I got my first hint that summer's almost here this past weekend by attending an outdoor concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
I had forgotten how much I loved listening to music with the sunset and then stars as a backdrop. How an outdoor arena can seem at once vast and intimate.
It brought back numerous memories of concerts at the Greek Theater, Central Park, and even some ballfields and race tracks.
Sure, it got chilly as the evening wore on, and yes, the whole exit process was jammed packed enough to make even a non-claustrophobic hyperventilate. But the outdoor ambiance made a wonderful night seem magical.
So how about you? Do you have great memories of outdoor concerts, too?
