MCR and Neon Tree Me!

Last night I went to a -yeah, you guessed it - a concert! I rocked it to My Chemical Romance and Neon Trees. It was the second time I've seen both of them in concert. My friend, Sue, and I arrived to the venue a little early and snagged a close spot to the stage. The crowd was 95% teens and also parents with their preteens. And then there was us (though my 6th grade son was mad I didn't take him! But I'm taking him to another concert in a few weeks).

Both Neon Trees and My Chemical Romance were amazing. Neon Trees played from their debut album, MCR mixed both old and new songs. My legs are killing me from dancing!


This is Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees. You've probably heard their song, "Animal."

Photobucket Gerard's vocals were on, and I loved watching Frank Iero shred on the guitar right in front of us!Here's My Chemical Romance lead singer, Gerard Way. Many teens came to the concert with red hair like Gerard. He's a cutie, don'tcha think?! Photobucket

Here's a short clip of Planetary Go! montage. It's a great dance song. Love these lyrics!

If my velocity starts to make you sweat, then just don't let go...I can't slow down; I won't be waiting for you. I can't stop now, because I'm dancin'!...Blast it to the back row!

Tonight I rock it with Carolina Valdez Miller! We're going to the 30 Seconds to Mars concert. Some guy named Jared Leto is lead singer. I heard he's kind of cute, too...and there's a theme night for this one: Blood Ball! There are going to be some crazy pics on the blog tomorrow!

Also, My Chemical Romance has created a web page at singitforjapan.com with this song below and ways to donate and help Japan. You can also buy this song on Itunes -proceeds go to relief for Japan. What nice, talented guys, huh?

You and Carol irl! I'm so jealous! Of both of you. Have fun. I can't wait to read all about it!

Candyland said...

Oh man. The hubs loves him some Leto. Also, not a fan of Gerard's hair.

Bish Denham said...

I swear sometimes you sound(read) just like a teen-ager instead of a mom!

You go girl.

Kelly said...

Tina - Yes, I'm so excited to meet Carol in person!
Candace- The red hair is rockerish, and it looks dirty which is probably also rockerish. :)
Bish - It's from hanging with the teens at concerts. (this one just seemed like ALL teenagers! most concerts I go to have a mix of ages)

Man! You're killin' me with all of these cool shows that you're seeing! My oldest dragged me to the My Chem concert for The Black Parade Tour in Fresno, California which is near our home. Now I won't shut up about them. He also hooked me on 30 Seconds to Mars. I'd love to see them, but don't know if we'll get the chance. Can't wait to hear about it.
I agree with Storyqueen: You're the Coolest!! ;)

I'm jealous of all your cool concerts. I'm especially sensitive because Coachella is this weekend and I'm not going. But I guess I still want you to have fun at your concert with Carolina.

Marisa Hopkins said...

Oh man, how fun, Kelly!!!

Anita said...

Where are the pics with Carolina? I was all ready with my tea and my free time?! :)

I love love LOVE MCR (and I like Gerard's hair--and Jared's--no matter what color or state of unrest.).

Hugs,
Lola
