Okay. This is going to be a blog for my adventures with Black Veil Brides on April 11th.
Well, I went to my aunt's house on Saturday night because we were going to leave early Sunday morning to start driving to Richmond. Well, we ended up staying up to 3:30 am watching Sherlock Holmes but we went to bed after that. I got woken up around 7:15 when my cousin decided to come home. Went back to bed and got woken up again an hour later, because Chris decided to clean his room, rather noisily. Turns out Sherie's clothes weren't put in the dryer the night before so we had to wait till about 10 am before we could finish getting things together to leave and for us to take showers. We left about 10:30 am and drove for about 5 hours, jamming out the entire way, taking pictures, and tweeting. X3
I kept getting anxious and giddy. I was going to see Black Veil Brides!! We ended up in traffic congestion, we made me more anxious. So anyway
. We got there and checked into our hotel, which was GOREGOUS!!! Then ventured out to find Sherie a pair of shoes. She got me a pair of black knee high converse and a pair of shorts!!
On the way back to the hotel, we saw this poster hanging on a building. It was a picture of Obama with the Joker makeup on that said Socialism on the bottom. We tried to get a picture of it before we left but couldn't find it. =/
Anyway, got back to the hotel started getting ready. My shoes took forever to lace. X.x Called a cab and went to the club. When we got there the line was horribly long. Got to the door, guy looked at my I.D. and said, "Almost." and chuckled.
One of the most embarrassing things happened when we got inside. She was showing them her paper where she had bought tickets online. I was looking around the club, and a line of guys just walks by and Jake Pitts is at the end of it. I go into fangirl mode and start squeeing my head off and fast bouncing/jumping and spin around. My aunt is all WTH and I start going "Jake Pitts. Jake Pitts. He's walked towards the back!" She looked over at him and didn't tell me till later that he was looking around trying to find where the noise had come from. So that's embarrassing part one.
Anyway, we sat and listened to a few bands, while I was looking for Jessika, their friend and merch girl. But came to find out that she wasn't there. We didn't know the name of the first band, then Apparently We Can't Fly came on (they were pretty good), and then Sleeping With Sirens who was amazing!!! And then finally, Black Veil Brides, I was in the second row.
I got two short videos of them performing, ANDY GRABBED MY HAND THREE TIMES AND INTERTWINED HIS FINGERS WITH MINE ALL THREE TIMES!!!! AND I GOT TO TOUCH JINXX'S GUITAR!!! I miss a few really, really good photo ops, like Andy reaching towards my camera and Andy on Jake Pitts back. XD But that's okay.
I got really light-headed after they finished. I had been jumping, screaming and rocking out!! I'm surprised I was hoarse or deaf after that. XD Also, someone at the back of the venue had come just to make fun of the bands. They were retarded!! Someone kept flipping Andy off and someone else tried to punch Andy!! Andy started talking to him
..you just had to have been there.
Andy told him to suck his dick. XD
Well, we walked to the merch table to wait on Black Veil Brides for autographs. While waiting, the singer of Sleeping With Sirens walked by selling cds, Sherie wanted one so I had to catch him. He was so nice!! I got an autograph and Sherie got her cd case autographed. We both had gotten pictures with him but they disappeared.
So we'll get them again sometime. ^_^
After that we stood there talking to two girls we had met in the crowd. Jennifer wasn't paying attention when Jinxx walked by her. I pulled her sleeve and said Jinxx is behind you!! She spun around fast and I yelled JINXX!! He stopped and smiled and waved. I waved back and said HI JINXX!! He came over and talked for a minute. We all got pictures and autographs, but then he got swamped by the crowd and I felt bad because I had caused it. X3 He made it to the table when the rest of Black Veil Brides arrived. I swear, people are impatient. I was at the front, at the table, and I kept trying to move down so people could get to Jinxx, and Ashley Purdy but they kept pushing me and the table forward. I asked Jake I believe if Jessika was there, he said no and I told him I brought a comic book for her and asked if he could give it to her. I told Jake about me running the Trixy account on twitter and he was like "That's you? That's awesome!" and hugged me. ^_^ And I told him about how we have sushi conversations. My aunt told him about the accident when we first got there, and he admitted he had heard it and wondered what it was. I blushed and said, "Yeah that was me." He laughed and said it was okay. I then said, "Now if you hear that again this summer, you'll know who to look for." He laughed again and gave me hug. ^_^
Then I got down to Sandra and told her that my aunt loved her. Also, I told them all that my aunt drove me five hours to see them perform live after listening to just one of their songs. They all thought that was awesome!! Then I got to Andy and didn't get to talk to him very much at the table but I did talk to him outside later. After all that, Sherie and I just sat in a booth resting while From First to Last started their set. I was rocking out in the booth. I probably looked silly, mainly because we were by ourselves away from the stage and I was still rocking out!! From First to Last's final song was about to start and they said they weren't going to play any of the old songs after tonight. The last song was Ride The Wings Of Pestilence. My favorite one!! And I screamed and ran to the stage. I jumped, screamed the lyrics, and just rocked the hell out!! Near the end of the song, all the remaining bands went on stage and just rocked out and it was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!
