Leelin's UHH Experience!!


Ok first and foremost let me just say..Speedy please find some way to post this on your blog because I have no clue how. Thanks:)..Alright well let me tell you all about this amazing time that I had while seeing the girls perform in Philly tonight...First of all it amazes me b/c I finally decided at the last minute to go. I live in Baltimore so I still wasn't sure if I was gonna go or not..But man am I glad that I did . I left home around 4:45pm to make the drive, it was pouring down raining so it was very difficult for me to see. But I definitely found my way. I got to the place a little after 7( the show started at 9) and I met two incredibly cool girls that I really bonded with (hey Tara and Megan:) well we all waited outside until about 8:15 and then we were finally able to come in. We were some of the first girls in line so when we walked in we were right in front(OMG!!!!!!) I was soooo excited about that and I stood on Leisha's side of the stage so I was literally right in front of her. Ok so there was an opening act named The Fashion and at first we were pretty bummed b/c we wanted to see the girls A.S.A.P. So, The Fashion came on @ a little after 9 and they played about 6 or 7 songs and to my surprise I actually really liked them. Alright so after they were done, we of course had to wait for them to break their stuff down so that the people can set the girls stuff up. So we waited for a little while. Ok so finally around 10:30 the girls came on and let me tell ya'll ..I was sooooo fucking excited I swear, in fact I think that I was overly excited or something..lol..So their goes Leisha literally 5 feet away from me..I mean I'm looking directly at this woman..She had on the cutest little hat with this brown long top on, some leggings and some what looked like converse shoes(She looked sooo freaking cute)..Cam was on the other side of her of course but they were actually a little closer together this time and let me tell ya'll CAM LOOKED SOOO HOT!!!..She had on the tight skirt with this fancy looking tank top, her hair was in a ponytail and she had on these fishnet stockings and some high heals. Well anyway, I was literally the loudest one out of everybody..lol..I mean hey, I came there to have a good time and everyone else around me was all stiff just standing there taking pics(which by the way the security didn't search us at all for camera's) I mean I was singing every song and Josh the drummer was laughing at me. Leisha looked at me and gave me the biggest, brightest smile that I have ever seen(She did this 3 different times actually:) Cam even noticed me too and smiled at me. After the show we all waited in line to get our Merch signed..I had brought my cd from home and they were only letting people who had a gold wrist band get autographs(you had to purchase some stuff in order to get that) but one of the girls went up and told one of the guys that I already had my cd so they gave me a wrist band anyway(YAY!!!) So me Tara, and Megan waited in the back of the line(I took your advice Speedy:) and finally when it was my turn to get an autograph..I literally had no clue what to say..lol..Cam signed it first and I just said "I fucking love you guys"..lol and she said "Aww thanks I really appreciate that"..Leisha signed it next and before I can even say anything to her she said "You were so cute out there" and Cam said "Yes you were" Leisha said "I really love how you were just dancing and having a blast"..I said "Oh of course, you guys were amazing and the audience were duds, I was in the front row so I had to show ya'll some love"..They both laughed and Leisha said thanks again, "You really brought a lot of life into it"..I said "I love you both"..They both said "Thanks"...I'm telling ya'll I literally could have died right there..lol..Ok so here's when you think it all ends...Oh but it doesn't.....So Tara, Megan and I are all outside just waiting around to get another glimse of the girls...Ok I have to tell ya'll this quick thing that happened..This drunk lady comes up to me and says "Hey sexy lady, do you have a dollar that you can spare"..I said "No i'm sorry I don't have any change on me" then she says "Do you wanna have sex"..I politely said "Ummm no I don't"..She says "Your a lesbian, right?" I say "No actually I'm not" and then she says "Yes you are" and I said "Lady if you want me to be a lesbian then I am, and these are my two girlfriends right here"( I pointed to Tara and Megan and they just laughed at me) so finally after about 10 mins she left....Now back to the girls...Finally the girls came out and some chick who's walking into the opposite direction bumps into Cam..I said to her "Did that chick just bump into you and she laughed cause of the serious look on my face and she said "It's cool"...Then her and Leisha got on the bus..(oh we had offered to buy them beers at the bar next door if they wanted it) so we waited inside the bar to see if they would come in..and to our surprise THEY DID!!!!!..So i'm literally standing right beside Leisha Hailey and Camila Grey at the bar..Cam then said she wanted to go some place that had music (The Phillies game was on) so then we all started walking out and I said to Leisha "I have no clue where we're going b/c I 'm not from here, I came from Maryland" ...and she said "No way, you drove all the way down here, how far was it, I said "well about 2 and a half hours since it was raining so bad, but I would do it in a heartbeat for you"..She smiled and said "Aww thanks" so by this time we all (including the girls) were standing outside waiting around a little and then Cam comes out of nowhere with this bicycle..lol and was literally riding around a little...(I kid you not)..so then I realized that I hadn't taken a pic with any of the girls yet so I said "Leisha can I take a pic with you", she goes "Sure no problem" so Tara gets my camera and takes a pic..Cam comes past us still on that bike..lol..so then a bunch of these girls come out of nowhere as we were about to go to this bar and they were all like "Cool let's go" (I mean WHAT THE HELL!!!) so the girls kinda huddled with each other for a minute and then Leisha says "Guys actually we're going to call it a night and head back on the bus" ...We told here that we completely understand..and I said "Well I'm going to head back on the road to" and she says "Yeah please get home safe"...I said "Thanks, ya'll stay safe as well"...They both say "Thanks" to us and then they walk back to their bus. We then walk back into the original bar and wait around until they finally pull off( I guess we thought that they would change their minds) but the bus took off....I said my goodbyes to the girls and we exchaged numbers and myspace addresses....and I got in my car and left....I'm telling ya'll this has been the greatest night of my life..I can't believe that I actually had a little conversation with Leisha Hailey and Camila Grey let alone hang out with them even if it was just for a little while..they are both sooo down to earth especially Leisha...I still can't believe it...Ok well i'm gonna try to get some sleep..I'll post the pics tomorrow as soon as I get them developed...

