Today I went to see Mitchel Musso (Oliver form Hannah Montana) at the TLA on South St in Philly. I sort of feel embarassed saying I'm going to see him since he's a disney kid but he IS veryyyyyyyyy good looking. Heres some proof:
I had meet and greet for the show because of my friend but of course I had to get lost in philly because of the stupid south street detour and I missed it. I wasnt too upset though. When I got there I only thought He and a group called KSM were playing but when I walked in and looked over at the merch I saw a familiar name on a t-shirt.... Jimmy Robbins........
I was soooooooooooo happy to see that he was playing. I think I was more excited to see him play than the headliner. He went on first, no one knew who he was but I jammed out. This was my first time seeing him live and I must say, he has great stage presence. I was blown away, and I also think I fell in love a little bit. haha but Every girl in the room did. He only played about 4 songs and I really wish he could have sone a full set. I can say confidently that I will deffinately be seeing him again. I'm going to try to get him to play here at my college.
After Jimmy, KSM came on, I wasnt really excited to see them at first because they were a disney group only played on radio disney and I dont know I sort of just brushed them off as being a kiddie group.But I was wayyy off. KSM is an all girl band. A girl drummer, guitarists, bass player and singer. They were pretty good. There was actually talent there. They sort of reminded me of the 80's group The Bangles. They have a cover out now of Cheap Tricks "I want you to want me".
I can see them doing pretty well in the future if people give them a chance. It seems like band with girls in them arent taken very seriously. The only band that has actually made it to the "top" would have to be PARAMORE. But they fought for that spot. It seems like every group that comes out with a female singer is comapred to Paramore and is just brushed off and isnt given a chance. Why can there be a million successful bands of all guys but only one true successful band with a female singer. That makes no sense at all to me.
Finally after KSM it was time for Mitchel. Now I've seen him live once or twice before but this time was different. This crowd was different. There were soooo many little kids... "Teenie Boppers" and the pushing was REDIC. It was actually worse than any Jonas Brothers show I've ever been to when they still played GA events. The Jonas brothers is another story that I probably wont tell for a while if i tell at all. Anyway, So Some freaking bitch kept putting her long hair in my face and was leaning back trying to get me to move and there was no way I was getting out of my spot so I folded my arms and stuck out my elbows so next time she tried pushing me she got elbowed right in the spine. If she got hurt, I'd have no sympathy haha... Just so you know, I'm pretty fierce at concerts if you couldnt tell that already. Through out the show Mitchel kept coming over to my side of the stage and kept sticking his face in my camera... you'd think that'd be cool but when theres a bunch of screaming girls trying to get into his pants around you, It's not all cupcakes and butterflies. I cant tell you how many times I had to hit people to back up a bit. Mitchel did good as always. He does have a good voice but I found myself looking at him for a majority of the time instead of listening to him but I can be excused for that since I've seen him before.
I have battle wounds from this show... I dont normally leave shows with battle wounds and I'm so sore from standing my ground in the crowd but It was worth it overall. I got to talk to Jimmy afterwards, he was sooooo adorable and such a sweetheart. It was a pretty successful day overall.

Okay so last Friday, Forever the Sickest Kids, Hey Monday, Mercy Mercedes, and Stereo Skyline played at Six Flags in NJ.
(*******side note: to picture above.... My favorite is the one with the red hair in FTSK^^^ Caleb Turman. haha and also, Those are all really good bands and I say you go check them out as soon as you finish reading this amazing entry*******)
Anyway,Forever the Sickest Kids is one of my favorite bands and even though it was my first weekend in college, there was no way i was missing that show. I left directly after my last class that day feeling like crap. I had to drive there alone and I started to feel really sick. For a moment I was actually going to decide to not go but, I knew I'd regret it if I did'nt, and now that "the best night" has happened already... I'd REALLY regret it. I mean It would be fmylife.com worthy.
I guess you want to know what happened when I got to six flags, I walked into the park and went directly to the arena where the show was going to take place. My friends were on their way there so I had a little bit of time to kill when I noticed something on the ground. It was a piece of paper. So I went closer to it and saw that it was a sticker. I picked it up and read the following words on it..."Six Flags 9/4/04 Backstage Pass". Oh My GOD!!!!!!!!!!! And I thought to myself.... when does this ever happen to someone?!?!?! It's fate! GOD must love me because One. I'm sick Two. I drove here by myself and Three. This is a show for my favorite band. I must have done something right.
There I am, standing there with a Backstage pass... What should I do with it? I did the obvious answer... I stuck it on my jeans and walked right backstage. I had my poker face on so the security just smiled and waved me in. I could'nt believe that was happening to me. I was freaking out inside. So I calmly walked in and sat at a table with some other people who had the stickers and made small talk. I had to act like I belonged back there, which was'nt very hard since I've gone backstage before. I didnt walk up to any of the performers, I didnt call their names or beg for pictures, I stayed chill. Later on some of the performers whom I had met another time noticed me and walked over to say hey but there was no way I was going to look like some stupid teenie bopper.
(****Side note 2: I hate teenie boppers. Yes we've all been one at some point and yes I admit I was one too a few years back but I still can't stand them. And it's not only them, It's the parents. Theyre the worst, they bring their kids to these concerts and expect that because their kids are short they deserve a spot up front or you can't jump around and dance or have a good time because you bump into their child who doesnt even belong in the crowd because they'll get trampled. If you have to stand there and hold their hand and protect them, then theyre too young to be at an event like this! I can't tell you how many times I've gotten into arguments with parents. Ugh teenie boppers.***********)
Being backstage was pretty cool, not one person asked me why I was back there and it felt nice to not be in the crowd for once and just relax with everyone. I got to stand on the back of the stage during the set and it was just an all around great show. After the show the bands were all sort of just chillin around the backstage area so I used that time to talk to them and to take a pic with one or two of them. It was good because there were no screaming fans around this time so I got to talk to them like normal people. It was so calm and I did not feel sick at all anymore haha. I hung out for about an hour after the show then said my goodbyes and headed out.
I only ended up taking two pictures that night... One with Caleb<3 and one with Cassadee the lead singer of Hey Monday
I left that night with a huge smile on me face. How in the world does something like that happen to me? That was luck, wait no .........it was Fate. I was meant to go to that show,meant to find that sticker and in the end, I was meant to have the Best Night.
