Chop Suey
Seattle, WA

RECAP in BULLETS:

  • got off work early, picked up my sister, drove to U of W for dinner, ate too much.
  • drove to the venue, found parking spot two blocks away. perfect start~
  • short line in front of Chop Suey, like really short, that was 30 minutes before door opened.
  • NOTE TO SELF: NOT EVERY GENERAL ADMISSION CONCERT THAT YOU HAVE TO GO WAIT SIX HOURS BEFORE DOOR OPENS!
  • heard a bit of soundcheck, Start a Fire~
  • my sister kept saying “I don’t even know what he (Ryan) looks like” and everyone told her he’s TALL and always in black.
  • Ryan came out to greet fans right before 6:30. my sister now knows what he looks like~ *lol* problem solved!
  • he signed my CD after asking me my name and how I spelled it ♥
  • I TOLD RYAN STAR TO LOWER HIMSELF DOWN WHILE I WAS ON TIPTOE. dude is sooooooo tall *lol*
  • snapshot!

  • got inside, jaw dropped at how small Chop Suey was. *lol* seriously tiny tiny place. the stage is probably only 15-20 feet wide?
  • went to the front but eventually dropped to second row. whatever whatever. I have to learn how to mark my territory.
  • #NeedMorePracticeAtConcerts
  • my sister went to stand around merch area since I forgot to bring her earplugs ^^”
  • met a Thai girl there, she stood right behind me. how weird and random was that?!
  • a lot of peeps there were Justin Nozuka fans
  • opening act = Ry Cuming. Australian cowboy *lol* he sang the beginning of Hallelujah kinda off key. his keyboard player was cute though.
  • the stage was really dark. I took a couple of test shots during Ry’s set and pretty much gave up on photo ops :(

  • Setlist:

  • We Might Fall on piano. so beautiful
  • but that corner was sooooooo dark. horrid stage light…

  • Banter before Last Train Home was the most hilarious thing ever.

    Hey Sara, Just came across this post from Ryan’s Seattle show last September. He is amazing, really, really nice, soooooooo talented, and pretty easy on the eyes! Isn’t he? I saw him in August in LA at the Troubador and have some amazing video’s on YouTube from that show . . . Sweaty, . . . Hot, Ryan! As usual, I just loved your recap of this Seattle show! And I’m so glad that you had the chance to meet him. He is such a nice guy! I thought that your pictures were fantastic . . . looking at them makes my heart skip a beat ( : >~ Once again, Thanks so much for your amazing recaps. Our guy “DC” is rolling right along to his next “Record” release, and it’s been so much fun to watch! Can hardly wait for your next “David” episode!
