this is not something i can just see as i’m lazily scrolling through tumblr there should a be a warning that says “prepare to have your mind blown and make you extremely jealous and want to kill me as wel as yourself” I NEED YOU TO TELL ME EVERYTHING
I went to the show by myself, right? And I met this girl (Lauren) who wound up sitting next to me and we became insta-friends (and later realized we had a mutual friend, small world/city/whatever)… She was there for St. Vincent mostly, and I like St. Vincent a whole lot but I was mainly there for the Byrne. And the show was amazing, I won’t even go into the details. I’ll save that for later or for someone who’s better at words…
OH MY GOD MY HANDS ARE STILL SHAKING, THIS IS SO DIFFICULT TO TYPE.
Anyway so… I got to the venue (the Chicago Theater) a couple hours before the doors opened and just hung out in the area, wound up walking all around the block and discovered where the tour buses were. So me and Lauren went around to that area after the show. And after almost two hours David came out and came to the barricades (we were closest to the stage door) and Lauren asked if she could get a picture of me with him, and he was like “sure!” But then I got fucking bombarded by all these people who were behind me that just started shoving me and pushing me down to get David to sign their records/pictures/whatever. It was so rude but I’m pretty shy so I couldn’t say anything. And then someone distracted him and he moved down the line. I was disappointed that I didn’t get a picture with him, but what can you do? I tried to get his attention to get him to come back over but I’m quiet, shy, whatever.
So he went into the bus and I was a little sad, but I was glad I’d met him because he is seriously my idol, basically. Anyway we were waiting for Annie and the crowd thinned down substantially so security took the barricades away. And there were very few people left. And then David came back out to get something from under the bus. And I sort of shakily walked up to him and said “um, excuse me… sorry, would you mind if I got a picture with you?”
And he said yes so Lauren got someone to take a picture of both of us with him and he is smiling so big in the picture. As Rose said, it looks like he’s the one excited to meet us. It’s on Lauren’s camera, so it’ll be a while before I can post it, but yeah. I’M SO EXCITED, I CANNOT GET OVER IT. He was so nice and ugh.
And then we met Annie, but that’s another story.
Also I love your URL. And please don’t kill yourself!
