My mom came too, as well as my little sister who's 10, and there were tons of very tiny little girls there. The first opening band, called Gob, said "fuck" about twelve times.
It was exciting turning around and watching my mom sitting there with an "Um? Stop?" kind of smile on her face. She asked the security guard if she could throw her bottled water at them. He said no.
We were in the mosh pit because we got there way early and had floor tickets. It was exciting because we got to sit there and watch the security guard turn everyone away because the pit was "too full" (a lie, he could have easily crammed thirty more people in). Usually I am the one getting turned away.
NOTE: Avril Lavinge fans don't mosh. They barely jump. They sort of stand there and occasionally fling their arms in the air. And 80% of them dress like her, so it was rather terrifying being in a pit of stagnant pseudo-punks.
My sister is insanely short, so she was constantly asking me to pick her up, which ended up causing the left side of my ribcage to ache like no other by the time the show was over.
The good thing about going to see an artist who has only one album out is that they play all of their songs, and the good thing about having Kazaa is that you can download all the extra tracks they didn't put on their American cd because EVERYONE LIKES EUROPE MORE THAN US. So that when said bonus track is played by said artist, you can sing along while the neighbor's kids you've brought along are going, "Huh?"
At the end of my very very favorite song, "Unwanted", they released eight billion little silver confetti strips onto the floor. IT WAS SO PRITTY OMG.
Avril did covers of "Knocking on Heaven's Door" and Green Day's "Basket Case", both of which I was quite impressed by.
At the end of the concert, the first song they played over the speakers as we were all leaving was "You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morissette, which is amusing because both my mom and Anne pronounced Annie's first reactions to Avril was, "She sounds like Alanis Morissette."
YOU CAN TELL ME HOW GEEKY I AM......NOW.
