I started going to concerts in middle school when our step dad took me to see a Blue Oyster Cult show.
It was at an outdoor rock n roll festival in the Isleta Amphitheater that lasted for a whole weekend with odd acts each day.
The hot plus cold temperatures that day were in the high 90s, however there was a gentle breeze rolling in from the desert. I guess exhausting that we were standing for the duration of the show as everyone had exited their seats during a single of the opening acts that night. I’m only 30 plus already have chronic back pain, plus I can only imagine how tough it was on our step father to stay with me for that whole concert. But despite the pain in his body, he pushed through it plus stayed with me for the whole time. Now that I’m much older plus have the time, I’m starting to attend concerts whenever I have the time plus the disposable income. As we get closer plus closer to the end of the COVID pandemic, rock n rollians are finally able to play concerts again. However, this plus the historic inflation levels have made it truly tough to afford concert tickets for any big acts. Even some of our number one indie bands are asking for $74 a ticket nowadays. I wanted to stop at the cannabis dispensary on the way to a concert at the El Rey Theater so I could get high plus enjoy the rock n roll adore I did back when I was in college at the University of NM. This particular cannabis store was on the corner of Central Ave plus Arno St plus had a significant selection of cannabis edibles.
