When I was a kid I was always grounded. I finally got to see my first concert was when I was 19. I went to see the Hip with my boyfriend (Curtis). It was his first concert as well. We get to an out door conert in Toronto and Curtis was only 18 he could not get into the beer tent. That was ok we were already feeling pretty good. We decided that we were going to stand infront of the stage until the hip came on, that way we would have the best spot. Well when the Hip came on it was wild. We got crushed and it was hot. realy hot. People crowd surfing. We had to keep are arms up at all times or else people would fall on our heads. Finaly we panic and we try to get to the back. It was imposible. thousands of people pushing towords you and two people pushing back. I kept standing on Curtis's feet just to get my head above people to breath, it was so hot. Finally Gordi started to talk to the crowd. Telling people just to go with it or something along those lines but whatever everything just relaxed, and we just turned around and started watching the band. It was great. First concert, yes we were idoits. I married Curtis and we have seen the Hip 19 times. We love it.
