OAR at Artpark

Last week I went with Mike and some of his friends to an OAR concert at Artpark, an outdoor concert venue in Lewiston, New York.  Now, I am not an OAR fan.  It isn’t that I don’t like their music, I just never really got into them.  In fact, the first year I went with Mike to see them at Artpark I was miserable.  I had gone to the concert with an empty stomach, I didn’t really know the music, and the smell of pot was so overwhelming it made me sick.  Not enjoyable.  In fact, it was so un-enjoyable, that I didn’t go with Mike to see them for another two years.

This year, however, I decided I would try again.  I mean, you know how much I love outdoor concerts.  I don’t know if you have ever been to Lewiston, but if you haven’t, you should go.  It is a quaint town that overlooks the Niagara River.  There are some beautiful views and lots of places to shop, eat and drink.  So, that is what we did before the concert.  I wasn’t about to make the same mistake twice.  As soon as we got to Lewiston, we made our way to the Brickyard for some beers and bbq.  We got a nice table outside on the patio and stuffed ourselves good.

Then we made our way to the actual concert venue.  Artpark is really a cool venue.  There isn’t really a bad seat.  Take a look at the pictures.  There was a guy there dressed as Waldo.  See if you can find him.

Anyway, the concert itself was pretty good too.  Like I said, not really my kind of music, but I still danced along and sang the few songs that I did know.  The smell of pot in the air wasn’t nearly as potent this year and I really had an enjoyable experience.  I’ll definitely be doing it again next year.
