Blacklisted’s Rock My Town Recap

February 14, 2010

I’m still working on mine, but without further ado, here’s Blacklisted’s version of events from Friday evening’s Rock My Town concert in NYC.

Kradison Concert

I headed out close to 5pm and was a little worried that I’d be too late to get a good spot. When I arrived to the venue I noticed all the menopausal women and smiled.  I knew these ladies wouldn’t have the stamina to stand up for the whole concert. That meant Cale Mills, here I come!

In addition to the aged women, I also noticed that there were very few guys. 90% of the guys attending were husbands roped into the event. The rest included an Adam clone and a bunch of male Kristards. You could tell by the wistful look in their eyes.

In front of me on line were a mother-daughter glambert team. Both really normal, although mom glambert did state that Kris “isn’t very good” and daughter glambert didn’t think he had talent. Oh well, different strokes. Both ladies are members of PF. They asked me if I read MJ and I said that I read it on occasion but that sometimes it gets really snippy. They proceeded to inform me that MJ lost 75% of her hits because she has a Kris bias. Seems MJ is ‘unfair’, ‘moderates people’ and Kris is her favorite. Who knew?

My friend, who’s a huge glambert (she’s never watched AI but saw Adam youtube videos) arrived at 6 and not surprisingly fit right in. She became friends with the 12 closest glamberts. There was gushing and praising and noting that Adam was the hottest man on earth. My friend outed me as a Kris fan. Many looked at me with pity. Poor me. Liking the guy no one came to see. At some point there was mention that we were lucky to see Adam perform in a small venue since he’ll never do that again given how ‘big’ he will become. I rolled my eyes a little at that but hey, I was already outed as a Kris fan, what did I know?

At 6:30pm the lamest Adam wannabe showed up with his mother or possibly grandmother. They cut the line but we were all too grossed out by their appearance to say anything. The poor, big haired, fake blonde was from Victoria (Canada?). Her wannabe son (grandson?) was a cashier. Nana was trying to look 30 but failed miserably. The woman had the most hideous plastic surgery job I’ve ever seen. Her lips were weirdly shaped, she had smoker’s teeth, and her cheekbones looked like Meg Ryan after surgery.  Nana wore a hot topic outfit, Adam inspired jewelry, and four inch sparkly open toed shoes. Mom and daughter glambert in front of me were skeeved out. That was when I knew I was going to like these ladies.

I told my friend to slap me if I tried to dress 20 when I hit 60. The mom-daughter glambert team agreed. They started making fun of all the older women at concerts wearing glitter and shit. They didn’t get it and thought it was ridiculous. Hello, common ground with the ‘enemy’!

Finally we got in at around 7:30 before frostbite set in.  Since my friend had never seen Krallison I gave her the rundown. I stressed that Allison is hugely talented and has a great voice. I mentioned that Kris was amazing and that I thought she would like him once she heard him. I also told her that Kris’ bandmembers were really hot, especially Cale. Of course, she didn’t pay me no mind since she was concentrating on finally seeing Adam perform.

Allison came out and was cute, funny, made self-deprecating comments and basically sang her ass off. Daughter glambert pointed out Kris watching Allison at the upstairs section. Aww, so cute.  From the first song Allison performed my friend was into her. My buddy kept on saying, ‘this girl is great!’. Well, duh. She did ask me how come I knew the words to all of Allison’s songs. When I told her that I had the album, she asked me for a copy. Why, of course.

Then Adam came on. No joke, there were so many old women going nuts I was concerned someone would drop dead. Alas, one dumb heifer fainted and poor Adam had to stop the show until they walked her out.

Once the concert resumed it was same old, same old. Adam would do that thing where he tries to be sexy, which always makes me smirk b/c I know he does it for shits and giggles. Of course, these horny old women take it seriously. My friend who’s not old but apparently horny was ‘ohhing and ahhing’ and stating that Adam’s the second coming of Elvis. I was happy to see her excitement since the Kradison concert ticket was a birthday gift and I knew she was having a great time. Yea meJ.

