Tickets - not the kind from the City of Atlanta Police or Parking that we all have nightmares about receiving! I mean tickets to concerts and events...love those! Before high school, I hadn't ever really gone to a concert, but then my friend Erin convinced me to attend an Indie band's show at The Masquerade. It was simply amazing and I was hooked.

My friend, Alison, and I at the Drake  concert on May 20

Since then, I've probably attended almost 50 concerts and shows in Atlanta for artists like Drake, Nicki Minaj, Hellogoodbye, Minus the Bear, J. Cole, Deadmau5, Girl Talk, Circa Survive, Wale, Lil' Wayne, Trey Songz, The Rocket Summer, Bruno Mars, and more! It's one thing to go crazy listening to your favorite artist in the car or on your iPod while working out, and it's a completely different experience to witness and engage in a live performance.

If you've never been to a concert or you just haven't been in a while, summer is the perfect time! The best part is...most events have cheap tickets (which are what I usually get). You won't be able to touch the performer (which made me regret buying cheap Drake tickets), but you will still have a wonderful time with other people who are also there for a great time!

 I've kept all of the tickets for shows I've attended in a box for physical memories. After I graduate, I plan to create a monstrous collage of physical memories that will be framed and will go in my apartment. Fun idea!

Regardless of the kind of music you like, there is a concert for you to attend this summer! (I've bolded some of my favorite options) Enjoy!

  1. hmmmm. . . was it erin mcafee or erin evans that took you to your first concert?? :)
    glad that you enjoyed it and have collected all your tickets. cool idea!

  2. this is Debbie, not Carson! i'm not sure how but when I clicked "Publish" it popped up as Carson. Guess this is somehow in her name although I logged in. Go figure!

    hey . . . i know you'll take lots of pictures but you should start that thing called "Pic of the day" and show a picture of the day that sorta sums up the day. someone I know did it for the entire year and named it something clever. just an idea to share. love ya!
