    Without warning, the lights went dark. This was the moment I had been waiting for. My adrenaline went through the roof. 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.

    On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, I attended a musical concert. This was the first time I had ever been to a concert and did not play. The concert was not what I expected. I assumed I was going to a symphony that featured a soloist clarinet; however, upon arrival I quickly realized that my previous assumptions were false. My experience was sort of a rollercoaster. One minute I was down and almost asleep; next I was laughing; then I was up and intrigued. The first song played was from a genre that I

  • Foo Fighters Concert Report

The crowd, the band, the instruments, the sounds, the stage, the lighting and the amazing balance of hard rock melodies and slow-tempo songs created a night to remember.

This concert was held at Binghamton University in the events center, and sold out almost a month in advance of the show, so being able to attend a performance of this magnitude was surely an experience I will cherish. Advertised both by the artist himself and on multiple programs online, these programs were very minimal in information provided
