Taylor Swift Concert

A couple of weekends ago, I went on an epic two concert tour of Arkansas. I saw The Fray in Jonesboro and Taylor Swift in Little Rock. I really enjoyed both shows. The Fearless tour is flashy, epic sets, hours long playlist of top forty hits; think Garth Brooks in the nineties with more chicks. The Fray show was just some guys from Denver rocking out on a set that included lights that occasionally blinded the audience and a couple of screens.

Possibly the best part outside of the music is what type of person came to each show and what they were wearing. At The Fray, it leaned towards college aged to mid-thirties, emo/hippie types. At Taylor Swift? Well, there was some women in their early twenties, but there was a lot of forty-somethings with their babies and preschool kids. Everyone had big hair, short dresses, and boots. Well, not everyone...
