I have almost seen them three times now. Between last minute cancellations, injured band members, and snowstorms, it has never happened for me. Until last night.
Anberlin's video for Feel Good Drag
Yesterday I went to Toronto, and experienced one of the best shows of my life (which is saying a lot, I've been to hundreds of shows). My only complaint is the acoustics in the venue were terrible and because I was the very front row, I didn't hear any vocals really. Luckily, I knew all the words anyway.
Afterwards, I was on a high and didn't want it to end so a few of us waited around outside the tour bus. It was pouring rain at this point, but we're dedicated so we stood out there for an hour before the guys realized we were out there and came out to say hi. They were all so genuine and grateful, and offered to sign things or take pictures with us.
They didn't play my favourite song, but it's an old one from three albums ago so I guess I can't really expect them to. They did have a good mix of old and new ones though, I was impressed.
OH YEAH and they just followed me on twitter. I pretty much spammed them last night and then this morning I tweeted how much I loved it and they followed me and tweeted back. Ultimate fangirl status right there.
Now I'm just trying to figure out if I should go to their concert tonight by myself. I just wish it wasn't so far away....
Flawless song, my favourite ever
