Last night I went to see The Airborne Toxic Event at the Showbox SODO.

The Airborne Toxic Event @ TRIX

It was an entirely different show than last year (think more mosh pit, less sitting),
but still completely worth the minor hearing loss this morning.

The Airborne Toxic Event @ TRIX

And.  AND.  AND.  I met 3 members of the band!  Yes, I know.  I'm like the uber-nerd. 
But it was lovely, and they were very kind. 

So I wasn't really able to take any photos ( but look at these lovely ones someone else took! ), but I found this video recorded at last year's concert.

And funny story -- you can totally see me in the bottom left hand corner.  Ha!  How random is that?

    I love the Airborne Toxic Event too!!! Can't wait for them to swing by my hood. My fav band is a Canadian band Sloan. You might like them... check them out I think they were just out West, but if you like the music they are one of the best live bands. FUN times!
