I cannot express how excited I was when Monkey told me that Blue October was coming to Maine. I about lost my shit with happiness. It can be hard for me to travel (for several reasons), so them coming to Maine was an amazing opportunity for me to see them live. They are my favorite band. Their music is just amazing. Their music is about life. It’s full of emotion; in their lyrics, the voice and the music it self.
We were able to get tickets for the meet and greet which was fucking awesome! They performed one song during that.
And we got to have our picture taken with the band!
Danny Malone was the opening band and they were pretty good. Not Blue October but good. The guy in the first picture (below) was amazing. He came out in his stockings. He was playing guitar, singing and running electronics with his feet. It was crazy to watch.
The concert was fantastic. I squealed like the fan girl that I am, sang badly and had a great time. I got to be down on the floor right in the front. I was worried about being there, but Monkey kept people from getting into my space, so I did alright. I didn’t get wigged out and I didn’t have any anxiety about the crowd. I was so worried about this and I was so happy about how well it went. Monkey was so supportive and made a huge difference in my ability to cope with all the people. Thank you Monkey for helping me have this incredible experience! I love you!
None of these photos are mine because my camera isn’t really cool enough. These were taken by the radio station (Coast 93.1)that was there and they posted them on their site.