I had warned my friend that once Adam left the stage we’d rush up front because all the old women were going to the bathroom or to the bar to sit down. Just as I expected, a bunch of old ladies left and I got an even better spot. Right in front of Kris’ microphone. Yea, me!

During the intermission I informed my bud to make sure to take pics since I followed the no camera policy and therefore had NO camera, only my nano. Drats. I then pointed out Cale who was working on setting the keyboards but was turned away from us. I told her, “that man is the most gorgeous thing in this place. YOU BETTER TAKE PICTURES OF HIM!”  When he turned around and faced us, I knew the mofo had seduced my friend. She looked as dreamy as the male Kris fans and she started babbling, “oh my god, he’s GORGEOUS…OH MY GOD, who is that guy, he’s fucking HOT!” I was all, “I told you that Kris had the hottest band. I also told you that the dude right there is my future baby daddy, therefore, close your mouth and gain some respect woman.”  At that moment Cale smiled. My friend became a puddle. *shakes head*

FINALLY Kris came on.  As always he looked pretty and played to the audience. By the third song my friend turned to me….a new convert, a Kristan if you will. Her exact words were “OMG, he’s the best. You were right, he’s THE BEST ONE! I love this guy….Oh man, he’s really gorgeous too….” Once again, I said, ‘duh, I TOLD YOU, ya’ dumb heifer.” Then she proceeded to get in front of me to get closer to Kris…sneaky.

After the concert, as we were walking out, my friend turned to me and said, “I still love Adam, he’s all glitter and spectacle. He belongs on Broadway (oh, oh). He’s like Elvis, a performer. Allison, I love her voice, she’s great. Kris though…*contemplates*…he’s a musician. He engages the audience. He made eye contact with us. He’s relatable. He’s like a modern day Bruce Springsteen even though his music isn’t Springsteen. He really was the best. I could see why he won. Also, you know how much I love him, but Kris is even more talented than John Mayer.” To which I replied, “Well duh, he’s also less douchier.”

    thanks for your recap. that was a clever one and I love your friend 🙂
    Actually I went to John Mayer concert this last week (I was kind of curious of the comparisons made sometimes with Kris and I listen to a couple of songs I liked). For those who say that Kris is better than Mayer, I kind of agree (yes i might be totally blinded by my Kris’s love :)); Kris has a richer and more unique voice than him and I prefer Kris’s songwriting. However Mayer is a better lead guitarist than Kris .. oh wait, that’s why Andrew’s there isn’t it/ …all is well then 🙂

    Girl. I don’t know you, but I wish I did.

    First of all, I’m pretty sure we were super close to each other during Kris’s set. But mostly, I AM SUCH A CALE-TARD. Like, you don’t even know. I met him in December and was just done. He is so sweet, so nice, so genuine. But don’t be fooled, I’ll totally fight you for him. TI can weigh in on the matter.

    And also, my tarding over Cale was caught on video. Twice. I let out two screams to rival Gokey’s when Kris announced he was playing Is It Over. And then when he introduced the band, I let out the scariest “CAAAAAAALE!” you’ve ever heard. I’m embarrassed for myself.

    And I’m so proud of your friend and her newfound Kris-love! Seriously. I love when Glamberts can appreciate Kris. Adam can entertain, but Kris knows how to work the crowd like a pro.

      Oh man, I wish we would have met. I listened in on people’s conversations on the line hoping to find a fellow Cale fan, alas, it was not meant to be.

      lol @ getting caught on tape tarding. It’s becoming a common occurance for Cale ‘appreciators’. BTW my friend was the person who caught the blue boa that Kris threw out. Not only did she become a fan, she hung up that damn boa that she ‘got from Kris’.

        Where were you in line? If you happened to see a tall blonde girl slip on ice and fall on her ass… that was me! I’m just not particularly proud of any of my actions that night. I was in full-on tard mode.

        My Cale-tarding is so bad, though, that Jim Cantiello mocks me for it.

        • blacklisted permalink
          February 15, 2010 5:45 pm

          Cantiello has NO room to mock!

