Episode Information

"For Bros About to Rock" is the twenty-fifth episode of the first season of The Loud House.

Plot

Lincoln is going to his first rock concert, and Luna is determined to make it the greatest experience ever.

Synopsis

Lincoln and Clyde are excited to go to their first concert of their favorite band SMOOCH at the mall, but just as Lincoln is about to leave, he's startled to see his sisters (minus Luna) behind him. They push him back into his room to tell him not to let Luna know that he's going to his first concert, since she'll insist on tagging along, and will probably ruin his experience, just like she did at all of their first concerts. After Lincoln's sisters manage to help him out of the house without Luna knowing, he meets up with Clyde at the mall. However, they're surprised to see Luna already in line for tickets, since she already knew about the concert, and saved them a spot in line.

Luna immediately tries to train Lincoln and Clyde for their best concert experience, including dressing them up and teaching them to pose like rockers. After embarrassing him one time too many, Lincoln calls Luna out on her attitude. Saddened by her brother's harsh words, Luna walks out of the line. Lincoln feels guilty, and tries to run after her, but loses his place in line. He and Clyde are forced to go to the end of the line, and by the time they finally get to the box office, the concert is sold out. To make matters worse, Lincoln and Clyde try to get tickets from who they believe is a scalper, but is really an undercover mall cop, and they promptly get arrested and thrown into the mall jail.

Luna finally succeeds in making a first concert unforgettable.

Later, Luna tries to get Lincoln and Clyde out by dressing up as her mother after the Mall Cop Captain called about them getting locked up, but Bobby, who is working at the mall as a cop, inadvertently blows her cover, leading her to get thrown in with the kids. Luna apologizes to Lincoln and admits that she only wanted his first concert to be memorable because she wanted him to feel like she did when she attended her first concert back when she was young. The Mall Cop Captain, touched by Luna's story, decides to let the three out, and gives Lincoln and Clyde their tickets to the concert back, and even Luna a spare ticket upon Lincoln's request. Lincoln apologizes to Luna for the things he said, which she happily accepts his apology, and the kids go to the concert. Unfortunately, the tickets are for seats way high up, making it hard to see the band, but thanks to Luna's teachings, Lincoln and Clyde make it down to the stage, and they all end up having the time of their lives.

Errors

  • Lola sounds a bit like Lana when she was warning Lincoln about Luna ruining their first Blarney the Dinosaur concert (since they're both voiced by the same actress).
