So, last night rocked.

Seriously, the amount of fandom people at the show was amazing, and they're all awesome. Ljdar exists!

I drive down with [livejournal.com profile] trinity_clare, and [livejournal.com profile] olivia_circe, and there was talk of bandom things, Shakespeare, and turning male singers into girls via GarageBand.

So, the show was pretty awesome, although the sound at the Beat Kitchen kinda sucks. The first band had a Amy Winehouse-esque singer, but with less drugs.

Par Avion was a hilarious synthpop group that is tiny and awesome, and I love them for doing Daft Punk and Gwen Stefani covers.

Paper Rival was cool, a lot of audience interaction. There was a girl celebrating her birthday in the crowd, and the band borrowed her crown for their guitarist/bassist?. Not a bad band at all.

Empires rocked pretty hard, as usual, although crazy moshing dude was in the crowd again, and it was kinda annoying. At least his stage dive fell flat. There seemed to be a ton of energy in the crowd, despite the heat. The setlist was:

Valmont
I want Blood
Modern Love
All Night Long
The new song
Warning Mark
Anywhere
Spit the Dark
Midnight Land

I finally got to talk to Al, and he mentioned how he used to go to Henry Vilas Zoo when he was younger. I told him the band should come to Madison, and I believe that he asked me to find them a venue, contact them on myspace, and they'll come. So I might actually try to find them a place? And I have no idea how to do it, or even if I should? If they should come up here, are there any Chicago people that would be willing to come up to see them? I have an awesome couch, and live right by the Van Galder bus stop.

Then, the internet went to a diner, and there was talk of bandom thing, the relative height of many people, Philly and Jersey, and a billion other things that made this an awesome night. I ended up meeting a ton of new and cool people, and I can't wait for Panic in October to see you all again.

Does anyone know how parking is by the Beat Kitchen. Or would there be anyway I could park by/at someone's house/apartment and take the El?

Sorry, this is gonna be short since I'm getting ready for work and am drained. And sorry I didn't hang out with the lj poeple as much as I would have liked, it's just my friend Amy's last few days in the states and the last time I'll see her.


Angels & Kings.

Not what I expected, a little small. I did like the graffiti walls in the bathroom though.

The Show

Really, really, really amazing. There's this quality to acoustic shows that is just spine-chilling but really lovely. Sean had this cool effect on his voice which I really liked. I did feel kinda bad for Al not really playing much, but Ryan was the tank on the drums that he is. The setlist was Blood, Midnight Land, Valmont, Anywhere, Warning Mark, and Spit the Dark, which is great acoustic.

Hung out after the show with Amy, George and Wilson, just chatting until I ended up leaving. George is hilarious.

Funny story. I was outside with George and Wilson, and we were just smoking, when we discovered that the Q101 electric car wasnot working. Someone was adking around for jumper cables, which I carry in my car, so I ended up giving the Q101 car a jumpstart and got it working. And then as I was parking after that, Max and some other tech guys scared the crap out of me by screaming as I got a little close to them. Oh boys.

-run around trying to find friends and Tom so I can meet Amy
-meet Amy and friend (v. cool people), eventually find group in boiling hot merch room
-hang around chatting with people (some friends, some strangers), listening in on convo with Ryan (who has a pretty awesome tattoo, btw), discover that the aussie half of Ellen's band looks like a young Donna Noble (dude, so awesome), discover that the band enjoys their own beds, showers, and free laundry at mom's too much to really want to tour a lot and are going to be mostly camping (BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFFORD HOTELS, DUDE, EMPIRES, REALLY?) on the tour.
-Ryan has injured himself 4 times in the last 10 shows. Cannot believe that this guy is only 4 months older then me.
-eventual squee about Doctor who, chat with [livejournal.com profile] geryandgrey and Tom about House, Sherlock Holmes, and Swing Kids. Tomrad is, in fact, still Rad.
-am sad that I'm going to miss a show
-finally leave, chicago isn't a city that plays nice
-the OHGODOHGODIMGOINGTODIE drive home through torrential rains and flooding commences and finally ends after three and a half hours


Am now pumping myself for August and the concerts then: Empires (twice!), and Into Arcadia. Check out the latter if you like Interpol/Brit-esque post punk.

Correct me if I have wrong info, it's late, I'm tired, and venues are loud. I'll check my flist later, I need a shower, water, and sleep.

I feel bad that I don't really talk about Supernatural anymore. But it's summer, there isn't a whole lot of new anything besides bigbang, and I've rewatched my DVDs so many times that I'm kinda sick of them. That and I just really don't feel like reading actual SPN fic. RPS has corrupted me.

However, just wait until we get filming reports, and leaks concerning episode titles and it's close to season 4 starting.

Sorry flist. I know that not everyone cares about bandom.

WHEEEEEEEE! DRUNK POST! AND MY BOYFRIEND IS PLAYING GUILTY GEAR (YES, THE ONE WITH BRIDGET, THE TRAP), AND I AM AWESOME. AND REALY WASTED.

I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to make it to the farmers market this morning, but it started at six, and that's waaaaay too early for someone that normally gets to sleep around 4 am.

If there are any Australians on my flist, we're (my bf and i) are drinking Foster's, which is probably as Australian as Milwaukee's Best is Milwaukeean (that is to say, not at all representative of the country/city of origin).

Mandie, I fucking swear that I'm gonna start mapping out the Psychic!Bob story for you, once finals are over around the 16th. I will be a fic machine for you, woman.

Mifflin Street block party was today. I love Madison and it's drinking/political culture. They sorta go hand in unsteady hand in this town.

Ugh, and my parents are visiting me tomorrow. I hope we actually do something instead of sit around and talk, cause then that will be the most awkward thing ever. And I need groceries. I accidentally got regular oranges instead of blood oranges. And that is the reason why you don't go grocery shopping at 3 am.

It's funny to think that if I had been in the hardcore/underground music scene more back in high school I probably could have seen Matt Mixon and 7 Angels 7 Plagues live, which means that I fail. And that I love southeastern Wisconsin. US (SOUTHEASTERN WI) AND THE CHICAGO METRO AREA ARE LIKE THE NEW JERSEY OF THE MIDWEST. IT IS BOTH MUSICALLY AWESOME AND TERRIFYING IN THE RATE OF BOTH URBAN AND SUBURBAN DRUG USE AND CRIME.

This post took waaaaaaay too fucking long to post. I had to like respell every other word cause I'm that drunk.

HEY FLIST, I LOVE YOU ALL. YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY MAKE MY LIFE MORE AWESOME WITH BANDOM AND SPN NEWS AND FUNNY SHIT AND MUSIC AND JUST GENERALLY BEING THE COOLEST PEOPLE ON THE NET. HAVE FUN THIS WEEKEND BITCHES.
