If you haven't got any plans for tonight, make sure you get some tickets to one of the biggest ROCK Concerts to ever grace the country. SMASH PROJECT 2012 will definitely give you one heck of an experience to see Dashboard Confessional, The Cab, Cobra Starship and The Used in the flesh! I had first dibs yesterday and it was CRAZY! I was like a fan all over again!
Yeap! That's Chris Carraba of Dashboard Confessional. He was so awesome in person and you won't feel that air between fan and rockstar when you are near him. Quite a nice bub. I asked him about the limited edition album and it looks like a gloomy day for me. It was really limited as in 500 pcs for the US alone. Wish I had that really.
He'll surely bring the house down with the hit single STOLEN. It's my personal favorite that's why you saw that in the post below this one =)
The USED. Let me just tell you... I had a ton and a half of laughs. GRABE Bert McCracken was a CHARACTER. It was really rowdy. I felt his excitement. This bit above alone was the time he was telling I LOVE YOU to everyone... especially the boys hahahah Man it was FUN meeting them!
They were really having fun even if they just arrived 2 hours earlier before this press conference happened. Their music as they say isn't EMO as anyone is implying. It's just ROCK and nothing else. They don't believe they belong to any group or genre. They simply just would like to make music and nothing else. If it's there turn to impress you at the Smart Araneta Coliseum I'm sure you'll have the same dose of what I had that afternoon.
I wasn't joking when I said he was having fun hahaha!
I'm sure you'll have a grand time listening to their more serious music! =) They simply left their former label because they were being screened and suggested a lot of stuff which will hamper their creative freedom. So they fired them LOL!
Okay ladies... don't tell me I didn't warn you!
THE CAB is here!
Yeap, I know... they were good looking eh?!
Their music influences include POP artists too so you can expect a lot more from The Cab come tonight. I'm sure you guys will have a lot of fun. Sorry I can't go I have work hehehe =)
Thank you so much to Dayly Entertainment, Dickies, everyone at Polyeast Records. Thank you so much for the chance to see these rockstars in the flesh. You guys have a grand time in the concert tonight! =)
Oh and as an extra treat, here's a video of the press conference :)
