Topic: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Well, the POLYSICS shows in DC on Feb. 16th is coming very soon, and as you can imagine, I'm completely giddy with anticipation! It's the last stop on the tour, and appears to be the last show before Budokan, and of course it's an extra huge deal since Kayo's leaving the band.

I declared that I would attend this show, come hell or high water, and I'm not backing down despite the lousy weather that's hampered DC for the last couple of weeks.

As you may know, there were reports of up to 36 inches (about 91 cent.) of snow around DC last weekend. And there may be up to 20 more inches tomorrow. That's enough snow to still be a burden come the 16th. If you're coming to this show (and I really hope you are), you should definitely check to see if the trains and mass transit are running normally . They were closed today from what I heard.

If there is yet more snow, I'm certain that it's very unlikely that the show will be canceled, so don't be scared off. The band has been touring for years in a variety of conditions, and the venue they're playing at (The Rock n' Roll Hotel) has already declared that nothing will shut them down. But to be safe, here's the twitter account to check up on the club:

Also, the Rock n' Roll Hotel is not a hotel, so you can't sleep there! I'm going to keep some extra money ready in case I have to spend the night in DC though.

On a extra positive note, the show is going to ROCK! The club lists a capacity of only 400 people, and I'd love it if that crowd was nothing but total POLYSICS fans.

And I'll be there for sure. I have a shaved head, a goatee and wear glasses.  Keep saying hello to anyone who looks like that and sooner or later it'll be me. smile

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Uh oh, I hope trains wouldn't be too badly affected when the time comes, 'cause that may be my ticket up there. I know it's bad, but I still haven't asked my parents if I can go.... if it wasn't on a school day (I'd be missing three out of my four classes and I'd prolly be late for my fourth) then I would have asked already. Ugh, this sucks D: I'll try working up the courage to ask tomorrow, though!! Root for me!!

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

I'll look out for you dude! Also I'll be with a girl with pink hair. I don't know how many of them there are in the USA... maybe lots.
I hope you go Carrie, it would be cool to meet you. Just ask your parents, do it! big_smile

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Well, I asked my dad today and he says I MAY get to go IF the snow isn't too bad. So Mark, and anyone else in the DC area, please keep me posted on weather!!! (tweet me if need be)  We looked at hotels and trains so I think things are hopeful as long as the weather doesn't reeeallly suck, haha.

And don't worry, if I go, I WILL TAKE LOADS OF PICTURES AND VIDEO AND I WILL SHOUT ALOUD SCREEEEEEEEEEAM AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS WHOOP CAPS LOCK

*takes a deep breath*

Please let the DC thaw out, please let DC thaw out, please let DC thaw out.......

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

ooooh, if you are able to get in front of the stage (what am I saying, a true polysics fan always gets to the front xD) get a sign that says something among the lines of: Please film the crowd and show it to hiro together with your camera big_smile
How awesome would it be if he actually did that xD

And while you're at it, try to get some footage from after the show, there is hardly any footage of polysics signing stuff after the show on youtube

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Of course I'm gonna try to get at the front! I'll try to camp out in front of Fumi and drool all night, haha.

So a crowd video? That would be pretty rad! I would make a sign to hold during the show, but I know it'll be awkward for me to clap/fistpump/wave while holding my camera too, lol. I need to be an octopus.....!

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

i've read a comment on youtube somewhere from one of their current shows in america. Some guy was complaining about a guy (dressed in full polysics attire) and his friends standing in front of the stage playing monopoly on a cellphone the entire time while the other bands opening for polysics were playing.
It might be a bit rude and respectless, but I know I would do just the same stuff xD
camp out in front of the stage for polysics and not care about the other bands big_smile

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Ahaha, when I went to their 2008 NC show, we caught the first act (Sonic Death Rabbit, really awesome synth girl who did a very interesting and fun show) but then waited out in the bar area for the most part during the other acts. It was more fun that way, since we were able to run into Hiro, Yano and Kayo before the show and just kinda goofed off. But when that act right before Polysics started dying down, we made a bee line for the stage!! I got about the second row riiiiight in front of Hiro. I'll never forget him lookin' at me during Peach Pie on the Beach :333 or me stepping on someone's toes during I My Me Mine, aha. I think most of this stuff I mentioned in my review of that show here on the forums (right here, in case you haven't seen it)

