This was so last minute! i thought it wasn't real at first and i remembered i submitted an email to this contest like right after i came back from destin, fl. I was so stoke i won!!! i have never won anything in my life and that i got like three tickets to see them for the fourth time!! gosh i am so much in love with the bravery they have helped me get through so many things in college and expand my creativity. i never thought i would find a band that have touch my life so much in many ways!
Well at the show, they made us sit outside for quite some time while the band was being interview. Just waiting and waiting until finally they let us all in at once. I was pretty close well as always i'm still behind just one row of people!! but i was in the same spot as i was at the Feb show in roxy just right at the view of Sam and Dirt sigh.... such gorgious guys!!
anyways... the drummer, Anthony, and the guitarist, Mike Z was jammin to some cool gypsy/jazz stuff as Sam joined in their jammin session while in between takes. it was pretty cool they played some Aerosmith and some other stuff hehe. they were hilarious when they had sound problem as the keyboardist, John was complaining, "This is really loud as Hell!!" haha
So on the show they played 6 songs it was An honest mistake, Believe, This is Not the End, The Ocean, Time Won't let me Go, and Unconditional. haha well the unconditional is their finale and they told us the first time they played it we had to pretend unconditional was the real finale of the show haha. first they taped the band themselves along with the background sound of us dancing, wooing, and singing to them. then they made us go outside to move the cameras and shoot it again with the same song but this time it was at us!! 0_o..... well one camera was right close to my angle view lol i was like uh... well i just kept looking at the band and just bust out my dancing moves and just singing their songs out loud!
Oh how i adore them and intimate shows!! the cool thing was there was only 20 audience members including me and my two other friends!! this was way too awesome to end this school year especially my undergraduate year!!! XD this was a great timing since i'll be graduating saturday!! what an awesome graduation present ^_^
