'i was hoping you'd be here' [22 Feb 2002|04:54pm]

magdalena1030
[ mood | numb ]

We got to Northern Lights around 3. We immediately saw their tour bus, and went around back to it. As we were walking closer, we didn't see anyone around, so we kind of hung around there for a second deciding whether to go back around front. Then we saw these little legs walk down the front of the tour bus and stop and then go back up and stop. It was like a double take. So we were like, was that Brandin? and like a minute later, Fletcher comes walking out of the tour bus and points his fingers at us in remembrance. We said Hi to him again and we gave him some of his gifts. He said that he knew we would be there and then said, I was hoping youd be here. [!!!]Then he invited us on the tour bus. It was very perty and there was a Chihuahua on the front dashboard. He had said that the other guys went across the street to eat. Then us and Fletch went into NL and hung out and talked with him while their equipment and sound was getting set up. We talked about last time they were here and a lot of other stuff. We gave him the mix of songs that we made them and he loved it. He asked the people working there if he could put it on so that everyone could listen while setting up. So they put it on, and everyone there loved all the song choices. Fletcher said that we had saved them because they needed songs that go between Abandoned Pools set and their set, so they will be using the CD mix in the rest of their shows. :) He mentioned Dominic and a certain member of a certain band making out....a little disturbing to know. We are not getting into that.There was this pole with a base on it that didn't have lights set up yet, and it looked like a pole for pole dancing. HA. About an hour or so later, the rest of the guys came in through the front door and saw us immediately. It was really light outside, so as they walked in, it was like four silhouettes walking towards us. tehe. We gave the rest of them their presents. Rex kept saying sweeeet! about everything he got. They were all singing along to the mix that was being played. We had an interview planned, so we interviewed Dominic [ill post the interview at another time..it is EXTREMELY long]. It was really funny and he enjoyed it. We were all just hanging out with them as they went back and forth to the tour bus and inside the venue. We had met the guitarist from Abandoned Pools and his name is Pelle. He is SO awesome. He is extremely nice and is from Sweden. He was awesome to be hanging out with. Then the guy who worked their said that we had to leave. We told him that the guys had said we could stay inside with them and he said well, its not up to them or something. So Fletcher came to our rescue and said like two words to the guy and he said we could stay. They were working on a cover song that they havent quite mastered, so they arent playing it live yet. Izzy and I sat and watched them figure out certain chords and practice the cover. It sounded really good. Shortly after that, Dominic was playing this racing car game called California Speed...we went over and watched him. hehe he was good. Pelle was next to him playing pinball and we went over to cheer him on. He was a little confused it seemed when the ball would roll out the bottom. We had like 3 or 4 hours until 7:30 when the doors were supposed to be opened, so we were hanging out with the guys and talking to Pelle and the other members of Abandoned Pools. We watched the Flick sound check and were the only two clapping when they finished each song hehe Pelle came over to us and gave us each an A.P pin. SOOO NICEE! After Flickers sound check, we got a group shot with all the guys. We were the Flickerstick paparazzi..haha they loved it. We met the lead singer of Abandoned Pools, Tommy and the bassist, Leah. She is so awesome. We were talking to her about instruments we play and i mentioned that i played the bass. Later, she asked me if i wanted to play her bass for their sound check. I unfortunately said, no but only because i would have seriously melted right there on the spot. I couldn't even believe she asked me to do that. She is so awesome. We were sitting with various members of Flick around the venue and the bar at various times. We asked Fletcher if his tattoo was finished yet, and he said it was and showed it to us. It rocks balls. We said that they needed to come back here more often on their tour and he said they will definitely come back. All of our conversations and interviews we did with the members of Flick, was like we were talking to close friends, they never really hesitated about saying anything, and it wasn't like they had to anyway. We had an in depth conversation with Cory and Pelle about Bands On The Run. Cory has many mixed feelings about the show. Oh, and he hates Staind with a passion and we told him that he needs to make the Cory Law because he was saying, anyone who likes the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd has to BY LAW hate Staind and then he was doing his impression of them lol he did that a lot. myyyy daddd touchhhedd meeeee....i hateee myyy lifeeeee!. Sitting and talking with Cory for like a half hour is really amusing. Another time that day, Izzy Cory and I were standing near the Epic promo and he was saying how he hates the pictures that they take lol and he was describing the shirt he was wearing on the