Simple Plan, Simply Lovely

I’m kind of dead tired right now. Remember my plan about sleeping early? It’s going alright but it’s two hours past my bedtime now, oops.

I’ve been really into making YouTube videos lately (here’s my channel) and I’m trying to get into a good blogging and video blogging rhythm. I also want this rhythm to include time for songwriting and just lazing around, so as you can imagine it’s a bit complicated. Complicated for me anyway, hah.

Last Friday (July 8th) was the Detroit stop of the Vans Warped Tour, a touring music festival that focuses on punk, hard rock, and metal, and naturally I went. 🙂 It was my first Warped Tour and I’m sure it won’t be my last. I wasn’t too excited about most of the bands, but it was a good experience anyway. The environment was great and I had a blast.

I didn’t watch very many bands. I saw Enter Shikari, of whom I am not a fan; A Day to Remember, who have a few songs I like; Simple Plan, one of my favorite bands from when I was younger; and Foxy Shazam, who are just mad live. My favorite set was probably Simple Plan. It was the only one I went into the crowd for and the only one I was really invested in. They played a great mix of classics and new songs:

  • Shut Up
  • Can’t Keep My Hands Off You
  • Jump
  • Thank You
  • Welcome to My Life
  • You Suck at Love
  • Addicted
  • I’d Do Anything

It was a short set but totally awesome.

Simple Plan played at 4:45. Around noon, Meghann (my friend who I went with) and I decided to go have lunch at Hockeytown Cafe across the street from the venue. While we were sitting at our table, four of the guys from Simple Plan walked in. Um, hello.

I got pictures with them; they were really nice. Want to see?


I still kind of can’t believe how lucky we were.

  1. Oh you are indeed lucky, and I’m jealous! I don’t like Simple Plan that much – haven’t heard anything new from them – but those guys are lookin’ good! 😉

    I’ve never been to Warped. Of course, I wish I had gone to the ones Armor were at. *cries silently*

    I’m glad you saw Foxy Shazam. I listened to them the other day and I realised that they must be sooooo awesome live. As we’ve heard, they’ve got antics and a style that is best seen live. *_*

    I need to get me to a music festival!

    I had some video blogs before… I think I stopped because I got sick of it overall. YouTube gives me the heebie jeebies. And I just ‘ugh’ every time I think of uploading a video. XP

  2. YOU MET SIMPLE PLAN! I am so jealous!! I’m not a huge music enthusiast, but they’re one of the bands that I simply love! The first time I heard of them was in Mary Kate and Ashley’s movie – New York Minute 🙂

    I can’t wait to go to a music festival! We don’t get too many things like that here.. we had the MTV Afrivan Music Awards in Kenya last year, which was really cool coz I met Akon and Kanye West 🙂 But that’s about it 🙁

  3. Haha, I just watched your “Breaking My Neck” YouTube video, and I have to say that it’s so funny. 😛 I’m sabbystabby, and I subscribed. Whenever I get the new lappy I want (it has a built-in webcam), I’ll start video logging, too… Sorta. x)

    Congratulations on meeting Simple Plan! That sounds awesome! 😀

  4. I watched your featured vlog “breaking my neck”… very entertaining, lol. I would love to do vlogs, I did one…but no ideas after that, ahh! haha. So, I’d have to plan out the next one. My first one I just kind of improved. xD

    Aww… I used to like Simple Plan to, I grew up on that. ;D Looks like you had fun. I haven’t been to a concert (like where there were celebrities) in years. x__x

  5. Heya! I’ve been a bad blogger LOL. I am glad you’re getting a youtube vibe. I need to do that, but I’m kinda nervous about being on camera. Hopefully I’ll get over it.
    Wow, that’s so cool! I’m not a fan of Simple Plan but they look really nice. I think it’s because in my opinion they ruined Sweet Emotion for me that one year on MTV when they covered it XD and Aerosmith is my favorite band ever. My sister loves them, though. She says if I give them a chance I would too. So who knows. I like a lot of music now that I never thought I would.
    Concerts are so much fun. I wish there were some around here; I’d love to go to more!
    I’m planning on doing an update on Stir Slowly, then on my channel as well. Probably on Monday 🙂

  6. Omg you’re so lucky, you always get to meet band members haha! I’m jealous because I haven’t even been to a concert, not ever. 🙁 I’m not into Simple Plan much but that is pretty damn cool!

    I started listening to Enter Shikari but I’m not a fan of them either. :X IDK, I just couldn’t get into their music tbh. I’m not really a fan of A Day to Remember, although I haven’t listened to their latest album yet and people keep telling me too.

    Sounds like you had a great day though and I’m insanely jealous. 🙂

  7. YOU MET SIMPLE PLAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!. I would love to see them. Ever since they were on the movie New York Minute with the Olsen Twins i’ve been hooked. You are soo lucky. Its nice they were kind to you, i hate it when famous people have such big heads.

  8. Omg, you are so lucky to meet them. The closest I ever met them was at the Olympics Closing Ceremony! 😀 It’s great that you were able to take pictures with them 🙂
