Later that week, I went with my friend Christina to go see them. We counted down the minutes until their set started, and once it did, there was no doubt in the song that was starting; I was about to hear one of the songs that saved my life. I sang along with tears streaming down my face. Soon after came Car Radio, another one of my all time favorites, and I couldn't help but stand open-mouthed at the emotion Tyler poured into this song.
Once their set ended, Christina and I sat on the bleachers, sobered at what just happened. We honestly had no idea what to do with ourselves. I had just witnessed the most life-altering performance of my entire life, and I felt like nothing could live up to that moment. There was a few moments of "Did that really just happen?!" before we knew that we HAD to see these amazing people again.
And we will. See you October 22nd in Milwaukee, Tyler and Josh! |-/
