I miss everything that happened last year- new friends, tprov, arttm, tss, 3 dates of two different tours, no drama, sil was still a band, hangs always, etc.
or tprov could just tour again thanks
THINGS I MISS ABOUT THIS TIME…
lol you messed some of these up but i agree
"tall people suck" we were destined to be friends because we all loved lance bass halvo’s jacket from old lady making fun of halvo’s jacket to his face you buying tbls snacks niagara falls and free parking ftsk m&gs lolol caleb’s pajama pants being yelled at through bus windows people saying they hate me bc other people love me texts from pb from bar across the street nate flynn playing me a new song every day on ipod dww sing alongs outside ftsk bus stories with pb austin saying “i love seeing you girls everywhere” to sandra and I and meeting his gf IT’S JUST SPECIAL TO ME OKAY
Good to know Caleb might be scared of thunderstorms? haha. Love Ziggy for letting me take cover in the ftsk tent during the storm. He is the best, I’m glad I’ve gotten to know him since Sassyback, he’s an awesome person. I even apologized and he said “no, you’re fine! I know you” hahha. So I hung out in the tent all day, it was great. Lean on Me/I Believe I Can Fly/Hawkbot singalongs were fun. Girl who toured with TProv that’s on Roadshow now was so awesome, I’m glad she came to the FTSK tent for chats with Ziggy. Who else can I talk about TDY with at Roadshow? And she made a shirt for a girl out of a bag so she wouldn’t get any wetter….coolest. Alex Gaskarth running through the rain was the funniest until I saw K Dirty walk up in a “poncho” he created out of a trash bag. Best. Austin was great as always, though he needs to not scare me with almost burning himself please. Chair tricks were funny, as well as “I’M THE LAST MAN STANDING!” I sold over $100 of merch and people legit thought I was merch person….strange, but awesome. All Time Low/Good Charlotte/Boys Like Girls/Third Eye Blind/LMFAO acoustic sets were SO GOOD. I’m glad my first and latest All Time Low sets were both acoustic, awesomeee. Singing along to songs with Austin was great, he is a great guy. Finally talking to Marc again was great, his fiancee is also great. And then Caleb looked like he was just going to pass out where he was standing so I asked him if he was okay and he asked if I wanted a picture….pictures were outlawed like 10 shows ago, please get more drunk with Jac Vanek, the gypsy of Roadshow. KB is just the best. “I know her, and her, and her, and her, and her, and I think I know her?” And telling Ray, “These are my friends. I’ve grown up with them for the last three years.” KILLING ME. Although him telling me to smell his cologne was weird, haha. AND HIM JINXING ME CAN THAT JUST NOT. Chats with him were just the greatest, love him.
I can’t wait for next weekend seeing them 3 days in a row again, a la Cheap Date. And in small venues. And maybe Niagara Falls and fireworks? Yes please.
I just don’t even know how to process everything that happened this weekend. Altoona was great, it was nice seeing a bunch of friends I hadn’t in a while. Reuniting with Nate Flynn was the best. So glad we decided to go to Allentown and that Wap could go with us. The car rides were so funny, I just enjoyed driving around with good friends. Talking to Sickboy about his tattoos was awesome, and it was nice to learn that Josh from Every Avenue remembers me although I talk to him very infrequently. Also, Dave bursting out from under the projector screen may have been the funniest thing I’ve ever seen at a show. Pittsburgh hangouts were fun, glad I watched STD with Krysten and Madison. Pittsburgh show was just…..crazy. I’m glad that basically all my good friends were there. It was great to talk to Sickboy for a while, he’s seriously the best. Also, glad Wap could make it out again, always nice to see him, haha. ALSO GLAD I LEARNED THE MOTEL 6 OPENING BAND DRAMA. I still don’t know if going to the bar with Sing it Loud and Josh was a good idea, dinner with Nate might have been better? hahha. The icing game they play is hilarious, though, and it was great talking to Sandra and Krysten while loling at all the drunk people. Kyle was the best person to talk to, his stutter just adds mystery to talking to him. Glad Pat Brown sat with us so he would come over and talk, haha. The walk back to the car was the worst. Too many pukes and peeing everywhere AND SOMEONE PASSED OUT IN THE STREET. Oh and people talking about letting other people pee on them. Great.

