Late last year, I became aware that Joan Jett and
the Blackhearts would be playing at a nearby
casino. I was so excited until I saw the ticket
prices. OUCH! So I went on with my life, without
getting to hear Cherry Bomb or I Love Rock and
Roll live. As the Beatles say...La la la Life goes
But this year my boss helped me score some free
passes to the Wildflower! Festival here in Richardson.
She's the best! I had never been and I had no idea
one night would hold so much good music!! Joan
Jett and the Blackhearts were on the headliners
stage!! So I got to hear all my favorites!! It was
fantastic. I must admit this festival is somewhat
chaotic and just getting down to the stage took
a lot of leg muscle and about 40 minutes.
So worth it!
We had a blast!
My feet have never hurt so bad in my life.
It was rad.
The blonde boy had mentioned we might also get
to watch The Wallflowers. You guys...it was so good.
I couldn't even believe how good it was. I walked
up to a much smaller stage that was so much easier
to get to, we had gotten ourselves an incredibly
good spot right up front. I was excited to hear One
Headlight and go on with my life. They sang song
after song that I actually knew and didn't realize
was one of theirs, they were so in tune with one
another. I have never been so close at a concert
that I could see them signaling back and forth,
laughing at themselves and having a genuinely
good time. By the time we walked away, sore
feet and all, I was the happiest. I had such
an amazing time. Standing hand in hand with
my favorite guy and for just a moment, living
in the 90's and seeing how truly talented and
underrated The Wallflowers really are!
Go here to see The Wallflowers video I posted if it
doesn't show up below and you want to see!
We had such a good time! Nights like these make me
feel like the luckiest girl in the world!
