My biggest summer post for day 60!!! I. love. concerts. All pictures I took except the first; I found that on Twitter. Today at Lollapalooza the skeleton clique turned up BIG TIME for our beloved Tøp. It felt like everyone was my friend (shoutout to @joejoeswatt on Twitter for unabashedly loving the crap out of this band and this whole day), and I received very animated compliments all day. Denver and I got our Josh Dun eye makeup done (lol) and the girl (twitter @paulinaugh) generously treated a lot of people!! A super cool dude came alone with black paint on his neck and hands in the style of Tyler and he let me take his picture because he knew he looked rad. The cutie pie in front of me fell asleep in her #1 Dad hat so I had to capture it- by the way I’ve never seen so many crazy beautiful people in one place. I was seriously so overwhelmed I just tried to take it all in and look at everyone because I saw so many different types of beautiful and bold. After some minor setbacks in our placement in the crowd, Denver and I got pretty great spots considering when Tøp started the entirety of the field was filled with thousands of people. I was completely smushed and sweaty and I was like “you know what? I love this music and I really love these people (the crowd sang literally EVERY word) so fuck it I’m gonna jump and gonna enjoy it”. Breathing heavy in my soaked hot mess-state, people are just getting off each other’s shoulders after The Run and Go and I’m thinking about how I wanna do it next time when this guy gets a girl off his shoulders and looks at me and goes “you look fantastic if you’re curious” and it made my whole being smile. At concerts I have this thing where I need to get to the front at all costs and I end up surrounded by strangers every time, so sometimes I’ll get self-conscious about letting it loose. This guy just assured me that I was actually kicking ass like I wanted to. Jumping like one unit to all the crazy energy in there and all of a sudden they put down this piece of wood on the people in front of me and I’m like- HOLY SHIT. TYLERS GONNA STAND ON THIS RIGHT IN FUCKING FRONT OF ME. He climbs on and I’m screaming and jumping and smushing myself into the people around me and they bring the drum Tyler will hit and apparently it’s covered in water cuz all of sudden he hits it and I get splashed and I’m so fucking happy to be alive.
Thank you to everyone who was a positive part of this day. Be as nice to others as you can be to fellow concert go-ers. I wish you the best and hope you all show up to the next show an even better version of the you you are now. “We are twenty one pilots and so are you” |-/