promo. He was like there is ducks all over here and grass shit all over the back...his duck shirt . He said they always get the worst shot of him...when hes not looking at the camera, or his legs are wide apart or something.lol Ducks came up in the interviews too....We went to do the interview with Rex and we were sitting on the other side of the bar, Cory and Dominic came running up because they wanted to hear what Rex would answer. During the interview, Cory and Dom would be like hey i said that too! or laugh at Rex for his answers. Rexs interview is hilarious. We asked Fletcher if he wanted to play California Speed and he said he would, so we raced him. Izzy sucks at driving. ;) So i took over and she took a picture of Fletch and I playing. I ended up winning. I came in3rd and Fletch came in 5th. hehehe. Shortly after, Abandoned Pools had their sound check. Sounded good. A little before they were going open the doors, we went over to the guy at the door [who knew us] and he couldn't find our name on the guest list. So...Fletcher came to the rescue again...he said that we were on his guest list. The guy talked to the manager and they eventually found our names. There was four of us on the list so they let Chris and Dan in a little early because they were with us. Once the concert started, it began to fill up a little. A.P went on first, they sounded awesome. Chris said that the bassist kept smiling at me. :) Then Flick came on.They played, Lift, Feel, Holly, Smile, Fade, Sorry, Right, Chloro, Coke, Ex, Believe(their new song they just wrote), Beautiful, Direct. Rex had a singing solo during Youre So Hollywood. The show was really amazing. They had so much more...of everything. Rex was so funny on stage, he was making fun of Brandin because Brandin was doing some accent while talking about Abandoned Pools. After Beautiful ended, Rex said How bout one more time! and he played the beginning of Beautiful and no one else was playing, so he just kind of faded out. It was funny. After the show, they pushed the guard rail out from the stage about 4 feet and used the it as kind of a thing for the band members to stay behind if they wanted to. Rex and Dom and Cory all went out to the audience. Fletcher was walking around, going back and forth. When we were behind the guard rail, he said when these people leave, we will have some time to hang out. When Brandin came out, he sat at the end of the line thing. Izzy and I went behind it and no one cared because they all knew that we were with them earlier. The band members we all happy to see us. I can honestly say that we have moved on from taking nice pictures with Flickerstick. we would run up to them and grab their asses. We had Cory do a Derek Zoolander pose and he grabbed his ass. We were crazy with taking pictures. I have so many of Dominic pointing to this zit on his face. We would attack Cory with the flash, so there is so many close ups of Corys face...just to annoy him. :) Dominic had some ass-grab-age too. hehe We got countless amounts of pictures after the show. Cory makes no sense when hes drunk. He was going on about his inside jokes with Dominic. Saying i aint sayin...im just sayin. i was like, Cory..that makes no sense. and he was like no..its a thing i have with Dominic and he said to Dominic Hey Dom...I aint sayin... and Dom had no idea what Cory was talking about until Cory repeated it like 5 times. Dominic didn't remember right away..or care. lol Then Cory and Chris had a beanie war. For some reason, no one would dare to touch Corys beanie. I don't know what it is with fans and Corys beanie. Everyone thinks for some reason that it is his sacred beenie Well, it was ripped off and Cory was flaunting his TAIL! Cory has a tail...actually he has a mullet. full-on mullet. I was rubbing his tail lol it was so funny. I was hugging him later and he said my hair smelled good and asked what i used and i said herbal essences and he was like, oh! i use white trash grease oil in mine! haha...Anyway, Cory and Chris were about to fight about the beanie it was so hilarious. I had a picture of Cory doing some fighting pose...i don't even know what he was doing. He was running around trying to attack Chris. When we talked to Rex, there wasn't really that many people around him. By the way, there was NO El Dangeroso at this concert. Rex looked good. He looked really good. He was saying to us about how bad his life was the last time they came here and that it was just a blurry, drunken mess. He looked very respectful this time. Brandin said you two are always so good to us and the other guys would say stuff like that. Cory was calling Izzy and I his girls and Dominic kept thanking us for everything weve done. We hung around with them till the very end of the night when there was like 4 fans and Cory and Dominic. As we were leaving, the very end of the night became...indescribable. All in all, i had the best day in my entire life and I couldnt ask for anything else. The fact that a band that you respect and love SO much can think of you as friends and can just hang out for a day is so indescribable. They had remembered all the other stuff that we gave them the last time they were around, and they loved everything they got this time. We could be ourselves around them and everything seemed so normal. I know is that we have an equal personal respect for each other, and that is all i could ever wish for.

