Well what does one do when deciding to call a new town home. If you’re anything like me you wanna hit up a live show asap. I just recently moved to West Palm Beach FL. After being here for about a week it was time to hit up a big show. I’ve already been to a couple spots around town to get some of the local flavor and I’m telling you this is a killer place for live music. But, I was ready to bask in the glory of a full on production. So, I looked up some different shows in the area before realizing that I actually now live about 15 min. from iThink Amphitheatre. I really dig the place. It’s almost exactly the same as Tinley Park up by Chicago (my old haunt) I mean like almost exactly. Feeling quite at home I was ready to catch the show, the line-up consisted of Korn, Staind, and ’68. It was so nice to be outside at a huge venue like this, people everywhere having an awesome time. I had almost forgotten how awesome the experience really can be to us music lovers. First up was ’68 and of course I was a little late so I walked in about half-way through their set. Totally my bad, because I shoulda been there for the whole thing. I really dig ’68 they are like a blues hardcore band if you will. Very entertaining with a style all their own.
