Joe and I were front and center for the entirety of New Found Glory’s 10-year anniversary of Sticks And Stones tonight at Bottom Lounge. I got kicked in the face, was crushed against the stage, and had crowdsurfers repeatedly falling on my head, but it was all worth it to have Jordan Pundik singing a foot away from my face for most of NFG’s set. When he held his mic in front of me during “My Friends Over You” and I could have died from excitement right there.
By the grace of some higher power, I ended up snagging setlists from The Story So Far and NFG, as well as 2 of Chad’s picks. And to put a cherry on top, Cyrus handed me a drumstick before leaving the stage.
tl;dr: NFG was amazing, and I left the Bottom Lounge with a huge haul.
