The Hounds Below
Tell us about your first concert experience?
My first real concert experience was... when I was 14 or 15 years old I won 10 tickets to see sarah mclachlan. My idea was that if I invited 9 girls, hopefully one of them would take pity on me and possibly date me or something (I don't know what I was thinking, I had never even kissed a girl at that point). So I went to the concert and a week later I kissed one of the girls... VERY EMBARRESSING
