Hi everyone! Miss Cake reminded me yesterday that I didn’t post a weekly welcome thread for newbees. I see we have some first time posters, so I wanted to start a new welcome thread. If you are new, please tell us who you are and a little something about yourself. Oldbees, please share too so that newbees can get to know you.
This week’s question: What was the first concert you ever attended?
I’ll start. I’m Mrs. DG. I’ve been here for over a year and got married in July to my amazing spouse. We’ve got a Bernese Mountain Dog and Mr. DG is obsessed with nice kitchenware!
My first concert was The Beach Boys, Three Dog Night and the Greg Kihn Band when I was a little kid at the riverbottoms in my town. I don’t know why it was such a big deal to me, considering that all those bands were really irrelevant by the time I saw them… but I still felt really cool as a 13 year old going to a concert with my friends! Tell me your first concert was WAY cooler than mine!

Hi! I’m Amy and I’ve been lurking around the boards for a few months. I’m from Wisconsin and having a formal wedding in Milwaukee next year. So nice to “meet” all of you–the hive is awesome. 🙂
First concert…Everclear with Soul Coughing and DJ Scribble as the opening acts when I was a sophomore in high school. I remember they were giving out free CDs at the concert for a new rapper…Eminem! Haha.

Aloha! I’m Alisha and I’ve been reading weddingbee for months but only became a member a few weeks ago! We’re not engaged yet, but Loverboy and I regularly talk wedding and are prepared for it … just waiting for some life things to get out of the way to make it all possible (and get the money together for a ring)!
My first concert was Warped Tour in 2002! I went with a group of friends and forgot my ticket … instead of driving the hour back home and then the hour back to retrieve said ticket I swindled my way in by selling CDs for a marketer … it was the most fun I’ve had getting into a concert. Ever.

Hi, I’m Shannon! I got enagaged July 25th and found this website about a week ago. My love and I plan on getting married May 21, 2011 on Cape Cod Ma (North Truro, hopefully). I have a 7yo daughter who is madly in love with her future step-dad and we have two crazy terriers named Boomer (Jack Russell) and Mr. Brian Bubblegums (Taco Terrier).
First concert was Barry Manilow–with my parents when I was 7yo and Rick Springfield–with a friend when I was in 6th grade. Yes, I am old 😉

Welcome to all the Newbees! My name is Jessie and I’ve been around the Hive for almost a year. I got married in May to the coolest guy around. We have two crazy cats and are huge football and TV fans.
My first concert, like many of you others, was New Kids on the Block. I was TOTALLY obsessed and we actually slept outside, waiting in line for tickets.

Hello new bees! I’m Heather, gettting married in 5 glorious days 😉 We’re marrying in Vegas with some close friends and family, honeymooning there for the week, and then returning back home to WA for the reception on the 12th. I am so ready for it to be over tho–I’m on craft/wedding project overload right now and I just am ready to be married!
My first BIG concert was… don’t laugh… Hanson. I was 13. That’s my only excuse at the moment. I kind of liked them at the time and for some reason my parents got my tickets to see them so… whatever I went! 😛 In middle school and high school I loved going to local concerts, lots of punk and ska type bands. Went to lots of Warped Tours too.

My first concert was Kriss Kross. You remember, those kid rappers that wore their clothes backwards? My mom let us wear our clothes backwards to the show and we were beyond excited!
My parents could not afford tickets to NKOTB when we were kids. My sister and I made up for it and saw them last year at Madison Square Garden :o)

Hi there my name is miss goodart. I have been on here for a few weeks now. I technically don’t have a ring yet but we already booked out reception site. We should be getting engaged some time in October is my guess. I want a suprise but my parents have a diamond that I want to use in my engagment ring so I have to wait till my mom brings it at the end of septmeber and then we will look for rings. I just bought my first house this summer and BF will move in when we get married.

@ hotchildinthecity: Kriss Kross pretty much ruled when I was little, LOL! I think I even wore my pants backwards a few times!

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, I’ve been around the hive for about 9 months now. I got married in June but can’t curb my addiction for this site. 🙂 my first concert was also New Kids on the Block, I was about 7 or 8 years old and I went with my mom and a couple friends to see them at Arco Arena in Sacramento, we had total nose bleed seats! I saw them again last October with my friend and again this past July!
