I'm sorry if I'm getting on people's nerves ^-^
The concert was mindblowing. We ended up right at the stage for the second half of the concert (weren't extremely interested in the first two opening bands, but I knew the third one so we got closer and ended up in the very front). When we went down to the front, Tommy of Tommy and the High Pilots (they were taking their stuff off the stage) saw Jake's Rolling Stones shirt and introduced himself to us. It was pretty amazing. And then Sparks the Rescue? Absolutely fantastic. Alex Roy has so much energy it's absolutely ridiculous. He was jumping around and it made me tired just looking at him. The only complaints I had with their performance were that the bassist hid in the background and they were so loud I felt every vibration in my wrist (sprained it a couple of weeks back by throwing a punch wrong >.<). Jake grabbed the set list for me once they were off stage.
And then Ludo? Oh. My. God. First of all, best moment? When Tim Convy (my favorite) reached out into the crowd and I got to grab his hand. *shrieks* (such a fangirl, such a freaking fangirl) There was this one guy who kept making smart comments and at one point Andrew Volpe told him to shut the f*** up. And during Good Will Hunting, before the break down: "West Chester, how are you doing tonight?" *cheers* "I'm sorry, I'm a little hard of hearing. West Chester, how are you doing tonight?" *louder cheers* "All right, West Chester, you know what? I know what you're up to, and I don't like it. I'm going to ask you one more time, and I swear to Christ's asshole I will burn this place to the ground with the doors locked if you don't speak up. So, West Chester, do me a favor: listen closely, and respond like a grown-up. How the f*** are you doing tonight?!" *deafening cheers* So Jake was quoting the "I swear to Christ's asshole" the whole drive home. They came into the crowd for one of their last songs and made us all sit on the floor and played "Love Me Dead." For Whipped Cream, we were all forced to do the dance they do in the video (pretty much just pelvic thrusts) and Stamps came out to help us. The drummer (who, in my opinion, is really cute) was not wearing a shirt. And then they walked into the crowd and he placed a hand on my shoulder and kinda guided me out of the way and I was like "eek!" (such a fangirl...). Jake tried to get me the set list for them, too, but someone else got it (who is apparently on DeviantArt because I found her pictures from that night and she said that in one of the descriptions ^-^).
Um, anyway, to wrap it all up it was the best night of my life so far. If you wanna see the video of Good Will Hunting, you can view it here www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-GM1I… (my first YouTube video on this account (the only other YouTube video that I've ever posted was kinda sucky literature and you can see it here www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiqsVX…))

XD I'm not familiar with the bands, but I know a few that I would be soooo excited if that happened to me at their concerts. Congrats! I'm glad you had fun (understatement, I know )!
You definitely have to look up Ludo if you ever feel like listening to new music. One of the reasons I love Ludo even more now was that they seemed so personable. And they were hilarious in between songs.
