Croc Rock, Allentown PA 1-21 !

Post  *Sarah* on Fri Jan 22, 2010 11:36 am

this show was not for everybody which is why it was never posted on their site, it was a radio station private show only and the only way in was to either win tickets from the radio station or go to one of their on site locations and be one of the 1st 100 people to get a pair. anyway, I got to the venue around 12:45 and did some scoping out and discovered it was completely empty! so my friend and I just kind of sat by the door. (there were 2 doors, the under 21 door and the over 21 door in the bar) and since my friend isn't 21 yet, we sat by the under 21 door. around... 4pm a few other ppl showed up and a friend got there but was in the bar. we went into the bar and found out we can get in with her first because she's handicapped and they were letting those people in first to keep them from getting shoved and hurt.

While we were hanging out in the bar area, Mike & Tom came through and stopped to talk to us for a little bit and since none of us had M&G passes, Tom said he'd talk to their tour mgr and see what they can do since we have always gotten special time with them but since it was radio only, emblem couldn't help us on this one. There were a few other ppl there giving us dirty looks because Tom and Mike came right to us to talk since we've known them for 2 1/2 years now and we are at so many shows! around 5:45ish, a LOT of people start showing up! Cat Country (radio station) told me that they had given out 1300 tickets! around 6:50 they brought us in and i was in front of the stage next to Tom & Mike! (normally i'm right in front of Chey because that has been my spot since 2006 haha) but oh well, it was still a front row spot so i shouldn't complain! the opening band came on, and i'm sorry to all you country fans, which is a majority of you here (i'm a nyc girl!) i was bored! I already forget their name.. . I'm far from a country girl so don't get mad haha. They were on from about 7:40-8:15.

Gloriana came on at about 8:50 til about 9:35ish and they didn't have Trey & Zack because it was a short acoustic set. they only sang about 7 songs. how far do you wanna go, lead me on, change your mind, time to let me go, you said, wild at heart.. and encored with amie! it was short but sweet because they talked a LOT! they talked about how winning the AMA brings up their social status haha. and now Rachel isn't just Rachel Reinert from Gloriana.. she's AMA winner Rachel Reinert from Gloriana! The finale of Jersey Shore was on last night so Rach and Chey were talking about how addicted to that show they are and about The Situation & Vinny.. and started fist pumping! Chey said she couldn't fist pump well so kind of made a joke about it (i have a picture of that!) They also talked about how 2009 was such a great year for them and thanked all the fans who come out to see them at shows. when they first started performing as a band in Nashville, they played cafe's like that and Chey said maybe a handful of people would go and now they're seeing so many people at their shows!

after the show they did their M&G with the winners and we went next door into the attached pizza place. (basically this place was a bar on the left, pizza place on the right, and the concert venue was down the hall) the 6 of us sat in there since everybody who plays there takes pizza pictures, and we knew Gloriana would too. At around 10:15ish they came through the pizza place to take a few pictures with the owner of the place posing with their pizza haha. HILARIOUS moment right there. we were the only ones waiting for them, and then a mob of ppl came in to see them take those pictures! Tom ate his whole slice before they were even done, so Rachel started feeding him & then decided to give me the greasy plate (thanks Rach! haha) after they took their pictures and the rest of the mob cleared out and Rach was snapped out of being glued to Jersey Shore on the tv behind her, Tom asked his tour mgr if they could have a few minutes with the 6 of us and he said sure! but of course random people from the bar decided to show up and it turned into a big rushed moment. Mike and Rach played ping pong and they were actually really good!! after the random people started leaving we had our time, it ended up being short because of the distractions but it was still nice! they thanked us for being so supportive and coming to see them so much. they love how dedicated we are and that they love us!

the end Very Happy

pictures are uploading now so when they are done Lauren will have them to post!

again, i'm soooo glad it all worked out for you. i know how stressed you were haha

love the stories! sounds like it went amazing and from the videos i've seen online the band was suuuper personable and i love when bands are like that. it makes it more enjoyable when they acknowledge the crowd being there. i wish i could have seen it, ngl, i miss hearing them acoustic!

can't wait to see your pics, they're always great Smile

funny because I missed Trey! he's my hubby.. so he says! because i have the same birthday as his mom, so it's destined we are to get married! lol. i left out the part where we almost didn't get in, and if we were getting in, it'd be in the back.. so it was VERY stressful! i was furious at one point because CAT Country didn't know what was going on.. and Croc Rock staff didn't know what CAT Country was doing. so we were going back and forth for a good hour and a half, but it definitely all worked out & i'm glad too! haha
