Wed 8 Oct – Panic at the Disco, Dashboard Confessional, Plain White T's, The Cab
The show started right on time with The Cab
. I honestly had heard of them the morning of and downloaded a couple of songs, liked it. The test was how can they do with the crowd and performing live. ONE WORD--GREAT! They were superb for a new band... no muffling of words and such. They had a great crowd presence. They played about 5 or 6 from their new album "Whisper War
Next were the Plain White T's
!! I have seen them about 3 or 4 times and they never disappoint. I serious. They never do. With release of their new album, Big Bad World
, the first couple of songs were the songs from the new album. The first couple were Natural Disaster and a few others from the new gig. They definitely performed Hey there Deliah
and 1, 2, 3, 4
. Afterward, they were signing autographs near the center of the Arena. During the closing song, it was a mad house because there was a mixture of crazed teenage girls, their parents, and the young adults running every where to be the first in line. Of course, knowing where we were going my friend, Manders, and I knew exactly where to go but we were not the first ones in line. After the mania of changing shirts (in line)... and other things like that. We finally met Tom and the crew!!
They were awesome and great personalities... having mini-convos as the line passed by. It was great. They signed my CD that I bought while in line cos it was the right thing to do. Haha. Thanks Manders! Haha.
After the excitement of PWT's... there was Dashboard Confessional. He was touching all the romantic and other built emotion that people seem to hide. Signing along to Screaming Infedilities
and some other familar tunes. He was great. The band was awesome to support his great vocals.
Lastly, there was Panic at the Disco! Yay! I had never seen them live just have their two CDs. They started off with the intro track off the newly released album, Pretty. Odd.
The lead singer was pretty amped and the good looks are something worth noting. Haha. Anyway. The bass guitarist was great with introducing songs and ad libing between sets. They were fantastic and end the evening fabulously! It was so worth the night.
