A Concert Atmosphere
One thing I like to talk about is finding music the touches your heart and soul. What better way to really experience music than going to a concert?? If you really want to experience music at the fullest, you must, I repeat, you must attend a concert of your favorite singer or band.
We all know how great music is and how great it makes us feel. Now take that feeling and multiply it times 1000! That’s how it is when you attend a concert. If you’ve never been to a live music event, you need to stop what you’re doing and buy a concert ticket right now! You absolutely need to go to a concert this year. DO NOT WAIT ANY LONGER!
I was blown away by my first few concerts. One of the first bands I saw in concert was Pierce the Veil. Pierce the Veil just so happens to be one of my favorite bands so it was only fitting for it to be the first live event I went to. We had to drive 2.5 hours to the venue, but it was more than worth the long drive. The concert was around the time I had broken my leg in a freak accident at my summer job. I broke my leg in July of 2010 and the concert was in January of 2011. So 6 months after breaking my leg pretty badly, I decided to go to a concert. I couldn’t even run at the time, but I knew I had to be there.

When we showed up to the venue, we were blown away by how small it was. This made for an awesome music experience! We didn’t have to worry about getting close to the stage or if we would be able to see the venue at all. Pierce the Veil had just started getting big, so a small venue was appropriate. It was perfect for my first concert experience.
And of course, they put on an AMAZING show! Mike Fuentes, the drummer, put on an incredible display of drumming skills! This certainly solidified my view of Pierce the Veil being one of my favorite bands, ‘til this day. There performance couldn’t have been any better. Then, to top it all off, we got to meet the band after the show.
Talking to and shaking hands with Pierce the Veil was the cherry on top. They were such cool guys and I even got them to sign a poster and a shirt I had. The shirt I had was brand new and I’ve never worn it since. I even framed the poster! I remember telling Mike that I had broken my leg, but I needed to come watch them live in concert. He was impressed by my dedication.
Take a listen/look at their their music video for Bulls in the Bronx. It’s even more amazing live.
In total, I’ve been to at least 4 Pierce the Veil concerts and they always put on a great show. One of my buddies, who went with me, also fell in love with Pierce the Veil. They’re a rock band and can be a little hardcore, but even my buddy was into their performance. He always jokes with me about how I turned a businessman like him into a hardcore, punk rock fan. It’s even funnier if you met my buddy, in person. He’s definitely more professional than me, but it works well for him. He runs a very successful roofing company in the Topeka, Kansas area. If you’re interested, you can check out my friend, the roofing contractor, if you’re ever in the Topeka area. He’s a great guy and great company to work with.
This experience, along with many, many more has really made me fall in love with concerts. I’ve attended a ton of other badass concerts, but I always remember that first experience of Pierce the Veil rocking out on stage only a few feet away from me. If I could give you any sound advice, it would be to hurry up and attend a live music performance of your favorite musician(s). I guarantee it will blow you away.
