Concerts on a School Night

Mateo Roldan-Vasco, Reporter

Being a loyal fan to a favorite artist can be tricky, especially for students, when the artist or musician go on tour and the closest concert is on a school night, and the student is left wondering if it is worth going.

Going to a concert on a school night takes a lot of work if a student plans on going to school the next day. They need to make sure they get all of their homework done and they need to study for any tests that may be administered the following day. In addition, since concerts may run late, they need to set many alarms just so that they can wake up in the morning.

Many people, especially parents, believe that it is not okay to go to a concert on a school night, but that is not the case.

Concerts are a great way to interact with people who share the same interests, and they also release a lot of stressors and worries in someone’s life. When someone is at a concert, he/she usually gets lost in the music during the show.

Frequent concert goer and NHS student Asha Locke (’18) explained, “Going to concerts is a great way to connect with people, and if you can handle the work that it takes to go to school after the concert, then you should go.”

Locke also said that if the student’s work ethic is not the best, it is not the concerts fault for their bad grades, but it is the student’s own fault for failing to keep a good work ethic.

If a student has the opportunity to go to a concert, they should definitely take it, but they should also keep in mind that education is very important, and that they should be prepared for school the next day.

When assignments are due, teachers will not accept the excuse, “sorry I did not do my work, I was at a concert.”
