I went to an AFI, Thirty Seconds to Mars, and Linkin Park concert last night and it was AMAZING.
AFI’s set was way too short and they only played singles but still, it was AFI live and me in the front row so I’m super cool with it. There was also a good straight 30 seconds where Davey and I were locked in eye contact singing and I wasn’t sure if I should look away or not but I STAYED STRONG AND STARED RIGHT BACK FUCK YEAH IT WAS GREAT. We made eye contact a bunch of times also like I think Davey just really likes to look people right in the eyes cause I’m sure it wasn’t just me haha so awesome though. BUT NOW I CRAVE A HEADLINING AFI SHOW LIKE NO ONE’S BUSINESS BUT IT PROBABLY WONT HAPPEN FOR AWHILE? Maybe not even until next album?? Ugh idk but I need.
Thirty Seconds to Mars was like a bonus band for me. I never would have spent money to go to a concert of theirs but I was happy to have the chance to see them. (I loved A Beautiful Lie but never bought or listened to any newer music from them.) I was pleasantly surprised. Even though Jared looked like Jesus/a homeless guy…Like he KNOWS he looks like Jesus and is totally playing on that image omfg it’s kinda hilarious. He was super fun to watch spin around all over stage, and I enjoyed all of the music (probably gonna buy some of the new stuff now.) ALSO there were GIANT FUCKING BALLOONS, like HUGE that we got to toss around and tons of confetti and just, it was REALLY fun. Some friends we made before the show even got to go up on stage with them! Oh and Jared took of his shirt for the last quarter of the set which was another nice bonus lolol.
Linkin Park was amazing as always! They played almost all of my favorite songs (I mean, most of their music is my favorite songs if you feel me like, I love it all) but they played my tops! And they played half of Iridescent and I cried because I just love that song so fucking much. There was an awesome Mr Hahn solo and just ughhh so amazing. Mike did some Fort Minor and Chester was literally the best I have ever heard him. His screaming was ON POINT like I can’t even believe it was real he is insane with his screaming it’s amazing.
Best part of the night was probably Mike Shinoda literally standing on me. Like, I was on the barrier, he was walking over, eye contact, BOOM he’s standing on the barrier where I am while I am grabbing onto his leg first helping him catch his balance and then holding him up. Like no lie RIGHT ON TOP OF ME. I was dying it was a-fucking-mazing. I’ve always dreamed of having something like that happen at a show but imagined it would be a smaller band or something, BUT NO, FUCKIN, MIKE SHINODA OKAY. Chester came over a little while after and I got a nice strong handshake/grab thing and he was on the barrier right next to me, like I could have potentially been touching his side or petting his arm lolol but I didn’t want to be a fuckin creep so one light touch after the handshake and I was good haha.
We also met so many awesome people while we were waiting around before the show! I was super impressed because the crowd at the LP show two years ago was full of assholes it was the worst crowd I’ve ever experienced but this one was great! (Minus oneasshole but luckily she didn’t present much of a problem once LP came on…Maybe because she overheard me talking to the security guard and letting him know that she was threatening to fight us all, he replied that he’d gladly take her out of the crowd if she acted up. Nice security guards are my fave.) It was a great mix of people, at first most of them were there for Thirty Seconds to Mars but two of them were there just for AFI and they were awesome hang out with, and once more people started showing up there were more and more people there for Linkin Park but wow I never would have believed fanbases for those three bands could have meshed together so well.
It was definitely a needed night. I haven’t been to a concert in SO SO LONG, which is so sad because I normally hit up at least 4-5 a year haha. I missed concerts so much and this one definitely quenched my thirst, at least for a little while!
Q:what's it like when you're given a mission with zexion? are you two pals or do you work badly together?
we did recon together in a rather cold world. It went fine but we don’t talk about it
He did not remember closing his eyes… but then somehow he was back at Winterfell again, in the godswood looking down upon his father. Lord Eddard seemed much younger this time. His hair was brown, with no hint of grey in it, his head bowed. “… let them grow up close as brothers, with only love between them,” he prayed, “and let my lady wife find it in her heart to forgive…”
