My night made of awesomeness

My only regret from the Blue October concert was not having my actual camera with me. I used my phone but the videos and pics are pretty blurry and the sound isn't so hot either. *sigh*

But oh lord, was the concert incredible! We were early enough that we got into the line while it was short so we ended right up front. Only a few feet away from the band. Amazing. My feet ached from standing all those hours but so worth it. Let me tell you, Blue October does a killer show. I was blown away.

Though we were two hours from home and it was already late we hung around for the chance to see the band. Ok, so my sister wanted to stay more then I did but I was so glad we stayed. I think it was after 1 am by the time the tour bus pulled up. Sadly, we were walking down the street to the parking garage. Since we saw the bus behind us we hauled ass, got the car and went back, parked on the street and ran over - there they were! My sister got all their autographs. Even the lead singer, Justin came out (something I hear is rare) and let people take pictures and signed tickets and stuff. They were such cool guys.

Ok, I'm done with my groupie rant for now! I never get to do stuff like this, I don't even know the last time I went to a concert, so this was extra special in every way. Yes, it was a very good reason for missing a day of revisions.

(yes that's my sister there at the end - Yay Jenn!)

this is great, Blue October’s new stuff is so good! I hear they will be featured on 90210 tomorrow night too. Has anyone heard any of the new songs on the radio yet?
