So, this was last week but I am STILL geeking out about it! I saw the Frnk Iero and the Celebration show here in SF!!!! Ugh, it was just so awesome. Modern Chemistry and Homeless Gospel Choir were most definitely rad too! There was so much energy and good vibes going on. It was a surprisingly tame show! Definitely WAY more tame than the Gerard Way show by FAR. Most likely because it wasn't in the best of neighborhoods. STILL, awesome venue, Bottom of the Hill. Made a couple of line friends that, much to my shock, I saw after the show in the merch/ sign line. Which was pretty long and took FOREVER, but what was cool was that they go 'Okay, if you have anything for Frank to sign or give you can be cool and let those people who have to leave go first (bla bla) he has to go (bla bla) 15 minutes!' and we're all 'okay C'MON PEOPLE, let's go!'
The line doesn't budge. People are most likely telling him their life story and taking FOREVER still. My buddies and I are all 'ugh!'. Its past midnight and I have work in the morning. I am also solo at this show and have to call my aunt for a ride all the way in the city. Imagine my thrill...BUT he was so super cool, he stuck around for EVERYONE. I thought that was so rad of him. Just, being in the same room as him..breathing the same goddamn air! It was so surreal and I tried not to freak out and tear like some girls did. My line buddies were very supportive and understanding being in the same proximity as..FRANK! So, in the end, he signed my CD, I shook his hand!, gave him a rough of the comic I made for him (which I will post here) that was inspired by 'Blood Infections', and a picture with him! God, it was SO worth waking up at 7AM.
sidenote on the concert: He played Xmas Sux, This Song is a Curse, Sunsets are for Muggings, and did Boxcar (by Jawbreaker) with HGC
(all the little fan girls who had no clue about Leathermouth had their little jaws on the ground all '..wheeere did this come from o.o)
