you came in with the breeze

Last night was the night I had been anticipating for weeks: No Doubt at Turning Stone Casino in Verona NY! My sister and I had great tickets - 5th row (thank you fan club pre-sale!). Verona is about an hour and a half from Albany, we left a little before 6:00 and arrived around 7:30. First things first upon arrival: track down that slot machine I won $300 on back in february, and pump some quarters in. There must be something about that machine because within the first 5 minutes of playing, I was up over $100. Just enough money to pay myself back for the concert ticket! We grabbed a bite to eat at one of the restaurants, then made our way into the venue. We were escorted to our awesome seats in time to see the last 2 Paramour songs. They were cute, but not really my thing. No Doubt started around 9:15. They were really great, even though the crowd was weird. The floor was covered in folding chairs with assigned seats, so there was no room to move at all. Everyone (including me) just kind of stood there taking pictures with their cameras and cell phones. I turned my camera on and saw that boyfriend had wore the bettery down taking pics for ebay, and I only had one bar left!! I was upset by that, but tried to conserve it, and managed to get a few pictures (like that one up there). I've definitely had more fun at other no doubt shows I've been too, but it was still great to see them. Gwen commented that our show was the smallest venue on the tour and that she could literally see every single person there. I feel lucky to have been about to see them in such a small venue.
