What I Did Monday Night

Do you know who this is?
Does this help any? Pretty dang close, huh? :)

Maybe you know this guy? I was close enough to read his tattoos if I could keep people's elbows out of my face.

Big hint here.

This looks like My Chemical Romance! Is that correct?

Nope! Green Day!! :D

If you look carefully on the last pic you can read the name on the drum. We got right up to the rail! Very cool concert.

Oh, I am sooooooooo jealous. I LOVE Green Day, since way back.

I am positively "Green" with envy.

I took my son to see Green Day about ten years ago when he was 12 years old! We had a blast.

I grew up on "Old School" punk like The Clash and The Sex Pistols, and I appreciate what Green Day has done. I saw Gang of Four the other night, recently reunited after a long break-up. They were the quintessential post-punk early 80's Marxist/Socialist band that influenced everyone under the sun! They still have it, even though they're in their 40's like me!

Oh! NOt fair!!
I've loved them since, like, 6th grade...They were here in mid August, and I just couldn't justify the cost. But oh, I love American Idiot....

I actually took my 10-year old daughter to this one. I told her "ok, this is going to be your first concert ever, but since they're your absolute favorite band, I'm going to try and get us as close as I can." She knew we'd be in for some elbowing and pushing, and she didn't mind. I told her to hang on to the back of my little backpack and we'd just go for it whenever we could. We inched our way up there, and it was so incredible to see the look on her face (yes, she was wearing earplugs - mom's cool but not stupid! ;) )

She's been such a trooper all through this career change/back to school thing, and has done a very good job of being a responsible, helpful kid. It was the least I could do with some of my new nursing-paycheck money.

The funniest thing was when she first let me know she liked Green Day and I told her I thought I had some CDs down in the basement - she said "MOM! YOU like GREEN DAY???!!" As if I was too old to be so cool... I had to set her mind straight and let her know that not only has Green Day been around a while, but they (gasp!) didn't invent punk. hahahaha We sat for a couple hours using Rhapsody and going through all sorts of roots of punk music. Now she knows who the Clash and the Ramones and all of the others are.

There are basically two kinds of people: those for whom "punk happened," and those for whom "punk never happened."

Both groups contain some very nice people, but I have found that I generally segway better with the "punk happened" crowd.

You know this type: the night-shift nurse who is always humming "I Wanna Be Sedated" and wears an old Fugazi concert T-shirt under their scrubs.

AWESOME! I can't remember the last time I went to a concert. I think I'm overdue!
