Finally, here it is. THE BIG UPDATE ON HOW I WENT TO SEE ANTI-FLAG TWICE. As you may or may not know, I am a huuuuuuuuuge fan of Anti-Flag. Maybe I can illustrate it best with my last.fm profile – as of this writing, Anti-Flag has been played 7,524 times on my computer. This does not include all the times I listen to them in the shower, or while doing the dishes in my old house, or when I used to be able to listen to music on my phone. So yes, I kind of dig their music ;)

The first time I saw Anti-Flag was in 2006, I got into them kind of late. It was the birthday of a friend of mine, who didn’t even show up. Muffin already knew A-F because he was into lots of cool music way before I was, but had never seen them live, so we went to Waterfront in Rotterdam. I had only heard one song by them then, ever. That night… changed my life. 2006 was a very Anti-Flag-filled year. I got hooked on them, I went to all their shows in the neighbourhood and wanted to never miss them again if they ever got near. The bad part is, I’ve missed out on 3 shows [due to circumstances such as being broke, a gig being far away, not having a tent]. The good part is, apart from those 3 shows, I have seen Anti-Flag the eight times they got near me so far ;) This year isn’t over: if all goes well I’m going to see them three more times! Whoooo.

So anyway, May 26th, 2009. Anti-Flag was playing in Brussels! I could NOT miss that for the life of me. I had decided I *had* to go, since it was very very near me, and I could get a press pass. It didn’t even matter that I had an exam the next day. “I rock at art history, I can study in the train,” I told myself life would sort itself out, I just HAD to go to this concert. And so I went. And it was magical.

I’m going to post the photos one by one on the next page, with text on how amazing it was, because I think that’s just the best way to look at photos. [I know, I keep changing my mind on how I want to do this blog! Aahh! haha.] Yet if you’re lazy, here’s some thumbnails that you can also click on to see the photos anyway. Enjoy :)

So! Here’s my concert "review" in which I am obviously totally biased. Haha!

It was the first time for me seeing Anti-Flag in Brussels, but fortunately I was lucky enough to know a guy who works at the venue, so I could legally bring Marie Antoinette and take lots of photos. For this reason, I decided to stand in the front, center of the stage. Apart from festival shows, I don’t think I’ve stood center – I’ve always stood at the right, at Dos’ side. [I wonder why... ;)]

Justin Sane

This ‘new’ position allowed me to take some nice photos of Justin, and so I did. There were two lovely people standing behind me, who had come all the way from England to see Anti-Flag. The girl was very sweet, she gave me earplugs because she noticed I’d been covering my ears. [I have two perforated ear drums, it's not really a fun thing to have when there's loud music and you're in front of a stage. Usually I bring my own ear plugs but now I'd forgotten.] So I made friends :)

The show, in one word, was AWESOME! There was a really good vibe, the crowd was so into it! When the crowd is into it, Anti-Flag will do awesome things. A lot of people were crowdsurfing, even Chris #2 [Dos] was crowdsurfing, and at some point a whole lot of people got up on stage and started having a party with the band. It was great.

They played quite a lot of older songs, Mobilize/Terror State/For Blood And Empire stuff, not so many songs off Bright Lights of America, and also quite a few new songs. It was nice to see that they worked quite well in concert. I really like the new album, it’s really powerful and that also comes out during the show. The band didn’t talk much (since they figure fans already know what they’re about, so they can play more, talk less!) yet with one song Justin explained what it was about, it just showed that he really stood behind the meaning of that song.

Really the best part of going to an Anti-Flag show, is just having a great time. It’s not so much about hearing their songs [because I couldn't hear the vocals really well, I don't think I could hear Chris Head at all to be honest :/] as it is about making new friends, going crazy and just having a great time. It’s the best when the band is having a good time themselves, too. I’ve seen them when they weren’t really feeling it, and it shows. It’s human, but it’s a bummer. That said, I think this show was the one where they just topped everything I’d seen them do before and went even more crazy. I love them :)

What happened was, after their regular set, they gave us an encore. There was this girl that climbed on the stage, started shouting "we want more! we want more!" in Justin’s mic for about… three seconds, then this security guy came and just LIFTED HER UP, as if she was a piece of furniture or whatever… and walked off. It was hilarious!

