THIS WAS THE BEST WALK THE MOON CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO OH MY GOD
fyi this post is super long and annoying so bless u if u read it all (or part of it or any) i’m makint it a read more so i dont kill everyone
Ok so first off we found out on friday night that we were gonna go. My friend’s mom was talking to ben from bad veins and he told her he could get her some spots on the guestlist bc it was already sold out and stuff. we got 2 the venue less than an hour before doors opened and there were like lessthan 30 people there which was a shOck (and no1 was even wearing face paint. not 1 single person) anyways doors opened and we kind of avoided the lineand went and talked to the guy with the list of people and he saw we were all on it and he stopped the line and let us in. Ben was like right in the doors by the merch so we like thanked him a thousand times for getting us tickets and stuff and then we went 2 get spots and we were RIGHT UP AGAINST STAGE and the stage was super low too. So when ben came out we all screamed and stuff and no one else knew who they were!!! During one song ben messed up the words and he motioned to our group and was like “these girls know the lyrics” and we were the only ones singing along. the old drummer for bv was named sebi and a couple weeks ago he quit cold turkey on ben and so he had to scramble to find a new drummer in time to play the cleveland shows and he told us that he auditioned the new guy (his name is jake) on tuesday and jake learned the entire set in like four days and he was so incredible and looked so happy when he was playing ahhh it was a change for the better!! After their set ben came back out and chatted w/ us for awhile until they had to clear the stage to set up for wtm.
Blah blah the wait was boring but when blake (one of their managers) came to tape the setlists down i thought it said i want! i want! Which was the song i had been asking them to playand they said they would next time im at a show (theres a lil convo on tweeter between me and walkthemoonband from earlier yestrday when they said they needed more notice) but it didnt actually say i want! i want! (it said anna aka anna sun) Which was disappointing but i kinda was thinking they’d play it as the encore.. Blah blah they came out and did some songz and kevin and nick looked at me a few times and i think maybe recognized us from previous shows and eli kept making eye contact with me and at one point he came over by us and he looked at me and said spooky!!!!!!!!! and so i knew that he recognized/remembered me and anyways they finished w/a anna sun and then they came back for and encore and they started playing drunk in the woods and eli looked at me and he was like “im sorry grace im sorry” bc it wasnt i want! i want! And i mean obvi it wasnt a big deal because i knew he tried and stuff! But for their final encore song they started playing i can lift a car and eli looked at me again and hew as like “IM SO SORRRY” and i was like ITS OK and then my friend lea was like omfg we need to jump up on stage and it took her like a minute to gain the courage to do it but then i jumped up right behind her and the rest of our gang did and when eli saw us his face lit up and he cameover and like motioned for us to sing in the microphone and then nick kept smiling at us and then we like got down but this annoying person that i dont know followed us onto stage and he was being totally annoying and like hiding in the curtains and stuff and waited there til the end of the show which was weirD. anyways the show ended and we chatted w/ ben by the merch table for a good while but all of his ~*~*~new fans~*~*~ wanted pictures so we were about to leave and then eli came out by their side of the merch table and so we like ran up to him and he was so happy 2 see ~*~*~me~**~*And then he like was like grace im sorry you know what im talking about and i was like omg its okay and he was like “it was all nicks fault he wanted to play anywayican” and like w/e it wasnt even a big deal but it was so so nice/thoughful that he even remembered and stuff. And then i asked him abt geting a personal tweeter and he was like “the only reason i havent is bc i cant think of a name” and we said spookyeli and he pinky promised me he’d make it that!!!!! so we talked to ben and eli for like another half an hour until we got kicked out bc they were closing up…. sorry for this rant bless u if ur still reading.
