Back in the pit, oh yeah

This weekend we went to the Fratellis concert. The concert was in a theatre called the Ambassador Theatre which, besides the balcony, was standing room only. Which means at my age, I was back in the pit. I have been in 2 pits before, one at the Guns n Roses concert and another at the 311 concert. I was in high school for GnR and in college for 311. Both times, well under the age limit of pit-going.

There were kids in there who were half my age - yes, half (ugh - I'm going to throw up). They probably thought we were narcs. Look to the left, right - "does that kid have 15 year old shiny metal braces???"
But any of you who know how I love to bounce, this was the best place to do so! The Fratellis have the most bouncy music around. Chances are if you think you don't know them, you probably do once you hear a song or two. I think one of their songs was on an iTunes commercial and definitely in the movie Run Fat Boy Run.

I've attached a few pics and even a video taken at the concert that was SO FUN!! Talk about a workout. If the Wii had a game called the Fratellis concert, I would look like one of those girls on the shows on the CW.

Anywho, here you go:

This is the opening band: The Flaws. Apparently they are a well known Dublin band and have even made it onto the iTunes list. Not too shabby!

This is my attempt at taking a picture of us myself (at arms length):

And this is Derek. He wins:

Shot of the Fratellis. The lead singer is the one on the right. I think it's interesting that he doesn't set up in the middle - maybe he actually wants attention on everyone. Awww...shucks.

The lead singer. Shirt makes sense as I've been saying that a few songs remind me of the Beatles.

Not a bad shot, if I say so myself:

Once I can figure out this blogging website, I'll post a video...
