Be Safe, Play Hard

We had a blast last night if you disregard the masses of middle-aged teens who insist on wearing thongs and handbags in a mosh pit or thinking it is a really good idea to surge the pit. Although in the end we were laughing about it because they were just a sight to see.

, well every song sounded like the previous one, I had really expected more after listening to stuff on their website.

were pretty cool, loved rocking out to My Paper Heart, One More Sad Song etc. Though the lead singer was a bit weird he kept on going on about how hot all the chicks were in the audience. And in the words of Sam, “Most of them are under 16 and in Australia that is called paedophilia”. Yep I am telling you, we saw kids who couldn’t have been more than nine there.

And well what could we expect from ? After a great show in March? Well they only got better, since this was their first tour with them as headliners it was much better, they had control, they did what they liked, they rocked:) A couple of things really stood out, when Chuck the drummer was let to run wild in the crowd and then had the stage to himself for a while. The two songs they covered – Happy Together by The Turtles and I Believe in a Thing Called Love by The Darkness – rocked the house, have to say the Darkness cover was really good. Now I am sure that all bands say how much they love a particular city each time they do a show there, well this time they took it one step further and did a freestyle rap ode to Brisbane, taking off H to the IZZO by Jay-Z but it was B to the the Brissay. Sam and I stood there cracking our sides in laughter.

Mobile phones are *so* the lighter of the 21st century πŸ™‚ Ok, so I stole the idea from The OC, kudos to anyone who can tell me which episode but it was so fun seeing the sea of mobile phone lights for the slow songs.

I took some videos of the concert as well as the photos that are here but need to figure out how to edit and compress the files down.

  1. Well, I don’t like to say no to a challenge, but I can’t for the life of me place that scene where they’re using the cell phones for lighters. Dang. If I place it I’ll let ya know!! πŸ™‚ And sounds like you had tons of fun! I don’t know the first band but AAR and Simple Plan would be great in concert I’m sure! I’m jealous. πŸ™‚

  2. Man…I’m so old I can barely remember my mosh pit etiquette LOL

    Rock on Helen (see how old and uncool I am!!!!!!!)
