An alternate shot and the same pic as the promotional one (minus the text) have both probably already been found, but I haven’t seen them in the tags, so here you go.
As I’m sure you’re all aware, The Aquabats are celebrating their 20th anniversary next year! I’d love to show the band how much they have meant to me and all of the other fans out there, so I’m making this post to gather interest in a project that I have in the works!
I’m hoping to put together an anthology to give to the guys as a gift at Summit next year! It’ll be a printed collection of stories (personal accounts and what the band has meant to you, not fanfiction), photos, fanart, etc and well wishes from all fans that want to participate!
Specific details will be laid out in a post that will be coming later, but until then I’m just trying to gauge interest in the project.
Would you participate? Like this post if you think this is a good idea, and reblog if you would be interested in contributing/submitting something to the book!
PS: If you are in contact with The Bats themselves, please do not tell them about this project! If possible, I’d like to keep it a surprise for them!
The Wild Sea! By The Aquabats! By me!
Someone do 8-bit covers of everything. I love this.
A snippet of “Martian Girl!” from the 2013 Aquabats SDCC concert!
It was so freakin’ awesome to see this song live, as it was one of (if not the) first Aquabats songs that I ever heard, and definitely one of the ones that sold me on the band! That was so long ago… I never thought I would be in the audience throwing up hand signs to it!
I attempted to film the beginning of the show… but as I mentioned in my post about the event you can tell exactly when the crowd pushed forward and I couldn’t hold the camera (or my footing) anymore.
Anyway, here’s the very very beginning of “Fashion Zombies!” when the guys first came out during the 2013 SDCC show! Just watching this video makes me feel those same emotions that I felt while witnessing it all live. It’s like I’m holding my breath all over again… so much anticipation! Waiting for it took forever. Then they come out and wow. Just wow!!! I can’t describe the feeling, but I’m sure many of you felt that way at your first show. Just to see your heroes run out and start doing their thing while you’re surrounded by your friends… knowing that you’re about to have one of the sickest experiences of your life… I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
*smushy gushy feeeellllls*
Whoa whoa whoa whoa, what? Is this actually the post that you’ve
forgotten that you’ve been waiting for? IT ISSSS! Lol woops let’s just ignore the fact that this concert happened in July and it’s taken me until now to finish writing my post about it (which I also started in July… HURRR…)
About time I posted this write-up, huh?! Alright Homies, here it is… My first Aquabats show experience! The SDCC House of Blues show, 7/18/13!
((THIS IS RLY LONG. I AM SO SORRY. If you don’t read it I’m not gonna fault you at all. I promise. It’s mostly for me and journal-like purposes!)) But for real, I thought about shortening it, but then I was like “lol nope” because whatever man it’s my blog and I can ramble till the cows come home if I wanna!
