Instead of a Tempo Run, I Did This

Last night, the hubs and I went to the 10 Years concert at The Social.

The Social is a small live music venue in downtown Orlando that caters to small bands and local bands. It’s one of my favorite places, not only because it’s 15 minutes away from my house, but also because no matter where you stand, you’re close to the stage. If you’re standing on the right side of the stage, the band members have to walk by you to get on the stage, which is also fun. 🙂

Sometimes The Social books some really cool shows and they are always super cheap. I’ve seen Lisa Loeb there a few times and hubs and I have seen Sneaker Pimps, Seether, and Papa Roach. I don’t think any of those shows were more than $20.

Most of my pictures came out blurry. Probably half because of the mass beer consumption and half because of the annoying guy standing behind me that was eventually kicked out. So are a few of the better shots from the show.

I have all of 10 Years’ albums (there are 3) and have loved them for years but had no clue what the band looked like until last night. <—– bad fan  The lead singer reminded me of Christian Bale.

We were really happy to be at a rock show again. There’s been so much Britney, Katy, Ke$ha, and Gaga in our life that it was nice to be at a show where everyone isn’t 13 and slutty.

During the show, I went to the bar to get a drink and there was a drunk chic passed out at a table by herself. I felt bad for her for a few seconds but then, you know that moment when you’re faced with a dilemma and you need to quickly choose between right and wrong? 

We’ll just add that to the reasons I’m going to hell. But at least I’ll have company because the trend caught on and everyone was taking pictures with her.

Overall, I had a lot of fun! There are a few songs I wish they would have played instead of others, but they were still great and sounded really good. Oh, and the concert was definitely better than the tempo run that I was supposed to do last night. 🙂

Updated: The drunk girl woke up a few minutes later, so she was ok, by the way.

  1. JEALOUS! I adore the Social and haven’t been there since my Dr. Disaster night (a story for another time). And drunk chick pictures are ALWAYS a good idea.

  2. LOVE the drunk girl pictures. I think you totally made the right decision in taking them. Looks like a great time!

  3. I love the title to this post. You are too funny! Love the pictures! 🙂

  4. Hilarious. Shame on that fool for passing out at the bar! I mean really?! Where are her friends?
    I love small intimate venues. I think they are much more fun!

    *Run skipper* :p

    Dude, who lets their friends pass out a bar and leaves them unattended?? At least she was hugging that purse tight.

  6. I was so giggling just reading this. I would’ve had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard at taking a picture with the passed out chick.

    hahahah thank you for doing that. at least her boobs look great.

    How do you know she was drunk? Maybe she was just really tired from a long hard day working her street corner and she needed a nap. 😉

    I miss going to The Social. I can’t even remember the last time I was there, but it was probably with you and fabman! 😀

  9. It’s a good thing I work at home because I am laughing my ass off right now. I would have been planking on that table next to her. I’ll join you in hell because I totally would have done the same thing!

    Bahahaha, Love the drunk-passed-out-girl pictures! I must be on that train straight to hell with you, because I would have done the same thing!

    Concerts are always > than Tempo Runs. ALWAYS.

  11. Sometimes you just need to skip a run! Those pics of the girl at the end had me laughing at my desk! So great.

  12. Ahh that is so mean taking a pic next to her! Mean but funny. I feel so bad for her 🙁

    • I know. I’m waiting for karma to get me on that one. She was fine though. She woke up and I saw some people she knew come to the table after about 5 minutes.

    I haven’t been to the Social in ages–I miss that place. You have to watch what you do out in public these days–thank God no one carried camera phones on them at all time when I was in full party mode during college. Looks like you had a blast.

    Cheers.

  14. That.is.fantastic. YOU are fantastic. We can be in hell together. It will be super fun and we’ll have cake. Yeah, I think we can get cake in hell.

  15. I love that you took a pic beside the drunk chick!! I love people like you!

  16. Poor girl, but I know I would have likely done the same thing and taken a pic by her! I used to love Lisa Loeb back in the day. I think I’d like to see her in concert again.

  17. I too rebelled against my run & opted for the counch & ice cream instead. The long run this weekend is not going to be pretty!

  18. Aw I love 10 years, I’d love to see them in concert!

    Pretty funny about the drunk girl… hopefully I’ve never been that person… Eek.
