So hey!! Been a while since I posted. :D And this time, I'm here to share some highlights from last night. (~‾▿‾)~ As some of you may know, my mom wanted to take me out, so she got us the tickets to a gig of a band I used to listen to as a teen - Poets of the Fall! :D
Although I'm not a huge fan in the sense that I haven't listened to them in a while and don't know many of the lyrics by heart, I still had a blast being there!! :D Mom was slightly less enthusiastic, but a cider and the mood of the guys on the stage, as well as the audience's, swept me to act more widely than I usually do. XD
As we went to the place (Tanssisali Lutakko), it wasn't too crowded, and so mom dragged me as close to the stage as we could. I was near the wall by the stage, and so no one usually stood behind me once the actual show started.
And boy, what a show it indeed was! XD
I'd always taken them for a bit more of a pop band, and even after listening to their music on Spotify I was pleasantly surprised that the songs they played were more of their rock repertoire. And goddamn, the music was good!! <3 And the guys were absolutely fantastic on the stage being all silly towards each other and making faces at people - the whole audience were acting very non-Finnish with cheering and bouncing and moving, and the vocalist's cheerfulness especially was quite catchy. :D
I didn't know all the lyrics by heart, but enough to be able to sing along whenever I could remember them, and yeahhhh just swaying and bouncing with the rest of the audience. Then a really weird thing happened O__o I made, accidentally, eye contact with one of the guitarists (the one with the beanie..). That lasted for a bit too long so it got strange.
What made it even more strange were lyrics to the chorus of Carnival of Rust.
Did I say strange? I meant awkward. The lyrics definitely amplified the awkward.
So my reaction was to close my eyes. Mom laughed her ass off at me afterwards ("That was such a Laura thing to do") as she swears the guitarist kept staring at me. I opened my eyes again at times indeed to see him close by, so I just shut my eyes again and this was repeated several times!?? XD I naturally convinced myself there were other people behind me but according to mom, there was no one because of the nearby wall O__o I told her to shut up. XD
All in all it was a great night, a fantastic experience, and I'm so glad mom got the tickets on a bit of a whim. <33 I really needed going out like this. :D
What's even greater is that, if I'm accepted as one of the congress assistants to an event in June, I get to see these guys again at Sataman yö!! YEAH!!
I'm still happy from the gig. The energy was quite something to experience. :D
I also got mom to play Golf With Your Friends with me earlier XD we took turns on my laptop. Two games and she said she doesn't want to play with me anymore, pretty much saying it's awful. XD Aaaand we made lasagna. <3 And for lunch, I had an amazing chicken foca at one of the local cafes... so - fecking - good!!
Anyways!! Yep. I went to a gig and it was great. :D WOoo!
How's your weekend going? :) Hope you're all well!! <3
