In this First Concert Ever segment, the alternative rock band, Destroy Boys, talks about the stories of their first experiences with live music. You can check out the story, after the break.
It was jingle ball 2010 in Sacramento with Paramore, B.O.B, 3OH!3, and Jesse McCartney. My parents took me. I met all the artists and I did not care, because I was really excited to meet the radio hosts from the End in Sacramento. I loved them. I love Gavin, Katie, and the other jocks. I was so excited to meet the radio hosts because I listened to their “War of the Roses.’
My dad would always drive me to school and our deal was that I would get one song or one episode of “War of the Roses” and then he would get one song. My parents are both rockers, but I didn’t like rock music till I was like 12. I only listen to pop. So I’d get one pop song, or one “War, the Roses” episode. Then he’d get one Green Day, A Red Hot Chili Pepper song, and then we trade back and forth. “The War of the Roses” was a cheating show. Where they’d call some guy whose partner thought he was cheating. They would call and say things like “Hi, this is like Sacramento flower company. Do you want 12 red roses and who are you gonna send them to? “ The guys would respond with “my mistress,” and then the girl would be like, “You cheater “ at 7am” I hate you. Get out, pack up your stuff. “ It was awesome. So I was just really glad to meet them at Jingle Ball. I got signed posters from all the bands that I ended up trying to sell to my friends at school. Well, and check this out. I was only 10 and I got so tired that left before Paramore, who were the headliners. I can’t believe it.
My first concert was a Reel big fish and less than Jake. My brother took me. It was tight. I had a great time. It was in 2014 in Sacramento. I actually just found the ticket for it that already says this is Alexia. Yes. It was really great. I had such a good time at Reel Big Fish. I like really liked them at the time.
