In short, oh, these epic epic people. First of all, their openers were epic too. Their little sister Christie who is adorable (and their brother on guitar for her too) and sings beautiful songs and may have inspired me to make a new fanmix in the near future just with one of the songs. The Narrative who were adorable too and super precious and indie amazing and also their “You Will Be Mine” or whatever it was called was sexy. Susie I-don’t-know-her-last-name had a gorgeous voice and I love when people bop around when playing the keyboard.
Now, Eisley themselves. I could not really see Sherri from my place in the crowd) front row, but wrong side of the stage, and Stacy’s keyboards were in the way) but I had a good view of the rest. Especially Chauntelle, who is beautiful and epic with that blue in her hair just doing her bass guitar thing. When she sang her solos in “Watch It Die” and “I Could Be There For You” everyone cheered, and I thought it was really sweet. And both the brothers were rockin’ it. I mean, they were just hanging in the back doing their insturment thing, mostly, but they were still awesome.
Anyway. They did… well, not all of my favorite songs ’cause I have like twenty-seven favorite songs of theirs at least and since a few of them are off Room Noises I wasn’t expecting them, but they did most of them. I got “Ambulance” and “I Could Be There For You” (as seen above, in admittedly crappy quality ’cause I was working off my digital camera and greatness cannot be expected, but) and part of “Mr. Moon” videoed, I sang along when they invited everyone to and actually hit a few of the notes (an Eisley miracle), I rocked out like nobody’s business, drumming along a little. I was mouthing words like nobody’s business, because I’m that kind of person, and they did “Smarter” and “Invasion” and “Marvelous Things” and “Many Funerals” and “Memories” and “Better Love” (sweet lord that one was epic live) and I was literally heart beating in time with the music. It was beautiful.
And for the encore, Sherri and Stacy did “Just Like We Do.” Which was really sweet, because that was my first Eisley song ever.
All in all? Beautiful.
