I think my last concert was Mötley Crüe’s Theatre of Pain. I won’t even give you a date; it was that long ago. I was a teen head-banger.
The name of the band itself was scary sounding. They have full on makeup and tattoos up the wazoo. I heard some of their music and I thought I must be old because I don’t understand a word they are singing!
On the night of the concert, I had nothing cool to wear. I had to borrow my daughter’s BOTDF t-shirt. I tried to be cool but totally felt like a parent.
The opening bands were The Relapse Symphony and Farewell, My Love. Now these bands rocked. They kicked ass. They were hot! I was totally fan-girling. I felt like a teenager instead of a mom. I was head banging and forgot I had a kid with me! Oops.
And when BOTDF finally came on, I was impressed. The music was good. They were entertaining. They had huge fans blowing fake blood bubbles on the people. The lead singer came down to where we were standing…with a chain saw! It could have been real or a prop, I can’t say for sure but I do know it was sick!
Since I hadn’t been at a concert in a long time, this made me miss being at a live rock show. BOTDF is no Mötley Crüe but it sure was fun. I have the live rock concert bug again and I am going to this year’s WARPED Tour. Thanks to my 12 year old daughter, I feel like the coolest mom out there on the tween rock scene.
