Blink 182… but I was with my older brother… so does that still count? lol  It was in 2000 I think, when I was 13.

Dave Matthews Band in I think 1997?  I’m pretty sure the t-shirt is still at my mom’s!  I would have been 13.  We went with a friend’s mom who sat in a seat somewhere and we sat on the “floor”.

A free Unwritten Law concert at the nearby college. I was only in high school (2002) so I felt sooo cool for 1) going to my first concert alone and 2) being on a college campus. LOL. I was such a dork.

Haha, White Stripes at a free summer concert series when I was maybe 15. The crowd was smoking pot, my friend got dragged into a mosh pit…We all piled into my dad’s car afterward wide-eyed and cracking up.

the MTV band 2+gether opened for Brian McKnight at Kings Island [an amusement park here in Ohio] .. it was a bunch of girls from HS and one of their parents .. we were 13 .. the first concert I ever went to completely without parents was REO Speedwagon at the Belterra Casino when I was 24 [complete in 80’s attire haha] …

my parents took me to my first ever concert [RUSH] when I was in the 5th grade.. it was on my birthday! and I always went to concerts with them because we all enjoyed the same bands haha

Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake – Either 2001 or 2002 (which would have made me 15 or 16). We had front row seats and Christina totally pointed and smiled at me when I sang along to her version of “At Last”. Guess most of the concert goers didn’t know that song.
