Ok so yesterday, me, bporr, cj_guns, and my frand from college decided to take a fun trip to new york city to see Crystal Castles.
We got into the city via train and went to the Shake Shack for some burgers before the show, we saw a explorer there, but I digress, after finishing our food we made our way on foot to Terminal 5, got inside, and waited in line for the show. Eventually we got in, we were about 4 people away from the stage, dead center. At 9pm two DJs started to play, as he played the crowd started to pick up and dance more and more. After about 8 songs bporr leaned over and asked me if this was a sound check I gave him a :damnit:. Also there was this really hot girl in front of me, eventually she pointed at me and I looked at her, then she proceeded to give me a sexy "im watching you" sign. Then she signaled me to come up to where she was but there was too many people so I was like :rage: oh well. After the first DJ played for a hour straight the next DJ played for another hour, the crowd got wilder and wilder, until shit got really crazy one side would push another side then that side would push back, it was getting intense, eventually like 10 of us fell down in a big spot, but my boy CJ_GUNS picked me up quickly like a true bro would do. It was like 90 degrees, we had been dancing/trying to hold our ground/jumping for 2 hours straight in a densely packed sweaty mess of a crowd, thats when the third DJ got on and shit got even realer. Bporr was back a bit next to old people so he was fine, but me, guns, and my friend were in a spartan triangle trying to hold our ground, the crowd was literally converging on us from every angle and we had to fight back. At one point cjguns and my friend did a spartan push and shoved these two guys like a mile.
But alas nothing we tried was enough, we could keep holding them off, but for how long? We had already been dancing in this 90 degree hell hole for 2 and a half hours straight (there was no pauses between sets), could we really keep this up for a little more than another hour without dieing of exhaustion/dehydration? We decided to tactically fall back to a less crazy part of the crowd (although it was still kinda rough). Near the end of the third set (about 3 hours and a half into the show) me and my friend from college decided to move up slowly to get our spots back, we slowly moved back towards the center middle of the stage and lost bporr and cjguns. Then finally, we had a break, they needed to set up crystal castle's instruments and what not. Surely the crowd would calm down until they got on right? Nope. The pushing got worse and worse. Then this black 30 year old hipster guy who was really drunk tried to fight us. He kept leaning all his weight on us and we would push him off and he would get mad that we were pushing him and yeah, he was retarded but my friend (also black, and bigger than him) pretty much confronted him and the guy backed down and resorted to passive agressive bullshit talking to this friend, I figured id just kill that guy when Crystal Castles started, I did.
When they started to play the crowd pretty much went berserk. I went berserk too. I pretty much GUNSED that hipster guy into the crowd somewhere and never saw him again. I was actually kind of scared of the crowd at this point, then someone steped on the back of my shoe causing my foot to fall half out. I tried to get bporr to lift the back of my shoe back up but he didnt understand and lifted the back of my shirt up instead :lolface:. I got out of the crowd and fixed my shoe, got some water from the bar, and found cjguns. We then moved up and enjoyed the rest from a safe distance.
Also, I must add that Alice Glass is the craziest most badass person in the world. She probably crowd surfed 12 times, one time this girl who was also surfing grabbed her face and kissed her, then Alice beat the girl's face in and went on singing. At another point she was being held up by the crowd she was just smoking everyones cigarettes and blunts while having seizures(not literally).
Eventually the concert ended, but our night was far from over. We walked outside of Terminal 5 and purchased some 1/1.5L water bottles. The concert had started at 9. It was now 2am. We walked a ways and then got a taxi to Grand Central Station. Then things went bad. The train station was now closed. This means that we would have to stay on the streets of New York City till 6:20am, the next train to our town.
:rage: :rage: :rage: :rage: :rage: :rage: :rage: :rage:
We then decided we should find an open McDonalds and hang out there till morning. We walked to Times Square and people kept commenting on our shirts we had draped over our shoulders that we had bought at the concert. One guy said we were wearing turbans and we were like lawlwut. Finally we found the McDonalds we were looking for, it was full of drunk people, and yet, awesome, we got some food and went up to the second floor and sat down. Right Next to us (about 10 feet) were a big group of black people. These guys were rediculous, but hilarious. They were so loud, im suprised they didn't get kicked out. They kept singing and dancing and shit. The best way I can describe them is if you watch the boondocks, they were like ThuGnificent, but there was 10 of them.
"Yo nigga your the most nigga of all of us, niggas straight from Nigeria, ey yo do that nigerian dance nigga" - one of the black guys talking to another
Shit got even better when these two white cali skateboard brahs walked up to them and was like YO YOU WANNA HAVE A DANCE OFF?
So here we are, its 4am, in New York City, in the second floor of a McDonalds, two drunk white guys are having a dance off against these drunk black guys. It was pretty funny, the black guys were actually pretty funny and chill (although very loud), we missed them when they left McDonalds. Eventually McDonalds closed the top part and there was no where to sit so we sat in the middle of Time Square at 4:30am till it was time to go back to Grand Central.

bporr sleeping on the train :troll: :troll: :troll: (he told me if i took a picture he would kill me)
As we sat on the train, almost home, next to a dog in a cage that was just making demon sounds, we simply laughed and said "I ain't even mad."
Concert Jungle, Wet Dreams of Nato, Theres Nothing You Can't Do.
TL;DR: Crazy Concert, Got Raped By Crowd, Missed Train, Had to stay in NYC all night, Went to McDonalds and chilled with some niggas, Went home.
