New Title!

You may have noticed that I changed my title from JessieAnn13 to Punk Rock Jessie.
I've been wanting to do it for a while and it may change again (although i doubt it because I really like this title). 
More to come! Signing off as always:

I See Stars and The Word Alive Concert.

Back in June, my friends and I went to see I See Stars and The Word Alive at a venue none of us had ever been to before (as mentioned in an earlier post).  Let's just say it didn't go as planned.
The venue was a warehouse with no air conditioning and two garage style doors open on one wall.  After the first band played (I have no idea who they were, I think they were local though) and we had had the sun beating down on our backs for a bit, Hailey and I hauled butt to the car to pull our hair back & change to tank tops. (Never again will I go to a possibly boiling summer concert without a spare tank top in my bag).  On our way back to the building we realized that we were covered in stickers from the grass we walked through.  We did find the time to snap a quick picture before we were completely sweat soaked.

When we got back we watched Crown the Empire, who was actually pretty good.  

I thought it was kinda cool that they dressed up a bit, but I kept hoping none of them would pass out in the heat.
After their set, Hailey and I went outside to wait for I See Stars to play.  I took the opportunity to take a picture of the building.
While we were outside and another band played, something got unplugged and the sound was affected, they lost electricity to the stage, and I believe they lost power to part of the building as well, but I'm not positive.  All the commotion caused the band to cut their set short and at this point, a lot of people left.  We stuck around in hopes that things would improve.
There was still a lot of technical difficulties and the band ended up relying on "stage sound" (oh the many terms I learn from Hailey's brother Cameron).  They either couldn't get the lights to set up or work properly so one of their crew members held up their lights for them the entire time, as you can see below.
The guy in the middle is a stage diver mid jump.  There was a guy before him (I'm not sure during what band) that dove off into the worlds smallest mosh pit and landed on his face. We were worried until he just got up and started dancing again...

The light guy was a real trooper!

 The crowd was really small, and at one point the bands (clean) vocalist said that it was pathetic how the music scene had deteriorated, not taking into account that a lot of people had just recently left.  He later said that we were an amazing for such a little crowd.

The performance was amazing as usual and we had a lot of fun.  We did leave shortly after because we were all so tired.
I had a really great time with my friends despite the less than awesome circumstances.
Oh! Also, we saw the booty short crew there as well.  You may be asking yourselves, what is that?  Well it is this group of guys that we see at almost every concert we go to and they ALWAYS wear booty shorts.  It's both hilarious and somewhat terrifying!

So, I really haven't been on my blogging game recently.  I've had a lot going on but I am back :)
Here's what I've been doing:
In June I went to see Nickelback, Seether, Bush, and My Darkest Days with my mom.
Before The Concert
During the Concert.
The concert was amazing (I'll post more pics later) and I had such a good time with my momma :)
It was my first large stadium concert and I was blown away by the show the bands put on! (Hint: lots and lots of fire :p)

I also went to see ISeeStars and The Word Alive with Hailey, Cameron, and his friend Billy.
It was at this ridiculous venue that none of us had ever been to and had noooo idea what would be like.
This place was way out in the sticks and the building itself was, as determined by Hailey and I, a warehouse barn thingy (very technical terms here, try not to get confused :p).  There was no air conditioning (something we've dealt with before) and the tall grass you hiked through to get there left you covered in stickers.  The sound was not good and at one point they lost power to the stage and I think half of the building as a whole. When we watched ISeeStars, they did well and one of there crew members legitimately held up there lights, one in each hand, for the entire show so that some of their effects could still be used.  We didn't stay for The Word Alive because we were all hot sweaty and exhausted.
Me and Hailey:

The outside of the venue:
It was a hectic crazy and strange night but I still had a good time with my friends.
We also went to see Magic Mike a few weeks ago.  I'm not even going to comment....

In other news, tomorrow night I am going to see Forever the Sickest Kids for the 5th time!  What makes this even more wonderful is that it is being held in one of my favorite venues that was shut down for a while but has now reopened!  I'm so happy about this, I don't even have words. :)

I hope everything is going well with everyone! 
To my new followers (30 now, I can't believe it! You guys are amazing and I love you!), welcome to the madness!
Peace, Love, Music<3

My first Youtube Video

It's nothing special, just the Tumblr accent challenge.  I got the idea from Amy of Stripy Tights and Dark Delights and Sary of The Walrus Room.
Anyways, hope you guys enjoy and feel free to go to my youtube channel and check some of the concert videos I have over there!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
And now for the fireworks!
