Kids At A Wilco Show

Whoa, many years later, and I'm searching the internet, with my troubling question: "Should I bring my 7-yr old to the Wilco concert next week??" And I'm driving my husband bonkers going back and forth on it.  We have great tickets, it's an outdoor venue, but she can be sensitive to loud sounds/noises, and we're in the 5th row. Am I nuts to even consider bringing her?  

I will say that Stan has been keeping the volumes up pretty high lately, both indoors and out. 

And the Via Chicago cacophony is still there in a big way every night.  

Just be prepared...

And - I even decided to buy 2 more FRONT ROW tickets (for my husband and I) and try to sell my three 5th row tickets. Go big or go home, right? Ha. Kidding.

Yeah, I'm back to thinking "No, I really should leave her home with the family/friends and enjoy the concert with hubby..."  So, I think that's what we'll do.

There was someone in the second row in San Diego with a child that couldn't have been older than five.  She was wearing protective headphones.  Apparently, they worked because she was sound asleep before the main set was over.

Maybe I'm a jackass (okay, I probably am) but I was a little bit annoyed with all the kids, when I went to see Wilco. If you want to take your kids to a concert, go take them to They Might Be Giants, or something like that. There's a time and a place for kids but it isn't a rock concert.

But I just don't like kids in general, so maybe I am biased.

Anyways, my issue at concerts these days isn't the children it's the loud mouth adults. Bring the kiddos, it's one less seat for a drunken boomer or an obnoxious 21 year old (...as I was when I made that post!).

Definitely anyone under the teenage years should wear earphones or ear plugs. The Cruel Country shows I've seen haven't been the loudest shows I've ever been to but Vince is right, the levels are being set pretty high.

Update - We went, I did NOT bring my child and it was FANTASTIC! I was on the rail, made several visual contacts with Jeff, and it was just a terrific, rockin' night.   SO glad I did not bring my child. They would have been crying 1/2 an hour in, or less. I admit I wore ear plugs, because I'm getting old, and I don't fancy losing my hearing.... but I could STILL absolutely hear everything, still very loudly.  :rock
