I can remember my reaction to hearing Krewella on the radio clear as day. I was driving home from my very first rave and “Alive” started playing. I started screaming and my friends and I blared it through my car. (: I had always listened to them, back when “Strobelights” and the Play Hard EP where released, & I was always a fan of EDM, dubstep, etc. My first rave was amazing & I remember as I drove home listening to Krewella that the atmosphere of this music was more then just what it seemed. I became more familiar with Krewella and saw many videos and many social networking posts on how they started off as a simple group into the amazing EDM group they are today.
When I found out they were going to be in Camden, New Jersey, I had wanted tickets immediately! However, with trying to help support my family and help us get by, my hopes to going were slowly fading. A week before the concert, Wired 96.5 began giving a way tickets for the concert, and every hour upon hour, I was trying to win. My boyfriend and I tried for days, & eventually we FINALLY made it through. I remember crying (as crazy as it seems) when I won because it was something I truthfully wanted to be part of and do for me.
On November 1, 2013, I finally saw my idols on stage. They made the whole experience so much more then just a concert. They are an inspiration and their music is something that must be taken in. They worked so hard to get where they are and I commend them for everything they have done. Through all the craziness and struggles that go on throughout my life, I’m gonna enjoy the ride. I am going to smile more and be happy with every road I take. Krewella has taught me that, and I will love them for eternity for it. I hope one day I can thank them for it. (:
