I saw The Front Bottoms for the 5th time at Shea Stadium on saturday. It was honestly one of the best shows I’ve ever been to, every time I see them it gets better. Being so close to them while they played made it such an intimate and personal show, it was an amazing thing to be a part of. All the sweat and the mess of everyone as we shouted the lyrics along with them and sang our hearts out. There were quite a few moments where I thought I was going to get crushed because the crowd was super insane but I loved every minute if it. Rocking out and going crazy with everyone and just having a good time. By the end my legs were so beat up and badly bruised but it was worth every part of it. Shout out to the girl who saved my life a couple times, much love. The set was great, they played a lot of songs. Including squeeze! We even got to hear something new while they were rehearsing. Tiny Moving Parts was phenomenal as well. They’re all fantastic musicians and really nice guys. I got some of their merch and they all even signed a vinyl for me. Dylan is the sweetest person ever and we got to talk to him for a bit. He said he loves touring and he wants to do it forever and that’s what it’s all about, you can tell how passionate he is about what he does. I got more tfb merch as always, they have a bunch of awesome new stuff. Also my sister got Brian to sing happy birthday to me and he signaled for me to tell him my name I said it was Mia and he goes “Oh Mia, how are you?!” He remembered who I was and that’s one of the greatest feelings ever. I had given him a bandana in Rochester and he said he usually trades them but he still has it in his bag. That means so much to me. They don’t have to stick around after shows but they do and that’s one of the things I love about them. I’m so glad to have met them. Today’s my 19th birthday and I know that The Front Bottoms will be there to help get me through another year. I’ve never posted pictures after a show cause I never get around to it but this one was super special. So here ya go, enjoy! Rock & Roll.
Also thanks to Katie for selling me tickets when the show was sold out. None of this would have been possible without her.
