what is it like to meet the people who changed your life?
metric is definitely the soundtrack of my world and i have finally got to see them in concert and it was amazing!!! not only do they sound just as good in person as in recordings but the energy of the whole experience made it 10000000 times better! and if that wasn't enough...
i also saw it with my best friend, yummiestars! ♡
and we got there early enough to stand in the FRONT ROW. i mean, i was directly in front of the stage, right in the middle, in front of the amazing emily haines. ♡
and the opening band was alt/air ! ♡ i would go to a concert just to see alt/air so having them both in the same night was perfect!
there was a great mix of songs, several newer ones from synthetica, dead disco from old world, empty from live it out, and several from fantasies. PLUS, freddy/black sheep (my favorite song!) and they finished up with an acoustic version of the hooks/gimme sympathy. i was so moved i started crying! totally didn't expect that! i was just so happy to be there and i felt like it was one of the most awesome experiences in my life that would probably never happen again... and i just mentally decided that i was going to hold on to this moment forever... and i started crying. i don't know if it was from joy or sadness of losing the perfect moment- it was just. euphoric.
i love photography; i love to take my camera everywhere and shoot anything and everything. but after the first time i listened to gimme sympathy i took the song literally. all the BEST moments of my life... i don't have pictures because i would rather experience it than watch it through glass.
so i have no pictures of this momentous event, just my own memories of a night of music and dancing (ok, i guess one souvenir i have is the pains of mosh pit, haha).
but hey, what are friends for? helping you do the things you can't:
thanks yummiestars for amazing phone camera! thanks for being there with me (and the yumm yummm food afterwards)! and thanks emily, joshua, joules, and jimmy for the show!! hope to see you again someday, somewhere. ♡
