Friday was amazing. This week went by so slow because I just wanted it to be Friday so I could put my Mighty Mighty Bosstones tickets to use. I've just been staring at them for months. Even though I’ve seen them so many times, I’m always excited to see them again.
I had my Seminar and Algebra finals Friday. In Seminar we didn't really have a final, so we just sat around. Algebra was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be.
Fri. 13 - Seminar G / Algebra H
Mon. 16 - English C / Biology D
Tues. 17 - History E / P.E. F
Wed. 18 - Spanish A / Keyboard B
Thurs. 19 - EFGHABCD
Fri. 20 - Summer
After school Friday I met up with Brandon and Jim and Jim's mom drove us to my house. We played basketball, listened to music, ate a bunch of food, walked to the store and back, watched Old School (Blue your my boy!), and just chilled to pass the time.
We left for Hampton Beach at about 4:30, listened to the Bosstones on the way, and got there about an hour later. Everyone we were with wanted to go out to eat, so we did. We three ate so much food that day, it was ridiculous. After we ate we just left everyone there and went off on our own, it was about 6:00. We went and sat on the balcony/porch at the cottage and talked/fantasized for an hour.
At 7:00 we started walking the boulevard to the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. The show started at 8:00, so we just chilled inside and waited.
Catch Twenty Two opened, they are an amazing ska band, enough said.
Voodoo Glow Skulls, the only west coast ska/punk band there, were all right. Everyone else enjoyed them though.
Next were the Pietasters, when we all started our crowd surfing and dancing. They are an amazing ska/reggae band. I finally got one of their shirts too.
Finally, after a long wait, were the Bosstones. I love when the whole crowd chants, “Mighty Mighty! Bosstones!” right before they take the stage. Then the lights go off, their intro music goes on, they get on stage, and its absolute chaos. We all lost each other for a good amount of songs at the beginning, but then found one another for the rest of the show. Brandon had his camera, so hopefully the pictures come out good.
It was another awesome experience seeing them live again. I love seeing the Bosstones, I love when they represent Boston where they came from, I love ska, I love Hampton Beach, and I love my friends.
The show ended at midnight, and then we walked back to the cottage in the rain to meet up with everyone to go home. All three adults were drunk, one was in walking distance to their house, and the other two were passed out. So, we relied on my sister’s friend to drive us home because my sister is horrible at driving. We got home at 1:00 AM.
What a fucking great night.
Today I’m probably doing nothing, and tomorrow I’m studying for finals.
I can’t wait for summer.
