ALL TIME LOW @ The Grove: A Recap

I've been listening to All Time Low for 8 years now. I haven't been a complete super-fan, but I do know all of their songs. My relationship with All Time Low was strictly for the music. I didn't have posters of the band members on my walls and I didn't know every detail of their personal life. But when I heard Dear Maria, Count Me In, Weightless and Somewhere In Neverland, I was taken to another realm of teenage angst and summer recklessness.

We got Sprinkles Cupcakes! Cuban coffee and coconut, obv.

When I saw All Time Low would be playing a free concert at The Grove as a part of their concert series, I instantly knew I HAD to go.

We got there a few hours earlier, because I figured it would be pretty packed. However, there was an entire line of preteen girls circling around The Grove. As we were patiently trying to navigate the end of the line, we realized there was no way all of these people would fit in the tiny space provided. Waiting in line was pointless. We needed to find a way to cheat the system and get a unconventional spot.

Here's the thing: We knew we weren't going to get in the actual tiny space for viewing the concert, and we couldn't block the pathways. So...we found a small space at the fountain to view the concert at. Although there were trees blocking them, it was a lot better than people blocking them. And the sound was perfect for where we were at.

Hearing All Time Low perform some of the most important songs of my life was bloody brilliant. Not only were they great sit-down comedians (Joke credit: Jack), but the vocals were on point. I've always preferred them acoustic, so this was even dreamier than I expected.
