Papa Roach-Houston, TX 5/4/10!
We woke up around 700am in Corpus, got all packed up and took a new route to get to Houston quicker. There were so many state troopers on our way to the show--it was so annoying! Luckily we didn't get stopped!
Got to Houston around 1200pm--I was freaking out because I only had a 2GB memory card and I needed to figure out how to take more photos in Houston. As soon as we parked at Warehouse Live, I see the guys from 12 Stones walking toward the pub restaurant. I stopped Paul and took a pic with him :)! he is a sweetie!
I called up my friend Miles, who lives in sugarland and he is a lifesaver! We then went to go eat at the pub and then noticed that some people from VIP started arriving. While I walked back I noticed Chad Gray was standing there near bus! He was mad about the venue not giving him the set time for the band but he still was nice enough to take a pic with me!
After that, went back to stand in line. Miles shows up with my 4GB memory card--in fact when I tried giving him $ he said don't worry about it. He also bought me a papa roach bootleg shirt! Awesome friend :) Finally the VIPs go in and me, this other guy I met and these two other girls including Miles watched the soundcheck from the outside. Justin noticed and he closed the door--still we managed to get a wave from Jacoby when we waved that was nice!
Finally, doors are about to open and they separate the VIPs in line from the rest of us. I still managed to get front row with Diana!
Once again, Seasons After hits the stage!
I was pretty excited for 12 Stones--I had seen them in Corpus and Kevin Dorr (Bassist) caught my eye and I loved watching him in Corpus!
Hell Yeah once again--amazing, Chad was great and so was the entire band!
Finally--Papa Roach once again, so estatic! Jacoby looked so amazing as usual--Jerry and Tobin too!
Amazing show once again! Grabbed me another bass pic from Tobin!
After the show, I wanted to wait outside the buses to see if the guys would come out. Diana went back to the hotel and I waited for Miles to drop off my shirt and take me to grab something to eat. We waited and finally I spot Jerry, but he went straight to the bus and didn't come out. Then after 1 hour later, Jacoby comes out and starts signing stuff and taking pictures. I got soooo excited! He came up to me and says " hey cutie, you were front row" I talked a bit and let him know I was headed to Dallas the next day. :)
Then Chad was out there too, he says " hey you were front row the entire time!" He is a sweetheart! Picture # 2 of the Houston Trip!
After this, Miles and I headed to go grab a bite to eat; we tried a coffee shop but they were closed. Luckily, he was soooo sweet and nice and loaned me his netbook that he had in his truck. I was able to clean out my 2GB and I still had so much space on the 4GB that he bought me. So glad I was able to hang out with him a bit before I left for Dallas! I get back to the hotel and go to sleep. We had an early morning ahead of us!
