was hosted by The Beatles Live Repertoire. The group dressed exactly like the Beatles, even had the same names, John, Paul, George, and Ringo. I had never heard any Beatles songs live before, so that was enough to get me off my butt. Not to mention, it was free entertainment, not a bad time at all. So the show starts, and I’m not sure what to expect.... [tags: essays research papers]
