The Gulf War Song 

From Aliya:

Being only my second show (the only two in Portland) I was very pleased. I haven't listened to the guys very long, but I love them. The opening band was Here Comes Everybody, just like the first show and by that time I use to them and enjoyed their performance. (The drummer has a clown head on top of his top hat symbol!) By the opening song, I was in a Jian trance. After a few songs, a tall man got up and started to stumble to the music. Soon, half of the audience was up in front. I, of course, rushed the stage to admire Jian from directly in front of him with my cousin gazing at Murrey (we're very obsessed fans!) The music and performance was so powerful, I was singing every word. Jian, including the rest of the guys would smile and make gestures towards us, and Murry pointed to my cousin. I was screaming with joy as they started No No Raja, acknowledging that there was a crazy girl fan requesting it at the June concert (me, of course) and I belly danced the whole song. My voice was raw, but I screamed my lungs out for the three ancores, and waited afterwards for more pictures with my men. (Now having 2 whole rolls of film worth). I left the Alladin Theatre with the amazing, teen crazy love as I had the first show. I loved it. There is never a time when I am more happy than when I am standing next to Jian, arm around his waist, waiting for my pictures. I love Jian!
