When it comes to attending concerts they can be some of the most exciting events we have scheduled on our calendars on any given month. There are few things better in life then seeing one of your favorite music artists perform live and letting all that special music move you. Live concerts are a chance for people to come together and enjoy themselves participating in one of most universal passions of humanity and that is music. Concert are supposed to be fun and the experiences are meant to last a lifetime. If you are hoping to increase the fun and memories at your next concert going experience here are a few accessories you may want to consider bringing.
Concert Experience Enhancement Number 1: Beach balls and Blowup Animals
Ever gone to a sporting event or a concert and seen a blowup beach bouncing around in the crowd? Its an exhilarating experience that can get an entire crowd involved in the community fun that is passing around a blowup ball or animal. From blowup ducks for the pool to blow up bats and balls at sports games to blow up prizes at a carnival the fact is blow up toys are extremely fun and can add some extra excitement and smiles to any appropriate setting and a concert gathering is just that. One key to this tip is to always remember that most likely the beach ball will get lost or popped so go into this angle on fun knowing that and do not get too much invested into the physical item and focus on the overall joy that something so simple as an inflatable toy can bring so many people.
Concert Experience Enhancement Number 2: Portable Vaporizer
When you attend a concert more often then not the goal is to kick back, relax and have some fun while enjoying some amazing music. Usually have some some good food and drinks is also part of the experience and a well put on music show really does appeal to all the human senses. If you want to heighten your sensations and experiences even more do consider adding a portable vaporizer into the mix. Vaping dried herbs and concentrates as seen in the Pax 3 reviews can be the perfect way to not only have the music sounding better but your time spent at the concert will be that much happier as well.
Concert Experience Enhancement Number 3: Camera and Video Phone
While taking videos and pictures may seem like an obvious part of this list we can not tell you how many times we went to a concert and got so caught up in the moment that we forgot to snap any memories which can lead to frowns later when you want to look back. Sometimes after a few drinks and the joining of friends, the next thing you know your so wrapped up in the music and company and libations that you completely forget to document your time out only to the detriment of having the ability to look back and find joy about this time in your life. We think this is just a great time to remind ourselves how important it is to document those special moments in life as pictures and videos can mean for years to come. Even for the next generation of kids and grandkids! What are some concert extras you like to bring to add more fun to your time listening to the music?
As mentioned this blog was largely due to events that unfolded at the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush 2011 concert series. While I explain the reason for starting the blog in the author introduction I also wanted to share some of my favorite moments I experienced while attending the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush 2011 concert series. Not only did I hear a lot of great music but I met my future wife so this event will always carry a special memory in my heart.
Favorite Moment #1: Seeing Lenny Kravitz perform in New York, NY at Terminal 5
Getting to see one of my favorite performers of all time rock out in one of the best concert venues I have ever been to was truly an amazing experience. This concert also happened to be around the time Kravitz released his “Black and White America” album so there was tons of great new tunes from Lenny to take in. I love Kravitz unique approach and style and it was inspiring and humbling to see it all in action up close and personal.
Favorite Moment #2: The Jimmy Kimmel Live! ‘Opening Act’ Contest
Jimmy Kimmel Live! at the time was already one of my favorite shows on TV so him being a part of one of my favorite concert series was just an added bonus. It feels like I can remember the summer of 2011 as if it was yesterday and watching the new, up-and-coming unsigned musicians perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! was an exciting time to be discovering new music. If my memory serves me right I remember the winner of the contest would be the opening act for the highly-anticipated Samsung AT&T Summer Krush grand finale concert event in Seattle, WA. I forgot who won but I do remember staying up at night watching Kimmel and listening to some great bands.
Favorite Moment #3: The Samsung Infuse 4G AT&T Exclusive Release
The funny thing about this moment is it happened because I lost my iPhone at the concert. The entire details of the story are revealed in my blog author intro but the losing of my Apple smartphone somehow lead me to a Samsung device and I have used similar smartphones ever since. I started taking amazing pictures with my Samsung and have never looked back since.

What is your favorite part of New York?
I think what I most enjoy about New York is the diversity and history of the city. Places like Chinatown and Little Italy are just not replicable in any other parts of the world. New York’s history is so rich in the arts and business and everything in between that there is just always something to soak in or become a part of.
What type of music do you personally listen to?
If you remember some of the bands from the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush 2011 concert series like Coldplay, Luke Bryan, The Band Perry, Bush & Chevelle, Lenny Kravitz, and The Avett Brothers then you can start to get a taste of the type of music I enjoy. For the blog’s sake I will call it eclectic mainstream.
What methods do you feel are the best to capture fate or channel destiny?
I personally am enjoying various forms of meditation at the moment. I think meditation can really open up the mind and body not only to new experiences but it also creates an energy and happiness that encourages positive travels. Using meditation to get to know myself better has allowed for my life’s journey to be so much more rewarding, at least from my perspective.
