We Gonna Let It Burn

In my last post I mentioned that I was going to see Ellie Goulding live, and I'm finally reporting back on how it went.
Everyone always told me that she is amazing live and how flawless her voice is, and I can now testify to that. It's unreal how on pitch she remained throughout the entire concert. To see her perform live is definitely an experience! Plus, the location of where we saw her was pretty awesome too. It's called the Revolution Center and it's located right outside Boise. Corina and I had general admission tickets, so we crowded our way forward in the standing section to get a good view.
However, before the concert...we had to get there.
And we had some fun on our way! Here are some photos I felt like sharing.
I've shared about this place before, called Freak Alley, in a previous Boise post. I always enjoy visiting this alley because of the amazing graffiti and street art that's painted on the walls. Not to mention it's continually getting changed, so it's a shifting alley of art!
While downtown, I insisted we find Urban Outfitters (which led to hilarity since we were completely lost, just wandering the beautiful downtown streets of Boise). Eventually we found it, and parted with some pretty pennies to get some new pretties for ourselves. Sadly, the two photos above do not consist of what went in my shopping bag. You'll see soon though - I'm quite excited about some Coachella-esque shorts I scored on clearance! 
Haha, the above collage consists of our roadtrip diet. Halfway there, we made a pit stop at a Walmart to grab snacks since neither of us had eaten yet. To make ourselves feel better, we threw in a couple healthy apples to our junk food mix. Hehe, we had to make fun of ourselves for that.
The concert was supposed to start at 8, and when we got to the Revolution Center at 6, the line was just starting to wrap around the building. We hopped in line, and got stamped. My hand was X'ed since I'm not 21 yet...sigh. Haha, next year, concerts will probably get more interesting for me ;)
However, we finally got in and crowded towards the front of the stage.
Ellie's opening acts were spot on (Lovelife and Conway = amazing!), and built the energy of the crowd beautifully for her entrance. When she appeared onstage, everyone went fairly berserk. Thank goodness I had Corina with me in the crowd - she was an awesome bodyblocker and pushed for some room for us. 
I'm honestly surprised that Ellie would make an appearance in Idaho - at such a tiny concert house no less. I had no idea what to expect from the place since I'd never been inside, but when we stepped into the dimly lit floor, I immediately loved it. There was a nice set up in front for the stage and lights, and upstairs seating for the VIP. However, most everyone was on the floor or in line at the bar in the corner. Blacklights were on, casting eerie glows off colorful and white clothing. The crowd was slowly forming at the stage, so Corina and I set ourselves up in the middle and slowly, more people arrived and pressed at our backs. Thank goodness we had gotten there so early! That's the only reason we had such a good spot.
I feel so lucky to have been able to attend two concerts already this year, and recently, I made the decision to attend a third. You know the Paramore and Fall Out Boy Momentour? Looks like I'll be going to Utah with two other friends in August! Haha, this year is shaping up to be a fun one.

Overall, I can definitely see why Ellie Goulding is a girl so many people develop fan crushes on. She's my new woman crush, that's for sure!
Oh, and random fun tidbit: Aaron Paul was at the same concert! :D
I think Ellie's face sums it all up.
