Foster the People

Remember when I said I intended to work my butt off during my summer semester? Well, I also intend to play just as hard  and a concert to see one of my favorite bands seemed like a good way to get things started. I had Friday off from school, which is a rarity so I decided to take full advantage of it. Husband snagged us amazing seats to see Foster the People as a early birthday present to me. The only thing left to do was to book a flight. Using our rewards points, my round trip flight was completely free. I was so excited because not only do I love Foster the People, but this was my first concert.


The concert was held at the Boston House of Blues. There was so much musical atmosphere in this iconic venue. Husband and I knew that the venue had a restaurant and arrived early to grab some beers before the show. When we got there we found out that eating at the restaurant guaranteed you early entry into the concert. We had floor seats so we knew that the sooner we got in the doors, the better our spots would be. Thus, we happily chowed down on burgers and sweet potato fries. When we were done we got into a separate line and entered almost immediately.

Aren't we adorable in our matching band tees?

The restaurant turned out to be a great decision as we ended up in an amazing location during the show. Aside from a cameraman here or there, we had completely unobstructed views. It was the perfect first concert and great way to kick off my summer.
