#bandlife: Emblem3 Concert

As I have been mentioning here and there over the last few weeks, I had tickets to Emblem3's concert on Saturday, and it was a lot of fun.

We arrived about an hour before it started, and the doors were already opened, we got our tickets scanned and we were then allowed in, the merch table was on the other side of the doors, but the line was pretty big so we went in to find our seats and then we went back out a little bit after to buy the merchandise we wanted.

Once inside, we waited for the first opening act to come out, and soon he did. He did a good job, Jackson Guthy...cool dude.

Then we waited a little bit more after his performance, and then MKTO came out, they also did a nice job.

We then waited for a near HOUR, which was kind of boring..I'm not going to lie, I was dozing off a little, I hadn't gotten all that much sleep and it was also really warm in the theater, the music wasn't even playing loud, so it was like a lull that was putting me to sleep..the music would stop and everyone would start screaming, but the lights would not dim...the next song started playing and we would just keep waiting.

I think I would have liked to be wired up with the music, with dance alongs with crazy stuff, I mean, it's Emblem3 and they are siiiiick guys.

FINALLY, the song stopped, and the lights dimmed, and the screaming got louder than before, and after a few moments, out rolled Drew on his skateboard, followed by Wes on his own skateboard, and Keaton came last but not least, walking.

The guys were energized and they pumped up the crowd, there was hand waving and bouncing and jumping and singing along, lights were flashing in every direction and the staging was SO pretty. It was like a garage setting with their mini fridge and their skate ramp, their surfboards, and lava lamps, the brown couch. Then the background was a star setting, and there were lights hanging from the top of the stage, UGH BEAUTIFUL.

The audience would get lit up so the guys could see us, and I really liked that because it makes the audience excited with the possibility that the guys can see us, and they wave and smile and throw out peace signs and all sorts of signs....amazing.

It was a seriously amazing experience..

I'm so happy that I was able to be there for their first tour, I've known them since their XFactor audition back in 2012, and it's really exciting to see an artist grow, and improve and just be all around nice people who love what they're doing and love the people who support them with their entire heart.

Thanks for an amazing experience Emblem3:)

Here are some pictures I took!
