Rock Bands Live Tour

Thursday was the sweet-awesome Rock Bands Live Tour at the E-Center. We arrived in time to miss the first band, The Cab but had some time before the next band to watch some of the Rock Band enthusiasts practice in hopes of being able to play on the stage. After checking out the Merch desk we took our seats for Plain White T's.

I will admit that while they are not my favorite band, they put on a really good show. Lots of energy and the music is fun. Plus they were all dressed hard-core emo.

Next WAS my favorite band, Dashboard Confessional. I have loved Dashboard for years and years now and was so excited to finally see them again. And they did not disappoint. Chris Caraba is just as attractive as ever (below) and they even sang the new Pink song So What. And did a mighty fine job of it too!

Headlining was Panic! At The Disco. And I love Panic! I was so excited to see them for the first time, and it was a little disappointing. I do not have their new album yet, but from what they played at the show, I know it is a little more mellow than the first one. And that is cool, I like the mellow. But the band themselves did not really bring their A game. It was fun to sing along with the songs I knew, but they just didn't have what was necessary to keep me interested in the new stuff. Cool light shows and screen effects, though. By far the best part of the whole show was when they covered the always famous Shout! made famous by Joey Dee & The Starlighters. The crowd went nuts! I took a video, but it is not very good quality and I can't get it at work. So you will all just have to use your imaginations.
All in all, it was a good show. I am glad I went and I am even more glad that Nik humored me and sat through the whole thing without complaining! Love You!
