After Homecoming this last weekend, I was given the opportunityto leave small town Canyon, and escape to the mile high city of Denver, Colorado. It was a great time to just get away and relax with college off my mind. I also got the chance Tuesday night to see the band Anberlin perform at the Ogden theater. For those of you who don’t know me that well, I’m addicted to Denver, and even more so Music. This is not my first time in Denver for a concert, and certainly not my last even though the parents are not supportive of these road trips, concert trips, and the long distance girlfriend that sparks these interests even more. I must give her the shout out though for getting us the tickets for this last show, thanks Alex.
After a great show from a band called There for Tomorrow, Straylight Run, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, and of course Anberlin rocked some faces off. I highly recommend There for Tomorrow(http://www.myspace.com/therefortomorrow) and Anberlin (http://www.anberlin.com/). I loved every second of the concert., but it did not last long enough. Before I knew it I was back on my way back to the Texas panhandle. I thought that the second I would get back I wouldn’t want to get back in the groove. Although I missed the mile high city, and being able to hang with Alex non-stop, my life here is pretty eventful.
Last night the Baptist Student Ministry had the bands The Bank, and Abandon Kansas play. It was an amazing show and a ton of fun. It was not a big time show like Denver holds, but Canyon does have some things to do. It was a lot of fun, and getting back into the groove I get to be a part of a great program before Midnight Madness. Monday night Buff Hall and the Residence Hall Association will be hosting a Wii Boxing Tournament where the winner will win a Nintendo Wii, and a chance to Wii Box President O’Brien at Midnight Madness. It will be at 7 p.m. Monday, October 13 and is open for all who live on campus. I really miss the things Denver has to hold but there is a reason I am here in Canyon, TX. It is a great place to live and happens to be within drive of major concerts and events, if you ever get bored. After seeing all these bands play lately, I feel that I need to practice guitar and join a band. It is the only logical thing to do.
