Oh maaaaan. Yeah, I know it's been ages. I'm so sorry! However, I've had exams, thought I had mono, went to Rochester for a day, worked a lot, etc. Anyway.
So yeah, about that Rochester trip. I went to go see the Matches, and also because my friend Caroline from Australia is in the States for a little while longer, and seeing as she's from another hemisphere, I hadn't seen her in almost three years. Here are some pictures from the trip:
And then, on Saturday (the 6th), my FAVOURITE BAND OF ALL TIME (The Strokes) came to Toronto. Fabrizio and Nikolai went to the Edge that afternoon, and because I'm a big loser, I went to see if I could get guest-list for the London show that's tomorrow night (I did . . . apparently).
I only took one picture there, 'cos I felt like a big enough dork as it was.
Here ya go:
Then . . . the show. Holy crap, it was so great. They played both "Ize Of The World" and "Vision of Division", my two favourite songs from First Impressions of Earth
. I was SO impressed that they managed to pull off "Vision of Division" live. I mean, have you HEARD those guitar solos?! ¡Jesuchristo! Anyway.
Here are some pictures of the pretty awesome opening band, the Most Serene Republic (I apologize for the shitty pictures):
And now, THE STROOOOKES! (Again, I apologize for the shittiness of some of the pictures.)
After the show, Erica and I went to Pizza Pizza, and then Dance Cave, 'cos we were too poor/cheap to go anywhere with a cover. Dance Cave was a good choice, though, 'cos we ended up making new friends with extremely attractive boys. Good times. One of those extremely attractive boys took this
picture of Erica and I feeling up Kelly Clarkson. Then I went to bed around noon. The end!
P.S. I'm going to see the Strokes again tomorrow in London, if SOMEONE calls me to tell me what the hell is up!
