Last night, zeenell
and I saw The Academy Is... in Portland, Maine, and it was maybe one of the best concerts I've been to. The venue was smaller than my apartment, and we were basically in the second/third row from the stage? Despite sitting with the parents for both of the openers. YEAH. Plus, we were on the Carden side of the stage, so I got to spend the show probably-not-so-sekritly admiring his Carden-ness. From about two feet away.
Guys, Mike really does have the dorkiest smile ever. Also he doesn't stand still on stage for more than a couple of seconds, and is clearly at least in guy-love with everyone in his band. ( Ramblings about how awesome TAI... is under here! \0/ )
Okay, so now the bit everyone is actually here for: Pictures! \0/ Like I said, my pics with Mike (T____T) and Sisky (also T___T ) didn't come out, but my pic with Bill did, so yay! for that. =D And, y'know, I took all the other ones, so it's like I'm there in spirit. *gets her Tom Conrad on* Mostly the lighting was just really bad. Damn you, rotation of the Earth!! *shakes fist* But I tried to lighten these up in Photoshop enough that you can see them.( Pics under here! )
Post is public for the moment, but please don't swipe pics for re-posting anywhere, unless of course you are featured in said pictures. XD
