a few days later, i found out that MTX would be back in about a month and a half. (they would be the headliners this time, though.) then i found out that frank had an e-mail address. i knew i wanted to write...but i didn't want to just write a lame fan letter. it had to be cool. i thought and i thought, and then i realized: i could interview them for my zine! i wrote to frank requesting an interview. he replied promptly, and said that that would be cool, and he'd see me at the show.
so, the month passed quickly, and i made sure that my bestest bud and fellow MTX-obsesser ali would be visiting me at that time.
the day of the concert, we were so incredibly nervous the whole day. we
were very afraid of sounding dumb. and i figured i'd just die when i
met joel. or puke. or something equally bad. (i needn't have worried,
MTX are the nicest guys on the planet! they're sooo sweet.)
we went to the concert that night, and i was on the guest list. i
thought that was pretty darn cool. then we got into the room, wandered
around for a bit, and then noticed frank talking to some people. so we
went and introduced ourselves, and frank said we could start the
interview once he found joel and jym. he couldn't find the "elusive
jym," but after joel came back from getting food, we all went into the
little room where the bands hang out, and started the interview. it was
a lot of fun, and my zine (geek u.s.a.) should be done very soon, so
e-mail me about it.
then we got photos of frank and joel, and us with frank and joel.
all the bands put on a great show that night, especially MTX. after the show, we said "hey" to the guys again, and got frank, joel, and jym to sign stuff we had bought there that night. when i got home later and read what they had written, i just about died. joel wrote: "you're a real doll! xoxo, joel." (which, of course, made me even MORE in love with him...hehe.)
it was definitely one of the coolest nights of my life. i should have
the photos scanned soon...
