Finally got #tdagarim on vinyl!
So the first time I ever heard anything off of tdagarim was when I saw BN in Boca in 2006, they were opening for Dashboard Confessional, who I could really care less about, their music is ok, I just never got into them and I went with my bestie and fellow BN addict @jessi_bakes and we got there pretty early, because BN were playing, BN fans be crazy and they arrive at like 11am to wait in line for general admission so they can hold onto that bar and not get tossed around and sucked into a pit. We didn't make it there as early as we usually do, we ended up catching a movie (Stranger Than Fiction) at my work at the time, Regal Shadowood in Boca before heading over to Mizner Park. So we were hanging out, waiting in line and we hear Brand New practice and all of a sudden we hear these new songs that we had never ever heard before, remember now, tdagarim came out in 2006, like 10 days after this show and the last album they put out before tdagarim was in 2003 and we were flippin the flip out! It sounded amazing! Like some of the best music we had ever heard, ever.
So we got there and we're waiting in line, the line isn't super huge at this point, but big enough to not get first dibs on where to stand during the show and this guy from a local radio station is passing out their radio station stickers and me being who I am, collects everything from every bn show I've ever been to, from parking slips, to drinking bracelets, even though I don't drink and of course the tickets. And a half of hr goes by and the same guy asks the line of people who took a sticker and I told him I had a sticker, he gave about 20 people stickers, and so he guides all of us who took a sticker to the backstage to meet the headlining band, Dashboard! Cause Chris Carrabba is from Boca, so I guess they wanted to do something special, the only time I had ever gone to see Brand New play as the opening band and I get to meet the headlining band who I didn't even really care for! But the band was very nice and I got to see BNs dressing room! We left after BN played their set.
