Intern With a Blog – New Intern, Who Dis?
Oh hello, my name is Eric Davison and I am the marketing intern for Jade Presents this summer. I will be a senior at Minnesota State University Moorhead with a major in… you guessed it, Marketing! At MSUM I try to stay as active on campus as possible. I am a Resident Assistant in Dahl Hall, Film Loop club member, and am the president of our DECA chapter. The plan is to write a couple blogs a month about my time here and showcase the awesome people, places, and things that go around here at Jade Presents.
The first show of the Bluestem Summer Concert Series kicked off last Sunday with Billy Currington as the headliner. The show was a blast to work and even more fun to be a part of the crowd. I have never attended a Bluestem show before, so I will be sharing with you a couple things I learned after my first show.
First, there are no bad spots in the whole venue. The staff gets the chance to roam around and choose where to watch the show. After trying out a bunch of different angles and distances away from the stage to see what was the best spot in the house I found myself gravitating towards the back of the general admission grass area. That was the perfect spot for me. Some people prefer to stand near the back of venues to soak up the whole experience, while others want to be as close as possible to feel the music and see the artist up close. It all comes down to personal preference, but you cannot go wrong with where you sit at this amphitheater.
Another cool thing about Bluestem was how much more of an experience it was other than just the concert itself. I have only been to a few shows in the Twin Cities before so to go to a place that does not just simply funnel you in and out of the venue was refreshing. Gates to this show opened two hours prior to showtime and we had plenty of early birds to soak up the sun, get some great food and have a drink or two. Getting some pizza from Blackbird Woodfire and local beer from Fargo Brewing Company is like a mini night downtown but it is all right before an awesome concert.
Bluestem is a blast and next time you’re there be sure to stop by the information trailer to say hi to your favorite marketing intern!
