Hey guys! So I’m sitting here super bored trying to find a way to amuse myself so I thought I’d continue with the tour stories. So next up is Sacramento, June 10, 2011 at Ace of Spades.
Let’s see the highlights of this night were incredible.
So like idiots we didn’t sleep the night before the show, then we sat outside the venue all day without eating or drinking anything. So by doors we were feeling awful.
Anthony knew who we were the second we told him we were the HSRoadWarriors then he introduced us to the rest of Action Item.
Meeting Keegan and Takings Not Stealing. Keegan gives the best hugs. Then they were so sweet, we were dying of thirst and the venue wouldn’t sell us anything yet so one of the guys from Takings Not Stealing went and bought it for us <3
Then we asked Brannon to sign our Takings Not Stealing cd’s and his response was “Anything for you pretty girls” Which totally made our night.
Halfway through the show we almost passed out and legit ALL the bands eyes were on us all night worried as heck that we were gonna pass and we were right up front.
Mike tossed a guitar pic and it landed on the ledge right on the other side of the gate so me and JoJo were stretching trying to reach it for like two songs and it made Mike smile.
We gave Kat and Katelyn and Chelsea a dozen roses. Then we gave AI and HS one rose a piece and Alex told JoJo that he was gonna put them on his drums and he did. Which we found out later from Chelsea that he had said that that was his ‘new thing’
He still has those roses on his drums at almost every show which is so great cuz it’s kind of like everytime he goes on stage and sees the roses he remembers where he got them <3
Then at the meet and greet I was between Jason and Mike and Jason bent over to put something down and I tripped over his foot and ended up almost falling to I put out my hand to steady myself and it happened to land on his thigh. Lol. I hope he didn’t notice but omg I died a bit lol.
We told Katelyn why we felt sick and she told us to stop talking to her and go eat immediately that she would talk to us later. She’s so sweet
Then we FINALLY met Sunderland. We were so stoked because McKinley was like “Wait! Are you guys the Road Warriors?” When we said yes he was like so happy. We felt awesome that he knew who we were before we knew who they were since they’re on itunes and stuff.
So we drove about two hours south of Sacramento towards LA before we stopped at a Pilot and ate at a Denny’s. Then I thought I lost my license because I was so tired I didn’t remember where I put it so we had to tear my car apart to find it.
Finally, and this is the funniest thing.
We fell asleep in the car, about an hour later I woke up and freaked out because it felt like the car was shaking and I’m thinking that we’re in Cali its an earthquake. I wake JoJo up and she wakes up long enough to say she felt it too. I fell back asleep. I woke up an hour later and still felt it.
I woke her up again, she opened her car door and stuck her foot out on the ground and said “Nope it’s your car” then she closed her door and passed back out. So I did too. A half hour later I woke up and STILL felt it so I moved my car, not sure why, and still felt it. So we both stepped out of the car and realized that it wasn’t the ground or even my car shaking it was us.
We were so pumped on adrenaline and so exhausted and still feeling the bass from the concert that we had the shakes. That was our interesting tour kickoff lol.
