One Year Ago – Boston KISS108 Concert and Twins
Posted by Juneau
I guess I was still crawling up the learning curve of truly fanatical fangirling, as I did not attend the Boston KISS 108 concert last year, reasoning that sitting through an entire day of second-rate talent amid a sea of screaming tweens was not a price I was willing to pay to see Adam perform for 20 minutes. Plus I had tickets in hand to see him at Foxwoods and Providence. WHAT WAS I THINKING? DJ Matty in the Morning’s comment about Adam is still one of my all-time favorites. Did you attend? Share your memories with us!

KISS108 pre-show interview with Matty Siegel – “lines snaking out the door…”
As viewers will undoubtedly notice, Monte Pittman did not perform in this concert. His twins were on their way, so he stayed at home. Tommy took over on guitar and Cam picked up the bass. They probably barely had time to play through once in rehearsal. Talk about a cliff-hanger! Under the circumstances, they did an excellent job!

After the KISS Concert, Adam made an appearance at radio station B104 for an OpenHouseParty session, taking requests and calls from .0001 percent of lucky callers who managed to get through. The video feed worked for only a handful of the elect who must have made the appropriate sacrifices to the god of Microsoft… They reported that Adam was happy and energetic, dancing around to the music playing on the air. Adam chatted with @msquisty from Texas who requested FYE (you go, girl!). Soon after, those in the chatroom with video eyes reported that Adam got up and vanished, leaving behind an empty chair and countless broken hearts. Such is the life of a Lambert fan.
Here’s something I posted last fall on wowowow in response to seeing this painting “Baroque” by Drake Lebry: I thought Baroque was a terrifically voyeuristic image with those eye-like patterns and how that sprawling chair invites one to imagine what might go on there. I like how it is painted on two panels, reminiscent of a Japanese byobu screen, and how it plays with dimensionality to create a dreamlike state. I told him I would buy it and hang it over my bed.
Post OpenHouseParty heartbreak, a late night twitter opera…
juneauxena: @adamlambert – Ahh, the Unbearable Lightness of being your fan…saga of the empty chair. I need a post-KISS cigaret
imjonsa: oh my. the trouble we are getting into tonight.
juneauxena: @yellowsister Sh*T!! I just saw a tweet that Adam is going to be at House of Blues – I’m too tired to go (and my family…) I’m a failure
juneauxena: @adamlambert is in my town, I know where he is now, and I’m not going to drop everything to stalk him. Is this a good sign or not? Confused.
yellowsister: @JuneauXena In a situation like that ask WWA do? He would not stalk. He’d let AFL have some privacy! But on the other hand…
juneauxena: @yellowsister WWA do? Grab a pretty boy, get drunk and…
yellowsister: @JuneauXena LOL! There you go then, you know what to do!
imjonsa: @adamlambert – good night with you at House of Blues in boston and with everyone at @openhouseparty
email arrives from friend: At the house of blues gay night. Adam Lambert just showed up ;). Tell Juneau
juneauxena: @celestlyn Of course now I’m crying in my coffee. A friend emailed me this morning to say he saw Adam Lambert at House of Blues. Boo hoo
email from juneauxena’s friend: Didn’t talk to him. He showed up around midnight, and I walked past the VIP area and saw him in there, and was pretty sure it was him, then the DJ announced that he was there. He pretty much spent the whole night in the roped off VIP area with his entourage, but he was talking with fans a bit and let some people take some pictures. There was one guy with him that looked familiar. I think it might have been that cute keyboard player he kissed on stage.
HAPPY DAY FOR MONTE AND LISA!!
