since almost every time i look at a blurty, i see ppl.'s entries on the gc/nfg concert and stuff so i decided to tell ya about what happened when i went...even though it was on April 17. lol
we got tix like a month and 15 days before the concert and we got some of the suckiest seats. the concert was at the pittsburgh petersen's events center (which is Pitt's basketball stadium). we had seats almost up in the peanut gallery.
i went with lacey, reona and liz....lacey's dad took us. we rode there a little late and got there at like 6:40 (it started at 6:30) so The Disasters were already playing. By the time we found our seats they had like 3 songs left.
the speakers were so loud that i couldn't understand any thing that they were saying. we were so close to a fudgin speaker that our seats shook every time the guy started singing. but anyway, since we didn't kno any of their songs we went down and were like flooded with ppl. buyin t-shirts and crap. lacey said she wanted to get a nfg one so we kinda pushed our way through a little but she changed her mind and said she'd look at it later.
so we just walked around....i called my mom to tell her i got there and then we just walked around looking for the bathroom.
we looked a little but decided it was too far away so we went back up to our seats and Less Than Jake came out. They were funny too.....the guy (i couldn't tell who exactly was talkin cuz we were so fludgin far up) was like, "We were in Chicago last night (im not sure it was chicago...can't remember) and you know what we fuckin said? WE're GOIN to Fuckin Pittsburgh. Everyone started like screaming and stuff, lol. we stuck around for a couple songs and then lacey and i went down to buy a t-shirt. there wasnt like a-n-y people there then so we just like walked up and bought the gc shirt that said life, hope, truth, trust...... and the tour dates on the back. she got one too.....even though she wanted the pink nfg shirt.
so my money was blown (i only had a 20) and i was really dam thirsty but oh well. i drank outta reona's like jumbo-size soda...even though it was kinda nasty.
we just walked around now. we were looking for dan and jenny & jess. then, we went up to the seats and we were expectin nfg to come out but instead a light hit the GC sign and everyone started screaming.
i grabbed liz and told her we were gonna sneak down closer....because we couldn't tell benji from paul.
we went right down to the riser seats ( which we pretty close to the stage). we knew that we couldn't get to the floor.....cuz the man with the flashlight was checkin ticket stubs. so we just ran down the steps and found two empty seats that were pretty close. at least now i could see their faces.
we were there for like 5 songs when this guy came back and was like, Those are my Seats. So we were like, Sorry Mister, these are ours but moved over. then i noticed the little 5th graders he was chaperoning. i was like, dam. why the fudge are these little, little kids here? that annoyed the fludge out of me.
we went out onto the steps and started jumpin and stuff....tryin that the flashlight dude wouldn't see us...but it didn't matter because there were like tons of tons of people behind us anyway and the jerkoff didn't seem to notice 15 people on the steps jumpin to the music.
so i was like completely dead jumpin around down there. benji was like, now, there is something important i'd like to talk to you about....suicide. i consider all of you my friends and i've seen too many of my friends die. i'm tellin you to hold on...because in a few years you'll be glad you do. me, joel and everyone here is here for you. so they played hold on....and i held my cell phone up...thinkin nat (my cousin) was on the other end, since i hit speed dial but when i took it back down i saw i didn't hit the right button. i told liz to phone nat (my buddy) but she didnt.
so they they started playin riot girl and benji's like this is for the chicks.....how many of you are PUNK ROCK chicks? so like every girl there started screaming. (luckily, the little poser 5th graders- who don't even know what punk rock is- weren't in eye sight.
then i think it was joel who said... now, even though i gotta punk rock chic that im ready to settle down with, all of you chics out there will always be my Riot girl which was funny to me at least.
then they went away and liz and i like ran back up the steps because by now lacey's dad was probably worrying.we got out and we saw dan....which delayed us more, lol. but it was nice seein someone u knew out of a thousand you didnt.
everything sounded like it was underwater....and i was dying of heat, and my arm was dead. but we ran up and got lacey to see dan cuz she wanted to see him if we found him.
luckily we didnt see mike though.....i hate him.
so we just walked around. liz and lacey ran up to see nfg...i did too but i left to go sit with reona....who had a bad headache.
so reona and i went down to the main enterance and saw one of the disasters signing autographs. i didn't get one cuz i don't kno who he was....i'm such a dork.
so we got our picture taken on the little civic tour machine and looked at the band's guitars.
then we walked the million steps back up the the 3rd level. we just hung out there, until lacey's dad came out and said it was almost over. we just stood there until lacey and liz came back out. we were gettin ready to go when we finally saw jenny and jess. we talked with them for like 10 minutes (and saw jenny's really pathetic spiky bracelet....i mean PATHETIC...lol) and left.
we got a free cd of ltj and fall out boy and a sticker sayin that they'd be playin at a club tomorrow.....but we didn't end up goin.
so, that's my night. i'll never, ever, EVER forget it cuz i had the best time in my life.
just wanted to share this with ya <3
