Last night was spent in Seattle, and oh, it was INCREDIBLE.
Not many people understand the reason why I love Brand New, and if you asked, most of them might say it had to do with Jon. It was a band we enjoyed together, and the first Brand New show that either of us had ever seen, we saw with each other. I know all the words to all the songs, I feel the music down to the tips of my toes, and (above all) I believe every word.
That is the most important.
If I were to trace my love though, it wouldn’t start with Jon. I had heard of Brand New before I moved to Washington, and I knew some lyrics to the songs. It was background music in my life before here, but it became front and center after I moved. In many ways, they set the tone of the last four years, and from the most amazing moments to the most god-awful…I can find any lyric in any song that fits my life perfectly.
So, last night was amazing. It was a much different show for me this time around, but I rocked out and danced my ass off because that is what I know. Passion over consequence.
I am on the mend
At least now I can say that I am trying
And I hope you will forget
Things I still lack…
Thank you Seattle. See you in a few days.
