color me ginger

I have never felt so fan girl like I did a few nights ago. I was just inches away from touching one of the band members' hand. Ok, I should probably backtrack. So some nights ago, I went to Two Door Cinema Club's concert in Seattle and it was LEH-JIT to say the least! I was just a few feet away from my favorite ginger. *swoon*

For one, the guys who opened for them were really awesome--Work Drugs--they had a really chill, but rich sound. Each member had snazzy sunglasses. and I was a big fan of the one girl in the band. She's so "alluring" as my friend says.

 my camera was wack. and no, i'm not doing a peace sign, i'm just pointing at them, which isn't much less cheesier... :/

Back to Two Door. I did a post on them a while back, and although I listen to a ton of other bands/musicians and I haven't really gotten to showcase them, I guess TDCC will just have two posts about them!

One of my fav moments was when everyone was moshing (great word choice?) and i just let the rhythm--or lack thereof--of the crowd move me, closed my eyes, then looked up at the ceiling with it's texture like a canvas with tons of acrylic paint splattered on it, and the lights just illuminating the room as i could feel the music, the excitement run through my veins. (i realize it sounds like i was high...but i promise i don't do that stuff. i am actually high on life.) and when you take that figurative step back from the craze of the moment, it's just like 'wow, this is it. this is life. this is beautiful.' and i could see little flecks of dust flying in the air, time was slow and there was just this moment in which you knew everyone around you was happy even if they were being stepped on and squished between sweaty moshers--I definitely have a huge bruise on my ankle; it's going to look ugly for prom...)

I loved being able to stand still and feel the bass guide my heartbeat, the movement of the crowd . the rhythm of the bass felt like my heartbeat and everything just felt.. so together. even though my face was smothered in some girls garnier fructis-smelling hair (thank god it smelled like good shampoo and not bad hair or B.O. like summ ppll). every crash sunk in and jumping with everyone in unison, all because we love the music, we love the the sound, we love the moment. no matter where we're coming from and no matter who we are, we were all having a blast together. all for the music. all for the love.

The performance was grand. they weren't awkward at all, their casual, experienced and down to earth feeling made it seem like i was watching some friends perform on stage (yeah, in my dreams). and my friend caught one of their towels they threw! you should've seen us screaming after the show in awe of a...towel. and we were like "SMELL IT! IT SMELLS SO GOOD" *SMELL* "OH MY GOSH!!!" *JUMP 3 FEET IN THE AIR (that's really how it went down).

After the show, I got to meet the drummer--I think he's so underrated and super awesome. I don't know why he's not in album covers and band photos. He adds a lot to their sound. Anywho, he was so approachable, not pretentious at all or anything. He is so gorgeous, too. He signed the back of my new TDCC shirt (which is a size XL, smallest they had left but works for me!). My friend had the guts to smooch him on the cheek. I need to learn to be bold like that.

My camera is also extra broken down; the lil navigating buttons don't work unless I line them up meticulously in place, but MAN all I can think about is how AWESOME the night was. I'll not forget it. I wish I could've shook their hand and met them, but it was exhilarating just to be a few feets away from them and see them live.

an extra fan girl-y photo. i think it's hilarious how cheesy i look in these.

 and every outfit post has to have some photos for the lolz, c'mon. and guess what? have you noticed i'm wearing shoes in these photos? probably not, because i couldn't angle the cam quite well to showcase my shoes, but yes, i'm wearing boots!

 outfit details:
jacket - billabong (pacsun)
cardigan - BDG (urban outfitters)
skirt - store in South Korea
tights - american eagle
bracelet - banana republic
boots - papaya

song of the moment -
Two Door Cinema Club - whatever this song is (I actually don't know the name of it, but I filmed 40 seconds of it and I love it; if you know the name of it, do share!)
