Well I Hope That You're Happy...

OK, say what you will, but I love the All American Rejects. They're very catchy and it's my blog so I can post whatever I want. I also admit to having a teenage girl crush on Tyson Ritter. Anyways, I caught their show in London on Thursday night with opening acts Damone from Boston (Noelle on lead vocals sure can scream) and the surprisingly good semi-local alt-rockers illScarlett from Missasauga. Despite a few unexplainable 14-year-olds in need of Ritalin, there was good energy all the way through, although I would have liked the sets to be longer. But I got Tyson to sign my CD, so all was worth it.

P.S. I lament the recent remaks by one lyrical genius, the recently married Rivers Cuomo proclaiming that as of now, one of my favourite bands, Weezer, is "done." However, we all recall the band's last hiatus follwing the end of the Pinkerton tour in 1997 and lasting until the release of the Green Album in 2001. So fear not people, all hope is not lost, if there is any justice.
