The bands that played were The Black Maria, The Lawrence Cross and, of course, Alkaline Trio. The Black Maria was great, but the Lawrence Cross SUCKED. I don't like them. But I only stayed up front because Alkaline Trio played last and I was eager to get the the front bar to be right up against the stage.
So. All in all, the concert just.. rocked. The Kool Haus is the coolest club i've ever seen.
They started right on time, which was good. :3
When the Black Maria played, the leader singer [Romito, I think his name was], jumped onto the crowd and grabbed onto Jill and practically mauled her lmfao. It was so funny. They played my favorite song, Betrayal, so I was pretty happy. :3
Then they went off and the stage was reset for the next band, The Lawrence Cross. I was like, "HISSSSSS." Because I don't like them. So for the most part, I ignored them. :3 While they were setting up everyone started lighting up bongs and smoking weed. Jill and I thought we were gonna get high off the REEK of weed. The Lawrence Cross had major technical difficulties though, and I laughed at them.
Some fat girl kept crushing my hip when the Lawrence cross was playing, and she REEKED. Like, omg. Try wearing deoderant and LOOSE A THOUSAND POUNDS BEFORE YOU GO TO A CONCERT, PLEASE. And Jill told her to stop crushing me and she was like, "Oh, no thanks. I'm fine right here." And just kept on fucking doing it. @_@ So since she was pissing us off so much we moved over to a bit of a more open space, where this girl who was so BAKED started elbowing me so I turned and just shoved her and she stopped. Then the fat girls boyfriend [ BOYFRIEND. WTF.] switched places with her and she was BESIDE ME AGAIN. WTF. And then the Lawrence cross went off stage and I was like, "UGH, FUCK, FINALLY."
So all the people in front went away because they were only in front for the Lawrence Cross. So Jill and I got to be right in front against the bars. But then THE FAT LADY MOVED BESIDE ME AGAINST THE BAR TOO WTF. So I ignored her. We started talking tot his guy beside us, who we found out was named Scott, and he lives in Toronto. He was pretty good looking and nice. He was so enthusiastic when the bands were playing. Lmfao.
At some random time or another the curtains closed. o_O The band was setting up, we assumed, while everyone kept beating the shit out of each other behind us. xD Jill started to feel icky and I felt bad. D:
Then the curtains opened and DUNDUNDUN. ALKALINE TRIO. 8D
They started off with a bunch of songs I couldn't recognize. By the end of the first song, people started crowd surfing and the sercurity were ripping them right out of the crowds. O_O; I got kicked in the head and bashed my chin on the bar and its starting to bruise now. xD
The band was really good, though. I was right infront of Dan Andriano, so I got a lot of really good pictures of him. I also got a few of Derek Grant, but not many turned out well. I hardly got any of Matt Skiba, though.
Then suddenly the fat lady starts SHOVING everyone on my side over with her fat ass so I kneed her in the ass and she gave up. She moved a little and I stole her spot and was pretty damned happy. :3
After a couple of songs Jill got a security gaurd to pull her out of the crowd because she didn't feel well. So I stood with Scott during the acoustic song, 'Sorry about that'. Before long, I started to freak out because of all the people and I didn't know anyone, so I just turned and ran for it. I couldn't find Jill or her cousins girlfriend, Shannon, so I ran to the outside of the bathroom. Seconds later I started bawling, and this guy came up to me and he put his arms around me and he gave me this weird look, like, a grin and concern or something and I told him to go away, and he looked hurt a moment before I said it again and he held his hands up and walked away. Then I just started bawling and ran like hell for the bathroom and started bawling.
The drink-watcher lady came in and asked me if I was alright, and even came into the stall with me and rubbed my back and stuff and told me it was alrgiht, that she'd tell security about this guy and they'd bust his ass and then she told me that I should go look for my friend, Jill, and that if I need something to tell her. SO I said okay, and ran for it back into the crowds to find Jill. I just kept running around in circles before I decided to hide in the bathroom again and then I saw Jill heading towards the bar area or something, so I ran at her and clinged to her and then I started hyperventalating because I was so terrified.
After awhile, I was okay, and we went back into the crowd to listen to the music again and sing with it. I sun so loud that my voice now has a crack, and I'm starting to loose it.
They sung all my favorite songs at the end. They even sang, "This could be love." I was so happy when they played it that i started bouncing.
Then, during the last song, the curtain at the back fell and there was this black and white curtain behind it witht he heart and skull logo they have. It was so cute looking. But everyone started cheering loudly when it began to fell.
Time for the pictures I took!
Before the concert, in my room. I thought I looked cool so I made Jill take a picture. xD
My Jilly. :3 This was during dinner at Loblaws. We all got salad. :3
THE BLACK MARIA
This was the leader singer of the Black Maria. He was good looking.
...And at one point or another his long sleeve shirt vanished.
The guitaristp[or, one of them]! he was cute in a weird way. xD But a good weird way! His hair style suits him. He was good at the guitar, too. :3 The other Guitarist never came to my side so I never got a good pic.
The bassist~ He was just... rofl. He only came to my side of the stage once.
This is the lead singer, again~
This was when he jumped up on the bar that kept us away from the stage and started mauling the people in the area. (AKA: JILL. XDDDDD HE SPAT ON HER.)
Damn, he was so good looking. @_@
THE LAWRENCE CROSS.
...This is the ONLY picture of the band I took. xDDDD
Dan Andriano! God, he was good looking, too. But he's old, I think. Not sure how old, but... Haha. His shirt was cute.
I think this is Matt Skiba. Bad picture, I know. Horrible cropping and zooming. @_@
Derek Grant! Damn, those drums were so awesome looking.
It's in black and white because it was in shades of green before. xD Wtf? It looks good though.
THIS PICTURE IS HUGE SO CLICK HERE.
It's only that big because it was a really good image so Its now my desktop. xD
Matt Skiba again! He has a really good voice for acoustics.
Derek Grant again. :D His hair made me laugh. xD
This was after the freaking out incident happened and we stood at the back near the bar.
Lookie! My girlfriend, again. :3
THIS COULD BE LOVE, LOVE FOR FIRE~~~ ♥ I want to rape these guys.
...They dropped the curtain. :3
For my first show, it was really fun. :3