akron- got there super early, hung out with friends, bands finally started showing up. found out anarbor wasn’t playing aka missed their own headlining show I am still loling at this. Talked to Dan, some rando on the street gave them a cookie cake? I still don’t understand but he was like “everyone keeps giving us cakes and cookies…it’s like they’re trying to make us fat.” Talked to David, told him he better remember Krysten’s name or she’ll ask 343 times. Voted for Jericho and Truth. Went to the acoustic m&g thing, heard waste myself acoustic for like the 10th time haha. Dan told everyone to stand in front of him- “I’m not singing over there” The new song is awesome, I can’t wait to hear everything else. As soon as Dan stopped singing Sean was like “OKAY AWESOME so” and it was so funny idek why. Got to David/Andy and David was way too hyper from coffee, told him to stop, he was sad. idgaf. Went to the stage, watched all the bands. tprov played truth and Sandra/Krysten went crazy. Sang to Andy the whole set, idgaf. Afterwards, talked to basically everyone. Ryan from the audition told me I had awesome handwriting about 20 times and was mystified how I could write so small…then showed it to other people, can he not. Timmy was super funny, went through all the stuff st girl gave me. Talked to Topher about Sing it Loud. Random. I told him it was my 10th show though, haha. I don’t remember any conversations really idk. David called Amy and pretended he was from the bank. Tried to explain many things to Dan but he didn’t get it. Talked to Jake about Kieren SO FUNNY. “he thinks he’s a rockstar………….but he’s in Sing it Loud.”
pontiac- got to venue, realized it was awesome but there were WAY too many band sluts there. WAY TOO MANY. Sat on couch, jumped up for tbl, just being their biggest fan. Went to talk to Topher after…he was talking to some slut whose shorts were, not kidding, halfway up her butt. But I get over to him and he holds up a “vocal rest” sign. Oh sorry, I like to wear pants when it is 50 degrees outside, so I’m not good enough to talk to. So I was depressed until tprov came on basically, AWESOME. A boy from the show had the same hoodie on as David, we tried to warn him but he went to the bathroom at the same time as other kid, then imitated himself peeing can that not happen. Told Krysten the only thing that would make me happy is if tprov played jericho. Talked to Slade, he introduced himself, I was like “lol met you in pitts” “don’t try to make me feel guilty” “I just did” “that you did.” hahah. Talked to Ryan Seaman, told him I might go to Grand Rapids, he told me it might be acoustic because of van problems. He finally remembers me, lol. Watched tprov set. And guess what THEY PLAYED JERICHO I TEARED UP AND WAS SO HAPPY I COULDN’T EVEN HANDLE IT. No but really, that song saved my life idk will never tell them that though. Afterwards, talked to Topher, told him I might go tomorrow and how it might be acoustic and he was like n it won’t be. Told me he loved me via hand- awesome. not. girl he kissed/talked to was mackin’ on every other guy in the room- good selection, mr. talley. Krysten just kept going “no no no no no” to him and he was sad. no one gaf. Talked to Andy, some girls said they were the reason jericho got played I cheered, probably freaked Andy out. nbd. Talked about how the crowd sucked. Andy found money on the ground so he sang and danced. It was 30 cents. Creep girl took water bottle from his back pocket then was like “you can have it back” so he was like “n you can take it” and finally she left with said water bottle and he was like “I peed in that.” LOL but he was jking. Other girl showed him alcohol in her purse he was just like “……….cool.” A girl had glasses that lit up on so he was like “look at those glasses! they’re really tripping me out.” Talked to Gavin, he did some weird stretch/twitch so I was like wtf are you doing- he told us he twitched on stage a lot and has tourettes. we were like lol so he was like “THANKS GUYS” hahhaha. Talked about school. With Gavin. lol us. Got everyone together for giftcard, they decided they had to open it together and I was just like “CAN YOU NOT” Dan was like “thank you guys, woah this has a lot of money on it” Took group pic- I did not want to be in it so I was going to take then tdy was like “DANIELLE