I went to my first rock concert last night. My friend (who I’ve known since junior high) had an extra ticket to see New Found Glory at the Avalon and invited me to go.
The music was not as deafeningly loud as I thought concerts were supposed to be, but there was definitely a lot of energy in the place. There were a lot of people in the mosh pit who started jumping around and pushed themselves into people with reckless abandon. I’m sure it’s all part of the concert experience, but I didn’t really like getting pushed around and getting other people’s beer on my shirt.
Besides the crazy people, the concert was great. I really like New Found Glory; they put on a great show. But at my next concert, I probably won’t stand in the mosh pit.
