I don’t know about any of you, but over the years of attending concerts, I’ve developed a ritual of sorts.
I take off work early so I can go home get ready. I put on albums of whoever I’m going to see and listen over and over until it finally hits me: “OMG! I’M GONNA BE IN THE SAME ROOM/PROXIMITY AS _____!!! *fangirls*” If it’s a metal show, I paint my eyes with dark shadow and ruby red on my lips. I throw on an appropriate black band tee, grab cash for a new tee at the schwag table, and blast music on the drive to the venue.
I’m bringing a new friend with me to see Ghost tonight in St. Louis at The Pageant. She’s a Metal Virgin. I hope she has as much fun as I normally do!
If you haven’t seen Ghost yet, you must! They sound of the clergy practically screams revivalist 70’s Heavy Metal.
