Last Minute Ticket

Last night Studly Doright was out of town, so I had an entire evening to kill. I could’ve stayed home snuggled down with the cats, but as I scrolled through Facebook I saw an ad for a Sister Hazel concert in Tallahassee that very night. With one click I bought my ticket, threw on a clean T-shirt, and drove to the Ruby Diamond Auditorium on the campus of Florida State University.

Past experiences with buying a last minute single ticket have generally resulted in great seats. I’ve ended up in the fourth row before. Last night I was twelve rows from the stage and right in the middle. Not too shabby.

Fans of the band are dubbed “Hazelnuts” and there was a huge contingent of them in the audience. Sister Hazel was formed in Gainesville, Florida, in the early 90’s and played in Tallahassee regularly during their early years, so there were quite a few fond memories of the band’s partying days at FSU recounted from the stage.

By the end of the concert I was singing along, having become something of a Hazelnut myself.

(The band members are a bit older than in the YouTube video link, but still rocking strong.)

Peace, people!

    1. Thank you, although, sometimes I do so with trepidation instead of abandon. I try to recall that saying from Who Moved My Cheese. “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”

  1. Sister Hazel?! I saw them in concert in Orlando about 5 years ago. I was at a work conference and the hotel always provides entertainment for us conference attendees. Sister Hazel was the opening act for Kenny Loggins. Great shows, both!
