Title (and pictures!) stolen from Erin. The title comes from something Adam Lazzara (of Taking Back Sunday) said last night.
The concert last night was fucking amazing. To say the least. In the words of a friend, “It was almost too much to handle.” The only bad thing about it was that it was hot as balls. Humid outside, combined with the lack of ventilation in the venue, combined with a packed house ensured that this was one fucking hot night.
To start things off was Envy on the Coast. I wasn’t expecting much, but they were surprisingly good. Definitely worth a check-out. The lead singer (pictured below) was really crazy. One guy commented that he must have had Tourette’s or something.
Next up was Anberlin. This is the second time I’ve seen them, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. I do wish they could have performed a little longer, but I understand that they weren’t the main attraction at this show. ;) Below is lead singer Stephen Christian belting out the tunes:
Then finally was Taking Back Sunday. I was afraid that I wasn’t going to like this show as much, because TBS just recently dropped a new album a week or two back, and I wasn’t the biggest fan of it. I much prefer the older stuff. Thus, since this is the “Release Tour”, I was afraid they were going to play a lot of the new stuff. I am glad to say that my fears were assuaged after a few songs. They did play a few new songs, but most of the content was built on their older stuff. Finally, we have a picture of Adam looking pensive-like:
I have to say, the crowd at this show was fucking insane. Probably one of the best crowds I’ve ever been in, it was so ridiculous.
Now, if you’ll excuse, I’m going to get some water to continue my recovery from dehydration.
