Almost a year ago, The Rasmus played a gig in London and mentioned at the end that they would be back in London again this October. I immediately got tickets on the way home, and last night was that gig. Doors opened at Koko at 6pm, so I met my gig buddy for dinner at 6:30pm, and we had a leisurely meal, assuming The Rasmus wouldn't be on until 9pm at the earliest. But when we sauntered into the venue at 8:15pm, Lauri's dulcet tones drifted out into the foyer - they had already started! Still, I'm pretty sure we didn't miss much, because the set went on for well over an hour after that, and I got to hear pretty much all my favourites. I bounced, I screamed, I jumped up and down, I sang at the top of my lungs - and it was awesome! I really don't know why I love this Finnish emo rock band so much, but I do and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

They originally formed while they were still at school in 1994, but didn't become internationally popular until their fifth album in 2003, which is when I discovered them when I was off work sick and channel hopping. I caught the video for In The Shadows on MTV and I was hooked.

Last night was great, and my new gig buddy proved excellent company, so I shall be hoping for a repeat performance on all fronts before too long.
