In the last two weeks, we have had concert reveals for some big events in our area.
The Western Idaho Fair and the Boise Open (golf) both dropped the names of the acts that will be performing live for the masses.
Mrs. Shife and I felt quite the opposite about our experience.
Hot, crowded, and expensive are not huge selling points.
Not a lot of excitement is generated when I see those names.
The Boise Open is near our house so we get free tickets every year to thank us for putting up with lots of foot traffic invading our neighborhood during the golf tournament.
Since we lived here, we have never had any problems.
We also have never attended any of their concerts because, even for the low, low price of free, the acts were not that appealing to the Shifleys.
This year is a little different as Mrs. Shife is a big fan of two of the groups.
