Red, White and OMG

22 Jun

Saturday, June 20th: Red, White and Boom 2009 in Kansas City

1:15 pm: Standing in a mile long line with what I believe may have been the entire population of 12-17 year olds in the KC Metro area.


1:32 pm: Starts to sprinkle. Laugh at the crazy mom in front of us fighting with the security guard about bringing her umbrella and backpack into the venue.

1:47 pm: Witness what is quite possibly the worst hair ever. Fried bleach blond on top and tar black on bottom.

2:00 pm: Gates open and we hear this gem of a quote from a 14 year old girl in her homemade glitter shirt, “If it’s moving fast enough, water can cut you!”

2:14 pm: Find spot on hill to sit for the afternoon of concerts.


2:15 pm: Sky opens up. Pat myself on the back for not wearing a white shirt.


3:40 pm: Still raining. Realize I have no idea who any of the first three acts are.

4:36 pm: What is with neon colored outfits? I’m pretty sure no one looks cute in neon pink booty shorts and an electric blue tank top.

5:03 pm: Rain stops and sun comes out! Decide it was real silly to do my hair. Now I just look like a drowned rat.


5:31 pm: Why is Ashley Tisdale here and can you really call her the host of the event if she is only on stage for two seconds?



5:53 pm: “There are a lot of kids here. So this song is about….. ice cream. Ice cream so good you want to spank it.” ~ Matt in reference to his song “Come On Get Higher”

6:15 pm: Sky opens up again.

7:00 pm: Rain stops but the last storm has guaranteed that we will never quite dry out for the rest of the night.

7:10 pm: Take a glorious nap during some random performance. Honestly, we only went for two people and really didn’t know anyone else.

7:28 pm: White men rapping. I’m sorry. I can’t take you seriously.

8:45 pm: Purchase the most expensive margarita ever. But damn was it good.



9:51 pm: DAVID COOK! This, my friends, is my future husband. He just doesn’t know it yet. I have now regressed to acting like a screaming, prepubescent girl.

I know, I know, the picture is terrible. Call it artsy. Call it blurry. Call it whatever because it’s DAVID COOK!


11:12 pm: Firework show and the great search for the car.

11:23  pm: Sonic for dinner. Funny how $5 at Sonic buys me a hamburger, tater tots and drink while the same amount buys me a warm pretzel and a thimble of cheese at the concert.

1:20 am: Realize that I am old while complaining about being sore from sitting on the ground all day.
