Every time Death Cab came to play in Texas, it wasn't near my hometown and it was always on a weird day like Tuesday or Wednesday. Fast forward ~5 years later, my teenage dream finally comes true and it really felt like a dream. Telekinesis was their opener:
-"Photobooth" took me by surprise. Before the show, I searched set list so I could get an idea but I didn't see this one. It was a nice surprise; the teenager in me who crushed on Seth Cohen's love for Death Cab started to come out during this song. I sang it as if I was serenading Chris Walla.
- "We Look Like Giants" was heavy on the instruments and that made me a happy girl. I love when you're completely encompassed with music where your thoughts intertwine with the guitar or drums or keys. Visually, I felt like I was seizing and I didn't hate it.
-After 1 minute of cheering and chanting, Death Cab played an encore and then ended with "Transatlanticism". A hauntingly beautiful song. My favorite album and one of my favorite songs. You could hear Chris's distinct guitar.
All in all, worth the wait. (Also, I realized Ben Gibbard is TALL.)
Until next time Chris, Ben, Nick, and Jason.
