New Found Glory

My favorite band of all time was playing tonight in Seattle at the Showbox at the Market.

Needless to say it was one of the most fun times I've ever had with my clothes on.  There were a couple of openers who did a good job of warming everyone up and made it quite the rowdy night. The first opener was Fireworks followed by Hellogoodbye, Saves the Day and then NFG.

The venue was pretty full, way more crowded then the last time.  My friend @madscientist and I got to mosh a bit to each of the openers, include the favorites Bonnie Taylor Shakedown and Here in Your Arms.

When New Found Glory came out, I was the second row of people from the rail and it was absolutely nuts!  They played the entirety of their original self-titled album to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.  Which means we got to rock out to all the old favorites non-stop.  Then they played some of the new hits.

For the encore, they came back and played every other hit (which is a lot!) and ended with My Friends Over You.  I made some new mosh-friends, @jwalking lost his shirt, and the girls almost got in a fight.

This is not a night, I'll soon forget.
