So one of the things about me is that for the most part I'm not really cut out for live music. My issues are rampant, but it kind of comes down to the fact that being crammed with an incredibly hot, incredibly loud room filled with strangers is generally something I would think of as torture rather than a fun time. I have an anxiety disorder, dude, it sucks. Also I have a short attention span and I get bored and sleepy easily when I am not already familiar with the music being played, which is often the case with opening acts.
(Honestly, before last night, the last concert I had been to was Sleater-Kinney in fall of 2002. Yeah.)
With all of that said? God, the Cobras rocked my world
+ The first band (they were from Seattle; I didn't catch their name) featured a guitar player onstage who was having the time of his life
. It was kind of awesome; we couldn't stop beaming whenever we looked at him, because he was just so into it. Also, the singer took out a tambourine to beat on in a couple of songs, so major points for that.
+ The Cab: Holy shit
, you guys. No, seriously, holy shit. You know how I said earlier I tune out when I don't know the music? It turns out that is not always the case. They blew me away, for real. My sister and I kept turning to each other and being like "Dude!"
Yes, I know you guys have all been waving the Cab flag for weeks/months now, but to be honest, sometimes you guys do that about things that kind of suck sometimes! But, yeah, I'm now converted to the cause. Give me your downloads.
(Also? My sister is completely and utterly in love with Alex Marshall.)
+ We the Kings: did a super entertaining set and were cute. I wasn't bored! I would probably read the two guys who talked being gay together.
+ Cobra Starship: eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
eeeeeeeeeeee. Yeah, that's basically it. THEY CAME THERE TO ME DANCE TONIGHT. IT WAS WONDERFUL. \o/
...That's all I have. Yay Cobras.
+ PERSON WHO RECOGNIZED ME FROM THE INTERNET AND CALLED OUT TO ME ON LINE: I am so sorry, dude! I really didn't mean to blow you off! I was following speshope
and my sister, and I was afraid if I stopped I would lose them and ... die, basically. I looked around inside but didn't see you! Sorry!
+ Hawthorne: hotter than the ninth circle of hell
, my god.
So yeah. It was a good night.
Two more random things: first, can anyone link me to the footage that this picture
comes from? And ... actually, I can't remember what the second thing was, so I'm just going to tell you guys, I keep wanting to describe last story I posted
like "It's mostly
Gerard & Mikey gen, is the thing. It just ... also has a big gay threesome in it!"
THAT'S NOT HOW GEN WORKS. IM DOIN IT WRONG.
Oh, I remember the second thing -- Doctor Who vid to "Bicycle Song", anyone have a link? I want to make my sister watch it. (She loves Doctor Who AND Queen! It's a beautiful combination.)
