I'm always working on new grand ways to avoid doing any work... [01 May 2005|07:19pm]

Hello, friends.

Hey Mercedes is over now and I never had the chance to see them live and that makes me so sad. So I listen to their songs everyday and, to make my life a little more complete, I sit on this pc and make icons... Yeah, they are not so good, and very simple but it's my best. So, I why not share? Please be nice. And fell free to use!

PS. None of these photos are mine. The Metro one I took from the post below... If the persons who owns it doesn't want it posted, I can delete, just let me know!

Thank you very much.

Show me where it hurts [26 Apr 2005|02:58pm]

I flew in from Arizona for the show and it was worth every penny.
I took a massive amount of pictures but I'm only posting a few.
I was between Bob and Todd so the majority of the pictures are of them (okay mostly Bob) which is pretty usual for me.
They are somewhat large so this post probably isn't dial-up friendly. Sorry.

So I just came back late last night from my weekend trip to Chicago. I live in Orlando, left early Friday morning, went to the Chicago aquarium then to The Metro for the last show. I'm not used to seeing HM at a big venue like that, but it was still very neat. I've never been so far away though, and I'm used to being able to talk to them after the show or do something cool like that.
Anyways, they played I think the entiredy of Every Night Fireworks, and all of their first EP with Bells. It was the first time I had seen them play Save A Life too, and thats one of my favorites. They played some new stuff, and I'm not too excited about their last album, but it was still good to see it. This was my...fifth time seeing them. lol I'm somewhat of a fanatic, you could say. I also love Chicago so it worked out perfectly.
I took pictures but they didnt turn out well cause I was far away. If anyone has any, plleasee post them, it'd mean a lot. Also if anyone has the set list I'm sure eveyone is dying to know what it was.
Oh and feedback on the new EP. I bought it at the show and I like it, I was just wondering if anyone else did.

One last thing. I'm reallyyy glad I got to hear them play Quit and Que Shiraz one last time. :)

an amazing final show [25 Apr 2005|09:56am]

Took me 5 hours to get there then fighting another hours worth of traffic on the i-90 but i made it. The second band was just finishing their set when i arrived. I had bought my tickets through ticket bastard, only to find out that the show wasn't sold out and could have saved 12 bucks. I tell you what i wish i had been able to see them last year when they played in covington Kentucky. The energy of the show was just amazing! The first song of the set was Boy destoyers. I was expecting them to finish with go on drone but that was played i am guessing about the middle of the set. A total of 22 songs played and every single song was just so amazing. My only beef was the acoustics inside the metro really sucked. Either that or the sound guys have no idea how to do a sound check. Did anyone else that went notice this. I had a really hard time most of the time hearing the words. I wanted to post the play list but i haven't heard most of the previous work so i didn't want to post an incomplete list. I also got a lot of pic on my camera phones. The website had said that no cameras were allowed so i figured i would be sneaking some pics. However when i got in there. Everybody and their uncle was taking pics. I should have just paid for another ticket and run to my car and got my camera but i already had a really good spot on the floor in the center behind where they were slam dancing. To anyone that didn't make it. I really hope they play a renunion show

[ mood | giddy ]

I just bought my ticket to the farewell show in chicago. I missed my chance to see them when they came to kentucky last year. A shame such a great group is breaking up. This is worth the 4 or so hour trip i am gonna have to make from cincinnati to chicago. Is anyone else planning to go?

as you can read, i'm new to this community : ) [27 Oct 2004|02:31pm]

i've never been a "fan" before this week but my knowledge of braid and consequently hey mercedes has existed for quite a long time now. i stumbled upon buying "everynight fireworks" somewhere i don't remember and the first few times i tried to listen to the album my mind broke in two. i couldn't handle it. i heard nothing but noise.

i recently posted the following into my journal and since this community exists i thought i'd share my feelings towards hey mercedes with you in hopes that someone can relate to me and perhaps expand my unimpressive knowledge of the band:

when you come to will you come true? this music is pure emotions. i have stifled my brain and stripped it of every last ounce of imagination trying to depict its essence in words. i just can't do it. these riffs don't relate in an intellectual way. it's emotion. feelings. when i can look into someone's eyes and know exactly how they feel with a beautiful sense of harmony around in that moment of time that is hey mercedes. that is the only music that's ever opened this side of my mind. i can't quite grasp it. it's learning something new where i usually have to repeat everything over and over to understand[like playing piano.] i can't stop listening. i've finally sunken into the quicksand [that was definitely a struggle and a half] and i can see all the layers of the earth and each note brings new perspective into those tiny glimpses of touch, "the intangible," the sense that i am unable to describe.
