There’s nothing more thrilling than attending a live music performance. The rush that comes from such music experiences, whereby one is able to catch the performance of a favorite music performer or a band, is often too indescribable! A recent article that appeared in www.buzzfeed.com took an up close and personal view at how one should prepare for such events. Given below is a concise version, dedicated to die-hard music fans who do not have the patience and the time to read full-blown articles! By just following the brief outline of the steps given below, you can ensure a fantastic time at the concert, be it an all-out rock performance or even a snazzy classical orchestra recital.
Step Number 1: It’s Time To Decide- Do You Want To Go Alone, or With Company?
Ok, there’s nothing wrong in being the lone wolf! Many people love the idea of attending rock concerts by themselves. It gives them the chance to meet new people, catch new experiences and so on. Concert goers who attend music performances by themselves have a few other advantages as well. Imagine a tear-jerking song being played on stage, one that is guaranteed to even make grown men weep! A lone attendee needn’t become self-conscious while a few tears roll down, which is something that’s not possible if you are attending with friends. However, a word of advice: If you are from out of town, or visiting the location for the first time, it might be prudent to get someone to tag along!
Step Number 2: Catch The Best Spot!
Get to the venue as early as possible, because all the good seats/spots tend to get filled up very fast, especially if the performer is famous. Don’t concentrate on finding a spot right at the front. Instead, pick a spot that offers a good vantage point to see the performance, without it being too close to the sound speakers. Trust us, it could get very uncomfortable if you are going to stand near the sound system all night long! And, you could end up deaf, as well!
Step Number 3: Dress Up In Style!
Each music performance has its own dress-code. If you are going to a classical music performance, then, it’s most likely a black-tie affair, unless of course you are off to your kid’s musical recital, in which case a casual set of clothes will be more than enough. However, a pop concert, is an entirely different matter! You need to dress right. The clothes you wear have to be trendy, comfortable and smart. Make sure you wear something that has pockets with zippers, as this will ensure that your money and keys, remain safe.
Step Number 4: Drink Wisely!
Concerts are a great place to get mingle and have fun. Often, a glass or two of alcohol is a norm, as it enables one to get loose and comfortable. However, be sure not to get drunk. Apart from missing the fine aspects of the performance, you could get into a world of trouble. Fights between drunks are one of the main causes for ruckus at a concert.
So, what are you waiting for? Have fun and enjoy yourself!
