A slightly abbreviated glimpse into my GCH concert experience  
Eventually I might actually post all of the pictures from this show. For now you get

The GCH concert: how awesome was it to meet and hang around with Matt and Disashi before the show? Pretty damn cool. They were sweet and funny and ready to take a picture with me practically before I asked them. (y'all have already seen this but it's cute so you get to look at it again!)

PS - Matt is so ADORABLY SWEET!. I'd only given birth 10 days previous to this show. Matt was amazed. Disashi wanted to know why I didn't bring Spencer along. The look that Matt gave Disashi when he asked me was effing priceless.

I took five zillion pictures at this show. Here are a few:

The dude from P.O.S. This man is a tough rapper *cough* sweetheart *cough* I have photographic evidence later.

Cute Asian boy from the Rx Bandits. He could thrash on the guitar like nobody's business. Apparently his name is Steve Choi. More evidence of his cute boy status later.

Vaginas. Apparently Travie loves them.

Not to be confused with the ever popular HEART

I have so many pictures of Travis from this concert. I'll sift through and post the really good ones later.

Awww Eric! Yeah, he's totally flipping off some chick who was hanging in front of the barrier. *shrugs* It was pretty cute, so I took a picture.

And this is how up close and personal I got to be with Travie at one point. "Hey Trav. How are you? Nice shirt. Hmm, sweaty. Here, let me put my hand there. Thanks." ♥

OH Meet and Greet. YAY! We weren't supposed to take pictures with the band..but they didn't tell us that until AFTER we'd done so with Travis. So HA!

Hey Eric! Sashi!

Hey Matt! And Eric sneaking in the pic! Here Matt looks up and says "Hey, I remember you! I'm going to write you a special congratulations" OR something like that. Then he proceeds to write me the cutest message on my setlist EVER. And you know what Shonna does? She LOSES THE EFFING PAPER. Yeah, somewhere between the merch table and my car I LOST IT. I cried. No really, I cried. :( My cousin gave me hers, but it just isn't the same. I guess at least I still have the memory of the experience. *sigh*

Between losing my signed setlist and getting to the car we run into:

Cute Asian boy aka Steve Choi. He was adorable and stopped to hang with and pose for pictures with all four of us.

Then we get downstairs, still trying to get to the car, and we run into the badass rapper from P.O.S. Yeah, turns out he's ADORABLE! And from Minnesota. I loved him. My cousin Carlie tells him, while pointing at me "She just had a baby 10 days ago!" Hahaha! Oh Carlie. We all talk a bit and ask him for pictures. He calls ME adorable and then grabs me up and puts his head on mine and this is what we get:

We finally make it to the car and head out! The end of my slightly shortened concert recap. It is mostly shortened in that I didn't post even close to all of the pictures. Not even CLOSE. Hahaha.

And for those of you who don't care about the concert...

Tune back in soon for pictures and stories from my birthday MCR concert featuring a great deal of cold, wind and sand in line, boxing in the parking lot and the groping of one Frank Iero.

More pics of Spencer too. As always.

hi, he's adorable. ♥

also? awesome concert experiences. wanna be my concert buddy? i saw mcr with my cousin and had to leave early for her to be able to actually, ya know, sleep so she could get to work. (herein, lauren whines because james dewees from reggie and the full effect said anyone could come over to the bar across the street to buy him booze, and i wanted to!) i also saw p!atd & tai, but didn't think i had enough money to buy the tai cd so i could meet them and have them sign it, and in the cab on the way home, i counted my money and i totally had enough. le suck.

so, yeah. ya wanna? *grins*

thanks love. ♥

I WOULD LOVE TO BE YOUR CONCERT BUDDY. I don't even know where you live and I'm ready to sign up, sight unseen.

I don't leave early. PSH. I know I have a little one, but we work it out DUDE. That's what my mom is for! LMAO

Oh god, I'd have so been at that bar in a second!

