I Can't Believe it Actually Happened

When I was 12 years old I heard the greatest band of all time. They were called The Presidents of the United States of America. They introduced me to rock music. 15 years later, no one really listens to them anymore..except nerds, and still they continue to rock. I always wanted to see them live, and never did for one reason or another and began to think I never would because they had no reason to tour.

Until now. The Presidents recently released a new album (which of course rocks your socks off) and are on tour. Last night I went to see them. I had been waiting 15 years for that to happen. Not only did I go to the show, I was given a photo pass, and was the only audience member who was allowed to have a camera. At all.

It was almost too much. My favorite band, and I'm the only one allowed to take photos. It was insane, and so was I. According to my friend Ashley and brother Sam who went with me, I was like a 12 year old girl at an N'Sync concert. And I'm fine with that.

So here you go....photos from the first three songs of the show (the standard professional rock concert limit). Photos of my favorite band ever. Photos of a dream I lived. (Interestingly enough, this also marks my 100th post in this blog.)
