So tonight was the concert. All together, it was absolutely amazing. Mary and I got there lateish, like at 7:15 ish instead of 7 when the doors opened, so the first band was already halfway done. But they were pretty good, from what we caught. Not really my kind of music, but they were okay. Then we went and found somewhere to stand where I could take some pictures, and the next band was ..Ticker Tape Parade. They were good, they're one of the more well known Arizona bands. After them was Greeley Estates. They were amazing. The lead singer was gorgeous and they were just all around great. Once they were done, Mary and I wandered around and I ended up buying Greeley Estates CD and talking to the lead singer a bit, he was wicked nice. Then we sat near the door and talked for most of Before Braille because they weren't very good. And we were tired and hot. Buuut. Then! We walked back to our little spot where I could take the best pictures and Not Quite Burnadette came on. They were also extremely good. The lead singer reminded me SO FUCKING MUCH of Adam Lazzara, mainly because of his body movements and his mike usage. At the end of the set, the lead singer climbed up to the top and like sung up there for awhile. Hahah but here is the climax of my night.
SCARY KIDS SCARING KIDS. OHMYGOD. Mary and I were watching them set up and were very amused, and then all the lights went out and they were about to come on. And it was totally silent and then the crowd started chanting cause it had been awhile. Then this background music started playing and it had gotten totally silent again and all of a sudden Mary and I realized what it was and we literally SCREAMED "CARMINA BURANA". Nobody will really know why we did that or how funny it really is unless they go to ASA, but yes, it was Carmina Burana. And as the music was getting louder and more exciting the lights started flashing quickly and everytime there was a new band member on stage but you could only get a little glimpse each time. And once they were all on the lights raised slowly and the band is standing there in CRAYON COSTUMES. And they immediatly started playing "Whats up Now" which is my favorite SKSK song. And after about two songs, Pouyan (the keyboardist and most enthuiastic member, also the one I used to know) was all like "These costumes are really fucking awesome, but we're taking them off now cause it's really fucking hot." And four of the members just took em off and had other clothes on, but Pouyan and Chad I think, one of the guitarists, waited. Chad pulled his crayon off first and he had on this leather like outfit on and it was really funny. Then Pouyan took his off and he was wearing nothing but veryverysmall girls panties. Let me just say, they werent really covering everything. It was nice. Anyways, they played their songs and every single one was so absolutely amazing. And once they were done Mary and I left becuase my mom never went in like she was supposed to to talk to Joanne (Pouyans mother).
Worst part of my night? Coming home and having Sandy tell me "Oh, it really sucks that your mom didn't go in because you were going to go backstage and they had a few.. surprises for you." And then I begged her to tell me and after awhile she tells me that they had a signed cd and tons of posters and had this whole plan of what they were going to do that night with me :[
Moral of the story? Scary Kids Scaring Kids OWNS AT LIFE. My mother, on the other hand, ruins my life.