even though Izzy's mom messed up our plans...it still worked out :)

i'm not sure if i like or not....i know that i like the original one better.
it makes me kinda sad to see how they are going to be looked at.
it sounds so crisp..so glossed over...so un-'dirty-rock'
i liked when they were dirty rock...i hope they will stay that way.
the CD is amazing, Brandin's voice sounds soo good.
i just can't get over, how its so...crisp, i was listening to the first CD this morning and from listening to the new recording of Beautiful, i notced how cheap a recording the other one was. i like it that way.
i want them to be underground. i am so selfish for saying all this
Got A Feeling is so different..the whole CD is just so different...its like its not really them, just a professional band trying to be them...but they are professional now.
im not a big person on change, escpecially when i liked it how is was...thats probably why i feel this way.
i know that not everyone is going to feel this way, mostly because they havent heard the original cd.
well i have, and i like it better...but i dont 'not like' this one. i dont know...

i have no opinion yet...i am just SO happy and proud of them, their dreams have come true.
this is just the beginning...it could be the beginning of fame, the beginning of rejection. whatever it is, i know that they will always be my favorite band in the entire world and i am so proud of them.

"See all this bullshit about competition, about this Bands on the Run and this battle of the bands, Yeah see, we're the band that's supposed to go home and uh, we are totally cool with that but uh what I want to ask you guys is despite who you met in Tampa, whether you met us or Soulcracker or Harlow, what I'm saying to you is please, just listen. That's the point. It's not about fuckin winning. We'll give everything for you guys. We'll fuckin play until we fuckin die. So vote for whoever you like. Not us, or not for any of the other bands. Vote for who you like."

That was when I knew they would win. These guys make music for the joy of making music.

And guess who has an entire live Flickerstick concert on MP3?

Went to the 'walk-through' thing at school with Izzy and Diana. I hate my schedule. I hate my school. I hate being there. My mom told me to stop saying that because 'she's been hearing it for the last two years'...well get used to it because she'll be hearing it alot. >:o\
The locker room smells like old cabbage lol, actually it is definitly NOT funnny. PooP. Everything will be OK because of Flickerstick. *sigh of relief*
Is that a healthy thing? I can actually convince myself that when everything makes no sense and people are stupid, that everything will be OK because of their exsistance and that i met them. ??
Like i was going to my first day at work, nervous as hell...and since i met Flicker...everything was alright.

On a better note, i made my mom go back up to Crossgates to get that Gavin-riffic British flag bag at Hot Topic...hehehe it was still there and still $22...but i had money this time, so it was all good. :o) i LOOOOOOVE this bag!

I'm running on very little sleep, but I thought I would share with you all the glorious, most wonderful nights of my life that I had at the Flickerstick Cincinnati show last night. (this will probably be kinda long, I apologize in advance)

I will spare you mine and Chris's travel details, because they are quite boring. I will start with when the show started.

