Third Eye Blind 20th Anniversary Tour

I really didn't start getting into music until I was around 16 and from that point on it became a big part of my life and I loved going to concerts. Third Eye Blind was one of my first favorite bands...meaning I listened to their CD over and over again and took time to be sure I knew every word to every song. I saw them the summer I was 16 for the first time and when we found out they were doing a tour this summer where they would play that entire first CD I had to be there!
The timing of the show didn't end up being great in our busy schedule, but you buy tickets so far in advance there is no way to know what will be going on. It ended up that we returned home from our trip to Mexico Thursday night, headed to a swim meet the next day and then that night drove up to the Woodlands for the concert. The opening band, Silversun Pickups, came on at 7:30pm and Third Eye Blind wasn't scheduled to start until 9pm. My thoughts were, "They are in their 50s! Why are they starting so late?" but we managed to stay awake for the whole show ;-).
The Silversun Pickups are a great band and Mike really likes them which made the concert more fun for him since he isn't a big Third Eye Blind fan. We got into the pit right before they started and got a good spot against the railing on the right side of the stage where we could feel the A/C from the stage a bit and lean on the barrier which made it easier for us to make it :-).
When Third Eye Blind first came on stage they played some of their new songs, which weren't very good. After a deep and inspiring speech ;-) from Stephen Jenkins, the lead singer, they started playing through that first album and it was so fun! He is such a weirdo but it made the show entertaining and I was thoroughly impressed with myself for remembering all the words 20 years later!
