My first concert

April 14, 2015
Like thousands of others, I submitted a fifty-word story of my best concert experience to the Verizon My Rewards+ contest. Top prize? A trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the 2015 induction ceremony. The contest closed April 2, and I’ve not heard back, so I’m guessing I will not be going to Cleveland. Oh well…

Stephi’s dad drove the gaggle of hormonal junior high girls to our first concert: General Public. They played punk/ska/mod tunes from the album we had memorized. The blinding lights, the amped instruments, the sexy, sweaty lead singer. We stomped on the bleachers, begging for yet another encore. And they delivered.
