silverchair ?!?

Let me just warn you first off that this blog has nothing to do with photography .. I am just way too excited to not post about this. :)

I got a phone call this morning from a friend telling me my absolute favorite band in the world was coming to Indianapolis. I'm not going to lie, I thought he was just messing with me. Ok look .. long story short, I've been a huge fan of Silverchair since I was in junior high. I am now 24 years old. In all of those years, they've never once set foot in Indiana for a show. So getting a phone call telling me they were coming here was totally unimaginable! A year or so after I graduated from high school, for fear that I would never be able to see them perform a concert, I flew to Hollywood and saw them two nights in a row (and to throw me into even more shock, I MET THEM!). I never once thought I'd get to see them live again.

Apparently I was wrong because sitting right next to me, on my horrible mess of a computer desk, are two tickets to see the most amazing band in the world on December 11th of this year at the Music Mill.

I know it seems completely insane that I would be going this crazy over a band but I can't explain it! I'm pretty sure there are only about 3 people who know me that get it. This band has been my favorite for right around 12 years! .. and now they're going to be in my city! Plus the bonus is, there is no airfare involved here people! I only had to spend $22 on a ticket .. and possibly will have to spend a few more dollars for some snacks and long underwear for when I'm waiting outside that day to get into the show. :)

I am literally the happiest person on the planet right now!! :D

My brother is obsessed with Silverchair too! Probably just as long as you have. He went to their concert a few months ago and got to meet the band(something about their bus pulling up to the gas station my brother and his friends were at after the concert). He was stoked!
