My oh My! The Taking Back Sunday concert was definitely a one to remember. It was great. I got to see them with my lovely lovely Lizz, my best friends and fellow chinese food workers, John, Zack, and Lauren(the non chao praya employee). We ate at Hard Rock, and we had a great time there. After we got done eating, Lauren, Lizz, and Cathy(Lauren's mom) went shopping, while the triumverate went to go wait on line. While watching a jazz band play across the street, TBS drummer Mark O'Connell came out and out of excitement I screamed his name, scaring him. John, Zack and I talked with him for a while. He was an awesome and down to earth guy. We talked about New York, Memphis, their new album, their new video, there shows, and them being on TRL. He eventually went back in, and we were all in shock. There were tons of kids crowded around the door, while we just chatted away with the drummer. Eventually, the girls came back and we went inside shortly after that. Mark came up to us and talked for a bit. I asked him if he enjoyed Memphis and he seemed to like it. Leading off the show was a Brooklyn band named Suicide City. Oh my what an opening band. They were pretty raunchy, but man they were good. The lead singer was doing back flips. They also had a fucking great sound, very unique. Great opening band. Tokoyo Rose, what to say, what to say? They were strong, had a good live performance. They didnt really move, but their popolicious beats kept you bobing your head. Fred sang with them for a while, that was fucking kick ass. Now for TBS. Oh man, this was one for the ages. Sooooo many people. They played all our favorite classics and some new songs, and man they know how to interact with their fans. Bassist Matt Rubano had a water bottle in his hands and Lizz asked for it, he smiled and motioned for her to turn around and when she did he tossed it at her and smiled. It was fucking awesome. Eddie Reyes was tantalizing us with his water bottle( it was fucking hot in the New Daisy) He passed the water down to some girl and she sipped it and she passed it to me and I sipped it as well(I am already sick, so what the hell). I eventually passed the bottle down too. They ended the show and Mark threw a drum stick too Lizz. She was so happy, and with that I was too. I couldnt describe how great it made me feel to see her jumping around with a smile on her face holding her well deserved suvioneers. They infamous chant "One More Song" was used. It worked too. They played One Eighty By Summer and another song. It was fucking great. Mark came back with drumsticks and I screamed his name to throw me one, and he actually did. This time it wasnt stolen, but when I caught it, I accidently smashed it on Lauren's head. It is cracked because of that. I felt so bad. She was okay though. With that, we all went back to Laurens and had a great time. It was definitely a great day!
