How do you react when you hear those opening notes

#62401 2 years, 11 months ago
I get so excited leading up to a show. Once the band comes on, I enjoy stretching a bit while they are tuning / warming up. Once I recognize the opening song, all the pent up energy pours out of me and I explode in dance. I suppose it's a ritual at this point.

May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

Yesterday I was just thinking about this. How excited I am to just hear those first notes being noodled around with. I too like to stretch out a bit. Then the first guitar lick and the crash of the symbols.. and I dont know what happens then? I may lose complete track of physical self.. and merge into some other plane of consciousness. Or maybe 2 at the same time. (depending on how much fun im having)
Im only hitting the red rocks shows and the madison show later in the fall. All week I have been anticipating this "moment" in time. Ive been having a lot of trouble living in the now, knowing that this feeling is so close!! Listening to some recordings I get these HUGE bursts of energy and excitement.. I can barely contain myself! I LOVE THIS BAND!!! <33<333
In the end theres just a song.. Its cryin' down the wind!

Usually a puff or 2 when the lights go out depending how sketchy it is, then I let the music take over...

Maybe since they expect it all with the lights off.... I always stay sitting when everyone stands and then duck and cup my hand from the flame, always bring a 1 hitter. Then inbetween songs or whenever I'll sit down again real quick for another puff. if its GA I usually just neal for a sec, enless its not sketchy but I always have the 1 hitter and cup with my hand - I never light a joint or anything.

I just start smiling. Big ol grin comes across my face, and I melt into it.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

Kinda like i just won the musical lottery!!!! It is complete and utter euphoria for me. no concert will ever give me that/this feeling.
Time there was and plenty, but from that cup no more

I love the noodling too, teasing stuff wondering if you might pop up in the show.

I act like a kid that just made it to Disneyland. I strechout. I call out the song real loud that I think they might open with. I give high fives around and tell people to enjoy the show. Best feeling ever
And I'm going to sit right here until I die
