David Cook & the Anthemic. Gavin DeGraw. David Archuleta. Jeff LeBlanc. And Neal Tiemann of HoH. HA.
Best souvenir from a show?
David Cook huglifted me in Houston postshow M&G. I still don’t know how I survived that hug. *lol*
Longest time in line?
David Cook in Houston. Early VIP because DCook was closing the show that night. Not to mention running like a bunch of lunatics from parking garage to the venue *lolz* Lots and lots of waiting in line, for the soundcheck, for VIP photo, for merch, for postshow VIP. We’re not in line the whole time but it was a long ass day, left Megan’s place around 2pm and didn’t get back until almost 1am the next day.

3 DCook shows – Austin, Council Bluffs and Chicago.

4 in October – (1) Hell or Highwater and (3) David Cook/Gavin DeGraw/Carolina Liar combo packs.
Most shows in one week?
3 DCook shows in 5 days at the end of November. #AllTheExhaustion
Supposedly the Uproar Festival since it’s at the amphitheater but I went there for only HoH set on side stage *lolz* so I’d say NKOTBSB at Tacoma Dome.
Hell or Highwater at BestBuy mini stage. ^^”
Any drunk encounters?
A group of ladies next to me in Chicago. Drunk and loud and annoying. One of them fell to the floor. Another spilled half her beer on my left leg. Boo.
Top 5 best 2011 concert moments:
1. David Cook right on top of me in Council Bluffs. Legit a drop dead moment.
2. David Cook singing Fade Into Me unplugged in Kansas City. It was phenomenal.
3. David Archuleta smiled and mini waved at Tina and me in Anaheim. Hilarious sound effect captured on Tina’s video. *lol*
4. David Cook telling junk throwing girls in Chicago to “knock it the fuck off.” It was a WTF moment, but I loved how he handled it.
5. Devin Bronson staring into my ex-boyfriend’s soul ALL NIGHT LONG in Chicago. *lolz forever*
Top 5 worst 2011 concert moments:
I could only think of one, when someone asked for Permanent during HOB soundcheck. DCook’s expression was totally shifted. I truly wanted to murder that person.
