I guess there are reasons to go to things and get outside and stuff…

Finally, we have an extra shitty shot of Against Me! In the back of my imagination, I wanted Laura and Laura to tour together, but figured that would be a silly thing to hope for. How delightful, don’t you think? Maybe they’ll collaborate on something, you don’t know.
This is the 8th time I’ve seen them, but the first time I’ve seen Laura Jane Grace as she is now and not Tom Gabel. (Also the first time I’ve seen them without Andrew Seward, sad face, but Atom and Inge do fine). My girlfriend says she has a mild crush on her. I think I do too.
We were towards the front of the stage, right beside a girl whose nose started bleeding after a surfer must have tagged her in the face. It bled and bled and bled. Laura gave her towel right before they started a song, not sure which one, Pints of Guiness Make You Strong maybe? Perhaps if she heeded the warning she wouldn’t be such a bleeder…

Shitty cell phone shot of Laura Stevenson. This marks the 10th time I’ve seen her which is the most I’ve seen anyone. There’s just something about her, isn’t there?
However, it wouldn’t be a Laura show without me somehow embarrassing myself. The first time being when I took those creepy photos with her in 09. The 4th time I saw her, she was packing her stuff up while some of my friends were talking to her and she, seeing that I had a copy of Sit Resist in my hands, said from the stage “I hope you like It!” and I said “…awghs too”. I ran. This time I tried to wave at her as we passed by; I think she saw me, look a little disgusted, and kept walking. My girlfriend promptly hit me.
I’m sure none of this is even a blip on her radar and there’s also no way she recognizes me as the same guy that saw her all those times in Charlotte. 
Still.

Shitty cell phone shot of Cheap Girls. This is the 2nd time I’ve seen them, the first one was when they opened for Laura Stevenson and the Cans in Rock Hill. I believe then that the guitarist was drinking cough syrup like it were a cold one. This time I think it was just water. Oh well.
