i saw them play at warped tour last summer, and it was one of the best shows i've ever been to. they got picked to play an encore, so for the two extra songs, they played 'your guardian angel' and 'the grim goodbye' with the sun setting right behind the stage. one of the best days ever.
so what about you? ever seen rja play live? if so tell about it here... if not what are some other great shows you've been to? :D
i saw them in may, at a local festival.
ronnie played your guardian angel while the sun was setting and it was right by the water so that made it even better.
and then i saw them in february before they were on their way to the take action concert.
they did a signing at a sound exchange. there werent that many people there so it was really amazing.
tey did three acoustic songs and then everyone lined up and they signed stuff.
it was a really intimate show.
but every time i have seen them, it gets better every time.
and then they cancelled the show right before thanksgiving here, whats up with that???
but yeah cant wait for their new album next year, well actually this year :D
oh yeah i have seen them many times. I am from their hometown, middleburg/jacksonville and there really is no best show for me....any hometown show is "the best show" to me. when its a hometown show that is played, its different than anywhere else due in part to us crazy hometown fans and kids. but the cd release show in jacksonville july 14, 2006 was an amazing and awesome show!!! I almost got my neck broken when ronnie jumped in to the crowd and i was knocked to the floor and then trampled by the crowd who was trying to pass him back to the stage during the grim good-bye...and it was the last song. while i was in a lot of pain for weeks after that show from the neck injury i sustained, it was well worth it to have been there, here where it all started
Saw them at Take Action! Tour in Portland early last year, AMAZING! At the end they played The Acoustic Song/Your Guardian Angel then Face Down, said thier thankyous and goodbyes, and walked off. Everyone started leaving, when suddenly, Jon walked out, and asked everyone where they were going! He said they had one more song to play! Hooray! To make it better, Ronnie rocked the fuck out of The Grim Goodbye. FANTASTIC!
once at warped tour in their HOMETOWN Jacksonville, Fl.
then again at their FAVE venue [[or so ronnie says]] House of BLues in Orlando.
warped tour they won the energizer contest, so got to play and extra 10 minutes.
and they threw "Your Guardian Angel" in there right before their closing song, The Grim Goodbye.
two hours before that show, i also got to meet them. My bestest friend made my sweet 16 the most amazing one ever.
then about 4 months later, in november, for her bday i took her and i to see them.
and that was the HOB show. they played three songs i have never heard them play before,
two of which were my very favorite songs.
we also got to talk to them after the show, at like 12 in the morning.
took pics with them and what not. well only three of them. Joey, Duke, and Elias.
but still two MOST AMAZERING days of my life XD
i saw them in warped tour in Camden NJ (philly) it was so cool
i crowd surfed to the front and somehow made it to the front row for the entire set. and they got to play for 10 extra minutes, i could have stayed there forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've seen them twice, once at warped tour last summer and another time at the house of blues in orlando. it was freaking AWESOME. they are so good xD
the first time I saw them I was really far back but I was still thrilled. When I saw them at the house of blues I was right up front it was fucking amazing. I ALMOST caught a drumstick but two guys pretty much took it from me. Meeting Elias was AMAZING too. =]]
First of all let me say...Don't hate me because I'm a hometown fan, because most of my shows have been other places. What can I tell you? I like to roadtrip! There is nothing more rewarding than driving forever with no sleep, talking with your best friends in a car for 4-8-15...whatever hours all excited about going to the show---and then getting to drive the same amount of hours home all excited, reliving the show :) I am right there with Rach in that, as I hear their CD, I can see every move they make in concert in my head. It's not that I have a photographic memory or anything, hahaha, I have just seen them 75 times.
thats effing awesome. i wasnt dissing you if thats what you're thinking. ;] i was just noting that i was on the last call. so dont trip life's good. and thats great that you're so dedicated. and you got me beat at seeing them in numbers. i've only seen them once and it was amazing even though it was a mini concert.
Oh my goodness! I wasn't upset about what you wrote. I write just as I think and sorry if it came out like I was directing it to you. If you hang around me long enough you'll see what I mean.
I'm not all about the numbers. It wouldn't matter if I've seen them 2 times or 200...I go to each concert with the same excitement I had going to the first one. I leave with chills down my spine listening to The Grim Goodbye. If I never get to see another concert of theirs it wouldn't matter because I can relive each and every song, note, gesture, fling, glance, or stance every time I play any of their songs. I never just hear the song...I see it!
Are we able to spot you anywhere on Last Call? I watched each time they showed a girl singing or smiling and thought that would be wonderful to be there.
