EEYOP! First of all, I did write some MASSIVE 6 page story of what happened on Saturday but I figured none of you would be bothered to read it so this should be the shorter version which means missing bits out but it needs to be done.
Met up with Kaylie in Camden (dodgiest place in London) about 1.30pm, went to get piercings, chickened out, Kaylie was hanging around with people I didn't like so I told her I'd see her at the gig and left at like 2ish and met up with Patrick. Handed out some leaflets with him, bought random food from the shop, met up with JoJo and Calum at 3 and set off (:
When we got to Waterloo, we saw some random hardcore kids (Waterloo is ages from Kingston). We figured they were going to Underoath also so I got pissed off cos I realised tons of people would be there and I'd never get to meet my favourite band.
Me, Patrick, Calum, JoJo and the random hardcore kids messed about on the train and the public got annoyed <3 lol. When we got off the train we had to go piss in Burger King.
After the piss we ran like crazy loons to Banquet Records and there were like 20 people there :| hahah.
Yeah we messed about and actually, it didn't seem like long before we were standing up and this random ginger guy's like "heyyy!" me being the slow person I am was like "oh hi person i don't know".
Fucking hell why am I so slow?! It was sexy drummer from Underoath.
I would say about 40/50 people turned up in the end, we met Underoath, had loads of stuff signed, asked Tim if he knew what Marmite was... the usual.
After a while me and about 20 people (half of them were drunk) ran to the venue and got incredibly lost, and found it and danced like crazed people. We were like the first people there so we just messed about but after a while, people arrived, bands arrived, I got a fat hug from the fat guy in THP, and then Tim from uO came out and filmed us being crazy drunk and/or hyper people for the Underoath DVD, and then we waited some more, messed about more, Tim came out again with the camera and made us do some crazy moshing thing and it was like "LETS GO! [somethingorother] MOSH" *makes crazy pit in the doorway*
YEAH, so we were finally let in, I got a lovely place at the front, and then Kaylie came, she was in a really bad way, I took her to the toilets so she could puke and she seemed okay after that.
Dopamine were on first, theyre pretty good but I got slightly bored... next up... Roses are Red <3 they were amazing <3 then Kaylie passed out.
It was pretty scary cos I didn't know what to do... I kept waking her up, and she would seem okay and then the last time she passed out she wouldn't wake up.
I got this random guy to help me drag her outside, when she was outside she kept shaking and rocking back and forth... erm, then we saw Tim from Underoath, and he had a massive bottle of water, then I ran up to him and asked for help and he seemed well shocked and ran over to help. Kaylie was burbling random crap and me and Tim just held her and made her keep drinking water and asked her questions to keep her awake. She didn't seem any better so Tim took us into the tourbus.
We wrapped her up in loads of blankets and me, Tim, Chris and the bassist from Roses are Red sat there not really knowing what to say.
Well, when Kaylie got slightly better we phoned Lara and got her to come take Kaylie home. So the tourbus was fucking surreal, stuck in a tourbus with your friend who had almost just died and your favourite band? So weird. When Silverstein finished, there was a knock on the tourbus door and Calum and Patrick and Louie came in stinking of sweat haha. Calum had just been on stage with Silverstein, he was well happy. And then Silverstein and some random old people came in and I was like :| WHOOOAH.
And then the bassist of Silverstein went and sat next to Kaylie and watched tha 70s show haha, and then the bassist was talking to him about how he got into Silverstein and the next minute he's touring with them! Haha, it was like a random band DVD... like hanging on the tourbus with Underoath, Silverstein and Roses are Red. So weird.
ANYWAY Kaylies friends came, picked Kaylie up, we staying in the bus for a while then Calum (somehow) got the lead singer from RaR to get us free merch! So we ran off to RaR's tourbus and got some yummy Trustkill stuff. Then Tim came out and was like "ok guys, we're on in a minute, i gotta get changed and pray and stuff" and we were like "okaaay thanks for everything dude :D" and then he overheard me moaning about not being at the front for Underoath and then he was like "We'll get you to the front!"
Anyway we waited in the cold for a bit with RaR and then Tim came out with Chris "THE PLOUGH" cos he's like big and he like ploughed through the crowd and they got us to the front and I was like YAY.
ANYWAY UNDEROATH WERE FUCKING AMAZING LIVE. THE BEST BAND BY FAR. EVEN BETTER THAN DEAD POETIC *GASP*
And I had a song dedicated to me (I'm Not Feeling Very Receptive Today) :D ALL MEEEE <3
And I went in the pit several times, went crazy, jumped on stage, got Tim's pick, went more crazy, jumped on stage again, jumped off.
Then it was over, I went up to Tim gave him a massive sweaty hug and thanked him for being so awesome, then we got sweaty pictures with him and he poured water all over me haha.
Oh turns out Kaylie had been drugged in Camden.
Yes I didn't lie this is the short version haha <3
