First off I would like to say to any and all who read my LJ that you're a bit insane for not accepting an offer of free tickets. I mean, even those of you on the east coast, you should be throwing yourself at a second chance to see The Faint/Bright Eyes.
Second, I'M SO GLAD NONE OF YOU WANTED TO COME, IT WOULD HAVE SUCKED IF YOU'D BEEN THERE! I'm kidding, and I'm sorry it's mean but I can't seem to care.
Shea and myself ended up taking Brandon, then having an extra ticket which I sold for $20, Brandon thought this was stupid of me because some chick had gotten $50 for one ticket, but uhh, I'm not greedy?
Shea bought me a lime green The Faint shirt, and I bought her a sky blue Bright Eyes, and a The Faint shirt of an octopus with two human legs. Oh, oh! And water was $2.
Gosh, there were so many beautiful people there. This one boy I kept seeing had the same hair-do as the lead singer of The Faint, and he wore a Clockwork Orange shirt I wanted to rip off him. Hell, even the assholes were hot! That's horrible, but true.
Some crazy rap/hip-hop electronica band opened up. Brandon and his friends were doing "rap bounces"... Shea, didn't he look yummers? Anyways, the rappers only took a stabbing shot at "music" for a time line no longer then ten minutes. People cheered when they went away, so I feel a bit bad for them.
The Faint was, uhmmmm... RAD. I mean, even though by the time they came on we were separated from Brandon because these tall fuckers were like "OMG, NO MORE PEOPLE, IT WON'T EFFECT US AT ALL, BUT WE JUST LOVE BEING ASSHOLES!". I can not say I cared a lot though. They kept making fun of us because we were short and it made me want to tackle them, start throwing punches and gnaw their ears off, however I restrained myself and took out my "aggression" when some big chick kept dancing into my ass. I just shoved her a million times to have some breathing room, then I kept throwing myself against one of the tall assholes so he couldn't get any hump-day-treat action with his girlfriend.
But no, the Faint was not as great as last time as the show they had in November at La Zona was a shitload better. Though the electronics were still good. But they didn't play for very long, and They did not play "Erection" which is apparently Shea's favorite The Faint song. Duh, cuz it's nifty. The crowd really loved "Paranoia" though.
After The Faint Shea and I went to get overpriced waters, I drowned myself in liquid. Mmmm, thank you baby Jesus for aqua. Shea kept singing the Captain Planet theme, then "I Disappear" by The Faint, then various MC Chris midis.
When Bright Eyes came on we found ourselves in the front-ish area, but then dearest Shea felt faint and the nice security guards bought her a water, and let us sit in the control panels room. When Shea was feeling better they let us sit right my the stage. Like... backstage... Like. VIP. I'm not trying to brag, I didn't even watch Bright Eyes preform I kept looking at Shea and freaking out to make sure she was O.K. But I was happy for her because she got the guitar pick from the Bright Eyes guitarist who was also in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He smashed his perfectly lovely guitar into pieces. It pissed us off.
And yes, I'd have to say this Bright Eyes show was a lot better then the one at La Zona Rosa, as it was a larger crowd and they played more from Digital Ash, and "Lover I Don't Have to Love"/"First Day of My Life"- two songs that many people love, including me. At one point Conor Oberst got on top of his piano. He might have humped it, I don't really know.
Hmmm. Then we like, left? Ate pizza at my pad, and bought two cokes. Shea was the winner of a 1-liter bottle of any coke product. It is really her lucky day! Er. Now she's passed out on the floor and her brother is judging me on AIM saying I can "talk shit to him on-line but not to his face".
By the way you douche bag, "cuntrag" is a half assed word if it even is one.
