Here is a situation we have all been in. You want to go to a concert, like say Go Fest 19 for example, but maybe you are struggling to find someone to go with. Maybe your friends are getting an early jump on 4th of July weekend up north. Or maybe you have a buddy that bails on you the last second. What do you do? Punt on the show?
Absolutely not. There is no shame in rocking a concert solo. We need to remove the stigma about rolling solo. It really is quite amazing. Here are some of the benefits:
- You don’t have to worry about losing your friends. How annoying is it when you end up spending half of the show trying to track down people after you get separated? Or if you have that friend who you know will be a social butterfly and be off looking for some cutie to sway with during ‘Unsteady’ by X-Ambassadors? Not your problem. You get to enjoy the show.
- Going to a concert solo is a great way to meet people. This is especially true with the concerts we throw at Go 963. By coming to any of our events, shows, Trust Buses, whatever, you are automatically part of the Go Fam and friends with everyone. I can’t tell you how many friendships have been formed at Go events. Never feel like you are showing up to a Go event “by yourself.” You are heading to one of our events to meet up with the rest of the Go Fam. Come find me. I will introduce you around. I will be the guy in the bandanna.
- You can stand wherever you want when you go solo. Feel like hanging back by the bar? Let it rip. Is this the type of show you want to be so close your elbows are on the stage? Make it happen. When you go by yourself you call all the shots. You can move around and take the show in from every angle.
- You’ll notice so much more of the show. When you don’t have a posse to keep track of you can just be in-the-moment and focus on nothing but the band. After all, that is why you are there, right?
So never feel shy or embarrassed about rolling up to a show by yourself, especially if it is one of our Go concerts. If you are ever feeling nervous about going solo just email me and I will come meet you at the gate. See you all at GoFest 19. No excuses.
