I have done victory arms with Panic! at the Disco. My whole life after this point is just a bonus. (KIDDING.)

Meet and Greet! )

Foxy )

PATRICK STUMP IS THE BEST )

Spencer Smith is a hotass )

Overall, it was just a fantastic show. As I found out in Saratoga Springs with MCR, being on the barrier makes shows feel MASSIVELY longer, in a good way, and this was a LONG show anyway (3.5h), so it was just absolutely wonderful. A+++, WOULD SEE AGAIN.

YOU GUYS. YOU GUYS I CAN’T. I CANNNNN’T.

Getting there )

BARRIER. ACTUALFAX BARRIER )

Matt & Kim )

SHOWWWWWWW )

We. Met. Ray. And he remembered us from the audience! )


And then we all waited long enough to see Mikey and Frank go by in golf carts, and then went back to our various digs. [personal profile] mistresscurvy and I ended up staying up for another hour or two just repeating the phrase "oh my God, that was so fucking amazing" over and over and over (technically there was more conversation than that, but I swear we must have each said that, like, a KABILLION times. Approximately). Because it WAS.

ALL THE FUZZY MCR FEELINGS. And now I'm going to go reread [livejournal.com profile] brooklinegirl's Wave Two BBB and then, like, everything [livejournal.com profile] desfinado has ever written. ALL THE MCR FIC SHALL BE BELONG TO ME.

(Also. Feel free to rec Ray porn and Ray fic in general to me. NOW IS THE TIME.)

------

BTW--today is the anniversary of the Art is the Weapon trailer, which also means it's the anniversary of [personal profile] mistresscurvy getting into bandom. As she was the one who dragged me in along with her (for which I am extremely grateful!), this is also a fairly great This Day in History for me, too. Yay bandom; I love all y'all. Let's keep doing this thing we do.

That. Was. Fantastic.

Arrival: so many teenagers )

Black Cards: Pete is a ridiculous human being )

Overall review: Pete needs to drop the t-shirt gun and maybe pick up his bass (just to give him more to do!) but it said everything when [personal profile] amazonziti, who had only heard Curtain Call (awful, awful song, not representative of them at all!) was totally blown away by Bebe. Because, dude. BEBE. They were hugely more polished than when I saw them in Toronto opening for Travie, although I don't love their new stuff as much as Dominos/Club Called Heaven/Baby Blackout.

Neon Trees: I could actually see Tyler! AND ELAINE )

Overall review: great set, and you gotta love a band that has, hair-wise, a Spencer, a Patrick Stump, a JTT, and ... a swan. Oh Tyler. What is your hair.

PANIC AT THE MOTHERFUCKING DISCO )

Overall review: BEST. BEST. BEST. BEST. BEST. BEST. I LOVE THEM. BEST.
ETA: Ohh, and Merelyn25 hit a bunch of the points I had forgotten in her fabulous recap. SILLY STRING.
ETA2: And another great write-up by [livejournal.com profile] fictionalaspect here!


And then a whole big group of us ([personal profile] amazonziti, [personal profile] mistresscurvy, [livejournal.com profile] fictionalaspect, [personal profile] lilac_one, and a couple of other people who were lovely but whose names I didn't retain) went out to a diner and had milkshakes and a little bit of food and a hell of a lot of water, and talked for two hours. Like you do.

Now I'm sore as hell, and on Sunday I have to drive the six+ hours back to my parents' house, but it was worth it. It was so. Completely. Worth it.

Last night I saw Patrick Stump perform at the Mohawk in Buffalo, and it. Was. FABULOUS.

The Venue, Like the Man Himself, Is TINY. )

First Opener: Rocky Fresh )

Second Opener: Wynter Gordon )

PStump Performs! )

After they finished the encore he came through and HIGH-FIVED THE ENTIRE AUDIENCE. SERIOUSLY.

Post-show: Surprise Meet & Greet! )

Set List )

Seriously, y'all, if he's playing near you, GO. It will be AMAZING.

\o/ YOU GUYS.

Okay, so, first of all, jam-packed weekend. After a lovely quiet Saturday of internet-surfing and philosophy with [personal profile] mistresscurvy, we took off for Boston by train (also lovely, go Amtrak) and met up in time for late drinks with [personal profile] amazonziti.

(These drinks were at a sports bar. Somehow I actually ended up getting caught up in the Red Sox game. I HAVE NO EXPLANATION, except that it was actually a pretty exciting inning--the Cubs scored eight runs, changing the score from 3-1 to 3-9.)

The next morning we had a little bit of scheduling confusion but more or less ended up with this:
1) a lovely brunch at S&S with [livejournal.com profile] brooklinegirl and [livejournal.com profile] mrsronweasley;
2) Rock Band at [personal profile] mistresscurvy's brother's place (they're great at it and [personal profile] amazonziti is clearly going to be; I ... homg, I am not. It is like my kryptonite. I didn't even like holding the guitar or the microphone. (Inside of my head: "look away! oh god look away! I am not here! You see nothing!") When Gerard Way says that everyone would be a performer if they could? LOL NO.
3) Lining up with [personal profile] fictionalaspect and her friend K. We actually split up into different lines, because ...

HOLY SHIT MEET AND GREET )
Then the concert! )
Foxy Shazam, or, That ... Happened? )
fun. )
PANIC AT THE MOTHERFUCKING DISCO )

I ... feel like there is more to say? But I have run out of recollections. It was amazing! I am so glad I got to go! I am so glad it all went down the way it went down! I am sad that I don't get to see them again this tour! I am happy for those of you who will! I am happy they exist in the world! I have all of the feelings! Etc!
