You tried so hard to be someone, that you forgot who you are

Sunday, I went to see JET at Spaceland! They became one of my favorite bands ever since I saw them live at the House of Blues two years ago. One of the best live bands. No gimmicks, just pure rock and roll, but so energetic and fun! I saw them twice a few months ago (Fonda and Kimmel). I wondered when I would be able to see them again. God must've heard my prayers, because they came to play at Spaceland! I thought it would be just another great JET show, but, boy, was I wrong. It was beyond amazing, and I'll never forget that night. They sang songs they normally don't sing. They brought along secret surprise guests: Slash, Chris Robinson, and Steve Jones! As soon as Chris R took the stage, they started with "Eleanor" (love that one) and then they transitioned into "Be My Baby". I freaked out. That is one of my all time favorite songs growing up. I literally freaked out when he sang the first line. Needless to say, definitely one unforgettable night.