LMAO@ THE DRUNK LADY WANTING TO SLEEP WITH YOU...OMG..LOLOL. That was HILARIOUS!! That is such a great story...AND THE GIRLS EVEN HUNG OUT WITH YOU IN THE BAR??!!! WHAT ROCK BAND DOES THAT..LOLOL. Leelin thanks for sharing such a great experience with the girls...but it ain't over--we got plenty more bloggers attending the UHH concerts. I can't wait to hear all the stories...you guys are awesome..:)

shannon said...

another awesome story! you know, even though i really want this band to be as successful as possible, it's this kind of thing that makes me (selfishly) wish they would stay kind of underground; if they were hugely popular, playing stadiums, they probably wouldn't be doing signings or hanging at the bar with fans after the show. I just love how open they are to meeting the people who love what they're doing. (of course i do want them to be really successful...they certainly deserve it!)

H.E.R said...

so another tale of being last in line, huh? i guess it really does work!

Freaky Rory said...

my my...

such a lucky lady!, i think that if that had happened to me i would've dropped dead from a heart attack, but left this world happily...

I wish I could meet them someday, but i would have to cross an entire continent to do it, so that's highly unlikely to happen...

i love this blog, i've been checking it out since months ago, don't know why i never posted bfore

keep it up!;)

speedy12 said...

Freaky--thank you for posting--don't be a stranger--I would love to have you as a regular..:)

Fleur said...

Leelin, what a great story! I really love it how down to earth the girls are and that they actually take the time to do the signing sessions and meet their fans. I would love to go to London to go to their concert, unfortunately I don't have any days left from work...
Anyway I'm happy for you too Leelin!

Nikis said...

This is really awesome ladies! Thank you for sharing your experiences. It is almost like a On the Road with UHH: Fan edition! It would be great if the girls did check out the blog. I think they would love to know how much support there is...that everyone is truly enjoying the concerts and relishing the opportunity to meet them!

LeeLin said...

Chi-City said...

Amazing. I'm re-reading Leelin's story like...did this seriously happen. Indeed it did and that's cool how the events of the night transpired until some random ppl abruptly ended that surreal encounter. Thanks for sharing such an awesome story. Big Up's to the band for chillin with the fans. They've just gained extra brownie points for that;)

Damn now how are the rest of our stories going to compare to these first three. Good Lawd!

Anne Riddle said...

ROFL I am still alughing at the drunk woman. XD

Thanks for your report

~nitabe~ said...

lol chi-city, that's my exact worry! i hope that my uhh concert experience will be even a tad close to the first three!! :)

LeeLin said...

Lol...Thanks Chi..trust me, I'm still in shock right now..I truly can't believe it happened either, but it did..lol..and Anne,that lady was crazy as hell I swear, she had a bunch of teeth missing too and she just kept on smiling at me..lol..Thanks again for the love guys!!!

speedy12 said...

A bunch of teeth missing..and she still kept smilin'...lmao!!! HILARIOUS!!!LOLOL

LeeLin said...

Lol Speedy..I put that on everything..but hey she was drunk, so she could care less...lol

Chi-City said...

LOL the missing teeth adds character;)to the story. Yuck mouth was tryin' to holla that night and she had Leelin in her sights! LMAO
Keeping my fingers crossed hoping she makes her way to the LA show that way I could take a pic with her and have THAT as my UHH experience.

Tickets to the show: $20
Parking: $15
Drinks: $12 ea
Getting hit on by the druken lady w/ the missing teeth at the end of the show: PRICELESS

Amber said...

Great story Leelin!! Did they let you buy them a drink at the bar? Where did you post your other pics?
Nitabe-I sooo wish I was going to the NYC show. But money is veryy tight these days! I'm sure they will know I'm there in spirit though! :)Have fun and I cant wait to see your pics and hear your meet and greet story!

LeeLin said...

Lol...Chi you are a fool, i swear,lmao..and Amber, we were going to buy them drinks but that's when Cam said that she wanted to go to a place that had music, they were showing the Phillies game on tv so there was no music allowed...and I posted my other pics on the UHH website message board..you will see my post there, it says "OMFG, the absolute best night of my life!!!!!!"...hope that helps:)
