What a way to end 2011 and begin 2012. I never go out on new years eve. Ever. I hate the crowds and the drunkards. So I have always stayed home and been home before midnight. This year, not only did I go out, but I went to New Jersey. We didn’t even book a hotel because it was so over priced. We just bought our roundtrip bus tickets and headed out.
The show started at about 10:15pm, no opening band (yay!), they had a brief intermission ‘to go practice Your Favorite Weapon (their words) at around 10:45. Came back on around 11:15 and played until 12:45 am.
I have Bieber fever for Brand New.
The year isn’t over, but Brand New at the Paramount in Huntington, NY tonight was the best show I’ve been to all year. Nice sized venue, although the sound could have been much better. The band was great, energetic and having fun. They interacted with the fans, which is always great. And the setlist was a dream. They played Vices & Gasoline back to back, I don’t know how I didn’t faint.