Justin & #2

The encore though. The encore was EPIC. What happened was this: first Chris #2 came back with a megaphone. He started singing, soon joined by Chris Head on the guitar. Meanwhile, people were doing things on the stage, carrying drums and a stool and whatnot, into the crowd.

Justin also came on stage, the song was Power to the Peaceful by the way. So imagine Chris singing through a megaphone and Justin singing and playing…

And then all of a sudden I’ve found out that what they were doing is setting up a drumkit in the crowd, because Pat Thetic is playing the drums, not on stage, but in the crowd!

This is what I could see at first, Dos singing. Yet when Pat was all set up, he too disappeared briefly into the crowd to join the party they were having over there. Sadly I was too tiny to get any photos of all this, but I swear it did happen and it was epic.

After the show I hung around a bit, I bought a t-shirt and chatted with the guy who was with the support band [a Dutch band!] and talked about going to the next show as well, which would be in the Netherlands. I also found my new friends again, and hung out a bit with them. They were going to wait for the band, which I unfortunately couldn’t do because I had an exam the next day. I was very sad, because I’d never met Chris #2 [Dos] or Justin Sane or Chris Head ever at one of the bazillion shows I’d been to. For some reason, they never come out. Yet I had met Pat Thetic twice or maybe even thrice already! So yeah. He came out again, and we took a picture – someone else took it, and she didn’t know how to use my DSLR, which is why Pat is making that "is this working?" face. Haha.

As you can guess from the title, this was a striped-socks post.

YAAAAA so I spent the last week being on some sort of Anti-Flag-high. I'm still on it, a little bit, to be honest. And even though I already wrote my VERY QUICK UPDATE... here's photos!

IMG_6813 IMG_6814

For a change, I was *right* in front of Justin. I usually stand more to the right, the reason being... ^^ .... obviously. I think it was actually the first time for me not to be next to Dos. The very first show, I was next to Dos, and even at the festivals, I was always more at his side. It was nice to have a different view. [But it didn't keep me from taking photos of Dos, as you can see.]

Of course the result is a SHIT TON OF PHOTOS OF JUSTIN!

IMG_6815 IMG_6816

okay okay, I"ll cut it.Collapse )

IMG_7052

I think that pretty much looks like a setlist, with the epic encore missing, but for the most part, yes, that was the setlist.

IMG_7053

And then there's me and Pat and some random blurry person in the background xD

I rarely post videos [I never watch them either] but this one is nifty.




Unos: Pat & Head are just there. Just. there. And what's up with the squatness?
Dos: STOP SQUIGGLING, you're like a little kid, omd, [hey, I just figured that oh my dee can be "oh my dos"] it's better than just standing stiffly but it's distracting from Justin's words!
Tres: I agree with him though. And Pat and Dos. Peace!


OH AND BY THE BY, you should check out this one video made with a Canon Eos 5D Mark II. In HD. And it's awesomecakes. I was just staring at it like o_________O all the time. Fuck yeah. It's like millions of photos put together, all so great, amazing bokeh <3 and I'm like WANT WANT WANT. No need to get different cameras for filming and photographing. I bet you could just print out stills and they would be amazing.

It has music from my favourite movie ;D
SRSLY though, it's a DSLR! I'm in Loveeeee. Less than 100 years ago only the Leica came out! And we're here with DSLRs with 578439573489 ISO and HD video!
I wanted the 5D before because it was awesome, but it got 53489574389 times more awesome. By the time I have saved enough money I hope there'll be even another model, eeeek!!
