Relient K Concert

I am a hostage to my own humanity
Self detained and forced to live in this mess I've made
And all I'm asking is for You to do what You can with me
But I can't ask You to give what You already gave

I fought You for so long
I should have let You in
Oh how we regret those things we do
And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
But so were You

Um, wow. That was a great concert at the Pageant tonight. Relient K was engaging, hilarious, down to earth, creative. Some of my favorite parts of the night was when they started playing "Five. Five dollar. Five door footlooong." :D Also, they did a cover for Under the Sea from Little Mermaid, which was freaking amazing. And of course, they sang all my favorite songs of theirs: High of 75, Which to bury us or the hatchet, Be My Escape, and Sadie Hawkins Dance.

Barcelona who opened for them is also really good. I'm a fan.

Lights also opened. She's a bit more synthetic, which isn't my style, but definitely talented.

Overall... Friends + Delicious Thai Food + Good Music = Great night


  1. AHHH i'm glad you got to see them. relient K is pretty sweet.

    their lyrics show that they're pretty smart aleck (tongue-in-cheek), i think? so playing 'five dollar footlong' doesn't seem too out of their style. heh :D

  2. AHHHH joy, hey it's melissa. !!! YOU ARE SO LUCKY! I WANTED TO GO SO BAD!! i enjoy relient k AND lights. i am sad.
