I arrived around 3:00 PM at the infamous Black Cat venue at 1811 14th St NW Washington, DC
for the sold out Alkaline Trio | mewithoutYou | The Drowning Men concert.
The show started at 8:30....so I had to wait a long time so I could get a front row spot.
I was second in line ("If you're not first, you're last" - Ricky Bobby)
there was a hardcore Alkaline Trio fan who just saw them the other night in New York.
While we waited, I met some of the funniest, craziest fans that I've ever got to share a long waiting time with. We talked music, almost got into fights with some out of towners trying to steal parking spots and made sure we got the entire front row.
This was a definitely a show that was not to be missed.....(to be continued)