Awww, that's sad. I've still never seen TAI. BUT WAIT, twice on the Civic tour! woohoo! I shall meet Beckett. I SHALL! And I will come away with awesome cute boy stories. Especially if I get the chance to meet the entirety of the band. Hmmmm.

Wait. Why aren't we friends?
I definitely wanna. You need to check out my previous concert posts if you haven't already. I have the wackiest most awesome concert experiences. Srsly.

he can date my bb, and it will be the cutest thing ever. except she's 3, so she's a little older, but it's okay to be a cradle robber, so it works. :0D

california, what?!?! an hour outside of san francisco, so you know tons of bands come here. i just can't go, and that sucks. so, yes, concert buddy, plz.

and that's how it should be! there's nothing better than stalking bands late at night with your friends. of course, i wouldn't know, because i haven't had the chance, but someday, oh yes, someday it will happen.

uh, yeah! except my cousin was underage at the time, and i didn't want to miss alkaline trio or mcr, and i was a total dumbass for not going over there and buying that man a drink! i coulda got on the bus, dammit.

tai = awesome. william beckett is like a taller, skinnier, less drunk, MUCH less scary version of axl rose, snake dance and all. it was my first tai experience, and i've loved them ever since. so i think you'll enjoy watching them. also? my birthday is in july, so if you could, please kidnap borrow mike carden for me.

uh... i don't know. i want to be, though, so i think i'm going to go and add you, yes?
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on May 14th, 2007 02:58 pm (UTC)
YES. Add away. I'm off to do so as we speak!

Oh God, I never made the Beckett/Axl Rose comparison, but I can so see it. They are both entertaining frontment, to say the very least.

Gotcha. I'll bring Mike home with me if at all possible. I wonder how willing he'll be. *ponders*

Nothing wrong with cradle robbers! At least, this is how I justify my unnatural love for pretty much every boy in this fandom. So we might as well pass this along to our children. Besides, I'm almost 6 YEARS older than my hubby.

Bandstalking is a national passtime. At least in my tiny world it is!


YAY, I have a new friend! (I'm a huge dork, you'll soon find.)
desperate and a little delusionalanothersadsong on May 15th, 2007 10:47 pm (UTC)
i did! yaaaaay! *dances* i'm a big dork, too!

see? see! william beckett is totally this generation's axl rose. of course, i'm 26, so i remember axl rose when he was relevant, but still.

mike? he won't have a problem with being his adoring fans love slave. i don't think, anyway. ;0)

couldn't have said it better myself!

my hubby's a year older than me, but if you'd known me in college, you'd know that even when i was 21, i was still going for the 18 year olds. i guess some things never change! *facepalm*

mine too! and this is why we'll get along just fine. :0D

The Adorableness on this page is amazing. ASIAN BOY. SWEET RAPPER.

And. My heart, Spencer. I vote for Spencer.

I KNOW RIGHT! I still can't believe it happened to me. Well, it wasn't as amazing as my FOB FOE tour story, but it ranks up there! I mean come on, a cute sweet Asian boy and a rapper! My life is so full.

He has my heart too. I vote for Spencer all the way.

Seriously, how are there this many cute boys in the world? Explain those odds.

He is my little adorable world.

Concert sounds amazing! How awesome. :)

AWWWWWW, baby Spencer! He is so precious I don't know what to do with myself. ♥
I AM  YOUR WIFE!: Baby Spencer!eckerlilas on May 11th, 2007 09:10 pm (UTC)
The concert was the best. Such a great experience, especially for my first one back after the baby.

I just stare at him for hours sometimes. Makes being productive rather difficult. :)

YES! Let's be friends! OMG, don't get me started on the original Ninja Turtles vs these newfangled ones. HAHAHA <3

Other than my new little person (aka Spencer), my 30s are pretty much like my 20s. Well, that totally isn't true because he takes up like 85% of my time...but since he's been born I've already been to two concerts. Hahaha. Some things never change...and I seriously don't want them to.

I'm so excited. I love new friends. (I'm a big flailing dork by the way, I wanted to fairly warn you.) Oh, and apparently, my new haircut makes me look 12.

Welcome to my life!
