Tour Blogger: Buffalo, NY

By. Michelle

I’m a planner. And a list maker. I like to keep things in order before an event as much as I can, so that when the day comes, and I’m inevitably excited and rushing around, I won’t forget anything. It was doubly important for me this time, excited as I was about winning Tour Blogger for MCR (a huge, huge thing for someone who wants to get into Concert Photography).

I made my list on 8/10. Camera, extra clothes (in case of rain), painting, ticket, wallet, etc. Pretty standard. I probably could have remembered enough of it without the list, but hey. Better safe.

With my essentials packed up (and a stop at Starbucks), I was ready! I was also way earlier than I needed to be. I arrived at the venue (Darien Lakes Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, NY) at 11:15. There were two people there before me, a really nice couple that I made friends with, Dominic and Melia. We had a good laugh about being so early and kept each other sane throughout the day, watching the concert set up, people wandering by and taking random pictures to amuse ourselves.

Tour Blogger: Honda Civic Tour Boston

I can still remember the first time I ever heard My Chemical Romance play live. I wasn't at a concert and I wasn't watching them on a live TV show. I was only in the seventh grade. I barely knew anything about what concerts were or what the big deal about them was. It was a hot summer day, and I can remember sitting on my bike on the corner of my street, most likely drinking a blue slush puppy from the store down the street. An older friend of mine who had a collection of MCR t-shirts and merch had been anticipating their show for months and called my cell phone. I couldn't hear what he was talking about, all I could hear was the distorted sound of screaming and yelling and I wondered to myself what the point of listening to this was. But then through all the noise and commotion, I could hear the music. I did know a few My Chemical Romance songs, (“Cemetery Drive” was probably my favorite back then. I had a thing where I'd always listen to it whenever we drove by a cemetery.), but the names Gerard, Mikey, Ray, and Frank meant nothing significant to me in those days. I knew they were kind of dark and they weren't like any other bands I saw on FUSE. I didn't know they would one day consume my life.
