In this First Concert Ever segment, the pop rap artist, shadyMFJ, talks about the story of his first experience with live music. You can check out the story, after the break.

My first concert ever? Man. I remember my mom taking me to watch street performers and mall concerts when I was still sitting in a stroller. I was obsessed with this group of dudes who sang catchy kids bops – I can’t remember their name, but I would make her take me to all the art walks and festivals they would play at. I was like 4 or 5 years old, but I remember feeling so enamored by the live music. Little kids are walking antennas, it really had an impact on me and I started playing piano right around the same time. But on to the juicy stuff…

 

The first real high energy concert I ever went to was Warped Tour 1999. I must have been 7 or 8, my uncle was living with my family at the time and he was always blasting good music. He got me so into Blink 182. I remember begging (or demanding?) my mom to let me go with him and his friends to the show. Thankfully she had no idea what it really was. I have the most vivid memory of sitting on my uncle’s shoulders watching Blink and Eminem, singing along to My Name Is. The Pennywise show was the first time I saw a moshpit. I didn’t even really know who Pennywise was, but I was so energized. That day changed my life and even now they’re some of my favorite memories.
