The 6th of March will undoubtedly be one of my highlights of 2014. I had one of the best nights EVER. If I were to describe the concert with a single word, I'd say it was PHENOMENAL. It was amazing, really. Despite being down with the fever the night before, I tried every single method to recover swiftly and on the day itself, I was feeling much better and was super stoked to see MP live already.
I was (and am still) so happy to the extent that I felt like I might spontaneously combust. There are countless of reasons why MP's one of my favourite bands of all time.
When I was 15, I fought a lot of private wars in my head. And I had always found solace in music. Most of the songs that I listened to at that point of time - they'd literally gotten me through so many sad and self-destructive days - were played live by Mayday Parade that night. It was as if the setlist was made just for me!!?!! Crazy. In spite of my terrible sore throat which I successfully ignored from 8 - 11PM, I screamed and I shouted and I sang and I smiled and god knows what I'd do to be able to relive that moment all over again. I took a fair amount of videos too, wish I could upload all of them! :-(
The concert started off with Aspectrum - I think I might have a crush on the cute drummer boy - opening for the band and when Mayday Parade finally appeared everyone went out of control!!! Derek (main vocalist) was smiling so much throughout the show I couldn't help but to grin along with him as well because he was such a sweetheart!!!
When the show was coming to an end, Derek said (so glad I filmed his little speech on my phone) "We were thinking we might do one more song if that's okay with you guys out there. Thank you guys so so much for being here and showing us love. I hope you guys had as much fun out there as I've had up here tonight. And I promise, we're gonna come back and see you guys as soon as we can okay?" <3
Then they started playing the last song for the night, which was I Hate To Be You When People Find Out What This Song Is About!!!!!1111 I can't even contain myself!!!
This post-concert depression is so incredibly torturous. I am going to continue watching all the videos that I had taken that night for the umpteenth time to cure this MP concert hangover of mine. Thank you Upsurge Productions, Mayday Parade, Aspectrum and the crowd for making the night unbelievably awesome. Thank you Vic and RL for coming along with me. :'-) I love you girls.
p.s: The following are not-so-clear pictures because I wanted to focus on listening to and seeing them live!!!