          I didn’t see you fall. I was about 150 people in. I’m really tall with straight dark brown hair.

          I was behind this poor unfortunate plastic surgery victim.

          And in front of this group of middle aged glamberts from the ‘burbs.

    Blacklisted, I forgot to say I loved, loved, loved your recap! I felt like I was there! Did that Adam fan really faint or was she just trying to get his attention?

    • blacklisted permalink
      February 15, 2010 3:06 pm

      She really fainted. The worse part was that it seemed that none of her friends wanted to lose their spot so they didn’t take her to the bar to sit down.

      It was really silly though. I got there after 5pm and had a great spot. I was hydrated and had dinner beforehand b/c I knew the concert would run to close to midnight. These women apparently have never been to a concert so they don’t know how to plan. My guess is that she showed up at noon to be one of the first one’s there. Dummy missed out on enjoying Adam’s performance.

      I don’t know about the supposed 2nd woman fainting, I only saw the first one.

          You’d think they’d decide to help their friend after ADAM STOPPED THE SHOW FOR HER!!!! How selfish can you get? If I ever see any of you at a concert and I happen to faint, please help me.

            Like I said earlier, I think these women may have been tard board buddies. No great loss to them because they are probably going to all hate each other in a few months anyway when there’s infighting and more splinter boards.

    About the herd stampeding off before Kris’s performance: I wonder how many acts are going to want to have Adam open for them, knowing that stuff like that is going to happen, and with fans like that.

    So much word to this! Do the idiots not realize that, in the long run, they are playing a big role in Adam’s downfall if they continue this idiotic trend? It’s hard for me to believe that news of the sparkle cow fanbase has not already circulated around the entertainment world, and what with them choosing to diss the other acts (Kris in this case), as Heather mentioned, no one will touch him with a ten-foot pole. So good work, Glamberts!

    Thank you for the Recap. Nice to hear that someone was converted to being a Kris fan after seeing him. I think more people would if they went to see him. Don’t fully agree with the Adam should be on Broadway only attitude but sometimes people feel their gays should be where they want them and can handle them the best way. ( I kid I kid)

    Glad you had a good time and got to be closer for you fav Kris.

    “They proceeded to inform me that MJ lost 75% of her hits because she has a Kris bias. Seems MJ is ‘unfair’, ‘moderates people’ and Kris is her favorite. Who knew?”

    • blacklisted permalink
      February 15, 2010 12:56 am

      They were serious when they made the statements that MJ lost 75% of her hits and members because she writes negative things about Adam, puts Adam fans on moderation, and is a Kris stan. What I said was that I’d also probably be placed on moderation since I’m a snarky bitch. Implication being that it wasn’t MJ being biased toward one fandom but they didn’t seem convinced.

      • TopIdol permalink
        February 15, 2010 12:58 am

        And that’s complete garbage about MJ losing 75% of her traffic. Absolute garbage. Where did they even come up with that bullshit number?

        • blacklisted permalink
          February 15, 2010 1:08 am

          I’m guessing it’s group think from Planet Fierce. They said they don’t really post on PF but they read it so I assume that there have been threads proclaiming MJ losing 75% of her traffic because of her supposed anti-Adam, pro-Kris bent.

          In fact, I remember reading on that anti-MJ thread from months ago the 75% number. Maybe the posters on that site have repeated it often enough so that now they all believe it.

            Ok just had to comment on MJ. First I don’t beleive she lost 75% of her posters. and any she lost she has gained back with new posters. Second I do have to say she tends to be a little harder on Adam fans. She seems to be more stricked with her Rules when it comes to obvious Adam posters. I have been there and defended Kris and Actually was pretty borderline of breaking some of her rules and nothing. But when I post about Adam and don’t even come close to breaking her rules she has put me in moderation. I writer her and ask why. She usually tries to come up with something then says I misunderstood you and take me out of moderation.

            I don’t believe she is a Kris Fan or Adam fan. She is a Cook fan and surprise surprise is actually a huge Taylor Hicks fans. Ok stop Laughing. Just wanted to give you my perspective on the whole MJ. view. I love her site but I am a fan of most idols so I like her site because you get news on all the idols.

