Girls just want to have fun...

Monday night Sister #1, our friend Casie, and I went to a concert. It was my June concert in my summer concert series. I must say it was a different concert. We went to the True Colors concert to see Cyndi Lauper, B-52s, and Joanna Jet. Now if you do not know what True Colors is, Google it. No matter what your opinion is on this issue is irrelevant. The point of this post is about the music and the fellow concert goers. Here are some highlights from the concert….

Celebrities. Yes, Cyndia Lauper, B-52, and Joanna Jet were cool to see. It was even cool to see that dude from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, he was the host. However, I think I was most star struck by standing next to local DJs. It’s odd to listen to someone every afternoon and then meet them. Isn’t it weird how DJs never look like how you imagine them?

Bras. Ladies wear them! It doesn’t matter your age or your size, but they need to be wore. I’m sorry but that built in bra in your tiny shirt is not cutting it!!!

B-52s and Joanna Jet. These two groups can put on a show. I was impressed. Imaginary high five for the first person that can tell me how old Joanna Jet is? I’m really asking, I’m too lazy to Google the answer. But I know she has to be in her 50s, right? Anyway, she’s a small lady, and good at the guitar! The B-52s were fun, but I really didn’t know much of their music. I thought I knew more of their songs…I was wrong.

Cyndi Lauper is against smoking. I know, who would have thought? I was so impressed that she made many comments about smoking being bad for you, and out of style. I gained a new respect for Cyndi Lauper.

Great people watching concert. This was better than the airport and 1,000 better than OK & Texas State Fair combined!

All-in-all the June concert was loads of fun. It was a great night to sit outside and listen to good music!

holy cow! Joan Jett (born Joan Marie Larkin on September 22, 1958 in Ardmore, Pennsylvania) is an American rock guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer and actress.

She's very well preserved! I saw her in concert back in 88 or 89. I very much enjoyed the show.

glad you had a great time! The True Colors tour website had some cool music playing but i'm so outta the loop with what's popular now days I had no clue what it was.

Oh sounds like soooo much fun! Yay you! I was such a dolt that until she actually sang "True Colors" at the concert back in '02 I had no clue. (Of course, the LGBT flag helped give it away.)

What's the July concert again?
