I'm proud to say that I have officially been to a concert. That's right, I'm no longer a concert virgin anymore! I just saw Phoenix live, and they were absolutely phenomenal! These photos do no justice to them. No joke, they are perfect live. The suspense was killing me after waiting for a half hour; the second they turned up, all of us ran to the front to get as close as we could.
The best feeling was when I recognised Entertainment at the start and shamelessly sang along to it. Many hits followed after that, including Lisztomania, Countdown, 1901 and my personal favourite, Trying To Be Cool. (Earlier this week I'd made the instantaneous decision to attend the concert with my long-time friend Benita, whom I've seen thrice this past week; talk about third time's the charm. We were like, 'What the heck, why not?' since we're both huge fans of several indie bands - we share the similar passion for quite a few. You may have seen this post on Instagram, of spontaneity upon picking up the event poster.)
Of course, I didn't regret going at all as I danced the night away, bopping up and down in the atmospheric throng of Phoenix fans, with resplendent lights showering the scene. The entire show was heart-stopping, to say the least. It was pretty crazy at times - Thomas Mars surfed the crowd quite a bit, and at the end the entire first floor was invited onto stage. Now that's unpredictable! It made for one of the most enthralling nights of my life.
Lately I've been positively overwhelmed; my schedule is packed, full to the brim with liveliness. I'm so goddamn happy - the best way to put it, really - from having a blast with people I haven't seen in a long while. It's a nice feeling, when friendships don't change. But at the same time I've also been missing everyone back home in Australia like crazy. I am constantly up at night, restless at the idea of future happenings. Don't get me wrong though, you have no idea how fortunate I feel to be living luxuriously.
Anyway, thanks for sticking around if you've made it this far. I really appreciate those who take the time to read and comment, even though I don't reply on a regular basis. If you'd like to leave the highlight(s) of your week down below, I'd love to know! x