GET OVER HERE” hahahhaha. TDY loved Krysten’s sass. Hugged me and told me it was good seeing me again. Told him about Topher being a dick. lol. Told David about card being red and he told Krysten and Sandra that I was a vital member to the crew. lol though. Went outside, saw creepy stuff in corner of building omg still cannot get over. Ate crackers. Lurked, I felt creepy wanted to leave. Krysten called Dan over so we said bye. David said he was afraid of peeps. I said I’d probably go tomorrow and David was like “well we could list you” so I decided to go. He was very scared of me driving alone though, haha. Also started to back away into the dark so we loled and talked about Aaron from the almost. Then Gavin was like “what does your hoodie say?” then started to read it before I could answer. And he was like “I HATE WHEN SCHOOLS DO THAT. CLEVELAND IS NOT A STATE, I KNOW ALL THE STATES” and started to list them omg so weird. Walked to my car to give them Krysten’s note, it was in trunk so they were like “HOW BIG IS THIS NOTE IS IT ON A POSTERBOARD” lol though. Said bye, Gavin told me to @reply him my full name. Also told me to be so safe driving tomorrow. Jams all the way home.
grand rapids- @replied Gavin and David in the morning with my full name. Left and got to the show around 6:30. Talked to Topher, told him I was glad he was feeling better. Got inside, guestlist worked out, had a +1 did not need. talked to Topher again inside about bathrooms…this venue had one bathroom for everyone. Like one toilet. Crazy. Dan saw me and was like “you made it, good!” Said hi to Andy. Talked about the venue and how humid it was, he said the ceiling was dripping on the hey monday tour. gross. Saw a new soulmate, he was perfect. He watched every band from the back except tprov which he jammed to. He is me. Went to creep corner to watch set, David walked by and saw me and was like “HEY YOU MADE IT GOOD TO SEE YOU” Set was SO GOOD. Crowd was awesome, super quiet during SIYS being respectful. Dan was funny, got an encore again. Crowd asked for a second encore but they were like omg n hhahha. Got to hear secret love. Went over and talked to Slade about them playing Akron in between the Toledo/Kettering dates he thought it was like the best idea ever and said he’d talk to everyone about it. Talked to Chris, he told me to go to Chicago, because it would be weird without me there since I had seen them 4 days in a row. told him not to encourage me. Also told him I’d be to a couple dates of the cute tour probably, he told me I should go to like 4 of that. lol. Talked to Topher, said I’d see him at cute tour, said I might go to Altoona. So we talked about Wap. He was on vocal rest so the whole time I was just reading his gestures/mouth so that was cool. The slut from the show before was there, but he didn’t talk to her- I loled. Talked to Andy, he gave me a high five but it was like slow motion so we both just laughed. Talked about the calluses on his hands from drumming so I told him I used to get those from softball. Said he always wanted to play and the past two years all he’s asked for for his birthday is a baseball glove. I told him to join a summer league since they’ll be off. He said he wanted red Toms like mine, told me about how tprov was going to have their own Toms shoe but Toms never emailed them back idk. A girl asked him about his back tat so he was like “it’s a star with latin” and said what the latin was then said it means like “live your dreams” or something of that nature. He got it when he turned 18 and his brother got one too. Cute. He had a crowd so I left him. Talked to Dan, he questioned the fact that I had been going to class and shows, said most people would just be like “I can’t go to Grand Rapids.” Told him I thought about Chicago and he was like “wait would you go home then drive to Chicago” “lol no I’d probably get a hotel” “oh, I was really starting to question whether you were actually insane for a minute” omg hahahha. Said bye to him and he was like “it’s Danielle, right?” : ) Told him I’d see him in the fall, he said maybe : ( Talked to David. Gavin walked by and rubbed my back and was like “you got in alright?” David talked about how he buys so many shoes and clothes and told me he is a girl. Asked me if the show was weird alone and I was like idk I’ve