When: August 16 // Weather: hot // Real life: Indiana State Fair
Have you ever wondered what those angsty bands you listed to in high school and college are up to now? The answer is: they’re playing at Midwestern state fairs.
And have you ever wondered who goes to see, say, Dashboard Confessional and the All American Rejects at, say, the Indiana State Fair? The answer is ME, and a few hundred other 20- and 30-somethings who want to relive the early 2000s. And to celebrate the good old days when I was too young to have cellulite, I wore short shorts 🙂
I realized once I got there that I really don’t know that many Dashboard or All American Rejects songs, but I sure did scream along to the ones I knew. I’ve been working a lot and being oh-so-adult lately (hence the sporadic blogging), so an outdoor concert to remind me of my more youthful days was definitely a great way to soak in the last full month of summer.
