Hi everyone! Another new member here. My name is Vanessa. I'm a 23 year old college student. I'm actually from a suburb about an hour's drive east of Los Angeles. Close enough. I haven't had the chance to see them live which is a little sad because they've played here a few times over the past few years. I'm planning to see them at The Greek Theatre in May (even though I don't have tickets...yet!).
Sidenote: So, if anyone has tickets to spare, I'd be happy to buy them off of you.
I was first introduced to FOTC when I saw a teaser for their HBO show. You know the one-they're in the hallway with their guitars. But I don't have HBO, or a television for that matter so it wasn't until I was on vacation in Chicago in August 2007 (the hotel had HBO) that I got to see one of the episodes: New Fans. My sister and I had been exploring the city that day until a storm broke out early in the afternoon. We retreated back to the hotel and if it wasn't for that storm, we might have never seen the series. It was fate. Fate, I tell you! And I've been hooked ever since.
Anyways, I'm really glad I found the forum! I've been checking it out for about a month before I decided to join. It'll be a pleasure meeting all of you!