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Something I'm wondering about these shows. How is the crowd like? I heard from friends who saw their last concerts in Belgium that there were people who started a moshpit and one of the girls getting hit in the head by one of those guys. I'm not into that shit to begin with, and I don't find it fitting with polysics. Does this happen at other shows too, or is this more uncommon at polysics.

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Well, I'm not exactly sure. I've only been to one concert, but I don't think it was too bad at that one (the memories are fuzzy a bit, haha). I remember a guy spaz-dancing a bit, and right next to him was a guy who stood there like a pole. There weren't a huge amount of people there, though, maybe a bit less than fifty? I guess it would depend on where you are and how many people there are....

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

less than 50  yikes that would be so cool to see polysics in such a small crowd instead of beeing squished in a room with too much people xD

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Yeeeeaah it was really cool!!! It felt very personal (like the Peach Pie thing) and it was easy to snag a good place to see them.

I wish I remembered meeting Kayo better.... I think the only thing I noticed was that she was adorable and left handed. Hiro did that little drool line comin' from his pictures' mouth and proudly wrote TOISU on my poster, and then Yano took my marker. Ah, good memories.....!

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

yeah I'm so jealous of your poster xD
I want my own autographs of polysics sad

NatsuBamBam | Polysics information and community

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

I hope you get it then sometime!!!! I hope to see them again (pleaseletmegotoDComfg) because when I saw them and got their autographs then, I wasn't a Polysics fan, so I just grabbed their autographs for the heck of it and didn't talk or anything. Now I wish I knew better!!! ; ^;

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

I've already got my ticket and even a plane ticket home, but I was driving up with friends this weekend from Atlanta and given the current conditions they're iffy on going anymore. Fingers crossed the roads are looking better by Friday!
If not, I may just have to bite the bullet and take a last minute bus up, even if I can barely afford it.
There's no way I can miss this show. mad

If I do make it, I'll surely be wearing my National P hoodie. I'm willing to break the "no band shirts at their shows" rule for it wink

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Yeah, I hope roads will look better too. My dad showed me a few webcam live feeds of DC and even the street where the concert place will be is covered in thick snow and there isn't much traffic. I hope the trains won't be delayed or anything....

Hmmm, I believe I'll be wearing orange pants and a Moog Is Love shirt. But the shirt will prolly change once I buy a new shirt from them, haha. I could go by a rule of not wearing band tshirts at their concerts XDDDD (though I've never been to a concert other than Polysics, haha) So, orange jeans, brightly colored Polyinspired nails.

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

I'm in Ohio and people seem to be surprised at the amount of snow here. We're driving over to DC the day before the concert, 6 hour road trip, so I guess we'll see what happens hmm

I'm getting my badges done for the jumpsuit today so I'll be in full costume for the Akron show tomorrow, hopefully the badges will survive big_smile

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Woodoggy, my trip is on. I was seriously worried there last night!
I made a visor to go along with my hoodie for bootleg cosplay, back in September, but it's too unsafe to wear in an extreme environment yikes Also, it would totally break on the plane anyway.
I really should have gotten better pictures, rather than just photobombing all the time as usual.

or the usual candid shots...

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

OH WOW what are those made out of?! That is so cool!!

That reminds me that I may wear my modified Stupidiotic glasses a bit..... even though I look silly, haha.

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

Layered metal screen (from a huge roll I got at Value Village for like a buck), metal pipe hanger, double sided tape and electrical tape. Whole thing cost a few bucks! The edges are harsh though since it's screen, and hence not too safe.

Had I gotten better pictures I would have probably posted about it, haha.

Re: Washington DC, Feb. 16, 2010!!!

That is really neat!! I should try something similar, because I'd love some of their NatP glasses!
