Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 9/23-9/29

This is the first time I’ve been on my laptop since I left town on Friday morning for a wedding in New Hampshire. The wedding was super fun with good food, new friends, and some crazy good dance times. I got back in town yesterday and went to see Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, and twenty one pilots that evening. I totally forgot how much fun a big arena show with great production can be. I’m spending today recovering from all the travel and dancing the last few days have held because there is so much stuff going on this week. There is a ton of stuff to see this week including, Hanson, Blackout Party, The Naked and Famous, Dear Boy (first SD show!), Rock the Boat, and The Nervous Wreckords to name a few. Warning:
