erraticonstilts: (gerard way - hollow point smile)
hey! i haven't posted a real update in approx a million years, so i figured i should get on that. but that is not this entry. this is about seeing mcr this past saturday :D

i went to see them in indianapolis. i was at the venue in my seat by 7:15, so i got to see some of matt and kim. i'm not sure about their music, but i really like them! they're very enthusiastic, especially kim. she got up on her kick drum a number of times and i was worried it would fall over, but all was well. in between sets they played music videos, mostly blink-182 but they showed some of na na na and sing as well.

and thennnn, the bli video started and mcr came out on stage! i had a pretty good seat, and i had a nice view of them the whole time. they were AMAZING, it was a seriously good show. they were all on. frank was especially wild, and gerard brought the camp, including a number of high kicks and fist pumps during the set, hahaha. frank started out with the green guitar but switched halfway through na na na. mikey also used a different bass for the first few songs before switching to the awesome sparkly one. oh! and frank, gerard, and ray all have the light up mic stands now. and they change colors! pink and blue and orange-ish. they're pretty fantastic. gerard also had us all sing happy birthday to mikey. i like how he didn't announce whose birthday it was, he just started singing haha.

there was a lot of talking in the dead mic (so glad we know what that is now!), and frank and gerard interacting between songs. also! you know how gerard sings "la la la" at the end of mama? when i watched the video of that at rock en seine i noticed someone was singing really high la la la's along with him, but you could only see gerard and mikey at that part in the video so i didn't know who it was. i made sure to pay attention this time, and it's totally frank! either that or it's like a backing track, because frank and gerard were the only ones singing at that time. watch the video, the la la la's crack me up :D

erraticonstilts: (mcr - let this world explode)
there's an article about mcr in the new issue of rolling stone. basically just gerard, but it talks about his geek self and his study and "the jaunty, sexy thing" he does with his hips, so you know i enjoyed it. anyway, (very large) scans under the cut )

feel free to post to [ profile] mcr_unofficial if you're so inclined. i probably would but i have to leave for a concert!
erraticonstilts: (lady gaga - show me your teeth)

Day 05 | Your favorite quote )

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
-Dr. Seuss

i love this quote; it was my quote in our yearbook senior year of high school. it's something i try to remind myself of often. also worth mentioning:

"Be yourself, don't take anyone's shit, and never let them take you alive."
-Gerard Way

i love that crazy man <3333
erraticonstilts: (cobra starship)
on tuesday night, i saw cobra starship! they're always so much fun, and this was no exception. the venue was insanely tiny, which was awesome. i have no opinion on the opening bands, but i wasn't really paying attention. anyway, cobras were very fun and entertaining and attractive. setlist: )

i'm going out of town tomorrow to visit my sister in kansas, so i won't be around till sunday/monday. have a nice weekend!
erraticonstilts: (frank/gerard - burning bright)
five things meme, under here )

also, i'm going to see cobra starship tomorrow! let me know if you're also going.
erraticonstilts: (gerard way - pornface)
okay so, probably only like two of you will care, but friday i saw incubus in concert! )
erraticonstilts: (fall out boy - priorities)
wednesday was my two year bandom anniversary! i'm so glad i'm in this fandom; it's so much fun, and i've met a lot of great people. and i owe it all to pete wentz, haha.

also, last friday i saw fall out boy in concert )
erraticonstilts: (fall out boy - priorities)
i'm going to see fall out boy and cobra starship tomorrow!! :D i'm going with my cousin and her roommate in indianapolis, and i'll probably be gone the whole weekend. i'm so excited, it's been way too long since i've seen them, especially fob.

also, i bought my ticket for the american idol tour! it's not super close, but it's not super far, either. ADAM LAMBERT. IN PERSON. OMG. and kriiiis, and allison and matt, and everyone else. i can't wait.

i feel like i had more to say, but i guess not. have a nice weekend! ♥
erraticonstilts: (gerard/lyn-z - sparkly unicorn love)
hello friends, new and old! *waves* some day soon i will make an intro post, but that is not this day.

i'm so excited about fall out boy touring! and with cobra starship and metro station (i kind of love them, idc). it's been entirely too long since i've been to a concert. i've had to resort to playing music loudly and dancing in my room, which is fun but i'd like to do it smooshed in with a bunch of sweaty people. and i'd like to see msi in chicago. i probably won't, but it's nice to think about.

GERARD WAY. i bow down to your obvious superior geekery. it's even more extensive than i'd imagined, and let me just say it makes me love you even more.

i'm friends with both jimmy and chantal on facebook! chantal was having people send her pics of their pets and naming them for them, haha. ilher. and from recent pics (thank you, fb-ers, for tagging jimmy in your concert photos) it seems lyn-z is not on tour, which is kind of sad but i understand.

also, these two pics of lyn-z )

oh, and i think i'm going to see the fob concert at the movies tomorrow. it's at the theater by my house, i kind of have to go. plus, it'll be exciting to see them on the big screen!
erraticonstilts: (frank iero - leathermouth)
so leathermouth is opening for the msi shows in december? excuse me while i die of jealousy. i feel like those frank/gerard/lyn-z fics i've read are going to be canon now, haha. i do not have an appropriate icon for this. the three of them need to be in a picture together like, yesterday.
erraticonstilts: (frankie/gee - we'd be a walking disaster)
on saturday i saw matt nathanson in concert! here in nashville. you guys, he is so amazing and adorable and hilarious. his stage banter is the best ever. i wish i could remember all the funny things he said but alas, it was too much. but anyway. jessie baylin was the opener; she was pretty good, not really my thing but enjoyable.

then matt came out! he is very personable and seems very comfortable, and he really gets into the music. he's got some nice dance moves too; i like the way he moves his hips (if you've seen the video for come on get higher, you'll know what i mean). he talked about a bunch of different things, like how la is nashville with a tan, and how he hopes someone has sex while listening to his song, still (lies. that was some other song. still was the song he said was about naked time, not naked time by yourself, but naked time with another person). he said that some song was like the first episode of this season of gossip girl, and that he not so secretly loves meet the kardashians, and that those of us with class don't know what he's talking about haha. oh, and he told us that one of his songs (princess?) was almost exactly like that song jessie's girl with a few changes. in the middle of singing it he broke into jessie's girl for a while, it was pretty cool.

i can't remember all of what he sang, but i do know he sang:
car crash
heartbreak world
wedding dress
to the beat of our noisy hearts
bent (i think)
detroit waves
church clothes
come on get higher
answering machine

have some pics and vids )

so yes, it was a v awesome time, would see again.

i'm leaving for florida tomorrow and coming back probably on monday, so i won't be around till then. have a lovely weekend!
erraticonstilts: (msi will turn you wicked gay)
so i saw msi in concert on sunday and tuesday. i'm putting both recaps in the same post, and i'll try not to make it too long, but the second show was THE BEST CONCERT EVER, so i might get carried away haha.

the first concert was in memphis, and while waiting outside in line i talked a bit to this girl and her mom. apparently they go to a lot of shows together, i thought that was pretty cool. then i was inside, about four rows back near the middle. i chatted with this guy and girl and convinced the girl she should go to the birmingham show also. we made vague plans to meet up there since we'd both be going alone. i also ended up next to these three girls i'd talked to in the parking lot. one of them was so tiny, i admired her bravery haha. there were also these two annoying hot topic teenie girls right in front of me who talked very loudly about inane things and who almost got in a fight with a few different people. like, the one girl was bitching at the guy in front of her because he was apparently touching/squishing her? if you think you're going to be near the front in the middle of the pit at a msi (or bascially any) show and not get touched, you're seriously deluded. everyone around them was like, welcome to concerts! by this point, the daughter i'd talked to earlier was right next to me. this girl squeezed in front of us and kept hitting us with her purse (she kept switching which shoulder it was on), and we made faces at each other and mentioned how annoying it was when people brought purses to shows like this and how ridiculous it was to think you weren't going to get bumped into. she stayed next to/behind me the whole show; we helped each other not lose our spot.

the first band was dearestazazel. i liked them more this time than the first time i saw them, but idk if i can take them seriously (they have songs called "get on board the drug train" and "she sells sex by the sea shore," seriously). they're pretty entertaining, though.

the next band was die so fluid, who i knew nothing about and ended up really liking. they have a female lead singer/bassist; she wore this tight sparkly body suit that was kind of awesome. there was a lot of interaction between her and the guitarist, like standing back to back or close front to front, or one of them going down on their knees in front of the other. i enjoyed it all.

then it was time for msi )

vids )

pics )

tuesday was the concert in birmingham. i got there about an hour before the doors opened and met up with the girl from the other show. the cool thing about this venue is they have a bar that opens before the doors are supposed to, so you can wait inside instead of outside. i was the fourth person in line! concert buddy and i chatted with the two people in front of us. the girl was a big mcr fan; we talked about gerard's hotness and various hairstyles. then they let us inside and we headed straight for the front. i was on the right of the four of us, basically right where lyn-z would be. the other cool thing about this venue is there wasn't a barricade! we were touching the stage, which was pretty low, like right below my crotch. here's a picture to give you an idea of the closeness: ridiculous. i was next to these four drunk guys and their sober friend. two of the guys started making out, and one of them kept asking random people to kiss him. no thanks. they were kind of annoying, but i mostly ignored them.

i always get nervous before a concert, and the whole day i'd been extra nervous (so nervous i couldn't really eat, which means i had to be pretty freaking nervous, heh), and it got worse in the hour we had to wait for the show to start, but it was more nervous excited. dearestazazel opened again, and i decided i kind of like them. well, i think i like them more than their music, but still. the bassist was right in front of me; he's really energetic and jumps around a lot. and sweats like whoa, i definitely got sweat droplets on me, ha.

pics )

then die so fluid came out. the singer was right in front of me; we made eye contact a couple times, which was awkward but cool. i still really enjoyed them. pics )

then msi came out! i'd never been in the front row before; they were so close, it was insane. i've totally been ruined for all other concerts. so yes, they were supremely awesome.

pics, vids, and rambling under the cut )

and because i'd been wondering about it, and i bet other people were too ([ profile] turnyourankle, i think you asked about it), i asked lyn-z about the tattoo on her thigh. she laughed and said it was something she drew and got done when she was seventeen, and that she'd thought it looked tribal haha. then i thanked her and left. i'm very glad i decided to go to this show, and even though i'm sore and bruised it was definitely the best of the five times i've seen them. &msi;

oh wow. if you made it all the way through that, i'll give you, idk. sexual favors ;)
erraticonstilts: (lyn-z/steve - takedown)
so i saw msi on tuesday! they were fucking awesome, as usual. when i was waiting to get a drink, i heard a couple security guys talking (they were a little bit down the bar from me) about how weirdly the msi fans were dressed, and something about being on e and i was like, ummm, you know i can hear you, right? it was kind of funny, though. one of the girls next to me inside was wearing a mcr shirt, and later on during the show she said she was jealous of lyn-z's legs, ha. i was like, yes, i think we all are ;) so the first band, i am the dream, really sucked. the next band was dearestazazel, who were better but still not that good. then came innerpartysystem, who i enjoyed at lollapalooza and who were even better this time. i ended up buying their cd.

then msi finally came out. lyn-z really did cut her hair; it's right above her shoulders in the back and a little longer in the front. i like it, and her new stage outfit. i wasn't as close as i wanted to be, but the crowd was calmer than last time. people weren't really trying to shove their way to the front, so i wasn't squished, which was nice. here's the setlist: )

videos )

pics )

and that's it. i'm seeing them again october 12, woo!
erraticonstilts: (mindless self indulgence)
so, msi totally ROCKED MY FACE OFF. i arrived at the venue like, an hour later than i'd wanted to, but there actually weren't too many people in line yet, so it was fine. i get inside and head downstairs to where the stage is, and i notice the right side is filled with large, tall guys. i head over there anyway, because i wanted to be on lyn-z's side. by the time julien-k (apparently the side project of some members of orgy. i remember i always had to change the channel when this certain music video of theirs came on, bc it was ~inappropriate) come out, i'm about five or so rows back. i'd never heard of them before, but they weren't too bad. not really bad at all. but the lead singer reminded me of a sleazy miami shady businessman, with his slicked back hair, gold necklace, and partially unbuttoned shirt, so i couldn't really take him seriously.

i was a little closer by the time the birthday massacre came out. i downloaded some of their music after i saw them with msi last month, and i really like them. the lead singer is totally adorable, she's really great to watch. and they have a guy playing keytar! and one of the guitarists (or maybe the bassist, i couldn't really tell) kept spitting water on people. oh, and flinging water at us...i got hit in the face various times. it felt nice though, since it was pretty freaking hot.

before msi came out, a group of people started chanting "anal sex," which appparently is/used to be the thing to do? and various other sexual things. it was mainly the little boys and girls right behind me...idk, it got old pretty fast.

but then, msi finally came out! cut for length and flailing )

now for some videos )

pictures )
erraticonstilts: (cobra starship)
so, the cobra starship concert! we had to wait in line for a while, and i made friends with these two girls who go to clemson university. i happened to find them again once we all got inside, and we decided to stick together. they invited me to go to warped tour in atlanta with them, but i'm going to be out of town D: anyway, first up was this band called deluxe, who sang in spanish, which was cool, but it was loud and they sang pretty fast, so i couldn't understand what they were saying. then came the secret handshake, who were pretty good.

then, we the kings. before they came out some girls started screaming, and i noticed trace cyrus was walking across the stage. then they started playing, and i could see trace watching from behind the drums. from the angle he was looking and where i was standing, it looked like he was STARING RIGHT AT ME, haha. he came out later and sang, at the end of a song that has a lot of "whoaaaaa"s in it. i enjoyed we the kings, i think they put on a good show. after their set, gabe came out from backstage and got low for us, haha. he also popped his head out the backstage door with his :D face on.

and then, it was time for cobra starship! )

oh and also, i'm going to make a proper post about it tomorrow, but tonight i saw mindless self indulgence! i got to meet lyn-z omfg. i had to say something, because i've been freaking out about it and there's no one here to freak out with!
erraticonstilts: (mindless self indulgence)
i am done with college! well, i don't graduate till saturday, but monday was my last exam and i turned in my essay (that one damn essay that i've been complaining about like, all semester) yesterday, so no more work! it hasn't sunk in yet. i don't think it will sink in till august when i don't have to go back to school, heh. i picked my cousin up from the airport tonight. she's never been here before, so i'm going to show her around and stuff. i think we're going to the beach tomorrow. the rest of my family gets here on friday, and then saturday is graduation, and i think i'm spending a few more days in florida before i drive to nashville (with my sister, so i won't be alone), so i probably won't be around much for the next week. just so you know.

last night i saw mindless self indulgence in concert! )

wow, i should really get to bed, since we're getting up at 10am to go to the beach.
erraticonstilts: (panic! at the disco - pretty odd)
okay, the panic concerts! on friday i met up with [ profile] musicislife428 (valerie) and [ profile] yeaabihhmolly (molly) and her friends to get in line for the cd signing. i spent the time in line trying to thinking of what to say to panic, and when it was my turn i still had no idea what to say! valerie was in front of me, and she was asking jon about the images behind them when they play and that was all i could think about. that and inappropriate things i'd never ask them about, heh. so i met jon and spencer and just smiled and said thanks after they signed my cd cover. then i came to ryan, and he looked up at me and i could see his eyes through his sunglasses, and i blurted out something like "you guys were really great last night." he smiled and said thanks, and i felt kind of stupid but whatever. then i got to brendon, and he was like, "hi how are you doing!" it was the most enthusiastic greeting i'd ever received haha. i liked how they all looked me in the eye and smiled. they didn't look bored or like they'd rather be somewhere else, which i appreciated. so that was me meeting panic! ha.

so, the concert part. phantom planet played first. they were okay, nothing too memorable. the singer jumped into the crowd and crowd surfed at the end, which was pretty cool. then came the hush sound! they were awesome; i wish they'd played for longer. greta is so adorable! i had so much fun watching her bounce around at her piano haha.

setlist )

then came motion city soundtrack. i've discovered that i really don't like them. the first night i got there late so i hung out on the side before venturing down to the floor after they finished, but the second night i was there the whole time. it was fine at first, only a few pushy people, but once mcs came out the crazy surging/people falling down part began. molly and her friends had left after phantom planet to meet them, and sometime during mcs's set valerie and i were separated. i somehow wound up multiple times next to a stupid overprotective boyfriend and his girlfriend, and every time the crowd surged i was shoved into his abnormally pointy elbows. and by shoved into i mean he purposely jabbed me. i get that you don't want to be moved but man, you gotta give a little. i hate how they stand there with their arms circled around their girlfriends, trying to create a large bubble of personal space in the middle of the pit. if your gf is so ~delicate that she can't be bumped into even a little bit, then she shouldn't be in the fucking pit! god. uhh, and that's my rant on overprotective boyfriends!

finally panic came out. they're so great; (especially the first night, when i was away from the crazies) i couldn't help smiling the entire time. and i laughed every time i looked at ryan, haha. i liked how it was almost like two different shows; the songs were all the same but most of the banter in between songs was different. i also liked how the fever songs were more acoustic. here's the setlist: )

do you know what i hate? giant bugs on tv. you know those orkin commercials, where a giant bug shows up at people's houses and tries to get inside? that's like my worst nightmare. it's like this music video i saw a long time ago (i think i told monia about it), where these animated bugs were the band, and at one point one of them (i think it was a flea?) was dreaming or something, and he was human sized and having sex with this chick, idek. it creeped me the fuck out. same thing in king kong, where those giant bugs are attacking/eating them. dnw giant bugs, kthx.

speaking of creepy, let me tell you about this dream i had a couple weeks ago. somehow a treefrog got stuck in the side of my hand, right under my pinkie, so just its head was sticking out. it freaked me out, and i tried not to hit it on anything. i think i thought that'd make it more real. my roommate told me the same thing had happened to her before, and she'd waited a few weeks before doing anything about it. that was not okay with me, and i went right away to find someone to get rid of it. somehow i opened the area it was in further, and the lady i went to took a knife and dug the frog out of there. i woke up feeling creeped out. it still creeps me out to think about it.

okay, i should go finish my research paper. that was due yesterday D: it's gonna be hard, because today was the last day of class and i really do not care anymore.
erraticonstilts: (my chemical romance)
i'm back! and now, epic recap post of doom )

day two )

wow, that was probably tl;dr. i got a bit carried away, haha. but i wanted to get down all the details possible, to relive it later on or something. to sum up: best concert(s) ever!

EDIT: some pretty cool pics here.
erraticonstilts: (mcr - old school shenanigans)
tomorrow i see mcr in concert!! i've been freaking out about it at random times all week, mostly internally. my flight's at 8am, meaning i have to leave at 5am to get to the airport an hour before my flight. i'm going to be so tired but i don't care! plus it means burger king for breakfast (i only let myself get bk for breakfast when i'm flying out in the morning. self-control woo! :P). i won't be back till saturday, so goodbye till then!

idk why it took me so long to start listening to the hush sound. i've had their first album downloaded for months but only got around to listening to it on monday. i really like them! and now i'm excited about seeing them with patd next week.

ahhh, i'm leaving in five hours and i haven't yet finished the essay i said i'd finish before i left. eh, i'm okay with it.
