Two weekends ago, I was able to attend Warped Tour, working with FM102.1. Of course nothing that I do comes without a little adventure. On the way to the Summerfest grounds I experienced a little glitch with my car, and ended up having to get it towed. However, I did make it to the Summerfest grounds! I really enjoyed seeing all the behind the scenes set up of Warped Tour. I also got to attend and help manage the Paramore meet and greet, which was awesome. Below are a few pictures from the event.
Well, since I have had a little time off from horse showing, I have created a little more time for my internship at FM102/1. YAY! But no really, I have an awesome job! While I was working at Summerfest I had an awesome time and got the chance to meet a wide array of colorful individuals. While I was working I also got the chance to do several “Meet and Greets.” Some of the bands that I got the pleasure to meet included Jacks Mannequin, Taking Back Sunday, Neon Trees, Panic at the Disco, The Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s. I also got to see an awesome concert put on by Cage the Elephant, Florence and the Machine, and The Black Keys at the Marcus from the 3rd row! I would have to say the kindest band that I had met to date was The Airborne Toxic Event. I really enjoyed meeting them and chatting. My favorite show entertainment wise was probably Taking Back Sunday. I loved how engaged they got with the audience and let everyone know how happy they were to be performing at Summerfest. Below is a small sample of pictures that I got the chance to snap while at Summerfest. Enjoy!

Last weekend I worked at the Blue October concert at the Pabst Theater. I worked there for my internship with the Milwaukee Radio Alliance and FM 102.1. This was my first concert where I got to work a sound check party for station winners. I have to say it was pretty awesome! I checked people in for the sound check and then I got to check it out for myself. Blue October was also accompanied by an awesome band called The Solider Thread. The lead singer had an amazing voice and I am definitely interested in hearing more from her. I also got to meet the band for the station meet and greet. I was expecting them to be very rude and rushed to get out of there but they were actually some of the nicest people I have met. I was really excited to get a signed poster by them and my photo taken with them which is posted below. I also got a chance to check out the actual concert after working and it was amazing! It was an all acoustic show and all the guys had so much talent. It was a really fun concert to see. I’m sure there will be many more concert encounters very soon, and I will be right back here to tell you about them!
