I don’t get to attend many concerts each year and when I do it is usually me taking my daughter to a show. This case was no different with the exception that I am fan of the band as well. The band is Thirdstory who are out of New York City and featuring Elliott Skinner, Ben Lusher and Richard Saunders. Their music is a mixture of Pop and R&B with some unbelievable harmonizing. That is definitely the highlight of the band.
The night started out early as the show didn’t start until 8pm, but we had to arrive at 5:30pm. Why? Well, I am trying to win a Father of the Year award and I surprised my daughter with Meet & Greet passes for the show. She had been hinting all along how cheap it was and I didn’t even have to get a pass since she was underage. I could be her chaperone. Little did she know how convincing of an argument she made.
We got there a little early and she ended up being 2nd in line to meet the band. She was so nervous and it all started it out well enough. She walked up all smiles and started talking, saying hello to the band and then suddenly she got a little quiet. So, in good old dad fashion, I jumped right in to keep the conversation going. I mentioned she saw the band once before when they opened for Tori Kelly almost two years to the day at the Fillmore in Charlotte.
The band has a song “G Train” (which I will talk about later), but I brought up the fact we were in New York a couple weeks earlier. I told them we were unable to catch the G Train while we were there. Funny enough, they laughed and said they would be worried if we did as it isn’t the safest train in New York. Now, I am glad we didn’t catch it.
