Dance Gavin Dance, Lovehatehero (The Black Sheep, Colorado Springs) July 3rd, 2010
Lovehatehero, oh my oh my. That was a ridiculous set to watch. I don’t remember details but I remember getting sick of the vocalist asking us how we were over and over again and telling people to get up and mosh and what not. Hate that shit. I also remember feeling really uncomfortable with them, especially when they were walking around off stage because they kept blatantly hitting on these girls like crazy and would catcall if they walked by without going up to them screaming ‘OMG I LUV U!’
I was a bit off put by the time Dance Gavin Dance started playing but thankfully they didn’t act like dicks and it ended up being quite fun. The played some of my favorite songs of theirs which was great.
Afterwards, Will Swan spotted my friend and commented on his afro. They had a nice hair moment. So my friend decided to ask Dance Gavin Dance if they wanted to smoke with us and we went near the vans and hung out for an hour or so. I remember one of them (Mess? I think) commenting how sick they were of Lovehatehero dudes trying to get with girls, so they gained some respect there. Matt Mingus was also super sweet. I’m a really quiet person especially in groups especially with people I don’t know. But Matt kept trying to bring me into the conversation which was kind of him. I’d gotten use to those certain male friends ignoring me while trying to talk to bands, so this was refreshing.
Fun show, cool dudes (in Dance Gavin Dance), but I don’t really like their music anymore. Every now and then I’ll listen to a song or two for nostalgia reasons but that’s about all.
