hootie in concert

So, me and a few friends have tickets to go see Hootie and the Blowfish on Friday night at the Bi-Lo Center and I’m getting pretty excited. Oddly enough, Friday will mark five years exactly since the last time that I saw them live @ Center City Fest in Charlotte. I went and dug up the story from my old LiveJournal days:

2001.04.28 @ 20:31
Last night was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. Practically dead center, less than 10 feet away from the stage (only a few feet from the safety rail) and Hootie and the Blowfish were on stage. One word. WOW! H&BF put on a really awesome show. They rocked Center CityFest in Charlotte. It was over around 12:30 last night and there is still a slight ringing in my ears now. My hall mate Nick has turned out to be a party animal. Who knew he could break it down like he did last night? Anyway, Hootie and the gang performed all the great ones. Time, Tuckerstown, Hold M Hand, Let Her Cry, and my personal fav Only Wanna Be With You. I think the best performance as far as crowd enjoyment goes was Runnin’ From an Angel. If you like Hootie you should definitely see them live sometime.

It’s really funny to go back and read some of that old stuff. I was so young and immature. Not that I’m much different now – just old and immature I guess.
