This happened to be the case for me with SafetySuit. September just wasn't the perfect time for me. I believe all things happen for a reason. I promise this really is about SafetySuit...I'm not going to start preaching to you or anything.
For some reason even though I hardly ever do this anymore, I decided to login to Myspace. The first thing I saw when I did was a bulletin entitled "Little Rock" it was from SafetySuit, saying that they would be at Juanita's on November 11th. I called my sister and asked her to go with me. She said no because she hates Juanita's. I was not about to miss them again, I refused.
"Just go buy the tickets, I'll take you." She was totally stoked about this, I could tell. (Not really.) I think she thought they were going to be hardcore rockers like Disturbed or something. I promised her they weren't but she didn't seem to believe me.
I had been to Juanita's a few times before and hated it, the people were rude and it was too crowded. It was the complete opposite with this show. All the tables had already been taken, but we found two girls that were nice enough to share their's with us. All of us became friends quickly, we talked about our favorite members and we all liked someone different. There were a lot of people there, but it wasn't like it is when I normally go to Juanita's, people were spread out and you actually had room to move.
The opening band came on, they were called Townsend. The lead singer was a girl, she actually had a pretty good voice. You could tell that they haven't played very many shows before, she wasn't very good at getting the crowd excited. We were all just ready for SafetySuit. No one even came down infront of the stage when Townsend was on. I actually remember the girl practically begging for someone to go down there. No one moved. It was very awkward throughout their entire set.
