On Thursday 8th of October 2015, we had our typical Intro to Music class. As we finished our class, our professor, Dr. A.Fouad invited us to a concert on Sunday October 11th, 2015 about underground bands. As much as I was excited to go, I couldn’t wait for Sunday to come so I can discover other underground bands I didn’t know about.
Sunday finally came and I was in my Music Tech class. Dr. Shahir Nakhla also invited me to the concert and we chitchatted a bit.

Always being the typical late me, he waited 15 minutes for me to get to the theatre. But we eventually got inside. As soon as I saw Dr. Nakhla, I ran to him to say hi then got next to him to see what a sound engineer does in a live concert. It took awhile for the concert to start as the first band was preparing. I got a really bad first impression about the first band because I think a band should be punctual in their performance and the audience shouldn’t wait for them.
Khaldoon and I were a little bit disappointed because there was no concert program available and the performers did not announce some of the songs’ names.
