I went to the Modern Art tour last night at the cresant ballroom. It was amazing. All the bands were so kind. Miniature Tigers, my favorite band all tried on my pirate coat and even invited me on stage to do an interprative dance. I have a horrible history with dancing so i just bobbed around awkwardly. but still, On stage with your favorite band! I will remember the concert for a long time. Geographer really stole the show tho. Their creativity and raw musical talent blew me away. For a split second I swear they turned in to angels.Pretty & Nice was first and They had great energy. They sound much better live then they do on any of their recordings. Not to mention Chain Gang. They rocked it like any 8-’s synth band with a modern twist could. God It was such a fantastic concert!

Before the concert was an exclusive close and personal 3 song set at Stinkweeds record store. That was also very nice.