been to shows alone and he was like “but you were together with friends then you seperated” complete with hand gestures, it was strange. Told me to walk and talk with him, but I was like lol I am just saying bye. He asked me if I got in alright, told me how he got my @reply and just emailed Sean and then like 2 hours later Gavin was like “Danielle’s coming to she show, we should list her” “I already did like two hours ago” So then David was like “BUT HE VOLUNTEERED FOR THE JOB.” “yea, he said he gets the least amount of @replies so it would be easiest” “he probably just wanted another @reply” He then walked by and I loled. Said bye to David, he hugged me way too tight. Said thanks again for the giftcard, told me they used it. Said they probably donated a bunch to Africa. I was like lol n it’s 5 cents every purchase. So we talked about how they should each buy their drinks separately so it would be like 25 cents and David was like “yea that would be a lot!” Also said they bought coffee for crew and I thought he said coffee Peru. hahhaah. Said bye to Andy, he told me thanks for coming again…and again…and again..and again. hahhaha. Said bye to Gavin. Left the venue. Got a ticket about 3 hours in because of a speedtrap. Awesome, probably 200 dollars down the toilet.
tl;dr idc this is just for my mems. I have now seen tprov 16 times, 15 of those in 15 months. lol.
Got to the venue, it was raining. So we hung out in the car and listened to Madison’s old mix cds filled with jams. Left the car and got in the line. While walking up the stairs Krysten said hi to Andy who was like “hey. HEY.” cool recognition. I had to pee so bad so I basically ran to the bathroom and passed Danny Stevens and Gavin on the way….Gavin said hi and asked how I was but I didn’t answer because I was too busy wanting to pee, hahaha. Jammed to The Bigger Lights and Anarbor of course. Went to tell Krysten something and backed into Dan. He said “oh sorry. OH IT’S YOU” COOL. He stopped to talk to me for a while, then he was surrounded by girls for pictures so I @replied him and was like lol sorry (to which he @replied back I found out when I got back to Cleveland, haha). Went and talked to Topher- told him about Musica, we talked about what dates I’d be at, talked about how we were, the usual. Some girl interrupted and he told her he was tired and was about to go get coffee so she asked if she could go with him and he was like “uhhhh I’m taking the van, sorry.” Went back and jammed to The Audition acoustic. Was pretty awesome, but I can’t wait to see full band on Tuesday. Then watched tprov obviously. Dan pushed some girl offstage because she crowdsurfed onto the stage and Gavin couldn’t stop laughing. It was the funniest. After their set went and talked to Andy- I am predictable. He hugged us all hello, and said to me “It’s good to see you again” made me smile. Told him I’d be at Akron and Pontiac and was like “….and maybe Grand Rapids” to which he was like “YES” and double fist pumped. Best boy. I don’t really know what else we talked about haha. Went and talked to Slade because everyone else was by him. We all enjoyed treats that Madison found on the bar, Krysten told Slade good luck crossing the border. Normal things. Talked to Dan…told him Andy’s trick for remembering my name and he was like “I know a lot of Danielles and they all tell me that” so I was like “well I didn’t come up with it idk.” We talked about him pushing a girl off the stage and about Anthony Green. In the middle of talking to him Danny walked up and asked Dan what the song playing in the venue was, saying he’d give him $100 if he knew it and Madison started to look it up so Danny basically attacked her phone. They love each other. Went outside to talk to David and creeped behind him to sit on the couch because he still had a crowd. He said hi to everyone, we got hugs, etc. Randomly came and sat next to me on the couch. We talked about wolves. Don’t remember anything else, lol. Went outside and hung out, shared koalas, gave Andy some gum, jammed great music. We sang POD and Andy said it was Gavin’s favorite band to which Gavin was like “NO IT’S NOT.” Basically just hung out for a while then headed home.
Sing it Loud/A Rocket to the Moon the past two days were AMAZING. This will be super long but I want to write down all the mems.
