Last night we went to the Allstar Weekend concert (their Summer of Love tour opener!!!!) and it was AMAZING. As mentioned previously, we saw them for the first time back in February and were fast fans.
We made a pact to get there early to try for front row spots!!! Obama's appearance in town attempted to throw a kink in our plans, but we made it through traffic with plenty of time! Fortunately, we were second in line and quickly made friends with those around us (Allstar Weekend fans are the best!).
The After Party, Hollywood Ending, Rocky Loves Emily, and Namesake opened and did a great job! We especially loved The After Party and Hollywood Ending's acoustic set! So intimate. Love.

Finally came time for Allstar Weekend! They came out and played an awesome show!!!! Their set list was the perfect combination of old favorites and new hits. Cameron's smoldering stares and Zach's dance moves were in top form. They also sang their two newest rap songs. Prepare to be wowed.
|spoiler alert! set list!|

The song 'Bend or Break' came on. Zach singled Stripes out. He leaned over the first two rows, grabbed her hand and sang one inch from her. Dots confirmed that he glanced her way several other times during the show!
|Mad props to Dots for snapping this pic over Stripes' shoulder... Eye contact!!|
Post-show, you are treated to a VIP experience (sans VIP tickets). All of the bands mingled around in the room next to the stage, talking openly and taking pictures willingly!

But we were on the lookout for ASW, hoping they would make an appearance. Dots spotted Cameron on the other side of the merch booth and next thing we knew, we turned around and he was standing right behind us! We snapped pics with him.. only after Dots dropped items in her purse that Cameron quickly picked up for her. Melt. A little while later, Zach Porter himself came out! He was on vocal rest, so his smile did all the talking. We took pictures with him and that was an experience itself. Stripes went to stand by him and he pulled her in close, pressing his cheek to hers! Looks like those stolen glances weren't completely fabricated! Score. Anybody happen to have his number? ;)
Allstar Weekend fans... be prepared. This concert will rock your socks off!!! Are any of you seeing them tonight in Houston or another stop along their tour? We would love to hear about it and see pictures! Tweet us! :)
Have a blast!!!