              MJ’s an Adam fan. I followed her online talks with other bloggers during and after the finale.

              Plenty of Kris fans have been put on moderation. Point is she’s fair and will moderate anyone who breaks the rules regardless of who they stan. Problem is that the OTT tards assume that MJ has to kiss the fanbase’s ass to prove herself. She’ll never do that, she’s not running a fansite.

        I occasionally post at mj blog before I found this wonderful place. Over there, you have to be cordial to your fellow posters (aka the obnoxious glamberts) even though they are obviously the first ones to start the trouble everytime. You will get moderated or even banned if you call them out. So sick of this kind of censorship! And yes, she used to be an Adam fan but I guess she finally sees the “light” after seeing all the craze from the glamberts. I believe she’s more of an Allison fan now.

    Great recap. Thanks.

    There is so much irony in all of this. :). I’ll start the list, feel free to add:

    1-voting like crazy to have the concert in NY so that AdamOMGhesthenextelvis won’t be an opening act to the kidwhowon in Arkansas (he became an opening act for Allen in NY instead you geniuses),

    2-arguing that if the concert was in NY national press could be there (they weren’t. I wonder why? Maybe because no one cares? ),

    3-walking out to prove that their kid is “second to none” -tm that crazy glamspiracy theorist- (it only proved that he has batshit crazy ignorant fans).

    4- when it backfired claiming that they weren’t trying to prove anything but were late for the bus, train, metro, happy hour, senior hour etc. (then maybe you should have voted for your own fricking city rather than NY? Duh??)

    5-assuming that claiming they left the concert ’cause Allen’s music is “just not for them” will make them look smarter. (Nothing can make an idiot look smarter. That is one. Secondly, it is not like Allen is country and Lambert is rock. If you had turned the radio on just once in the last couple of decades -you know after Elvis- you would be able to tell that they are both run of the mill pop you retards.)

    LOVED the review! Especially this part:

    I then pointed out Cale who was working on setting the keyboards but was turned away from us. I told her, “that man is the most gorgeous thing in this place. YOU BETTER TAKE PICTURES OF HIM!” When he turned around and faced us, I knew the mofo had seduced my friend. She looked as dreamy as the male Kris fans and she started babbling, “oh my god, he’s GORGEOUS…OH MY GOD, who is that guy, he’s fucking HOT!”

    I legit was laughing really hard. TI, can’t wait for your review. 🙂

    Great review!

    Adam would do that thing where he tries to be sexy, which always makes me smirk b/c I know he does it for shits and giggles.

    I HOPE he’s being ironic and campy, but I’m not always so sure… The problem is his audience takes it seriously, so I’m not seeing the point then if it’s such a good thing. I guess if he finds himself abducted by a gang of sparkle cows and duct taped in the back of a Ford Econoline having his “glambulge “loved up” after a casino gig – he’ll really have to reconsider the act and persona 😀

      “she asked me for a copy. ” and this is why the have poor album sales. 🙂

        I agree with this. That was my thought: tell her to buy a copy and support the artist!

          I’m actually buying her a copy of Allison and Kris’ albums for her bday to complete the gift.
          She asked me to burn her a copy of Allison and Kris’ album (she didn’t mention Adam, only saying that she doesn’t remember what he sang, she was just focused on his performance) so I told her I would buy her Krallison’s albums for her b-day to complete the gift.

          If she mentions Adam in terms of wanting to hear his songs I’ll buy her that one too. So far she seems to only be into him visually. It’s kind of strange but maybe that’s b/c Adam is a performer so watching him is more important for some fans than the actual songs. I don’t know.

            So nice – great gift!

    The Kradison performance of “Crazy” looked like good times. Glad they (and you) had fun. (Also: CALE!)

    About the herd stampeding off before Kris’s performance: I wonder how many acts are going to want to have Adam open for them, knowing that stuff like that is going to happen, and with fans like that.

