It's just not worth itPosted Thursday, May 31, 2012, at 5:10 PM
A former writer here, Michael, asked me to go on a whim last week and for some reason I agreed. The tickets were $20 on Groupon and a few hours of some terrible music and fashion wouldn't be so bad, I thought.
The concert began with us finding the nearest bar in the arena, which resulted in us being some of the oldest people there that were not with children and me paying $9 for a beer.
Not enough beer in the world could have prepared me for what I was in for on Saturday night. Michael and I for one did not have one piece of neon or zebra stripped clothing on and we also forgot our glow sticks.
As the concert began we listened to some guy who was not memorable, but then one of the best or worst moments of my concert history happened. This chick, Eva Simmons, who sings that semi-popular song, 'I want you to take over control', was the second opener. She played her popular song off of what seemed was just an I-pod recording. The entire song she pranced around the stage while saying 'HEY!' every two minutes, no actual singing was done.
After I realized I would never get those three minutes of my life back I was hoping she'd be done. However, Simmons proceeded to play the remix of the same song she just lip-synced this time saying 'WHAT!' instead of hey. It was at that moment that a beer refill was needed.
Never in my life have I seen anyone do the original song and then turn around and do the remix of the song back-to-back. It was terrible. Not just because of the order of the events that happened before my eyes, but the fact that no actual singing was done from this chick.
This concert reminded me exactly what it was like to be in third grade again going to see the Spice Girls or N-sync. Although, the lyrical content of LMFAO (or FAMOO as my mother called them this weekend), is quite dirty. Although a terrible song, I did somewhat enjoy the song 'I am not a whore...but I like to do it". Merely because of the fact I really only know like three songs from the band and it was a surprise and just pure comedy.
It was good to see Michael for the first time since he left us here at the Banner, but I will never say yes to going to such a terrible concert again.