They had two opening acts, Greenwheel and Rubyhorse. Which to say the least were both amazing live bands. I preferred the Irish band Rubyhorse, they were amazing. So I ended up buying their album along with Flickerstick's. By the middle of the first band we were already sweating our asses off, it was scorching in Bogart's. By the time Flickerstick came on we were totally tired! Inbetween the opening bands, I saw Fletcher (bass player) sitting kinda half backstage off to the side. Me and my sister started to wave and as I turned away he waved back. So when I turned back around I waved again, and he smiled and waved back. So sweet!

highlights of actual performance:

-Brandin came out with sunglasses and a bottle of wine, very rock n roll

-"Sorry wrong trajectory" : Brandin looked me right in the eye and saw me singing, so it was like we were kind of singing together. Cool moment. My favorite song of the night.

-"Coke" the lead singer of Rubyhorse came out and sang with Brandin.

-Rex kept saying it was Fletcher's birthday. Which I later found out, was only a joke, it wasn't his birthday at all. It was quite funny.

-the "fuck Soulcracker" chants in the crowd

-"Fade into you" and "Direct Line to the Telepathic" nearly made me cry.

-the fact that they played "Lift" even though they said it was hard to play live.

-Brandin saying "Harlow rocks"

after the show:

I went up to buy a Rubyhorse CD and to meet the guys in the band. They were very cool and signed my CD.(where I also find out that they are partying overnight in Cinci) I turned around and couldn't find Chris (my boyfriend). Then he taps my shoulder and told me that Fletcher was down there and that he asked him how long he would be because his girlfriend (me) would be upset if I couldn't meet him too. And Fletcher told him he would be there a while and laughed at Chris.

So I proceeded to run down to the floor where Fletcher was. there was a little crowd but I got through quickly. I got up there and was shaking like mad. I said "Fletcher, you guys are great, you rock, you guys are such an amazing band" and all that babble. The look he had in his eyes when I said that was so amazing. And he saw I was shaking so he gave me a hug and apologized for being so sweaty.I told him Happy Birthday, and he told me it really wasn't his birthday and that Rex was being an ass. Chris took a picture of us together which turned out pretty ok. He signed my CD, and said thank you and I then thanked him and left.

Then Chris discovered Brandin was down there as well. So I pushed my way through to talk to him. I basically said "Brandin. your band is amazing. It's not about VH1 it's all about the music" and he said thanks. He looked me in the eye the whole time, which was cool. I can respect a guy that is going to listen when I talk to them. I told him that I wasn't just kissing ass, that I really loved the band. I took a an unposed close up of him, and he signed my CD and I left. (chris got to get autographs and meet them too) Rex wasn't down there, neither was Cory. But Dominic was, but I didn't want to push through the hoochies.

I know this all sounds silly, but it was all quite surreal to me. I have never gotten to meet someone I loved musically, and tell them how much they mean to me. They simply put on one of the best live shows I have ever seen. Rex was amazing live, he put his all into it. Hell, they all did. I took some pictures, got them back, some turned out decent. the one of me and Fletcher did as well. I can't explain to you how wonderful it was to find out how nice they were to me. And how it was so easy for Fletcher to hug me, or put his arm around me and pose for a picture....totally surreal.

Totally nice guys. Totally one of the best bands out there right now. I can't express it enough. One of the best nights of my life. I can't thank Chris enough for exchanging words with Fletcher just so I could go and meet him. I wish I could have gotten to meet Rex, but seeing him live was quite enough, he was unreal.

I will shut up now.

wonderfully surreal.

I love Fletcher and Brandin, I love this amazing rock n roll band.

I just found out that the Josh Dodes band is playing here in Dayton. I should go see them too.

hmmm...I am tired and in a very surreal state.yet so comfortably happy.
