Daughter: Live at the Corona

Last night was the night. The Daughter concert had officially arrived, and it was amazing. One of my good friends, Tiana, and I spent the day downtown, but headed to the venue at around 3:30 to wait in line to get front row. It was so much fun, and thank god it was a warm day because we waited outside for a good three and a half hours.

The concert started at 8pm, and we were front row, right in the centre! The opening band was a local find, Pang Attack. They were excellent! Reminded me a bit of The National, another great band. They played all the best songs from their newest EP, Dreamer’s Drug.

Daughter came on at around 9pm. Words can’t even describe how amazing they were. The time flew by, it felt as though they only played for five minutes! They performed with such passion and intense emotion, it was so beautiful. I was blessed to be in their presence.

Once the concert had ended, we stepped outside and ended up meeting the opening band. The best part, after the concert that is, was actually being able to meet Daughter. First, we met the bassist/keyboardist, Luke Saunders, and he was so sweet and polite. He singed my concert ticket, and we got to snap a pic together.

It really became the perfect night after I met lead singer Elena Tonra. She, playing a huge role in my life and being one of my greatest inspirations of all time, was such a beautiful person. Kind, sweet and extremely humble. I was so happy to have been able to meet her, speak to her, and even take a photo together. She too signed my ticket stub, and after I got the opportunity to hug her and tell her how much she meant to me, my life was complete.

It was truly one of the best nights of my life, and I am so grateful to have such an amazing friend who came along with me on my wonderful adventure. Special thanks to my dad as well, who waited around until I met Elena, and filmed the entire meet!