In Columbus we almost couldn’t get in because guestlist was screwed up and jammed to Sing it Loud in the lobby amidst many stares from MCS fans. Then we got in because Motion City’s tour manager is amazing, and jammed to Rocket. Went back to the lobby and saw Nate Flynn…being the best like always. Seriously my fave boy probably. He said that he saw my tweet about coming and I was like “uhh I didn’t post one, except @replying Madison about missing her” and he was like “well I follow you, so that must be why” “Uhhh no you don’t…..singitloudmusic does though haha” “Really? what’s your twitter name? I’ll follow you right now!” So Nate Flynn’s following me on twitter, awesome. And then he told me Sing it Loud’s entire tour history just because I got a year screwed up hahah. And we talked about Krysten’s bf and he thought it was the funniest. And I complimented his haircut, he loved it. Just talked to Nate forever, the usual. Then talked to Sickboy…WHAT. Talked to him roughly the same amount as Nate, this is crazy to me. I told him it was my 10th show, but I had never really talked to him and he was like “yea, but I’ve seen you around!” cool. He introduced himself and was like “I’m Sickboy. Or Chris. People in the industry call me Sickboy but fans don’t know what to do” “So it’s kind of like Halvo….” “YEA. HEY HALVO” lol. He asked if I enjoyed the set and I explained about problems getting in and how I got to see “Come Around” and he was like “BUT THAT’S OUR LAST SONG” “I know.” “Well if you have problems tomorrow, just come find me.” Love. We talked about how he just likes hanging out with people, he’s not a big fan of pictures/autographs. Talked about Bobby Garver because I mentioned Pittsburgh. Talked about Cinci warped and he was like “that was the worst! My kickdrum broke on the first song so I sounded like Owl City or something….I just wanted to leave the stage” Told me secrets…basically screaming in my ear but no one else heard, this mystifies me. He was catching fruit snacks in his mouth and threw them SO high so I golf clapped and he was like “did you see that?” and raised his eyebrows…so weird. Then I asked him if they needed anything and he said no…..so when I was like seeya he was like “ACTUALLY…..do you have any ways to get weed” CAN THIS NOT BE MY LIFE. So then I went over to talk to Halvo and he was like “HEY WHAT’S UP” “nothing, just drug dealing” “WHAT” hhahaah bein’ so concerned. Jammed to Motion City with Nate, talked to Nick Santino, talked to PB at the bar and some bar girls, etc. Said hi to Halvo again and he said “Hey, gotta do some business babeh” really. And he was trying to sell cds (very unsuccessfully) and was like “BUY CDS ALL DAY” and sang a song to us about singing cds. Then the venue lady was like “IF YOU’RE NOT WITH THE BANDS SEEYA” and Halvo said “If you’re not buying a Rocket to the Moon CD, YOU’RE CRAZY.” Really? Really? Talked to Kieren and told him about it being my 10th show, and he was like “of a bar band?” “uhh no?” “of this tour” “uhhh no of you guys.” “WHY.” Worst. Judged me, cool member.
