The only hope for me is you, alive

My Chemical Romance was great live.
This was my third time seeing them, first was in Stockholm in ’06 and then at Hove festival in the summer ’07. Their stage presence and energy is pretty enviable, especially concidering the fact that they do this almost every night. Playing the same. Damn. Songs. Every. Night.
Talking of the songs. It was a good mix of old and new. Perhaps most appreciated by yours faithfully was old, but hey, who’s to say, right? BB was embarrassingly drunk even before we got in (after 2/3 of a wine and whiskey from her canteen), and managed to sell our spare ticket for 200 NOK (we bought it for 600 NOK) and scream at a couple who tried to sneak into the line in front of us. Inside she was wise enough to make up being from Nevada to an American girl behind us, and spent a good 20 minutes talking her way out of it (“I was raised in Austria, you see!”). Good times. I even had a couple of friends who were in the very front of the line (which was an extremely long line), after having slept there for what I think was two days. Impressive!
