A Night at the Rave

As you know, last night I attended a Buckcherry and Chevelle concert. They played at the Rave in Milwaukee. It was my first time at this venue. The Rave is a pretty, older building with different floors with different concerts. I liked the smaller atmosphere of the place as well.
I went with my usual concert buddy (who is also my hubby's aunt), Beth, and our friend, Ginny. It is awesome that Beth loves to go to concerts as much as I do! She is always willing to go with me. Tonight she was extra excited, because she bought a special ticket to have a meet and greet with her favorite band, Buckcherry. The band signed a few items for her, chatted with her a bit, and took their picture with her (see below). She was beyond excited! I was giddy for her, too!

After Beth went to her meet and greet, we secured our positions near the front of the stage. I got to meet Buckcherry's drummer, Xavier, as he was hanging out before the show. Beth remembers everyone, and we buddied up with two members of the band, Silvergun, (she remembered we saw these guys open for Buckcherry the last time we saw them). They were hanging by the stage and gave us the scoop on the bands. Friendly guys. A band called Pop Evil played, then it was time for the bands we came to see.
Chevelle played most of their hits and a new song. We were near the bass speakers, and we could feel every beat reverberate in our body! Chevelle sounded great. My fave song of the night was "Send the Pain Below."

Next was Buckcherry. We were in front row to the left of the stage so enjoyed experiencing the band so close. Colorfully tattooed lead singer, Josh Todd, was energetic and raunchy as usual.PhotobucketPhotobucket We love when he dances, too. My fave songs were "Broken Glass" and "Everything." You can hear a short clip of "Everything" from the concert below.

Another awesome concert night. Next one: 2 1/2 weeks!

So glad you had a good time! And(ok here's the wise old crone coming out) do be careful of your ears.

PJ-Thanks!
Sherrie- I try!
Bish- That is a valid concern. I wished I had brought ear plugs when I saw the speakers were a foot in front of us!
