R5 @ Club Nokia 11/16/13 Experience
Lol hey guys…it’s been a while. School has taken over my life. Anyways time for another R5 Experience! Yay!
(I’m the one in the dress between rocky and ross)
Don’t read this if you’re easily offended.
So somehow CrowdSurge screwed up and sent my awesome friend Taylor (far right in the photos) VIP tickets and she emailed back saying that we didn’t buy them, but they insisted that we did…sooo who’s complaining? We got to Club Nokia at around 4 and we ended up being on the VIP list despite our doubts. (It was obviously fate ;) haha) and we waited in line blah blah and they were filming for something. There was this guy with greasy hair and he was directing the camera man..he basically seemed like the typical, cliche hollywood movie director. We went through the metal detectors cause ya know some 6 year old might stab Riker. We got inside the venue, it was really nice and everything was so organized, it was very convenient (thanks R5 management&my fav german: AndreBOOMAN). We got our swaggy VIP bags which was a lot more sturdy than last tour’s (it also had a zipper pocket!) and inside was a book of HOT pics, a lanyard, and a super cool beanie that was meant for a god’s head, not mine. We were basically the last people of the general admission crowd to get blue wristbands for the pit cause the pit area was small. I feel bad for the rest of GA who didn’t get them though cause their spots seemed pretty shitty. Alexa (Rocky’s girlfriend) was in the seating with Stormie and Nathaniel Boone. We moved up the line and got to R5 where we talked to Mark for like 30 seconds and asked if we had 3 pictures cause there was 3 of us and he said “Usually 2, cause the 3rd is boring”…oh marky mark, so funny but I’m gonna get 3 pics whether he liked it or not. We ran in and had a lil group hug and then told them the pics we had planned: Smiling, Gangsta, and Girls vs. Boys and then we did smiling first, then gangsta (I threw up a west coa$t), and then Girls vs. Boys. We unfortunately said goodbye and then got to the pit area and started out at as 3rd/4th row. Taylor and I took turns going to the bathroom…I got in the stall, took out a seat protector, just kidding this isn’t my experience in Club Nokia’s bathroom. Soundcheck started and they covered Girls by The 1975 and HOLY SHIT WERE ROSS AND RIKER ANGELS OR DISNEY PRINCESSES IN THEIR PAST LIFE? CAUSE THEIR VOICES SOUNDED AMAZING AND THEY HARMONIZED SO WELL TOGETHER. They did the usual questions (Ross was acting weird and being so dramatically quiet that he was loud) and then they performed Say You’ll Stay and trust me, I wanted to stay there forever. Oh, and Stormie was being so cute and laughing so loud at the top where the seating was. I fucking hate waiting at concerts and being rubbed up against old ladies who are trying to protect their youngens like there’s fucking seats for your sorry ass…go sit there if you really wanna protect your daughter, who happens to be pushing me back with her butt. Bran&Sav came on…that was fun. Savannah was actually wearing a substantial amount of clothing and I liked her outfit. Brandon was too (hip)ster to handle. My baby, Ryland, finally came on and it was so much fucking fun apart from the mom who I was tlaking about earlier who was trying to act like she was a teenager again, I’m sorry ma'am those days are loooong gone for you. Ryland looked so happy, it was adorable. The anticipation of hearing We Are Family and seeing those beautiful guys and gals come on stage was about 20 minutes…THEN THEY FINALLY CAME ON AND OPENED WITH FORGET ABOUT YOU. So amazing. They also incorporated the song Valerie with What Do I Have to Do,,,it was so beautiful. Ok so all you motha fuckas thinkin Ross was crying during I Can’t Be With You…there’s this thing called SWEAT AND BEING A GOOD PERFORMER. I admit that he did look really sad but what would it look like if Ross was smiling and goofing off during I Can’t Be With You..it would look weird since it’s a slow and somewhat mellower/sad song. Believe what you wanna believe. I love how they kept Loud as their encore…it works so well. During a break between songs Rydel mentioned how she recognized familiar faces from the LA HOB show and she pointed out me and my friend. After the show we were gonna get merch but dayum that line was long and wrapped around the building which made me sad cause Stormie, Ry, and Garron were working it but my feet fucking hurt and I was thirsty. It twas a fun night, and I wish I could re-live it and meet Olivia Holt and her boyfriend Luke Benward who were in the seating. I LOVE YOU ALL AND I’M SORRY IF MY HUMOR OR DICTION WAS TOO MUCH TO HANDLE.
