June 2---The Almost.


The Almost is one of my favorite bands, and seeing them tonight is that much more of a big deal because I have unsuccessfully seen them about 4 times over the last 3 years.

My train of bad luck began when Matt & I were supposed to see them play with Paramore in LA, 3 years ago, but for some reason canceled their set in the last minute.
Then, last summer, they went on tour with one of my other favorite bands, Envy On The Coast.
BUT,
the tour started in Seattle after I had already moved back to California,
then they played in California while I was visiting my fam in Tennessee,
and then, of course, they made their way to Tennessee after I had already left and gone back to California.

FINALLY, tonight, our schedules matched up and Hunter & I got to see them perform a rare, 1 night only show, because they're in town recording their next album.

They were awesome and the night got even better when I got a picture with Aaron Gillespie (the lead singer of The Almost & drummer of Underoath) !!! It was kind of really exciting even if I do sound like a pathetic, celebrity crazed teenager.
