Green Day punks Tampa Bay as the Rabid One gets his world rocked (Video)

She wore her skirt a little too short and her hair a little too long.  The Punk Rock Princess was and eleventh hour replacement when a cute friend bailed on the tickets.  I braved the shark infested waters of Craigslist, expecting one of two results: hepatitis or the rare meaningful reply.  I scored the latter of the two.

The opening moments of Green Day’s show closely mirrored those that were to conclude the evening:  pulse pounding, earth shaking frenzy, and a storm of chaos and perfection.  The Punk Princess’ strawberry hair danced in front of my wide eyes as the beat controlled our helpless bodies.  At some point between songs our bodies gave out and she collapsed in my arms.

[image-1]Her panties read “try me,” which I discovered when she teased the boys and girls around us.  That could be how we sneaked into the floor section among the hungry Green Day fans.  Going into the action with her was like test driving the sleekest and fastest car on the autobahn.

When the show ended I pleaded for an encore and wasn't disappointed, but even that was over all too quickly.  Our bodies were both sore, and our voices were hoarse. The Punk Rock Princess and I exchanged playful grins, her eyes beaming.  Green Days' Tampa appearance was a one night stop on a whirlwind tour, much like that of my new acquaintance and I.  And though the show was extremely fulfilling, I wouldn’t mind being a part of it again down the road.

You can’t beat an ass kicking rock concert with a female bombshell.  Monday night Green Day, the Rabid One and a Punk Rock Princess I met on Craigslist almost melted down the former Ice Palace. (CL PHOTO review here) The Grammy winning band, last in Tampa four years ago on the 'American Idiot' tour, showed us why we missed them so much.  And the stranger I took showed me just how much I miss wild nights without expectations.
