So the show tonight was great. Crime In Stereo was good. The front man was a little over the top. He just jumped around way too much. A little over the top for the opening act (in my opinion). They were easily forgettable. Thrice did great as well, but there's a lack of energy in their live shows now. Maybe I'm not growing like they are musically, but I just kept finding myself getting distracted. I kept looking at their gear more than listening to the songs they were playing. They're solid musicians, but I guess I just like the older material than the newer material.
Brand New on the other hand were fantastic. They opened the show with "You Won't Know" which was perfect. Their energy was spot on with their songs, and Jesse Lacey's voice makes you envious of his ability to sing the way he does. I find myself completely jealous of his writing style, his guitar playing, and his vocals. The dude has way more problems than I have ever had in my life, but damn does he know how to make me connect. Songs that were played tonight are listed below. I'll list them in no particular order, but by which album the songs appeared on.
So it was probably the best show I've been to. I've been trying to see Blink merely my whole life. I'm 21 now and yeah, I was never able to make it. They played a great set and Tom actually sounded good. The energy was fantastic and it really looks like Tom and Mark are becoming great friends again. I posted some pictures on my tumblr blog. More will be posted soon, but check them out.
As always they blew me away. They also dedicated "Chia-Like, I Shall Grow" to me. I love having friends in this band and I will always remember this. I got my picture taken with Max and Coby. They're really nice and down to earth guys. I would love to tour with them.
The "Shiksa" video is also coming out next week so that's going to be fun.
Seriously this was the best night I had in a while. I loved every second of it.
