The Resignation Tour 2013
Rx Bandits is hands down my favorite band. In 2011 they went on hiatus after a farewell tour and I was devastated, so when I found out that they were going to go on tour to mark the 10 year anniversary of their album The Resignation I freaked out. Seriously, I was mid-conversation with Estrella when I saw the tweet and I started shrieking. Not only are they my favorite band, but The Resignation is my favorite album. And they were playing at the Glass House, which is my favorite venue! It was a perfect storm of all my favorite things! I had already missed out on the pre-sale by the time I heard about the tour, but I was not about to miss out on tickets altogether so I bought them the minute they went on sale.
Me and Lena headed out early to avoid the traffic; getting to Pomona like 3 hours in advance gave us time to find stress-free parking and enjoy some pho. The show itself was AMAZING. They played all of The Resignation, and for the encore they played some of my favorite songs off of And The Battle Begun. I had managed to make my way pretty close to the front when the guy in front of me turned around and motioned for me to take his place in front of the barricade. Major thanks to that guy for looking out! After that I got to enjoy the show without getting pushed around and I had the most amazing view.
After the show ended I didn't want to leave! Since I don't know when they'll play again and in 2011 I seriously thought that was the last time I'd ever see them this show felt like a gift. It was such a great show, as always, and I can only hope I get to see them play again.
