||~* time *~ taproot
Yeah. I've been forgetting to update in here about the show Tuesday, and since it's almost been a damn week, I thought now would be the right time to come back and update. lol.
Oki, it was a 3 hour drive to get to Virginia and as soon as we got into VA we got pulled. Shitty luck, I tell ya! We get to the venue and I go knock on the bus. I'm not loved enough cuz no one answered the door. :| We decided to go inside and get told that we can't bring in cigarettes, but we manage to get them in anyways, thanx to Sarah's boot. lol
When we finally get inside, Unloco was on stage finishing their set.. [we were listening to the first part of it outside while smoking one of our last cigarettes] It was good, but I think they forgot to do soundcheck cuz the sound quality was SHITTY. oh well.
Chevelle was on next and of course kicked ass. I can't believe this is the 3rd time I've seen them. I'm getting worn out of seeing them play live. :| Joe looked at me and Sarah and smiled. I guess he remembered me from the show they played at Ziggy's. :)
Taproot came on next, and despite Steve's lack of voice, they played a kick ass show. He didn't sing as well as he usually does, but hey, it's understandable. They played Mirror's Reflection, Myself, Breathe, Again & Again, Smile, Mine, I [and Steve walked all the way around the venue], Sumtimes [and Steve sang "and if I wasn't Steve I'd still just laugh at Steve"...lol], and Poem. It was great. I had to leave the floor during Sumtimes, though. I got my ass kicked. It was waay coolio watching the crowd and Steve interact during Poem. I wish I could have taken my camera in.
I went outside after that. There was NO way in hell i was seeing Disturbed again. They weren't that stunning live when I saw them the last time. Oh well. I hung outside fer a bit and met one of Mike's friends, Heather, who was there fer the show. She said that she was supposed to meet up with Mike and asked if I had seen him. I told her no, but that I was looking fer Steve and she and I started talking about where we're from and all that fun stuff. when she heard that I travelled so far she told me that I had to come hang out on the bus!
We waited fer Mike then decided to knock on the back window and he peeked out and let us on the bus! It was waay funny. Steve, Jarrod, and Eric and Cadaver [two of the techs] were chilling in the front lounge and Mike took us to the back lounge. Steve made a funny face at me on the way in.
Heather, Mike, and her friend and I chill in the back of the bus fer a bit and Steve decided to come back to come smoke a cigarette and spray sum Chloroceptic in his throat. I don't see how he could take the Chloroceptic, smoke and drink a beer. Ewwie. It wasn't even the green chloroceptic, it was the orange one...ewwwwwwwie. lol Steve and Mike ask me all these questions, ranging from where are you from to what do you do?, like work, or school and shit like that. They even asked me what I listen to besides them. lol. :) I got the lowdown on the tour and their feelings on David Draiman and Disturbed. I don't think I'm allowed to repeat any of that though. lol. We talked about playing pranks, we listened to music, talked about previous shows, watched the Deftones DVD thingie that the street team members get [and yes, I'm on the street team now], drank sum beer, and had a blast. I gave Steve his get well card from the message board. lol. That guy is a riot. He opened it and it's got this chicken on the front and it says "get well soon" and on the inside it's got the chicken saying "...and no matter what anyone tells you soup doesn't help!" lol. When he opened the card and said "hey! are you trying to say that i'm a cock?!" lmfao. I could have hit him fer that. I actually was playing like I was gonna hit him the whole time I was on the bus...lol. He laughed at me and braced himself, juuust in case I decided to. lol. I gave him the drawing....talk about sum1 being in awe. He couldn't believe it. or that I drew it all freehand. What can I say? I'm just good like that. :P He told me that he can't wait to get a frame. O.o Apparently he said that he's going to frame it. O.O Yeah. oki Stephen. Get yer eyes checked hunny. But yeah, it was a fun time hanging out on the bus with Mike and Stephen. good jokes, good pranks, good times. :)
The drive home sucked. Nothing happened. well...Sabby called, but I didn't answer the phone in time. :| It only played the first part of Again & Again [yes, I have a Taproot ringtone. Talk about being embarassed when my phone started ringing on the bus!] when it rang... I don't understand. Whatever. But we got back here at 5 am after leaving there at midnight. The boys were talking about getting ready to go when we were leaving. We drove past the bus and I climbed out the window of the jeep and yelled bye. lol. :) Steve looked at me funny again and said bye and I think I heard Mike say bye. lol.
All in all it was a wonderful time. Definately worth the 10 hours of driving that we did!! I wonder if Steve will be nice again and if Mike and will want to have peanut butter and vodka sandwiches with me next time?! lol.
