Star Party {2010}

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Star Party is one of the annual concerts that Clear Channel put's on every year. It usually is in May. The other annual concert is Jingleball and that is usually in December. Last year was the first year that I had gone to Star Party and let me tell you...it was a blast. So I was looking forward to this year thinking it would be just the same...SO NOT THE SAME. It was actually quite disappointing. The disappointment was a mixture of personal issues with the evening and the concert itself. The venue, EPIC Nightclub, seems like it would be a great place for this type of thing and it might have been if everything went on without a hitch. Well, the following is a list of various issues with the night:

1. Videos not playing;
2. Sound not working and leading to one of the artists having to do his hit accapella, which sounded great, but was embarrassing and pathetic;
3. Long breaks in between acts, which probably wouldn't have been a big deal, but there were 7 (too many) and it ran long and didn't start on time;
4. VIP area was on the top floor which had no direct view of the stage and you had to fight for a spot...so annoying;
5. Hot.
6. Crabby Husband...not at me, but at the constant sound/video screw-ups.

Even though with everything going on, I still got to hangout and enjoy the company of friends. I also got to meet B.O.B.

I can't finish this blog without mentioning the other friends that were there: Jenny, Dan, Amber, Paul, Lizzie, Kayla, Jess and Sam.

Thanks friends for making my night manageable. Hopefully next year will be better!
