In March I posted a story about how I got another chance of experiencing ODESZA live once again, but I'll tell it again because the magic continued after that.

I've been a fan for a while now, but I never even thought about attending a concert because I had never been to one. Last summer I had the privilege of seeing ODESZA live at Hard Summer Music Festival and I just fell in love even more. but I began to imagine if ODESZA is great here, how would a concert be!? So I began to look into tour dates and they were coming near me in December! but an emergency occurred the day before ticket sales and I didn't have the money to buy the tickets, and yes. they sold out immediately. I was crushed because there was no other date near me and I was just really bummed out. I had my family join that contest to win tickets through Facebook but still no luck and I kinda just gave up. :(

On Valentine's Day my boyfriend gave me an ODESZA shirt and I was so happy but I didn't wanna over wear it since it was black and I didn't want the color to fade so I wore it for the first time in March. I went to school listening to ODESZA and I drove him still listening to ODESZA. My boyfriend called me and we were just talking about going to Hard Summer this year again and hoping that ODESZA would come back( which they aren't😞) and he started panicking and telling me that I won't believe what just happened. He then tells me that literally 3 seconds ago ODESZA announced another show in San Jose!! I freaked out and I was so so happy at the fact that I would experience this. We bought the tickets and we were set.

Day of San Jose concert:
I decided to wear my shirt for the second time because it meant so much to me that the first time I wore it was when they announced this show and now I was here! We arrived 2 hours early and it was great talking to the people that were there early too. There were 6 lines and we were at the 2nd line, first in line and we were READY to run up those stairs. As soon as they begin scanning, our scanner DOESN'T work! I was about to cry but I had to get it together and think of something. I did not wanna be in the back. I ask the guy next to us if he can scan and he did! We run up to where they check bags and they told me my bag was too big so I had to take it back to the car knowing that would take like 20mins and I had to be in the front. So I take everything out and throw the bag on the side and I run in! I was so relieved to see my boyfriend waiting in the front row saving us a spot😭 The entire concert Clay is laughing at my reactions to every song, I was singing my heart out that day and I began to bawl my eyes out during Kusanagi. I have a huge weakness to that song. No matter where it plays I cry. The fact that Sean was in the middle of Clay and Harrison, playing the guitar for his own song was breathtakingly beautiful😭 The concert was amazing. I have no words. The best thing I've EVER experienced. it made me forget all of the problems in this world and I felt as if I was in a dream. After the concert ended and everyone continued to cheer and they came back to play a couple more songs. Clay was still watching me go crazy lol and the finally comes.. I did not want this to end. Clay moves to the side away from his drum set and looks and points at me with his drumstick, at this point I've lost my mind. He throws the drumstick and I swear I'm seeing this in slow motion but I'm 4'11! and it goes a bit past my head!😭 But my boyfriend put his hand up and caught it!! I began to cry even more and I just couldn't believe what just happened. While I was trying to process everything Harrison gets off the stage and hugs us and I just loose it again😭❤️ I can't even begin to explain this night. My life isn't so bad, and I'm thankful for my life but this night, seeing ODESZA live was the highlight of my life.

I love you ODESZA. Thank you for making me feel your music. Thank you for loving your fans as much as we love you.

Thanks for reading guys.

@jeniferflores YAY!!! It's sure is. There's a real deep connection with the song. It's quite hard to explain, but I guess different people will connect with something unique in the song.
Yes it sure is unforgettable. I can't help but hang on to the hope that I will see them again, but not just see them, actually meet them!! Ahh😁😍☺️
P.s am I the only one with a Clayton crush lol😋

Wow! What a story! As I'm reading I'm like yes, yes , yes. Of course rude when you so hyped you have stuff ups!... When I saw them in Brisbane at the Tivoli a few weeks ago my mum booked the tickets so I didn't know the info... We were staying at TRYP hotel a couple of blocks down. We were early to the line up but of course when I get there it's an 18+ venue and I didn't have my ID on me.. I legged my booty as fast as I could all the way back to the Hotel up to the 4th floor and all they way back in 5mins! My mum was like "your flipping Spider-Man" lol.
And YES 'Kasangi' makes me cry everytime! It's such a beautiful innocent song. There's somewhat of a healing affect it has on you. You can picture the sounds of laughter as innocent children play. The trickling noises are like the glistening glow of a warm sunny day. When your having a down day it's like their song song is giving you a big hug and saying "it's ok, I'm here for you".
Before I knew who the genuineness behind the songs I adored were, I could tell whoever created such amazing pieces of music were really down to earth, genuine people... Like come on!! Snoop dog didn't make that $H!T
I'm so happy for you having that amazing experience, and omg they hugged you! I didn't get a hug or the stick.. Well kinda but my Mum dropped it!😁 but I can say hands down🙌🏼 that day, that night I had with my Mum seeing ODESZA LIVE WAS THE BEST OF MY LIFE!!! Such a highlight I will never forget, only leaving me wanting more and more, that I want to fly to America now. I can't go a day without listening to them and long for the day to actually meet them and tell them how much I appreciate what they do. Everyday of every hour they unknowingly bring joy to someone's day, including mine.☺️😘✌🏼️🌻

At the Sacramento show, Clay smiled right at me and I almost lost it. ODESZA and the band are the most amazing guys ever. They are so real and they are so nice to their fans. I loved your story, thank you for sharing it with us. Looks like we both had unforgettable experiences this past weekend. ❤️😊🎉😍❤️
