Anastasia Sidiropoulou 25th July 2006
Have you ever been to a teen concert in your town? A concert that started at eight o’clock and ended half an hour after midnight and all the people watching it were teenagers aged from eleven to nineteen? I have, and I’ve got to tell you that it was awesome!
Two months ago on a sunny but cold afternoon a friend of mine, John, announced in the English class that his punk band “Psychosthenia” were going to give a live performance the following Saturday in the Town Centre. A few other bands were going to play live there too, and I knew almost all of them. I wouldn’t miss it no matter what! My friends Georgia, Charitini and Panagiota were dying to go too, so we arranged to meet at seven thirty.
The big day arrived and with it my friends and I at the concert. When the concert started some hip hop bands were on stage and we felt terribly bored. The audience was booing and some people were laughing at them, but after some hip hop music the real entertainment finally came on and we had a great time. The music was sooooooooooo loud and we danced the night away! My friend Georgia and I became completely immersed in the music – we sang “Don’t cry”, “Paranoid” and lots of Greek rock songs.
This concert was the best I have ever been to because I met lots of people and joined in the singing of every song I knew. Everyone was there: burn outs, punks, rockers, metal heads, even the trendy ones! But it didn’t matter at all while each and every one of them was feeling the strong beat through their bodies.
But I have to warn you after all this – head banging is really a very exhausting thing to do. After two hours at the concert I couldn’t even breathe!
