The show started at 7. Warning sign #1 that you are getting old: you think that a show starting at 7 will be over around 9, which is plenty of time to go home and be in bed so you can get up for work. And in my case, I actually get up and ride my horse before that.
Marquee Theater is general admission, so except for the stage, the place looks like a small dark warehouse, which is cool, but there's no actually seating. So Tara and I are sitting around on the cement floor drinking cherry Stoli and soda, and noticing that the average age of everyone else is 19. Warning sign number 2 that you are getting old: you no longer understand how "kids dress these days", Or as Tara calls it. "hobo chic".
Sign #3 that you are getting old: you actually expect the show to start at 7 because that's what the ticket says. Silly. Young whipper snappers do not need to be in bed at a reasonable time! They are now on summer break. So, the opening act came on after 8:30, maybe even pushing 9. I was ready to go to sleep.
Sign #4 that you are getting old: you forget how loud amplifiers are. My first thought was that I should have brought ear plugs. Now I did see some young people wearing ear plugs, so there. Maybe I'm not granny aged, yet.
I loved every minute of their performance. I have to say that all of the amps tend to distort the sound and since I do have some back ground in music, it does bug me a little because I really like how the music and singing compliment each other. But that's not a getting old thing. That's a music snob thing.
We had a lot of fun and I'm so glad we went, despite how sleepy I was at worl all day. I didn't end up getting myself a shirt, even though I said I would. Boo.

I will even be able to take decent pictures! I had a Target gift card, so I got myself a new toy.
Now I won't have to rely on my crappy cell camera anymore! The battery is charging right now. I'm off to finish my laundry and get in bed. I have a busy weekend ahead of me!
