We are finally back in the USA after being over seas for about a month. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I took a ton of photos. Soooo I am going to break up all the photos in a few seperate blogs for ya. Heres the first from Jakarta, Indonesia. We were over there for about three days and I have to say that it was the most amazing moment of my life. We played to 4000 people with our good friends in Hey Monday and our new friends in The Downtown Fiction. We have some really amazing fans over in Jakarta. Everyone of you that came to the show blew our minds with how loud you sang and how genuinely nice and welcoming you were to us. We will definitely be back. So here's some pics!
The journey started off with a series of flights that totaled about 22 hours. Even more for me and Justin cause we had to fly from the west coast first. It really wasn't that bad though. We watched a lot of movies, enjoyed the complimentary beverages and food, and slept. A lot. Heres Andrew singing in his sleep. He's a talented dude.
We were lucky enough to be able to stay at the Ritz Carlton in Jakarta. It was the nicest hotel that I have ever stayed at and we each got our own rooms. We all got laid when we arrived too! I mean Lei-d. I'm immature.
We enjoyed some authentic Indonesian cuisine the first night with some fans that won a contest to dine with us. I think we were the winners though, the food was amazing. I don't think Nick looks too stoked on all the fish though.
We all enjoyed some pool and cabana time before the show on Saturday. Andrew and I played some water basketball while the ladies stayed dry and relaxed in the cabana.
This is our main girl Cheche. She basically was our host while we were there. She helped us with everything and she ruled, a lot. We miss her lots.
The Downtown Fiction.
After The Downtown Fiction and Hey Monday killed it, we took the stage. It is and probably will be my favorite show we have ever played for a long time. I still get chills thinking about it. We had the time of our lives playing for all of you beautiful Indonesians, and we will be back as soon as possible.
Aku Cinta Jakarta!
Thanks again Jakarta for the time of my life! We'll be back!
