Sooo.. I've been kinda putting this post off for a little while since my brain has just been mush since the gig, but I guess it's time to slam this up on here :D
Last Wednesday I went to London to see my all time favorite ever band in the entire of the universe ever.... LM.C!!
I didn't sleep much the night before due to excitement but I was tingling with joy as I got ready.
I looked like this...
I arrived in London at around 11am (Totally didn't go the wrong way to the venue) Where I met with Dayle to give him my spare guitar amp and Kei, who was running around with the fan book and flag.
Pretty soon the beautiful Hizu arrived to visit me, which is always a pleasure. We both sympathized for each other.. wearing all black in the 27 degree heat with no shade. SMART!!
Whist waiting for my hotel companions to arrive, I made friends with the lovely group who were queuing beside me, who were actually on the same tube as I had been on XD.
Here is me and Kei with our excited que faces...
When Lisa and Jasmin did finally arrive, The three of us and Kei had to go and check into our hotel (Which turned out to be a bit of a dive but it had a million beds and a balcony so I wasn't gonna complain) and after a few hair and makeup touch ups, we headed to Chinatown for mandatory LM.C themed Purikura.
When we did eventually get back to the venue (3 and hours later) loads more people had turned up, so excitement was growing and growwiiinnggg. At this point I couldn't stand still at all and I was probably really annoying to everyone else in the area.
There were also the cutest Maya and Aiji cosplayers walking around, they looked so perfect and tiny OMG ;3;.
We also got to sample the exotic delights of water being served out a bin, which was surprisingly the most delicious water I have had to date.
By the time we were let inside my brain was just mush that was running out of my ears and my heart was about to explode. So to distract myself, the group I was in prepared ourselves with my secret stash of glowsticks and lightup balloons, whilst dancing to the wonderful Sca music that was being played.
When they did come on stage I was trembling and screaming like a crazy mother fucker. Gutted that Maya was so far away but jubilation that I was literally right in front of Aiji. (Front row... FUCK YEAH!!)
Maya's mic was a bit screwed during the first two songs but he manged to fix it a little, BUT STILL... I COULDN'T HEAR THE FULL BEAUTY OF HIS VOICE!!!
I literally cried from the 3rd song in until they left the stage. Aiji just gave me loads of concerned looks and mouthed "Daijoubu?" Since I was sobbing... Ugly sobbing. But he seemed relived when I gave him a thumbs up. I also must've look possessed cause I was dancing like a freak, poor Lisa got a face full of hair for most of the night.. sorry.
They were so so so AMAZING!! Honestly, they were fucking dope last time I saw them 3 years ago, but I never though they could top that... THEY DID THOUGH!! BRAVO LM.C!!

And here's some pictures curtosy of Charles and Ellen from ELECTRIC BOOM WEBZINE. Thank you guys.
I can't even put into words how fucking amazing they were. I'd love to write what I loved about every song, but I can't really find the words. All I can say is that they pretty much played every one of my favorites.
I didn't want to leave the venue because it felt like the magic would end ;3;
But we got sent out when Kei and the other VIPS were lining up to meet them. So our little group went behind the venue and waited beside the tour bus for her.
BUT OMG YOU GUYS!! When she did get back were were all still so hyped and din't want to leave so we stayed for longer and AIJI CAME OUT AND HEADED OVER TO THE BUS!! He spoke to us and was really sweet!!! AND THEN MAYA TRIPPED UP INTO THE BUS!! I wanted to cry omg he is so precious.
Just when we were about to leave Aiji came back out of the bus and asks if anyone has a pen and started signing stuff for us ;A; I don't think I've ever felt so pleased.
When he was signing my ticket he asked me again if I was okay. Obviously he's not accustomed to chicks crying when they are happpy.
But still, what an absolute sweet heart, I really love him more now.
All in all it was one of the best, if not THE BEST night of my life, and I'm so happy that I got to share it with some of the most amazing people.
I really will never forget it guys..
I can't really put into words how I feel, because they mean so much to me, All of the people I know know were a result of seeing LM.C, and my life is so much happier because of it.
ALL OF THESE FEELS.. I CANNOT HOLD THEM!!!
As a little thank you, I made them a little gift which Kei gave to them during the meet and greet. I hope they liked it ..
So on that wonderfully happy note, I leave you with my favorite song of all time ..
LM.C - BOYS&GIRLS.
