Asbury Park, NJ
Last night was the best night of my whole entire life!!! When I got to Asbury Park, I got in line
with Jamie. I looked around for Andrea and Carrie,
but I couldnt find them. We got inside, and the sercurity made us sit down.
I didn't because there was no room! Andrea was in front of me along with some
of her friends. I met Carrie. I only talked to her for like five minutes
though. Fastball came on. They played for like 45 minutes. They sounded
great! Really cool. The techs took an eternity to set up for GGD. By the way,
I was one person behind the barigade. I was that close!! I could touch the
barigade!!! David came out and played somewhat of Goth type music.
Mike came out. Then the rest of them came on they came out with Dizzy of course. I
threw my note up on stage. During the part of Dizzy where its an instumental
Robby put on my necklace!!! Then I saw he had on my other one from the last
concert! They got my other note!!!!! After Dizzy Kim, Jamie, and I held up a
flourecent sign. Johnny leaned over the stage to grab it. He looked at it and
said, "Does it have a phone number on it?" He gave it back and we put our
number on it and threw it on stage. I lost my bra too. It was right by his
foot. We were exactly in front of him. It was sooo cool!
Next was Long Way Down. Then Lazyeye, and Slide. Then was Fallin' Down. Johnny looked at me and
said "Someone knows the lyrics." Then Full Forver, January Friend, and Black
Balloon. During BB me, Kim, and Jamie blew bubbles. Johnny ate 2 of mine, and
2 of Jamies. Johnny said, "God this tastes like shit." Next was Bullet Proof.
During Another Second Time Around Johnny fell. I dunno if it was on purpose
or not. He got up and started rockin' though. Next was Flat Top, Just the Way
You Are, Burnin' Up, Iris, Hate This Place, and finally 2 Days in February.
When Johnny was intorducing the band he said, "This guy was in an elevator
last ngiht and ate a girls cake. He is David Shults" When he introduced Mike
he said, "This guy has been putting up with my put downs for 5 years. He is
the best girl drummer I know. (Laughs) Well, the best drummer on this stage
anyway. He is Mike Malinin."
During Name Johnny forgot the words to the song.
He said, "Shit, I forgot the fuckin words." When the concert was over John
threw his guitar against the backdrop, and a microphone with its stand. He
also threw around Mike's drums. Robby was hanging and swinging on the
backdrop. It was cute and funny. After the concert Kim, Jamie, and I waited
outside the tour bus. Accross the street was 2 Fastball dudes outside their
tour bus. I met both of them. I got them to sign my pants and got a pic with
them!!! Later I saw Nathan December and got him to sign my pants too. I asked
if I could get a pic with him and he said, "Sure, but I always turn out
looking like I'm dead." He was really nice. I saw him later and told him I
had his guitar pick. He said, "What number does it have on the back." I said
12. He said cool.
Then this tour manager dude came over and said (no lie!),
"Sir, your goats milk bath is ready." He was serious too! No wonder he looks
so dead all the time! LoL! We waited outside still. (Oh yeah. Johnny was
wearin his tan adidas shorts, and a gray tank that had a science sign on it.
I forget what it means. He also wore this hat that was like any other type
of hat. It looked mad cute though! I forget what they are called. Robby wore
his black kinda see through shirt, and black pants. Nathan was wear a black
jersey type shirt with the number 12 on it. I guess its his lucky number.
Mike was wearing a white shirt and jeans I believe. And Dave was in all black
I think) When Jamie and I walk over we saw Johnny now in a cowboy hat, and
Dave. Then secrurity told us to go away before we got the chance to go get a
pic with him. Andrea told me this morning that she met Mike and he was
wearing my necklace. She said, "I know the girl who made that." Mike said,
"Really? I love it! I'm going to wear it all the time!" I was soo happy! And
thats my concert review.
A very Goo happy person,
