Event: Anberlin 2014 Concert

I purchased a ticket back in July for the final Australian Anberlin tour. This was before the release of their final album. I have been a fan of Anberlin for a while (back in high school, just before Cities had been released) and with further encouragement from my sister, I decided to buy a ticket. After all, they're probably not going perform together again.

Along with Anberlin, The Getaway Plan and Breakaway were performing. While I've listened to The Getaway Plan before, I had never heard of Breakaway and they were actually pretty good. A lot of people were probably just there for Anberlin and for me, getting to see The Getaway Plan was a bonus (because I really like them too).

My ticket
It was held at the UNSW Roundhouse last week. Luckily I know my way around campus so I got in pretty early and left pretty quick. Before the performances, I managed to grab a T-shirt. It's probably the most expensive T-shirt I've ever bought but it's goddamn worth it for memorabilia.

T-shirt I bought
My "outfit" sans bag and coat.
Grey Cardigan - Forcast
T-Shirt - From Vietnam
Tank (underneath) - Wayne Cooper (bought from op shop)
Dark wash jeans - Neuw
{not shown}
Coat - Forever Ebony (boutique)
Bag - Baby the Stars Shine Bright
My Makeup
(I was testing NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, NARS Gina and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Monte Carlo. The foundation still looked good after all that sweating and water being showered onto my face)
Now, I stood very close to the stage and that was pretty much where the mosh pit was to be. Not so much of a mosh pit for the supporting acts but as soon as Anberlin were up, it became a whole lot of pushing and shoving while everyone's jumping around. It wasn't that violent and I'd say it was pretty tame compared to NYE celebrations in New York. I enjoyed the enthusiasm of those around me and overall, I had a pretty good time in the mosh pit. I also didn't mind shoving people back when the crowd shoves me one way. It's the only time I can do that without having to apologise. Will I ever participate in the mosh pit again? Maybe...

The Getaway Plan (sorry I didn't get any decent pictures)
Anberlin (I really like the different coloured lights in this one)
So the night just ended up with this:

No alcohol... just water the entire night.
