Life~: A Review of Make Out Monday's First Concert + Meeting Jeremy Shada10:59 AM
Ohhhhhhh myyyyyyyy goshhhhhhh, guys! I just had the time of my life last night!
|I loooooooove Finn <3|
|Logan, John, Zack, Jeremy, & Seth are the members of Make Out Monday!|
|They're all so multitalented and handsome lol|
|These are literally the sweetest & funniest guys you'll ever meet. They have such an amazing stage presence.|
My sister, my mom, and I arrived to the concert venue about 3 hours early before the doors to the concert would open. We were literally the first people there lol
A little while after we arrived, I saw this very handsome boy wearing sun glasses walk past me as I thought "Wow, that guy looks like Jeremy Shada." All of a sudden, my sister was like "I think that's Jeremy Shada!" He had already walked past us at that point, and we called out to him.
To my surprise, Jeremy actually came back up to us and asked us how we were, gave us high fives, took a picture with us, & asked us if we were staying for the show. After that quick exchange, he said he'd see us later on & headed back into the concert venue.
My sister & I were SO ecstatic! We could NOT believe we actually met Jeremy Shada!
After spending a good hour/hour and a half on fangirling over that encounter, Jeremy Shada's Brother named Zack (who is also in Make Out Monday) and a group of girls approached my sister and I. One of the girls said "I have some shirts for you guys!" And with that said, she gave me, my mom, and my sister free Make Out Monday band tees!!!
|This is the shirt that was given to me by the group of girls with Zack. I put it on right after they gave it to me <3|
Time goes on, and eventually more people turn up in line for Make Out Monday. My sister, my mom, and I were literally the only people in line for like 2 hours. By 6:30 pm, the doors to the concert venue had opened and I was the first one inside after frantically running down a huge flight of stairs (in 5 inch wedges thankyouverymuch) that led down to the little concert venue.
The concert venue was very small and chill, already filled with some of Jeremy's close friends and family members who stood around and chatted amongst themselves. There was a little bar, a few high tables with bar stools & a handful of love seats & cushioned chairs. There was also a mini stage not more than a foot off the ground, where the members of Make Out Monday would perform.
Upon walking into the venue, I was immediately greeted by Zack (Jeremy's older brother who was with the group of girls who had given me a band tee a few hours earlier). I couldn't believe that Zack & Jeremy were both so sweet and friendly towards me lol I felt super comfortable and almost like we were casual friends LOL
When my sister and mother finally came in after me, we were approached by this man who looked oddly familiar. He was friendly and greeted us, as we were the first 3 non-friends/family members of the band to arrive. He chatted with us about how tickets for this concert were hard to come by, as they only released a few to the public. We chatted for a while, and I just assumed he was like Make Out Monday's manager or something, because he hadn't introduced himself when he approached us. It turns out that he was Jeremy's and Zack's FATHER! I had met Jeremy's Dad! OMG lol
The concert started around 7:15, and it was great. They performed not-yet-released songs such as Sirens & Tall As Heaven. I think that Sirens will be my favorite song of theirs <3 They also did an amazing cover of Talk Dirty To Me, with a rock/punk flare to it! They closed the concert with their debut song called "Hope Less Romantics". I loved it all and couldn't believe that they were that close.
When we walked up to him, he gave me a hug! He then asked me "Oh, did you buy that shirt?" (After Zack gave me the free Make Out Monday shirt, I had immediately changed into it). I then told him that they were given to us. We took a second picture & we sent him on his way.
|This is the SECOND picture I got to take with Jeremy! He's too sweet~|
I would no doubt give this concert a 10/10! I would give the members of Make Out Monday an 11/10 for being literally the sweetest celebrities I have ever met in my whole entire life.
I strongly recommend that you guys check out their music and support them! They are so sweet and really care about their fans! You can check them out here at makeoutmonday.com!
