After catching a musical performance of a “little” different type (watching my son, Julian, and his classmates rocking out at the Abraham Wing School Spring Concert), I hopped over to the Glens Falls Civic Center to check out the action.

It was nice to see the arena FULL when I came in for the big Godsmack show — and it was early still, as opening act Hellyeah were just finishing their set.

More than 3,000 people attended the show, I was told.

It reminded me a little of the old Adirondack Red Wings days: Elbow to elbow — except the crowd attire was a little different, where the sea of red and white hockey jerseys were now traded for black concert tee-shirts.

The vibe was similar, though — enthusiastic.

Jason Irwin

NAME: Jason Irwin
BAND AFFILIATION: Phillips Head (also WEQX!)
INSTRUMENT: Guitar/vocals

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … I had a KISS “Destroyer” LP growing up, which was handed down to me, and I absolutely loved it. I mean, I know every lyric in that recording still. The first album (um … cassette, actually) that I actually purchased I specifically remember being Quiet Riot “Metal Health.” Bang your head!

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … My parents brought me to see Rick Springfield at SPAC in 1984. He was a wild man, climbing on the speaker stacks and jumping around. I thought that was pretty cool.
