Jeff Kleinman, dad.
BocaParent reader Jeff Kleinman was among the few poor dads in the squealing tween masses at the Selena Gomez concert Thursday night at Mizner Park amphitheater.
His Twitter stream from the concert was so popular, it started “trending” for the Miami area. As one follower put it, Jeff Kleinman Tweets so you don’t have to. Here are some of our favorites from Jeff’s live stream:
7:45 p.m.: Question of all time: Are 12 port-a-potties and 2 sinks enough for all the tweens/teens and their moms at Selena Gomez concert?!
7:54 p.m.: A pro ticket scalper trying to buy and resell Selena Gomez tickets. “It’s what I do for a living,” he says. No biz for him. “Tough night.”
8:23 p.m.:The Selena Gomez concert is a good place for tween boys to meet tween girls. But there are no boys here. Except some dads.
8:27 p.m.: Teens shrieking. Hearing loss. At Selena Gomez concert.
8:31 p.m.: Is Justin Bieber watching #SelenaGomez perform in Boca? Scanning the crowd.
8:33 p.m.: #SelenaGomez is three songs into her concert. Does she have more than three? The girls are on their chairs. Should I climb on one?
8:52 p.m.: Like, OMG, my spouse is wearing earplugs at the #SelenaGomez concert! Does the snack bar sell those? She came prepared.
9:03 p.m.: A mother sitting next to me at the #SelenaGomez concert never looked up from her phone and now has left. She’s no fan!

9:11 p.m.: The two girls like #SelenaGomez — but LOVE talented opening act Christina Grimmie, a YouTube star.
9:22 p.m.: Wondering if #SelenaGomez is breaking Boca Raton’s noise ordinance.
9:30 p.m.: Dreaming of a Denny’s breakfast after the #SelenaGomez concert!
9:32 p.m.: OMG … I am dancing in the aisle to a #SelenaGomez ditty of which I do not know the name (or understand the words).
9:34 p.m.: “You have been an amazing first audience!” #SelenaGomez just told those rocking in Boca Raton (Mouth of the Rat?) F-L-A!
9:42 p.m.: The crowd is chanting “Selena” at the #SelenaGomez concert. Will she sing one for the parents? Maybe “Yesterday?”
9:45 p.m.: Will #SelenaGomez meet her adoring fans? Where will she eat tonight? Is she staying at the Delray Beach Motel 8?
9:47 p.m.: #SelenaGomez’s finale is … “Magic.” An oldie! “Thank you guys so much for coming out to my first tour ever!” She thanked parents!
9:49 p.m.: #SelenaGomez’s concert is blowing confetti all over Boca! Littering violation!
Thanks, Jeff. We feel like we were there. Who else saw the show and survived? Share your quips in the comments.
