This past weekend I went to a Borns concert. I have been a fan of Borns for years now. I didn’t plan on going to the concert, but when I saw a chance, I took it.

Friday night I stayed at a friend’s house. I hadn’t seen her in a while and it was really good to see her again. We had a lot of fun playing pool and watching Netflix together. The next day I went home and didn’t do too much. I was bored, and so was my sister, Lizzie, so she came up with an idea. She told me about a concert that was happening that night and asked if I wanted to go with her. She told me who it was that was playing and I agreed immediately.

I have been a fan of Borns for about four years. I remember one day I was searching for new music on youtube and I found one of his songs. I really enjoyed it and the fascination began. Not too long after, I showed this artist to my other sister, Maddie. She loved his music as well. From this time on we had a bond with his music.

On our way down to Indy, Lizzie called Maddie and asked if she wanted to go as well. It was all very spontaneous and unexpected, but she wasn’t doing anything that night, so she said yes! Maddie was excited to see this artist live as well and it ended up being a really fun time.

It was our first “sister concert,”  meaning the first time just the three of us went to a concert together. It was held at Garfield Park near Fountain square, and there were loads of food trucks and people wearing really cute outfits. Since going to the concert was so spontaneous, I didn’t have any cute clothes to wear. All I had were the clothes from when I stayed at my friend’s house the night before. This consisted of a sweatshirt, a jean jacket, leggings, and boots. To say the least, I looked like I was about to go to a coffee shop and study, but nonetheless the concert was still a blast.

The band that opened for Borns was called Twin Shadow. The lead singer, George, wore a cowboy hat and sang indie music. Usually those two aren’t paired, but it was definitely different. My sisters and I enjoyed his music as it was upbeat and fun to dance to. He got the crowd riled up to listen to the main event.

When Borns walked onto the stage, the crowd went wild. He opened with a song that I am very familiar with called “Seeing Stars.” I can say confidently that he sounds better in concert than on a record, but that is the case with most artists. He played song after song and even did a cover of “Bennie and the Jets” that everyone in the crowd sang to. At the end he did an encore that consisted of his most popular song called “Electric Love.” It was a ton of fun to sing and dance with my sisters to an artist we all love. It was definitely a bonding experience for all of us and I would love to do it again.

    Sounds like you had a good time. I wouldn’t even think of going to do anything like this.

    Nicely written Annie. I will have to check and see what kinds of songs I could add to my liked list from his selection

    Awesome article Annie! I am glad you had fun and this was a good idea of Lizzie to go out and do something fun! No better way to cure ones boredom than to go out with your siblings and have a great time spending time with one another.