Pontiac…Nate greeted us when we crossed the street, and it was the best. Introduced us to their tour manager, we went inside. Scoped out the venue, decided it sucked AND IT WAS SO HOT. HOTTEST I’VE EVER BEEN IN. Watched Eye Alaska, watched Sing it Loud. Best crowd, I was so happy, they were so happy. Talked to Nate and PB after, they were both amped about the set and we talked to PB about how the crowd was so much better and how they’d make more money on merch that night than the bigger shows on MCS, and how people grow up with MCS so it’s all adults really, etc. Left the area to get spots for Rocket, tried to slip past Halvo and he was like “HEY GIRL HOW ARE YOU?” “Good, how are you?” “I’M REALLY DRUNK.” “I can tell. It happens.” And I peaced, hahah. Watched Rocket set, it was the best. Said OHIO so loud during “On a Lonely Night,” they played “Single Ladies,” Brandon from Eye Alaska came onstage during “Sometimes,” I don’t know, it was awesome. Went and stood in hallway in front of green room bc it was an available space while we waited to talk to Nate and Halvo came out breathing really hard and I just looked at him and he was like “I JUST RAN UP THOSE STAIRS.” oh, okay. Talked about how his hair was messy and I was like “uhh you should fix your hair” “Is it messy?” so I started to pat it down and it wouldn’t move it had so much hairspray in it…awesome boy. Krysten told him he looked like Edward Cullen and he then said things about sucking blood and other creep things. She said “pop quiz!” “I’VE ONLY SEEN HALF OF THE FIRST MOVIE” “Not what the pop quiz is about.” hahhaha. Krysten gave him a sweetart and he was like “I can’t even eat this my mouth is so dry” haha weirdest boy. Left him to other girls and talked to Nate to give him his early birthday present. Gave it to him and he was like “YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THIS” before he even opened up the card. He was so happy while he was reading the card, I seriously picked out a GEM. Saw he got a Bees giftcard and whipped out his wallet and hid it immediately. I told him to hide the piece of paper the giftcard came on but he saw I wrote on it and he was like “I CAN’T!” Was just so appreciative. He was like “you guys are the best!” and like grabbed me for a hug and hugged me so tight. Seriously love him so much. Told him we’d see him outside, etc. Went outside. Sang Matchbook Romance with Nate Flynn while the drummer from Matchbook was standing there. Craig Owens interrupted a conversation we were having with Nate Flynn….really though. My. Life. Talked to Sickboy about how that night was so much better.” Told him it was now my 11th show and it was Krysten’s 9th and Sandra’s 11th as well. So he was like “you and her are 9-1-1. and you and her and her are 9-1-1-1-1.” “91,111” “I’ll be the comma.” lolllllllllll. Don’t even remember what else we talked about, some rando man came up with a Bud Light box on his head and Sickboy and PB were like awesome hat, free hat! etc. Sickboy got his weed. Said bye to PB, told him we’d see him in May, and I mentioned that it was the day before Halvo’s birthday and he was like “omg really” and said something about how he’d get Halvo drunk and I was like “he does not need any help.” We talked about Halvo being a weird/funny guy and then Pat Brown discussed with us how Halvo’s face looks on a daily basis, and how it’s more prominent when he’s drunk. the best. Then we left.
Probably left out so many mems. Longest blog ‘10. Well, until three dates of ‘Bout Damn Time happen probably.
Honestly, 2009 might have been the best year of my life.
I went to 53 shows and spent a majority of these shows with my best friends. I went to Indiana, Connecticut, and Maryland for shows for the first time. I spent two whole weekends with great tours and my favorite bands, also finding love for a few of my new favorites- The Summer Set, The Bigger Lights, and Down With Webster. Discovered The Friday Night Boys when I was introduced to them by Caleb. I talked to Chris Conley and he was the nicest man maybe ever. I met Madison and Kait! Krysten pretty much became my best friend from barely talking in the past. I saw This Providence nine times in one year, a band that I had pretty much disregarded in the past. I made great new friends in Indiana and Columbus. I went to meet and greets of bands that know me and just laughed with them and had some great talks. Took a daily Robi picture of him eating icecream at The Tavern. Compared flop tans with John Ohh. I saw Nick Santino knock over a pop can on his bus during an interview, and just leave it for another person to clean up. I talked to Gabe Saporta on my birthday for over an hour, for maybe the last time ever. Had so much fun at the Baymont and looking for KB. Made friends with Wapner after previously disliking him for no good reason at all and had a great weekend with him. Told Topher Talley way too much in a 3 minute conversation at Jingle My Bells- don’t even care. I got my license, finally. I drove so many places. I got a 4.0 in school for the first time since high school…and I transferred colleges, which surprisingly made me so much happier. Spent a ton of time with my family. Got pretty close with my brother and sister.
I don’t know why there’s so much hate for 2009, it was awesome. There are so many more memories that I can’t even think of right now. Even my grandma passing away couldn’t put a damper on the year. I love my friends, I love the bands I get to see all the time, and I couldn’t be happier right now.
