That was the date of the Disciple concert.
To put it as simply as possible, let me just say this.IT WAS AWESOME.
Yes, it warrants the huge letters, because it was literally amazing. I was right there
, in the first row, just a foot
or so away from the stage at all times. I could literally reach out and touch
the lead singer, and I got him to give me knuckles too. Which was amazing.
I seriously didn't think I was going to get that close, but I was right there. Everyone was so nice, we didn't even have to push our way by, people just stared at my shortness and said "Hey, do you want to move ahead?" I was a little hesitant, but my friend and my sister just pushed me ahead, and the entire group got as close as we possibly could.
There was no better place to be in order to get in the mood.
At first, the opening act (The Chronicles) made me kind of headbang a little, but not much, because I was a little self-conscious at first. But then Disciple came on and I couldn't stop screaming. Every time the music stopped, my ears were muffled, but I didn't care. I screamed, I started to headbang and go insane, and I jumped and sang and screamed and just rocked out as much as I possibly could.
This was my first rock concert, but I doubt it will be the last. I let go so much during that concert. At first, I was nervous, but then I just forgot about it and let the music just make me let go of all my thoughts of looking stupid and just rocked out. And now I want to go again.
Disciple has so many amazing songs. Regime Change, After the World, Things Left Unsaid, Scars Remain... They played all of those songs and, while I sometimes couldn't make out the words because I'm not too familiar with the songs, I still sang along to the songs I knew. The passion was just there.
You could feel the love they had for Jesus through their song, and the atmosphere just made you want to be excited and show your passion too.
Their music would make almost anyone excited. I'm probably the most self-conscious person ever, but I was rocking out with the best of them.
I don't think I can stay anything else about the concert, just that it was amazing, and I am SO GLAD they said they were going to come back. I hope they come back soon!
Also, in case anyone's interested in checking them out, a few of their songs are under the cut, as are the lyrics. I'm really sure you'd like them, but they are so much better live... if that's even possible.( Cut )
Oh, and as one last word, their message at the end was great, powerful, just made me just want to recommit to Christ. Like one of the youth group teens said, it's definitely one of the best I've heard in a while. The lead singer, Kevin Young, can sing, scream, headbang, and yes, deliver a spoken message wonderfully. :)
Now I wanna go see them again!
