Friday Night Live – Old Hat – Same Old Thing?

Well, Belmont sure changes, and stays the same, as time goes by. Evidence Friday Night Live, a production of the downtown merchants asssociation. Beach music, beach music, and more beach music.

Doesn’t everyone get enough of beach music by going to the same place every summer?

Apparently not.

Belmontians have never been too adventurous in their 115 year history.

Why change when it is fun to dance to “Carolina Girls”, over and over and over and over?   

Granted, it has been exceptionally hot this summer, but do the people in this video really look like they are having fun? 

To us, they look just a bit bored. Did you see us in the video? We were there, sweating and trying to look sociable.

A couple of years ago, there was an attempt to mix up the music a bit when Swamp Da Wamp played at one of the Friday Night Live events. Good ‘ol Southern Rock & Roll, and uh, yeah, Bikers. Guess that made the PO-lice and city elders a bit nervous when hundreds of sweet motorcycles parked in the downtown area.

Well, go with the tried and true we suppose…

Since every town around is now doing the same thing, wouldn’t it be nice to step out and do something different for a change?
