I just got to see... one of the greatest rock concerts ever ^______^. *feels really happy*

I've been really amped to go to this concert for over a month, ever since I found out about it... because Blindside was on the set list. BLINDSIDE? In JOPLIN, MISSOURI? Oh my god, yes <3. As mah brother's birthday gift to me, since he's completely broke, he got me into the concert for free ^_^. Pretty awesome, since tickets were $15.

Denton's band, The Springs, were on the set list. I was so happy to get to see them playing on stage with such a big band as Blindside-- it made my sisterly-pride well up in bubbly joy for him ^_^. Also, The Radiance Effect played, which is a completely terrific band (and The Springs' bosom-buddy-band). Some other band, called... umm... The Edison something-something also played, and apparently on their way here, someone broke into their band van and stole a ton of money and possessions o.O;;;;. Poor guys. But they still played, and all the other bands were pushing their merchandise table, to hopefully help them make back some money XD.

And then... BLINDSIDE. Oh yes, it was amazing. I don't usually like scream'y rock, but they're awesome. The last time I saw them in concert was... Cornerstone, my junior year of high school... it's been over 4 years @_@;. *feels old* Anyway, the lead singer screamed his heart out, twirled, high-kicked, and just generally put his all into every word that came out of his mouth, that I was sure right after the concert finished, he probably had to go puke his guts out before laying horizontally for a month. So crazy XD. And the guitarist (who, appropriately for that band, looked like Jesus) hurtled himself at the side of the stage, jumped as high as he could, and RAN UP THE WALL a few steps and did a backflip off of the sidewall... sheesh XD. I almost screamed-- the coolness startled me so much XD. His guitar almost flew out of his hands when his neck-strap snapped while he did that XD. AND THERE WAS SO MUCH MOSH-PITTING and CROWD SURFING. I didn't know these Joplin kids were capable of going so crazy-- it made me proud ^_^.

Okay, well anyway, I'm ready to collapse. I got to the concert at 6:30pm, and was on my feet until about 11:30p without reprieve (not to mention I injured my foot at work on Thursday, so I've been a mean-hobbling-machine), so my legs are like GO TO SLEEP, AND LET ME REST DAMN YOU. So I'll do just that, and hope I'll be able to even walk tomorrow, since I have work ^^;.

OYASUMI ALL! If no one understood anything I was just talking about, don't worry. Just be glad that I'm oh-so very happy with it all ^_^.

*hobbles off to bed*

I'm so envious...we're going to see a freakin' local band when I come to town. Michigan is so not cool!

Did the Radiance Effect used to be called Any Day Now? The line up looks pretty similar, and if so, they did kick ass back in the day. Noa and I bought their homemade t-shirts; they were very pimp.

I'll probably get to Missouri on the 26th, pretty late, I think. Then, I think we're staying until the 1st, but I have to spend that day with my Grandma, yo!

We may and may not be doing the Halloween thing at my parents' place. My mom said that she thought it was fine, but I've got to clear it with my dad...

I think we're going to get a hotel room. I really, really, don't want to stay with my family. They don't seem to want me to stay with them either, and I definitely don't want to stay in my grandmothers RV like they thought we should. That's so hickish! I just don't know if we should rent a room in Joplin or MV. MV would probably be better if we're going to go to Springfield a lot...

I miss you. I can't wait to do the bear dance with you. I had a dream that you, Noa, and I were walking with these weird guys and there was a vent in the ground that we found both a 2 and 9 dollar bill. Weird...I'll call you later.

Ugh, this is long. I should have emailed it to you...Oh well, much more fun this way.

Scope out what's goin' on concert-wise when you're here then ^_^.

Hmm... I'm not sure if they used to be called Any Day Now or not... I should call Denton and ask him (although it's noon right now, he's probably still asleep XD). I remember those t-shirts, they were hilarious XD. Their poor mothers.

It doesn't matter what we do-- as long as your company is had! I miss Stallion <3.

Yeah, staying in your Grandmother's RV sounds kinda strange o.O;... but then again, it's FREE! So whatever XD.

That is the greatest dream EVER XDDD. Did you wake up and find the magical 2 and 9 dollar bills in your pocket??? Because that would have been the ultimate XDD.

That sounds so awesome XDDDD

It's been so long since since I've been to a concert DX The last one I went to was two years ago... and that was for a death metal band (Jpop turned me into a softie LOL XD)

You should go to a concert sometime soon, then! Concerts are so much fun-- but life is so hectic lately, that it's hard to find much time for stuff like that ^^;.

I KNOW. My past only-rock-loving-self is horrified for the most part by my now jpop-loving self XD;. But... jpop is like a disease, I swear XD;.

I don't know any of the bands, but it seems like you had so much fun so I'm happy for you! ^_____^ *hugs you so*

Looking back on this post makes me happy about that concert again ^o^.

Ne, Helen, have you ever been to a concert? *wonders* I've probably asked you this before, sorry if I have XD;.

I have! Just one and it was well worth it. I went to a fairly new'ish con called PMX (Pacific Media Expo) and Nami Tamaki as well as TM REVOLUTION performed. ^_^ Is how I got the shiny little... postcard-sized thing for you. ^______^
