This past weekend I took the bus down to London and saw Fall Out Boy at the O2 arena (as well as doing my tourist thing).

EDIT: I forgot to show off the shirt I made! I designed it, cut the stencil out of freezer paper, and used spray-on fabric paint and bleach with the stencil. The original design has a lot more text and looks like a movie poster--beneath 'America's Suitehearts' I had 'DOING LINES OF DUST AND SWEAT JUST TO FEEL LIKE YOU!' in smaller text, and under 'BOYCOTT LOVE' I had 'CHANGE WILL COME/03.06.09' in smaller text. At the bottom was 'Mr. Sandman*H. Shoe Crab*Mr. Benzedrine*Donnie the Catcher' in the style of movie poster acting credits, with the first names stacked above the surnames. Alas, it was not to be--I didn't have the time, and I thought the text was too small to stencil well, anyway.

I hadn't heard anything by Sing It Loud or Hit the Lights prior to the show, and had heard one Forever The Sickest Kids song in a Hot Topic. Add to that the intensity of the pit and all those sets were kind of a blur. The Sing It Loud guys were very energetic--actually, all of them were very energetic. I'm going to try to check them out.

This was my first pit experience, and wow. That shit gets crazy. There must have been a lot of people there for the openers, though, because it got a lot calmer before Cobra. It was calmer--in a sane way, not in a no-one-is-having-fun way--even during their set. I started the evening in the fourth row and got pushed back a little, but was in the third row for the Cobras.

They were amazing. Gabe was hilarious/sexy, Vicky-T was super sexy, and Ryland was awesome. Apparently the singer for SIL used to be their merch guy. He came out to sing Beckett's part on Snakes On A Plane. They shortened some songs and the set list, and didn't do an encore, so I hope Gabe's doing ok and not overworking his voice.

It only took me 4 days this time! Sweet! Maybe I'll even get some GCH pictures up before this weekend.

So last night I went to see Of Montreal at the Carolina Theatre. We thought we were pressing out luck on time--we were parking around 7:46, and the show started at 8--but the time that would normally be filled with an opener was just...nothing. So we had plenty of time! The show finally started around 8:40, and it was amazing from there on out. I had never seen Of Montreal in concert before, and hadn't looked up past concerts before going. Um, wow. These cats get really into it. )

Of Montreal! love!

Hey, here's my super-late concert report! I went to the 8/19 Dance Across the Country show at the Greene Street Club in Greensboro, NC. The Hush Sound headlined, preceded by The Cab, Steel Train, and The Morning Light. warning, under-the-cut is very media heavy )
