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.”
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.
@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.
