So yesterday I went to Spring Fever Tour in Lowell, MA. Before the concert while we were in line, everyone started screaming and rushing out of the line and clumping on a spot on another sidewalk nearby. We had a friend hold our spot in line and we find out that Adam Elmakias is there. I was able to get the chance to meet him. He held out his arms for me to hug him, and I did. He’s really tall in real life - I thought he was shorter. The concert was a blast. I got to meet my Tumblr friend from Rhode Island, and we had so much fun together.
You Me at Six opened up the show and although I wish Mayday Parade went first, YMAS’s set was phenomenal. I was screaming all of the lyrics at the top of my lungs (now I can’t talk) and I was getting a lot of weird looks, but I was crying their whole entire set, especially during “Stay with Me” because that song has impacted me a lot. Josh was being very sassy during their set which just made the mood of the place so much happier. During “Underdog” Josh rarely sang the lyrics and just had the audience sing, and I swear I was the loudest one there. I’m proud to say that after last night, I can’t talk anymore.
Mayday Parade’s set was good, but during their set I went and bought merch and walked around with my friend. Somebody That I Used to Know was really good, although it’s still hard to listen to because of my inside jokes with Adriel. During Vic’s solo he just randomly appeared on stage then dissapeared for the rest of their set.
Pierce the Veil’s set was awesome (obviously!). Their background looked really cool - it was glow in the dark and they had giant gears spinning. For their set I was screaming my heart out. At one point Jaime started playing an electric banjo and the entire pit and everyone there started Salsa dancing. Both Pierce the Veil and All Time Low were wearing Boston Strong shirts which made me gain an all new respect for them, knowing that they care just meant everything because I was affected by the bombings. During Bulls in the Bronx me and my Tumblr friend were singing our hearts out for Liv (rest in peace <3).
All Time Low came next, and their lineup was rumoured to be an hour long, and I was really excited for this. Some random guy in a suit comes on stage and a microphone lowers from the ceiling. Acting like a wrestling announcer, he announces each member of All Time Low. Zack’s was about his abs, Rian’s was how half of us don’t know he’s in the band and the other half think he’s a potato, Jack’s was about Home Alone and how scrawny he is, and Alex’s is about how we are all obsessed with him. Their set was about an hour, and during that hour, I swear it was one of the best hours of my life. I got to laugh, dance, and sing my heart out with the band that taught me “Hey, it’s alright to be different. Just be yourself and don’t give a fuck what anyone else thinks.”
We were going to go straight home right after the concert at 11, but my friend knew someone backstage so we were able to wait by the buses for the best night ever. So we were by the buses and out walk Jaime and Mike from Pierce the Veil. Since I’m really shy I was kinda hiding behind everyone while they were all greeting Jaime and Mike. Jaime confronted me. He asked me if I liked the show and hugged me for about a minute straight. Then I said hi to Mike and told him how awesome he is and that they did a great job and I thanked them both for honoring the people affected by the Boston bombings. My friend told Jaime that I wanted to tell him something so he took me by the hand and pulled me off to the side away from Mike and the other fans. He wrapped me in his arms and said “Tell me everything” so I told him how it was my 1 month of being clean from self-harm and that it was really hard because no one was really there to help me. He told me "Wow, I’m so proud of you. Just stay strong and everything will be alright. I know it’s really tough, but things will get better, I promise. They may not seem good right now, it may not seem to ever get better, but it will. Stay strong for me, okay? I love you." We hugged for 5 minutes straight and I just cried into his shoulder. This was the first time anyone has ever let me cry into their shoulder. The first person to give me their shoulder to cry on is the favorite member of one of my favorite bands. I got to take my picture with Jaime after the emotional encounter. He had to bend down because I’m so short and he’s like 5’11” or something crazy like that. I said “Yeah, I know I’m really short,” and he replied with, “No it’s cute.” Jaime is my favorite member of Pierce the Veil, and getting to spend this short amount of time with him meant so much to me. Pierce the Veil has had such a huge influence on my life, and getting to meet Jaime and Mike, knowing that I mean something to them, knowing that I mean something to someone, knowing that me, as well as millions of other people influence their music just meant the entire world.
