Motionless In White concert experience

(Me and Sam out in the cold lookin silly...well me at least lol)

Ok soooooooo

I had already paid for my ticket online and printed it out. My boyfriend and my friend Sam were going to buy their tickets at the venue. Terrible mistake. We wound up an hour late which was somewhat ok b/c the band hadn't gone on yet. There were three opening acts. So as we go up to the venue door we see a sign that says "Sold Out". My heart dropped. And to make it worse I found out that it sold out earlier that day. Basically if we had gotten there earlier we wouldn't have been in that predicament. Now I still had my ticket and I could go but I didn't want to leave my bf and friend. I was the one who dragged them out there in the first place. We just stood outside for a while trying to get extra tickets from people. We weren't the only ones out there doin that either. There were a lot of people upset that they couldn't get in.

So after standing outside for a while not knowing what to do a man over hears our convo and asks to buy my ticket off of me for his daughter. He said that she's really upset and is crying in the car over it. At first we didn't believe him but then he shows us his car and I see the girl in there. Out of the goodness of my heart I agree to it. He paid me 20 bucks for it, more than what I actually paid which was 16. As the girl came out the car I could tell she had been crying (she looked like teenager too...15 maybe). But here's what gets me....this bitch did not thank me nor did she even look in my face. Her father thanked me though. If I was in her situation I would of been hugging the fuck out of that person! Well no matter my conscience felt good. I expect some good karma to come my way lol. I guess you could say some did. Right after I helped that girl I turn around to see Chris fuckin Motionless (lead singer). He was peeking out of his trailer van getting pizza. I also saw Ricky Horror (guitarist) in the background! In that moment I could of died. From that point on I knew what my mission was. To stay and wait out this concert so I could see him and the band after the show and hopefully get a picture! Luckily and thankfully my friend Sam and my bf were down to ride it out with me.

While waiting in the cold we met a few friendly people who were coming in and out of the concert and others still trying to get in like us. Nice to make some random friends. After a while we really couldn't put up w/ the cold anymore so we went inside to the bar area of the venue and got some foods and drinks. I could hear the band playing through the walls. I felt like crying and bashing my head in v.v. Soon enough we saw people leaving and we dashed for the door and waited over by the van. Me and Sam felt hella old b/c there were some other girls there waiting too who were in the age range of 13-16. Like they were fangirling the fuck out and being hella annoying. I used to fangirl over bands, hell I still do but I never acted like the way they did. I wanted to punch them all and felt sorry for the band members having to deal it as well. What also really upset me was some scrawny ass guy who tried to have some authority over us and yelling at us. Nigga I'm a grown ass woman! Yell one more got damn time we gon' have a problem. I'm not like these 13 yr olds out here actin a fool. I was just ready to get my pic and head the fuck out before I started a brawl.

About 20 minutes later Chris Motionless comes out and everyone got into a line. I was third in front! When my turn came around I was nervous as fuck. I couldn't even look at him in the face for more than two seconds >w< . Sam took the pic. It was really dark so she tried to edit it to make it brighter. I think she did a mighty fine job! lol This pic may be grainy as fuck but I love it anyways. He was a sweetheart. 

One day when they come back I WILL go see them live and I WILL have a better camera on me. I want a pic w/ the whole band next time!! >8D

Well yeah...that's what happened. I went. Didn't get to into the venue but I got a piccy. I'm semi-satisifed lol.

My new obsession: Motionless In White

I love music and I love when I find new things to listen to. Recently (about three weeks ago) I came across a band called Motionless in White. I'm not really sure on what genre to put them in but if I had to I would say horror metalcore/post-hardcore w/ a dash of industrial lol.

I'm surprised myself that I've fallen this hard for them. I haven't felt this way about an American band since 30 Second's to Mars's first album, which was in like 2006-07? For a some years I just stayed w/ foreign rock groups and shit from the early 2000's.

I simply cannot get enough of their sound and look. Love a man in make up! I'm constantly talking about them on facebook and reblogging pics of them on tumblr. I even remembered every one of their members names and what they play in less than three days. It usually takes me a while >w< I'm too ready.

During my constant reblogging of them on tumblr something hit me. I need to see them live! And lucky for me they are on tour right now and will be in Chicago the same time I will be there for my bf's b-day! FATE I TELL YOU!! FATE!!!! The concert is Dec. 13th...sooo basically next week lol. So now I'm dragging my bf and two other friends w/ me to the concert. I had gotten my ticket like two days ago but I still feel so anxious. I haven't been to a concert in a loooonnnggg time...not since 2008 when I went to the rockstar taste of chaos tour. Wait...well....I saw the Japanese band LM.C this past spring at Anime Central (anime convention). But I don't count con concerts lol >w<  Lets just say I haven't seen an American band since 2008.

This was the first song I heard by them, "Devil's Night". After this it was a match made in paradise. I went and listened to all of their other songs too. And I got both of their albums (there's only two out so far). They look sexy as hell headbanging in the rain...just sayin v.v


Another one of my favs is "Puppets". This song gets me amped as fucckk!!


I'm too ready for this concert. I CANNOT WAAAAAIIIITTT!!!! FFFFFFFFFFFFF

But of course you have the shit heads on youtube who like to diss on the comments. I've seen some people saying if they didn't wear make up they'd be good. How the fuck does wearing make up constitute whether or not a band is good or not!?!?!?! If it's good then it's good! Who gives a fuck if they like wearin eyeliner. If the talent is there then get the fuck over it. I'm tired of these bands and singers comin out in jeans and t-shirts anyway lookin like truckers and trailer trash. Where are the entertainers!?!?!?  -sigh- whatever man.

But yeah...they are my new thing. I loves them. And I will be taking my parents camera so I can record and take piccies! PEACE OUT GIRL SCOUTS!
