For my 10th birthday, my sister received me tickets to see my favourite band, Smash Mouth, on the Invoice Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. So my dad drove me and my two finest pals, John and David, two hours to town to see them play “Allstar” stay.
My dad and David, neither of whom gave a crap about Smash Mouth, stayed up within the balcony the entire time whereas John and I went loopy within the FRONT ROW. After an ideal set of lesser hits, the band left the stage … with out taking part in “Allstar.” John and I have been devastated. We trudged again as much as the balcony to seek out David sleeping in his chair. I nearly began crying to my dad, utterly flabbergasted at how they did not play their largest hit. Then, trying down from the balcony, I watched as they walked again out and the gang went nuts as homeboy picked up the mic and sang “Any individual as soon as informed me …” That is how I found what an encore was.
I used to be fairly upset they duped us into dropping our entrance row spot, so I shortly forgot about them and adopted Blink-182 as my new favourite band.
