a while ago my roommate asked me if i wanted to go to a silverstein concert with her. i wasn't really into the band at all, but i'm all over live shows. so we drove to the loft, which is perfect for smaller more intimate shows, and awaited.

let me tell you what, they turned me into a fan that night. the show was amazing, they were very energetic, often, shane offered the microphone to an extremely excited fan in the crowd. there were three little stool things on the stage for them to jump around on, which really got the place roaring, and at the end of the show they jumped off of them into the crowd. in the midst of being center stage where all the crazy action squishing goes on, i looked towards right stage to see neil the guitarist looking right at me, and kissing the neck of his guitar. after the show was over, i was standing in a small crowd of people in front of neil, and he tried throwing me his pick, which due to my bad depth perception, i missed. then he tried again. and a third time. i missed all of them. i'd like to think he was trying to get in my pants ;) i did however get one of the drumsticks from paul. :)

the loft is small enough so the bands can sit around afterwards and meet the fans, so thats what we did.

check out some pics!Collapse )

so thats that! any other silverstein fans out there? seeing them live has made me fall in love with them!

So, I went to a local show Friday and Saturday in StL. Anti-Racism Awareness....crappy turnout which made us all sad. I worked security and on my breaks, of coursed, moshed. I chipped a tooth, pierced my lip with one of my teeth...but all in good fun. :)

Solvi came all the way from Memphis, Tennesse, and they were the best band there on Friday. On Saturday Soul Decenders came. For 14-15 year olds they're EXTREMELY talented, and I was shocked. Black Tape was also well as Auburn Serene (as always). The bassist talked to me and it was awesome.

I also got a free Sleep State Demo...and would have gotten a Soul Decenders one had I not given it to my friend who was down about the turn-out (shes a singer in a local band here, Lack of Conformity). I also got an Addien sticker, and they're very nice guys.
