Now I'm hooked.

^on the topic of covers, I think the Sliver cover is preeetttyyy bad. I'm a pretty big Nirvana fan, but I hate that song. As covers go, however, TGA did a great job retaining the sound.

I just realized how much of an oddball song Diamond Church is, compared to the rest of the disco. Still an absolutely amazing jam, though.

Gaslight in Boston at House of Blues last night was simply amazing. I've been to so many countless shows, this will go down as one of the best, easily. Sound was great, they were in an awesome mood, having a blast, 26 songs! Every song off Handwritten but National Anthem, but they played Blue Dahlia too. Look at this set. They played a song called Halloween for the first time.

Halloween:


And I typed the lyrics up:

Sympathy, this is my best disguise.
My skin stepped out for my bones to dry up,
for the rest of the world outside...to see.
You see I bleed on the side
It's a part time thing, a private affair
I try to keep it out of the light.

I must confess, I didn't recognize you tonight
Dressed up like my love.

And I hate these things but I always attend,
a little sip of something to take off the edge.
And I make my way through the ghosts in the room,
trying to crack a smile.

And who you supposed to be?
You look like heaven tonight
And me I'm a tomb, a corpse in a suit,
trying to look a little alive.
Are you alright?

I worry sometimes,
are you dressed up to take my life?
Keep it coming, keep it coming.

And I think I saw you for the flash of a moment,
Your broken heart and the body that holds it
I lost your scent in the flash of the party.
The big bright lights, baby, constantly haunt me.
I've never been right, have you ever been lied to?
I think I just saw the same scars upon you.
But is this a disguise? A masquerade for me?
Keep it coming, keep it coming.

And who you supposed to be?
Hey you look just like my love.
And who you supposed to be?
Are you dressed just like my love?
And who you supposed to be?
Hey you look just like my love.
And who you supposed to be?
Are you dressed just like my love for Halloween?

amazing lyrics.

Been getting into this band again. Alex R is an amazing guitarist.

Also grabbed Elsie, earlier. Holy crap. Musical masterpiece.

The Backseat reduced me to tears tonight.

"AND IF YOU NEVER LET ME GO, I WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN."

Love that line, and the entire song

There aren't any. I have no idea what this person is talking about, ha. Unless the one or two mentions of "God" in their lyrics are what they're talking about. But that hardly constitutes a creationist message.


my cousin is their guitar tech and he said he thinks it's gonna be the bouncing souls and cory branan. wasn't totally sure and it could always change but that's what i heard.

wait, Ian Perkins is your cousin? Or does TGA have a new/another guitar tech?
