The Concert Essay

941 words - 4 pages

As we all waited in line to go into the concert there was a thrill of
excitement in the air. I was standing there with two of my friends
when we saw a few other people we knew. " Hey, come over here!" I
bellowed. Three tall gothic boys slouched over to us. As we were
talking the line started to move in an uneasy shuffle. We neared the
entrance, where a tall bouncer with a voice that rumbled like thunder
was standing. He asked for our tickets and in unison we passed them to
him. He checked our tickets, nodded a curt nod and let us through.

The only light in the room came from onstage and there were only about
20 people in the mosh pit. Surrounding the mosh pit were metal bars,
then a few steps. To the back there was a balcony curving around the
room and then under that there were all the merchandising stalls. We
wandered into the mosh pit; we were only a few metres away from the
stage. There was a hum of voices as more people filed in. After 15
minutes people were starting to get frustrated because nothing was
happening. Suddenly there was activity onstage and the lights dimmed
the first support band, Slam Cartel came on. The mosh pit went wild,
jumping, pushing and head-banging. In all this chaos I suddenly felt
out of breath, we all clambered out of the pit and onto the steps.

One of my friends kept asking me if I was ok and I said that I felt
really out of breath and had a sharp pain in my chest. We came to the
conclusion that I had probably cracked a rib. Surprisingly it didn't
actually hurt that much! By this time Slam Cartel had finished their
set.

After a few minutes we went over to merchandising stand and Slam
Cartel were all standing there and talking. We went over to them and
we got their autographs and I got a hug from the lead singer and a
cheek-to-cheek kiss from the guitarist! When we were standing there
talking to them the second support band, Elviss came on. None of us
liked them so we just stayed where we were! Eventually Elviss were
bottled offstage. The bassist in Elviss came over to us and because my
friend fancied him we got his autograph as well. No one wanted it
though.
