My Son’s Very First Live Concert
From : Patrick Brooks
I love music. More importantly, I love live music. I try and make it out to a live show a few times a year. Having a family limits me on how often I can make it out but I do the best I can. I've had the privilege to pass my love of music on to my boys, Jack (13) and Jordan (10). Both of them not only love to listen to music but play piano (Jack) and piano/drums/percussion (Jordan). Jordan can't go to sleep without his iPod on. As my boys have grown, they were constantly asking me when they could go to a live show. In May 2018, after two years of my sons asking my wife and I when we would take them to a concert, we were finally able to surprise them. Editors at Irving Plaza in NYC! (This after having tickets two years earlier but because of illness in the band, was canceled) This time we were the ones that almost had to cancel this time though. Driving in from New Jersey there was a major weather front pushing through with flashflood warnings. Luckily, we made it safe and sound and their first ever live show is under their belt. With Jordan sitting on my shoulders, he had the best vantage point to take pictures. Thank you guys. What a fantastic night and memory. I have our tickets framed with your vinyl that you signed on our wall.
