My first impression, before the band even started playing, was WOW. The DJ is playing nothing but music that I know all the words to! I was very pleased. I was also pleased that I managed to not topple over in my fabulously sparkly shoes I wore – my first venture out into the world wearing stilletos. Glittery, coppery, testicle piercing stilletos. Wearing my stilletos, I managed to approach the height of most of my friends that I had gone out with.
The band was awesome, and super high energy. I like high energy musics. The show went quickly, and when it was over, I craved more. Because I am insatiable, not because of some
inability on the part of the band to satisfy musically.
Although, interesting sidebar! I realised a huge difference in having a crush on a band when you're like. Sixteen and twenty six. When you're sixteen and some dude in the band sticks his tongue out, you just think its. I don't know. Hardcore or something. You don't get it, but its just apart of the rock star mystique and you accept.
When you're twenty six and same [attractive] guy in the band sticks his tongue out, and you catch yourself thinking 'Damn, he can lick the underside of his own chin...' and then your mind goes to a dark place [because some of us just prefer the lights off] and you start to blush.
That could just be me, though.
I enjoy where they've gone with the new album, which, after the show, I of course had to purchase [with monies I borrowed from a friend, since most of my own monies had been spent on the boozeamahol]. Which I got signed, because hey! the band was standing right there by the merch table at that point. And I was given a free poster [which had a $5 sign on them], which I also had signed. I tried to talk to Trevor, but I didn't really have anything interesting to say, and some girls more exuberant than myself distracted him. I got to tell the other band members I enjoyed the show though, and they all seemed pretty nice.
I hope I get the opportunity to see them again, it was a really good time.
And damn, were my shoes sparkly.
You don't know how close I came to posting a video for Sparkle and Shine that is actually a teeny boppy song with Sailor Moon imagery.
I couldn't find a video for Never Enough. This wasn't my favourite song of the evening, but I wanted to post a video with good sound quality that didn't look like crap. I could have posted this video for Never Enough:
but it was the most boring thing in the world, so I thought I'd spare you guys the ennui.
[See what I did there? I'm terrible, it's true]
