So remember how in my last post I mentioned a concert?
Well here is part two of the adventure!
Do you also remember how I said it would probably be ridiculously long with perhaps blurry cell phone pictures?
I'll try not to make this too long, but come to find out band members aren't very helpful in standing still so you can snap some great shots!
The concert I went to was for the band, Switchfoot.
I have grown up listening to their numerous songs and enjoy them as a band, but I wasn't exactly a fangirl.
It actually makes the whole concert experience more fun, in my opinion.
Normally I walk away from the show awed by the experience, performance, and bands themselves.
And then I usually become a fangirl.
When we arrived at the theatre, we waited in line for about 2 1/2 hours, and got great seats that were in the 4th row! But then a group of people started forming at the VERY FRONT of the stage...
Can you guess where I ended up?
There were two opening bands for Switchfoot, the first being The Exchange.
They are a pretty showy band that is willing to interact with it's audience and have fun on the stage.
At one point the main singer ( pictured ) just ran along the edge of the stage giving everyone who had their hands out a high-five.
Yep. I got a high five. ;)
At one point, Brit ( main singer ) poured water on a drum set making a water show to the beat.
Later, he grabbed a cymbal and circled around the stage playing it.
Next up was Kris Orlowski.
His sound is mellow, but that doesn't mean he didn't produce as great a show as the first opener.
His guitarist knew his stuff!
I'm pretty sure this was the point right before Jon Foreman ( main singer ) shook my hand.
I became a fangirl after that moment.
Jon really interacts with his fans/audiences making really memorable shows.
This was him leaving the stage to go sing out in the middle of the crowd.
Tim Foreman ( Left ) and Jon Foreman ( Right ), brothers.
Someone from the audience sent a flag up to the stage that had a song title on it for them to play.
They didn't play the song, but Jon did wear the flag as a cape!
Afterwards we found our way to the merchandise booths where my mom and I met Kris Orlowski ( super nice guy ), and my mom purchased his tuneful CD, which he signed.
I didn't have enough money on me to buy his CD, and I was stupid and didn't have paper or a pen, so I asked if he would be willing to sign my arm.
Even though I bought a shirt from The Exchange, which they signed for me, I hadn't thought to do so till after all of them signed my other arm.
