This is not going to be post about writing, so be warned. It is a post about going outside what is expected of you, doing something different, living a little.
Some of you may know that I had KISS concert tickets (my Facebook friends have already seen the pics), I was a little dubious--unsure about what the KISS Army would be like, how loud the music would be, etc. You see, KISS is just a tad outside my normal taste in music (which runs more singer-songwriter rock, pop). But it was AWESOME. Yes, it was loud (I did don my ear plugs), and I didn't know all the songs--but I knew most of the songs in the encore and could sing along.
I had to get a little face paint before the show...not sure KISS is changing their look to a nautical style any time soon, but don't you think it worked for me?
The stage show was amazing--pyrotechnics, video, flashing lights, smoke, you name it. It rocked. If know you me at all, you can probably imagine the reactions most of my friends have had when I mentioned we were going. And yes, I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
In a couple of weeks, we're seeing America. My all-time favorite band. I won't be painting my face, but I will be singing along to all the songs.
For all you KISS fans out there, here's my favorite KISS song. Unfortunately the full orchestra was not traveling with them last night, so it didn't quite sound like this...but it was still great.
