May 30, 2010 Urban Word of the Day
n. A complete and comprehensive list of concerts that one has attended. Often casual conversation between fellow concert goers.
Today, I added Rock on the Range to my concert resume, which was already more than impressive.
a list of all the music concerts you have seen during your lifetime so far. It makes for vibrant conversation (and some boasting) at parties, reunions and other events. Some of the people you tell your tales to may be amazed, awed and/or envious of you.
1. When I was a teenager my folks wouldn't let me go to a show under any circumstances whatsoever, so in high school my concert resume was a total blank sheet. At a high school class reunion some of us were comparing concert resumes and many in my class were impressed with mine. It includes Foreigner, Def Leppard, Van Halen, U2, Huey Lewis and the News, the Ramones, Genesis, Rush, Pink Floyd and more!
2. When I saw Rush for the first time the opening act was Mr. Big and boy did they ever suck big time. So lousy their set was that there were only about 60-odd drunken rowdies cheering them on, everyone else went under the seat tiers. I ran into Randy, Tom and John from my high school class and we talked about wives, girlfriends, kids, travel and concert resumes until the chumpy-ass openers finished their 40-minute set. Soon afterward Rush started performing and when they play you KNOW you're in for a treat!
