First up, last Wednesday night I was at Madison Square Garden. And what's not a lie is that
"She grew up in an Indiana town, had a good look'n mom never was around"
(ok that's a lie, my mom was always around)
"But she grew up tall, and she grew up right...w/'em Indiana boys on 'em Indiana nights"
(true story, they do grow up pretty tall and right in Indiana...we're cornfed and European descent, what can I say?)
I'm guessing by now you might've figured who I saw at MSG. Free Fallin'? American Girl? ummm...YES PLEASE! Tom Petty and the Eff'n Heartbreakers!!!!! (my friend just told me the other day that her boss said only white trash from the midwest like Tom Petty...fine by me, I'll be white trash and I'm completely MIDWEST if that's what it takes because that was one good concert I'll tell you what!)
Then, last Saturday, in case you missed our tweets--my friends and I headed to Prospect Park to claim our spot in line for an 8:40pm show...we're the REAL DEAL-considering we were there to be in line at 3:30pm!
And this is the only documentation of an outfit I have in over one week's time...and eeek! That's No Outfit! That's just me in my regular weekend attire these days, Cut-off shorts...
(silk dress-Urban Outfitters, DIY cut-offs-GAP, Vintage Owl Necklace-gift from Leprouse Vintage, vintage belt-Thrift Store)
But who cares about outfits when we're talking a FREE SONIC YOUTH show!!! It was pretty rad and well worth the long long wait we endured in line. We were probably about the 75th people to enter the stage area, so it was not too shabby of an idea that we parked our butts in the queue when we did.
And then last night, I rushed outta work-hit the subways-found myself somewhere in the middle of Brooklyn to take in a night of some of hip-hop's finest (and I'll admit, I'm such a white girl-laugh now, but least I wasn't called "Snowflake" like Mel was! I'm sorry but it was pretty funny!)
Another FREE concert--I'm so there! And who wouldn't want to go to this if given the opportunity? I got to see Slick Rick (evidence shown above--I bypassed the security so cunningly as I snuck my camera into the "no cameras allowed" concert-yeah!)
And NAUGHTY BY NATURE!!!!!
And when the night was goin' good...they brought out a "special treat" for us:
But girls...get ready for this one:
Are you ready....ready for this fierce little duo (because sadly, breaks my heart...but they're missing the cool one-Spinderella)? SALT N PEPA!!!!!!!!!!
So tell me now who wouldn't seize this opportunity to see this show?
So yeah....I've been taking in the concerts, soaking up what it is to live in NYC during the summertime. It's one fine place to live, I'll tell you that much....FREE CONCERTS GALORE-and those that aren't free are pretty bigtime dudes in the music industry, and well worth every penny! So while I merely wish to claim, "I'm with the Band" (sometimes Pamela Des Barres style), I can really just tell you I'm watching the band. And I'm rather quite liking the view!
Outfit posts to resume shortly....like when summertime is over and my social agenda sucks.
