November 15---Word to the Wise: Don't Wear Sandles to a Hardcore Show

Since Matt & all his friends have major "man-crushes" on the boys of Underoath, it was only appropriate that we would drive to Irvine to see their show. They played with Devil Wears Prada (who's vocalist {not to be confused with their screamer} I have a small crush on now) & Saosin. I scared the boys when I backed out of the pit momentarily while Saosin was playing (due to the fact that I stupidly wore sandles and was beginning to get my feet trampled on). I realized how much I am loved when Matt & his friend Sam spent Saosin's set searching the venue for me, thinking that I somehow got pushed into the center of the pit and was getting hardcore danced to death---even though getting "hardcore danced to death" isn't exactly possible and even though I only stepped a few feet back from them and was perfectly safe.
*I'm realizing that I think I've accidentally made this show look like a dangerous mess so I just want to re-assure you, mom & mama b, that it was a perfectly safe concert, I just wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed by wearing sandles.*
Underoath's set was outstanding (especially since they played an encore of an additional 3 songs from their new album). It was a first for me being at a show with Garr B-Bacher instead of Kate (his older sister/my best friend and a usual "show see-er" with me). It was also ironic because she and Matt Q were at the Carrie Underwood concert in San Fran while we were in Irvine.

OK, I was not worried by this!!! Can't believe you will spend $$$ to go hear stuff like this, but that is your thing I guess.......I did have to laugh at my favorite saying of "sharpest tool in the shed" as you described yourself. No that was not a smart thing to do, but again that is your thing......especially when it is 90degrees in November. How stupid is that I ask you??? You need to come here where it has not gotten about 45 for the past several days. Very chilly fall weather.

ah! i hate this weather. i wish it was 45 here!
and mom, i think you would have a great time at a hardcore show....ok maybe not, but it would be pretty funny to see how you'd react at one :)

You make me laugh out loud!!!! Couldn't you just see me at one of those hardcore shows????........I don't think so. I don't even enjoy listening to it here at home. How could I enjoy an even louder version???? with crazy people stomping all over others toes!!! No, don't think that is for me. I will stick to my smooth jazz or country. The symphony has been very nice and relaxing also.....