After that I went to find the members of Black Veil Brides, because they all said they'd do a video shoutout to some friends of mine that couldn't make to any of their concerts. I ended up talking to the different members for a while. I went outside to wait. Andy took a picture of me and Matt Good.
Ended up talking to Chris Stewart for about forty minutes. He was awesome!! He was trying to stay awake, so I talked to him to try and keep him up. I got a picture with him. He had come along to help them out. Andy came back outside and I had him sign some posters for me. After that he stood there waiting. I think he thought I had more for him to sign. XD Then he struck up a conversation about Ronnie Radke because of my Team Radke shirt I was wearing. We talked for a few minutes, then he went to make a phone call.
Sherie was ready to go, and I still hadn't got my video shoutout, and the whole band was outside now. So Chris offered to help me round up a few of them. We ended up getting Jinxx and Andy to do it. We messed up the first take and did a second. I thanked them and hugged them. I told Andy that Shaena had wanted me to tell him Hi. And he said, "Yeah, we know Shaena. She's cool." And he hugged me again and went to make another phone call. X3 I was talking to Jinxx, and thanking him again. Then I asked him to do a shoutout for Shaena. All the shoutout videos were horribly dark. I didn't think to ask Chris to shine his light down on them till afterwards. =X
Anyway, Sherie and I were about to leave. I had said my goodbyes to Jinxx and Chris. I remembered I had brought something to show him. A gag gift I had been given when I was younger. A female chastity belt. XD I told him I had showed it to him and Sammi on stickam before and wanted to bring it to show him in person. I dug it out of my bag and held it up. He laughed and said, "OMG. I remember that!!" He took it out and laughed and started messing with it. He put his finger in the hole with the plastic spikes and tried to pull it out and was like, "Ow. Ow." And just kept laughing. He was searching for his phone to take a picture of it and send it to Sammi, but didn't have it on him. He seemed kind of down about it and asked me to send him a picture of it. I was about to leave when I was just like, "You know what. Here. You can have it. It just sits on my shelf at home and gathers dust. At least if you have it you guys can laugh about it." Jinxx seemed shocked. He was like, "Really? You're just giving it to me?" I nodded and he laughed and gave me a really big hug. I said goodbye to Chris and Jinxx, found Sandra and Jake and gave them hugs and told them all I'd see them this summer during their summer tour. They all said they were going to a Denny's with the other bands.
I was sad to leave. But I had soooooo much fun. We went back to the hotel ordered some dinner while I uploaded photos and videos. I ended up staying up till about 5 am. X3 Had to get up at 9:30 to take a shower and go get some breakfast. We checked out of our hotel, tried to find that picture of Obama, and jammed to Sleeping With Sirens.
The only downside was we got pulled over when we were close to the North Carolina border. =/ I tweeted and tried to upload videos on the way back. After we got back to Albemarle, I ended up going camping with Tim, Chad, Jackie, Jason, and Dale. We had lots of fun. ^_^
I can't wait for this summer!! Black Veil Brides are headlining a huge tour this summer sponsored by Hot Topic!!! AND their debut album will be coming out on July 6th!! I can't wait!! I plan on seeing them again this summer!!
All in all, it was the best night of my life ever!!! I had so much fun and met some new awesome people. ^_^ The band members were so nice and very down to earth. It was Sherie's first concert and she was surprised by the band members. She didn't think that they would just hang out with the fans like they did. Her and I both had the times of our lives!! Can't wait to do it all again this summer.
Here's ALL the pictures!!! ^_^www.facebook.com/album.php?aid…