    Great recap! Do you know what happened to the Adam fans you met in line? Did they stay?

    Also, you know how much I love him, but Kris is even more talented than John Mayer.” To which I replied, “Well duh, he’s also less douchier.”

    Love it! One person at a time…

      Yeah, the ones I met on line stayed. We caught up with them after the show. Daughter glambert went to the bar during Kris’ performance and she told my friend that she wasn’t listening to him perform. Mom glambert was a really nice lady, dressed for her age and just seemed really normal. Even if she doesn’t like Kris, so what, we don’t all have to like him.

        Oh, not at all. Glad she stayed. Very normal of her.

        Love the Cale tarding. I love that his band members are each developing their own tards. They’re good, and they deserve it…as long as they keep Drew. (sorry)

        If I make it NYC this year we totally need to have coffee.It’ll probably be late summer/ fall.

    That was such a cute recap! Glad you had fun. Hasn’t Cale been dating his Katy(not Katie) for years now too? Blacklisted I wish you luck bc I agree he is hot. 🙂

      Cale needs a little salsa in his life. When he’s ready, I’ll be there 😉

    Everybody is claimed, except Drew and Chris Torres, so I claim the Latin Jesus. He’s mine, benches! LOL, seriously, they are a very hot (and talented) group of guys.

    I’m jealous! Yeah I hope this is the last time they ever do this but damn it I wish I had gone. I live in NY and I voted for the city and I still didn’t win tickets 😦

    glad you had fun! all three of them are so damn talented in their own way and i’m so happy they got to perform together again. i watched the ‘Crazy’ video and you can just tell they love each other and have fun together. i read the tweets about people leaving, which is fine; i mean, i rather they leave if they’re not interested anyway rather than look stoic in the audience 🙂 but man, they missed the awesome kradison group song!!! i could’ve used their ticket!

    Thanks for the great review, especially the part about the glamberts! I really enjoy reading about their crazy antics, really entertaining. Anyway, glad that your friend finally sees the “light” and YES, Kris Allen’s band is one of the hottest bands I’ve ever seen.

    What a great recap.

    Here, as a present, have video of Kris covering “The Scientist” at his Tampa gig last night

    A smile from Cale!!!!! Everything was worth it!!

    Soo was it as bad as the tweets made it sound? Fistfights, booing, a third of the place leaving in indignation?

    • blacklisted permalink

      I don’t know about the fistfights. We were pretty close to Adam but about a third of fans left for bathroom/bar when his set finished, which allowed my friend and I to move two feet from the stage. In fact, I was looking up Kris’ nose for part of his performance we were so close.

    blacklisted, your recap is hilarious and adorable at the same time (what Cale is to you, Andrew is to me!). Go Kris, for putting together such a talented and HOT band!

    See, I told y’all, Kris needs to be marketed as the sweet, no-N-word-saying, non-misogynist, “Anti-Mayer!” He could seriously sweep all the ex-Mayer fans off their feet!

      Agreed! I don’t get how anybody can be a John Mayer fan. He is like the biggest douche on earth and i don’t even like the songs. When Kris said he likes him, i was like what?????? maybe he just wanted on tour with him.

        Hey, I totally understand John Mayer’s music is not everyone’s cuppa, just like not everyone’s a fan of Kris or a fan of Adam. I happen to be a fan…OF THE MUSIC ONLY. Mayer the person is a dickwad I wouldn’t give the time of day to. However I wouldn’t have a problem if Kris covered any of Mayer’s songs. Kris continued to sing his version of “Heartless” even after Kanye’s antics at the VMAs and I had no problem with that (and as an aside, anybody here now going “Kanye was RIGHT, he was trying to WARN us?”).

    Awww that was a great recap. It sounds like you had so much fun! I’m glad you got to meet some normal Glamberts. The normals ones are fun to hang out with because they are crazy in a good way. I’m glad your friend’s a Kradam fan now! 😀

      Lauren, I think it’s gotten to the point that if they are normal, they cannot be defined as Glamberts anymore. Just fans. 😉
