Summer Fest Tour: We The Kings, Breathe Carolina, T. Mills, The Ready Set and Keep It Cute

It might seem insane that I keep feeding my concert addiction, but it’s honestly the one thing that keeps my life entertaining. Nothing compares to live music, although it’s pretty much emptied my bank account. It’s like a thrill that begins one week in advance and lasts throughout the night. The downside is that post concert depression sorta hits right away the next morning. Even now, just the realization that I won’t be seeing another band for another good month kinda bums me out. But, I guess in the moment of the concert, there was nowhere else I’d rather be, so I guess I’m happy. It’s been about 4 days since the concert, and I’m still not off of all the excitement that was booming last Tuesday. It all began with the not so exciting Tuesday morning at 8 AM. I got ready while listening to the bands’ music to get pumped up. Then headed to the Opera House downtown with my friend Helen, to line up to enter at 6 PM. We arrived approximately at 11 AM and waited outside for 7 and a half hours. I still don’t know how I survived those hours, but I’m glad I did. We finally got to enter the venue, and well the party began:

IMG_8878This is Keep It Cute, and they are rather cute if I have to say so myself. The puns that I could come up for this band are horribly cheesy, so I’ll just say that they’re worth listening to. They’re great at what they do, and they are the most genuine guys I’ve ever met. They are so down to earth, and it’s great to see that kind of people in the music industry. I can’t wait to hear when they get signed cause I know they will. Also let me mention the fact that basically half of the band consists of only 18 year old boys (isn’t that insane?). This only makes me feel like I’m actually doing NOTHING with my life as a teenager.

Although I haven’t been listening to their for very long I will be definitely listening to them in the future.  Their song, “Give Me Your Hand” was the first I’ve ever listened to, and I automatically fell in love with the song. It’s catchy and upbeat which I love, and plus the music video hooked me. I love the concept of mixing sign language into the video, and I actually learned it. Yup, I have that much time on my hands. It actually sparked part of the reason why I’m learning sign language right now. It’s just something fun, and it was really exciting to hear it live in concert. It basically took every inch of my body not to sign to the lyrics, but it was nice to be singing and dancing along.

Everyone was going crazy for every damn song, and they knew how to have fun. I mean he crowd surfed, if that doesn’t scream fun I don’t know what does. Everything from the black lights to their songs, everyone was going nuts. I  just love that environment, and it was a definite high of the night. Plus it really pumped me up for We The Kings.

IMG_8932I couldn’t have asked for a better set list and a better band. They were amazing, and I hope to see them again in the near future. It was a night to remember forever.

IMG_8909Straight after the concert, my friend and I decided to go to the We The Kings merch table to check out what they had. In the middle of lining up, I saw Kevin from Keep It Cute and asked him for a picture. I’m not even going to lie that I didn’t know his name until after the concert, but hey at least I know it now. We snapped a photo, and he was really sweet.

IMG_8910After not purchasing anything at the We The Kings merchandise table (they didn’t have anything left), Helen and I decided to leave. We headed out into the direction we were suppose to, but stopped midway because I was being indecisive if I should take a picture with the lead singer of Keep It Cute who was only standing a couple meters away. Unfortunately he went back inside so we just started walking, until we saw Kevin and Aldo. We spoke with them for a little while talking about how it’s like to travel, and even their post concert ritual. They were unbelievably down to earth and genuine guys. Both of them were so so very nice, and I really hope to see them again sometime.

After some Keep It Cute fans wanted signatures from Kevin and Aldo, Helen and I stayed back so we could at least say bye. Meanwhile, I finally got the chance to take a picture with Ryan and Matt who were very sweet as well. Later we even got the opportunity to take an Instagram video with Ryan and Aldo. But life hates me, and my phone deleted the video.

Yup this was me and I screwed up big time.
