I cannot even begin to tell you how much of a fan I am of DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL.“Hands Down” is probably one of my top 5 favourite songs. “Vindicated” isn’t that far off either. Pretty sure in the early 2000’s, if you were into emo music, then chances are DC was probably at the top of your list along with Sugarcult, Something Corporate, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, The All-American Rejects, American Hi-Fi, Green Day, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, etc.
I never thought I would have a chance to see them live let alone taking photos of them performing! It was a dream come true! I did almost ugly cry during the last 3 songs as two of them were of course, “Vindicated” and “Hands Down”.
From the first song “Don’t Wait” to “Heart Beat Here” — my teenaged-self was in emo heaven!
I put together a short video of a bunch of clips I shot during the show to their song “We Fight” off their latest album “Crooked Shadows” — watch the full official video here.
