Just like to tell you a story about my one and only vast concert I was able to go to. I went to the VAST/Eve 6 concert. As we were waiting for the first band to go on (American HI-FI), I said to my friends, "I'm so getting a drum stick tonight." Well, Hi-Fi got done and I was getting pumped to see VAST, so I got in the middle of the floor so I could get a better view of them. When the lights went out and they started playing I just went nuts. They played a sweet set with all of my favorite songs. About halfway through their set, I noticed the guy right behind me was able to get a drumstick, well that just pissed me off that I didn't even see it coming. It was there second to last song when they started playing "Free" and about halfway through it, the drummer threw out a drumstick, and it hit me in the shoulder. To bad though I couldn't grab before it hit the ground, so me and this other kid were looking for it and we both grabbed it at the same time. So I looked him right in the eyes and said, "This is mine, motherfucker!" We started fighting for it, I would be damned if I wasn't getting it. Soon though there was another person being greedy and tried to take it away, too. So we had 3 people fighting over this drumstick, luckily my friend saw what was happening so he joined in to help me. We had about 4 people whipping around violently while they were still playing "Free." This went on for a good 5 minutes, until finally my friend was able to rip away the last person. (I was ripped away while I had to get my glasses from the mosh pit.) As a gift he gave me the drumstick and by that time VAST was playing "Temptation," I was on such a high off of adrenaline I felt like I was about to pass out. Luckily I didn't. I still have the drumstick in my bedroom and all of my friends are jealous of me. :P
