Oh yes. I bet some of you noticed I wasn't here last night and that's because I am awesome and was at yet another concert. And it kicked my ass because I didn't get home until 2:30 am, couldn't fall asleep because I was overtired but dozed off around 4:30 am only to wake up a 6. Got the kids up, Olivia to school, Jack to my mom's and then I was off to work.
Muther fracking rockstar.
Anyways. So Kate and I went to see the Honda Civic Tour when it came to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota and the headliners were Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance. The bonus was that we had Matt & Kim as the opener band it was their first night on the tour in addition to being their first show in an arena setting.
Admittedly, I only know a few Matt & Kim songs but from what I have heard I can say I'm interested. But after seeing them pretty much kill it live? More than interested. They were lively, they were fun and they obviously enjoy what they do.
first MCR concert was in April at First Avenue (despite it being so incredibly fucking hot in there that I thought I was going to pass out from exhaustion and dehydration) because they were amazing at that show. They played an almost two hour set after having fantastic openers, they did an insane justice to their already great music and it solidified me as a fan.
I was super disappointed to not hear "Mama" because it's probably my favorite song of theirs. But they of course did "Black Parade" but I thought they could have kicked ass more on that. Also- I don't know if there was a delay between the sound and the screens, but at a few times I wondered if Gerard was really singing live or if they were using backing vocals.
But they played an amazing set. If you lived under a rock and had no idea they have been on hiatus for awhile doing their own projects for a few years.... you would never know it. They sounded great, they had great stage chemistry still and despite obviously gaining a bit of weight and looking their age.. they are all still incredibly swoon worthy.
What isn't sad is being away from disgusting guy and his girlfriend. Oh, I should mention they both fucking fell asleep during Blink's set and I can't even believe that. So I obviously got a picture of them sleeping. Seriously. I had been up since 4:30 that morning and this was taken around 11 pm, so don't tell me about being tired.
So. Tomorrow is my Dear Sara post so if you have questions of any kind for me, email me at sarastrand9438(at)hotmail(dot)com. No questions are off limits (as someone emailed to ask that) so fire away bitches. Also, if you want to see other pictures from this concert, friend me on Facebook. Or be a loser.
