Blog Party

I always thought concerts were better with best friends rather than boyfriends. A group of girls, not afraid to get silly. There would be lots of dancing and fun, screaming and laughing in a way men never seem to understand.

So you can imagine my apprehension last night when I went to NYC to see my favorite English Indie band, Bloc Party with my boyfriend.

He bought the tickets. He drove. He searched for parking in the crazy streets, and I just kept my fingers crossed that the evening would be a success sans best-girl-friend.

And after a few hours of bouncing and ponging with the crowd. After throwing my arms up and holding my too-long damp hair on top of my head to cool off from the amazing show, I looked around and realized it was...
The. Best. Show. I'd. Ever. Been .To.

Maybe it was the band.

Or maybe... it was the fact I realized the best accessory for a good time at the rock show isn't necessarily a girl-best-friend.

It's a freedom you can only find when you realize you're completely comfortable in your surroundings, and the person you're with. Boyfriend, or not.

The inspiration for this Blog Party found here.

Are guys good for concerts or should you just bring the girls?
