10 Questions About…

Rock the Vote by Ann Treacy

So I had planned to see Kings of Leon on Saturday night, but they were sold out. So I looked around and saw that the Beastie Boys were playing at the Roy Wilkins. So I got tickets. What I didn’t know was that originally this show sold out in 3 minutes. I must have caught Ticketmaster at just the right time and they must have released tickets on the day of the event. (It was the Rock the Vote concert. So by the time they planned the event the big places in town were booked.)

So we got to go! The Roy Wilkins holds about 5,500 people. We were on the floor! And we got progressively closer to the stage as the bands progressed. So the video I got of Beastie Boys is better than Tenacious D. That being said, it’s still not the highest quality.

The Roy Wilkins is an amazing place to see bands because it is so small.

All of the bands were great –t he highlights were the Under Pressure cover by Ban Harper and Tenacious D and Sabotage by Beastie Boys – or maybe No Sleep Til Brooklyn. What was great was they prefaced the song by saying if you know who Rod Carew is, you’ll like the next song – making us old guys feel cool.

After the concert we went to a party and that was fun too.

And if you want to see more, here’s a link to my playlist from the show:
