Rocker Girl @ Heart!

I have always been a huge music fanatic. My mom has a good story of me impressing my kindergarten teacher with my dancing skills. So when I say I have always been a music fanatic... what I mean to say is I came out of the womb tapping my toes to the beat of some pretty awesome music.

I guess that is what happens when you are the prodigy of the MTV era.

So I owe some of my family members for my music tastes... my mother being the largest influence. I always scored pretty high with the cool kids when I told them that MY Mom was a frequent to the Gorge at George and other venues to see things like Warped Tour & OzzFest.

So... This brings me to the REAL reason I am posting this. I have a list of a few bands out there that I would give just about anything to see in concert.

My list includes:

  • Aerosmith
  • AC/DC
  • Velvet Revolver
  • Guns N Roses (seen, Idaho Center 2004)
  • Eric Clapton
  • Pink Floyd
  • Life House
  • Garth Brooks
  • Nickelback
  • Lonestar (seen, TRAC 2001)
Ok, now a couple of these bands I have seen already and some I wont ever be able to see. As for the others my chances of seeing them glow slimmer and slimmer as time goes on due to the fact that they only come out on tour every decade or so.

So guess who is coming to the area?! AC/DC!!! Am I absolutely stoked?! YES! Am I going to be able to go?! No! Why you ask?! Why am I going to miss the concert of the decade?! Because they are coming to Albany three days after my DUE DATE!!!! Why me?! Why is it that one of my all time favorite bands is coming out of a 7 year silence to perform a stones throw away from me and I will be in recovery mode with a newborn? Now if only I could convince them to shift their concert date a few weeks to the left... hmm... One can hope right?!

I went to a Pink Floyd impersonation concert last fall. It was an interesting experience, I have to say I never realized how odd that era was. I'm jealous that you get to see one of your favorite bands in concert. I want to see so many!!

Oh Trust me. You don't want them to shift the date to the left. By the time your that far along you won't want to go to any concert. Especially considering how much pain you are already in. If you're going to wish you might as well wish that they postpone it a few months, until you have recovered fully!
