Dear 2004 self,
8 years from now, you will be able to watch a couple of your favorite bands live in Manila. Yes, your emo heart will not explode because eight years is enough time to get over post-teenage angst.
You will be singing along to Transatlanticism live in the flesh (#bestillyouremoheart–that’s a HASHTAG, by the way haha), but also to a whole lot of new songs you will also love, like What Sarah Said (cry, cry, cry) and You Are a Tourist.
And yes, you’re gonna get that setlist!
Hopscotch will be long gone by this time, but you’ll see The Used with the same fun and dumb friends, and of course, Wacky! (Why I’m saying “of course” is another surprise! Haha!)
Yup, they’ll play Blue and Yellow, but they won’t play Buried Myself Alive. And Bert won’t be able to reach the high notes anymore, but that’s okay because you’ll see the funniest wall of death and mosh pit ever!
Oh, Chris Carrabba’s also there at the same concert (gasp number two!). His is an acoustic set, but don’t worry–you’ve already seen him two years ago with the rest of the band.
And then, there’s Taking Back Sunday. YES! I’m not shitting you.
John Nolan’s back with them! And he’ll be singing the only Straylight Run song you know. Yep.
It’s just April, but your 2012 will be awesome. I promise.
