Last Thursday, I went to the concert of The Wombats at the Webster Hall.
I was disappointed by some things I wanted to share with you, in order to have your opinion.
It was my first “rock” concert in New York so I don’t know if my judgement is too harsh.
First, they told us to arrive at 6:30 p.m. because the concert began at this time but we had to wait one hour in front of the Webster Hall. They only opened the doors at 7:30 p.m.
Then, during the show, the quality of the sound was not very good. We couldn’t even hear what the singer was saying.
Last but not least, I was disappointed by the behavior of the band. They didn’t interact too much with the audience. As if they were here to make money and music and that’s all. They didn’t even say hello before starting !
Finally, we left before the real end. We were happy because we saw The Wombats but we weren’t expected this kind of show.
If you have an experience to share about a rock concert in New York, go ahead ! I would be glad to hear other testimonies.
Here is one of their best song :
I had the pleasure of attending the Origins rock the earth concert at Webster Hall this past Wednesday featuring new act Tara Layne, blast from the past Vanessa Carlton and one of my all-time favorite artists Gavin Degraw. One of my favorite things about the concert (besides the fact that it was free!) was that for every person in attendance Origins planted a tree. We also got goody bags with Origins products (my favorite skin care line) and iTunes gift cards. The energy at the concert was amazing and One Tree Hill fans got a special little treat as Sophia Bush (who plays Brooke on the show) was hosting the event. Vanessa Carlton performed some new songs and cursed quite a bit which was a pleasant surprise (I like anyone that can be real). She also performed her hit a thousand miles which got the whole crowd going and me giggling because I can’t get over that one scene in white chicks when Terry Crews’ character belts it out. Then there is the dreamboat Gavin Degraw who moved on that stage in a mesmerizing way. If only he’d move like that on Dancing with the stars he wouldn’t have gotten eliminated! This concert was definitely worth all those hours I stood around waiting to get in and it was all for a good cause. Thank you Origins, for the tree, for giving 13 year old me what I’ve wanted ever since One Tree Hill came on the air (to see Gavin Degraw and Sophia Bush live) and the treats. It was a wonderful time. I will definitely be attending Gavin’s next concert in June and I’ll more than gladly pay.
