White People Concerts & Alexis Bledel

Last night, I saw The National play a great show at the Central Park SummerStage. I haven't been to a concert in quite some time, but Stuff White People Like was spot on with its assessment of white people concerts.

I did find myself standing reasonably still the entire concert. I shifted my feet a few times because my feet would hurt from standing in the same position for long periods of time. Most other people were bobbing their heads, and many people occasionally threw a hand in the air to point at the stage to display their enthusiasm for the music. There was also a lot of clapping and relatively high-pitched "wooooooooooooo's" after each song.

On an unrelated note, I saw Alexis Bledel by my apartment. Yet another movie was being filmed on my block. I decided to check out what was being filmed. Old Guy (my other roommate) and I were secretly hoping it was Gossip Girl (Old Guy likes Blake Lively). We weren't quite lucky last night, but seeing Alexis Bledel was a pretty decent consolation prize. I was always in love with her as Rory Gilmore.

  1. The reason you kept hearing "wooooooos" from the people around you is because you were standing right next to me. and i'm as white as they come.
