In this First Concert Ever segment, the singer-songwriter, dora., talks about the story of her first experience with live music. You can check out the story, after the break.
My first concert ever was Kanye West in Boston. My dad took me and three friends on Halloween night. I was 13 years old. I remember being so freaking excited that I got a whole new sparkly outfit for the show. I think we were the only 13 year olds there. And the only ones in sparkly outfits.
The concert was right when his album, College Dropout ,came out. When he played “family business” I screamed. I remember there being a whole horn section and thinking it was the coolest thing. It was also the first time I smelt weed! I remember saying to my dad, “What is that smell?”… Best believe the next concert I went to was Michelle Branch. Much less weed there.
Thinking about all of this is inspiring me to go another concert with my dad. It probably won’t be a Kanye concert, though that would be a beautiful full-circle moment.
