So on Wednesday we continued our show-going, and went back to San Antonio to see some band we didn't like or know the name of, Eighteen Visions :swoon:, Atreyu, and From Autumn to Ashes. We showed up early, got in later than planned (wow, thats rare :rolleyes:) and looked at the merch (of which I forgot to get some!), then went in to check out the first band. They weren't particularly good, and at our current position, we were surrounded by a buncha white highschool kids who really really didn't fit in or know what they were doing, it was wierd. So we went outside, leaving the uncared for performance behind, and when they finished (like 3 or 4 songs???) we went back in and squeezed our way to the center for Eighteen Visions. As soon as they started their sexy beastly sounds, some guy got bumped into and flipped out, and started a fight near us, which made me very angry. And from there, it just got worse, crowd wise. The audience, a majority of them, seemed to think and act like they were at a Metallica concert or something. Lots of crowd movement and shoving, rediculous crowd surfing, and some moshing here and there?! WTF, where is the hardcore dancing and the simple harmless rushing of the stage because they're all in love with the band? It sounds silly, but its better than the bullshit we had to deal with Weds night. Eighteen Visions stood up against this, their singer wasn't allowing people to get on stage/stage dive, told the audience to stop getting on stage/crowd surfing, and bitched at people for breaking thier shit. I love him. They did a mad badass performance too, esp compared to their last show, in November, @ Stubbs, which they definately weren't up to par for. Also, they played not only new stuff (which I expected them to), but some good faves as well.
Atreyu took the stage next, and we got a bit closer for them (though we weren't far to begin with). They rocked as well, a very good performance, and me and Taylor both seemed to enjoy these two bands shows that night more than the last time we'd seen each of them. They too played new stuff I didn't exactly know, but it was all good. After Atreyu finished, we left, as we didn't care for FATA, and we were tired/sore, not to mention soaking nasty fuckin wet.
The concerts crowd, like I said, was lamely out of control and out of the usual "hardcore" environment. It was pretty stupid, really packed, & too motionful, but at least me, and seemingly plenty of others, managed to help a lotta people who were getting knocked around, dropped, and etc. It seemed like most of the girls there were rather short, so anytime I felt somebody behind me straining to see around/over me, I let em infront of me, so I did good deeds for the day.
Last night we saw The Fragility Of, which is a band of some friends of ours. They ditched their second singer who we and many others thought blew. They now have a guy named Jake (I think) from my school who's two classes behind me. He did wonderfully last night, we thought, and the overall performance was their best IMHO. Some said differently, but those "some" were the band themselves, picking on flaws. Oh well, it was good, and cheap (free for me, thanks to my sugar momma) and I wasn't tired due to me getting 6 extra hours of sleep that morning.
I guess thats all for now, I cant think of anything else to write other than today fucking sucks since Taylor worked @ 4:30 and my friend (like, my only one?) decided to go to a show (a guy whom I hate's band) tonite that I just couldn't drag myself to, so I'm destined to be alone and bored tonite. Wonderful. Wish me luck.
