alrighty kids... here goes nothing....
so, i was running very late on tuesday (i left an hour later than i wanted to, then realized 20 minutes after i left that i forgot the tickets... then began my 3 1/2 hour drive) so, i drove the 3.5 hours home, stopped REAL quick to pick up some stuff, then was on my way. drove an hour to the house of blues, got there at about 4:10, got confused and had to do valet parking ($23- yuck). finally, though, i made it in. all the m&g people had to sit and wait in the lobby and finally at 4:30 they told us to line up. after more waiting,they called out all he names and we waited again... then, at like 5:00, they walked us upstairs, in a single file line (i felt like i was in school). then, m&g... they were standing behind a table and three of us could go up at a time to get stuff signed and get pics. i had them sign my ticket because we were told they were going to scan them. turns out, they rip them. so, the dude ripped off zac and -aley. so, i got jeremy, josh, and H. so, yeah, but whatever. i got to talk to them for a second, and that was cool. wish it was more informal though. after we went through the line, i finally realized Ashley was right there, said hi to her, then i ruhed in to get a good spot. ash followed soon after, so we got to chat and stand rigt up front for the show.
after waiting or what seemed like an hour, love arcade started. i thought the music as OK, but the lead singer seemes drunk and none of them seemed like they were really into it. not a fan. next was houston calls. they were fun, i liked the music. the keyboard player was right in front of me and he was fun to watch. he just gets so into it all and he made me laugh. then, this providence. they were really good. i liked their set a lot. i was especially impressed when they started talking about their faith. it was cool for them to just put themselves out there and really speak from ther heart.
then, after another especially long wait, our faves came out. they rocked the HOB. as soon as miz biz started to the very end, i was impressed. they really did great. i was so excited the whole time. i danced my butt off, even though the guy next to me was giving me dirty looks the whole time. i swear to you, every time i began to move, he stared at me. dude, its not my fault you felt the need to stand with your arms around the girl in front of you. we are at a show- you are going to touch other people besides the girl you are groping! and people are gonna move!
sorry, random rant. so, yeah, the show was awesome. afterwards, i wanted to get a shirt, waited a while to get to the merch table and realized that i left my cash in the car. yeah, im dumb. so, after that, i left. i was really tired and my feet hurt real bad, so i just left. im not sure i anyone stayed around, but i had the feeling that they wouldn't be coming out to chat because they were on Q 101 right after the show. i listened to that station the whole way home and finally heard it when i got back. it was a good little interview and acoustic performance.
so, thats my day. it was a good day in the end, so i was happy.
here's my pic: sorry, i look bad. but they're awesome.
and heres the setlist, to the best of my memory (not necessarily in order)

so, thats it. enjoy.
