There is Always a First Time

For me, it was John Denver at the Omni in Atlanta circa 1980. I won’t get into other firsts but it was along the lines of John Denver. Heaven help me.

So for my kids, their first concert experience needed to be awesome. And so the thought was simple: why take the kids to a concert when a music festival is possible and in Toronto no less?

  And so we headed to Field Trip. The Saturday lineup was amazing including Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs, and Hamilton, Ontario’s own Arkells.


Taking the kids to the concert meant we took the afternoon easy and all napped (which was awesome) before heading into the city.

We rocked it late, late, late into the night drinking and eating our way between sets.



We closed the evening enjoying Alabama Shakes before heading home. 


Yeah, I think my kid’s first concert was pretty awesome. Next up? Taylor Swift.
