August Break- Days 11-15: Stars On The Moon

Yay the internet finally works!

Ok so Thursday I went to Juanita’s to see Ryan Star and Thriving Ivory with my cousin Brook and my sister (Heather) who only agreed to go because she likes Thriving Ivory. We got to Juanita’s an hour before the doors opened, so we decided to drive around town while we waited.
After we were inside we looked out the window and saw everyone freaking out, running into the street. Turns out a little boy got hit by a car. He was fine, he just hurt his arm.

When all the drama was over Heather, Brook and I took a spot right in front of the stage.

The first band was Free Micah. They are from Little Rock. I personally (probably along with everyone else in the room) thought they weren’t very good. You couldn’t understand any of the words they were singing. They had a cello player.




The lead singer had a Jesus –type beard…look at these poor quality photos. Note: Not all photos are as crappy as these first four.








The bassist wasn’t even wearing a shirt…and normally I would be fine with a guy not wearing his shirt, but not this one…



Then finally it was Ryan’s turn. Pretty much as soon as he got on stage he smiled at me, then tried to grab my hand, but at that time I totally wasn’t paying attention so I missed it. (I suck at life!)


It was so awesome to see Ryan live again; it almost felt like a dream…because I never thought I would get another chance to go to one of his shows. I took video of “Breathe” "Start a Fire” and “Psycho Suicidal Girl” The audio is good, but the camera wasn’t ever still. I am not good at taking videos. Pictures on the other hand turned out amazing (not as good as Sydney’s, I’m sure) but for my first time using my Canon Rebel T1i at a show, I like to think I did pretty well.

Pictures of Ryan and his band:

Artie: Bass

Dallin: Keys

Dan: Guitar


Ryan


As Ryan was leaving the stage he turned and smiled at me again.

Normally Ryan stays at the venue for a few hours to meet with fans at the merch table but he didn’t feel well after the show so he didn’t stay.

Thriving Ivory was just as amazing as last year. I am so glad I was able to see them again. Hopefully I will get to see more of their shows in the future. It was really hard to get pictures of Clayton (the leader singer) he moved around too much…or maybe I just suck at working my camera, either way it was hard:


Clayton
Drew


Even though I didn’t get to talk to Ryan this time, I was still really happy because I finally got to meet Thriving Ivory…I wanted to last year, but Heather was tired and wanted to go home. Scott Jason, who plays keyboard and writes songs for Thriving Ivory wasn’t at the merch table either. At least I got to meet Clayton, Drew and Paul.

Ryan is going to be at Girls Night Out this year (September 9th) so hopefully I will get to talk to him again then.

P.S. Ryan and Clayton were both wearing the same outfits as they were wearing last year when I saw them…isn’t that weird? Proof…
