So, after an afternoon of listening to U.G.K, I was sitting around the apartment on Sunday evening, not knowing what to do with myself. Women’s Final Four? Meh. I’ll have it on, but I can’t guarantee my undivided attention. Granted, I wasn’t bored. I despise the word ‘bored’ – can bloggers really ever say that they’re bored? In any case, a text message from my boy Rob came into my phone around 7:30 pm, “Hey, you wanna go to Jay-Z?”
Uhh….okay? Wasn’t aware that Jay-Z was in DC….so the potential for a trick was present. Well a trick it was not. The next thing I knew, I found myself at the sold-out Verizon Center in Chinatown DC with front row club level seats — witnessing Mary J. Blige and my first Jay-Z concert. Mary J. put on an absolute show. Jay-Z….he was pretty damn good. I could be picky with song selection and quantity, but I won’t. [My Top 10 Jay-Z Tracks]
Thanks to Rob for looking out and thanks to his boy John for giving up the tickets.
