as i lie awake and miss you,
pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere.. <3
ahhh! the beautiful lyrics of adam young, lead singer of the perfection that is OWL CITY.
micae + i went to their concert with a few friends (corbin, ty + two others!) three days ago (monday night) and it was absolutely stellarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. ahh! paper route opened (which we missed entirely since we got there so late.. oh well!), then LIGHTS played (incredibleee.. look her up on youtube or something, she's quite fantastic!) and then.. OWL CITYYYYYYYYYYY ahhhhhh!
it was micae's first concert (i know, freshman in college and it was her FIRST? insaane. nonetheless..) and by the end of LIGHTS playing, we were still in the very back of the room (it was general admission, standing room only). i looked at her as LIGHTS left the stage and told her that by the end of owl city playing.. we'd be at the VERY front, if it was the last thing i did. and lo and behold..
we ended up in the VERY front.. up against the RAILING (what my other hand is holding onto) which was the ONLY thing separating us from running up on stage to adam young.. ahhhh! did i mention we were not only FRONT, but CENTER as well? look at thesee:
and my personal favorite..
ahhhhhhhh. i can't get over how AMAZING it was!! we were RIGHT in front of him from the MOMENT he took the stage until the VERY end.. part of it could've been accredited to the fact that i had a bit of a coughing attack out of NOWHERE before they took the stage.. so this big african american lady looked at me and was like "girl do you need some space?! girl i'll get these people to give you some space.. HEY EVERYONE. GIVE THE GIRL SOME SPACE!" ..as she proceeded to spread her arms out and i swear.. it was like the red sea was being parted.
shortly after (now being able to breathe, since micae + i had been getting pushed to-and-fro on our entire way up to the front), not only was micae not feeling claustrophobic anymore, but we were RIGHT THERE UP FRONT. ahhhh. i can't get over how incredible it was. i didn't even have to strain to get any pictures because he was RIGHT THERE! i got videos of almost EVERY song he sang (thanks again to mom+dad for the camera you got me for my birthday.. the battery life is insaaane!) and two hours + gallons of sweat later.. we were on our way back home and just relishing in the fact that he was RIGHT in FRONT of us.. so close.. and we almost touched hands (!) a number of times when he'd try to reach out to the crowd.. this is probably one of the only moments of my life that i legitimately wished i was a few inches (or feet!) taller, so that could've happened!
regardless.. it was an AMAZING concert. nothing else i've ever been to/no other band i've ever seen has ever been able to compare. owl city is amazing because of adam young.. he is just so quirky and cute and has impeccable style. if you don't believe me.. just check out some of the videos i posted on my facebook (: or just look below at my favorite (+ the song that the lyrics in the beginning of this post come from) - vanilla twilight!
