So I mentioned (in my long list of excuses as to why I don't ever update)going to a Journey tribute band concert. The band? Separate Ways. Their amazingness rating? 11 out of 10. Some of you might be thinking, "What about real Journey?" Don't worry. NO ONE could surpass real Journey. I'm just saying, as cover bands go, this was the creme de la creme.
Just look at that poster. I mean, how could you not want to attend that concert? The best part was that they sounded almost exactly like Journey. It was life changing to be there with hundreds of other people singing the words to every song played like there was no tomorrow. You know they loved Journey like you do because who would go to a cover band concert if they didn't? Whitney and I just rocked our little hearts out to say the least.
Please notice the crazy long haired bassist. He jammed like none other and his hair was always blowing in the air conditioner wind. It was awesome. Also acknowledge the rockin' guitarist. The unsung hero of the night in my opinion. The bassist obviously catches your attention, as does the lead singer, but this dude? Humbly rocking out. Loved him.
Now, after reading that poster some of you might be thinking that the lead singer looks a little creepy. In regards to that photo, I have to agree with you. He does. However, in person he was kinda of hot. Like, he doesn't really look like that. It's weird. This is him below.
We sort of fell in love with him a little bit...
Another thig that I found to be super fun was the fact that there were people from all walks of life there. Young, old, fat, think, white, black and every shade in between. The people watching was supreme. For instance, the couple below (look to the right of Whitney). These "nifty" fifty year olds were ALL up in each other's business. They were way in love. It was actually pretty cute. I bet they did this to the real journey when they were like my age. Tender, I know.
Here is some video from the concert. They are just clips because I was saving up camera to record all of "Don't Stop Believing." I did it too. It was amazing. It had shots of the crowd, of me and Whit. It was perfect. And then I accidentally deleted it and didn't know how to recover it. Sadness, I know. But this will just have to do.
Okay, one last photo. It pretty much sums up how excited I was too be there. Don't judge me for being so happy, okay?
