the AAR/Shiny Toy Guns show last night was absolutely amazing. I knew that I missed my weekly concerts, but this week reminded me just how much. I haven’t been able to stop listening to AAR since last night & I fell back in love with Shiny Toy Guns. ♥
But before the show started I got to interview Nick Wheeler, the guitarist for AAR. I was a bit nervous because although I haven’t been a die-hard AAR fan I’ve been listening to them and following their career since high school. I didn’t know who he was personally in the band before interviewing him, but I absolutely fell in love with the guy by the end of it. He was SO cute & friendly… by far my favorite interview to date (well I haven’t done that many… but it’s definitely been the most awesome experience). It’s not every day that you get to sit down for 20 minutes and talk to someone who makes music that you adore and compliment them about it too. To be honest, I’m so shy it’s very rare that I get the courage to go around telling bands how amazing they are live… But it just kept coming up in the interview and he was so flattered… it was absolutely adorable. After being in a band this long and he still takes compliments that well. It was great.

When AAR came on I was really impressed. The last time I saw them was in… 2006? I forgot what an amazing show they put on. Well, besides the fact that Tyson Ritter was drunk/high on something… he still sang his heart out & he sounds fantastic live. And I won’t lie, it was pretty awesome to see Nick rocking out on stage with girls yelling how much they love him.
Tyson Ritter & his creepy new look… Atleast he still sounds amazing!
