So this one time i had the most amaaaaaaaazing week ever, starting at 3:20 AM a week ago. But then I didn’t manage to recap any of it because I was way too damn busy having a blast. And drinking the world’s most hipster manhattan (in a plastic cup).
The culmination of my awesome week happened last night when I went to the Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines. It’s a hipster bar that’s the size of a closet, and they have amazing bands from time to time. I saw 3 Inches of Blood there. And last night I saw Andrew WK. In fact, he saw me. And it was good portion of me too because the shirt was coming off. SWEATY.
There were high fives. And I got to scream “GET READY TO DIE” in the microphone. Oh, and I was sitting on stage most of the show, then was dancing on stage with him and most of the rest of the crowd when he decided “IT’S TIME TO PARTY, PARTY!!”
(just because that cracks me up!)
My friend Justin that goes to every show that I go to. So when I’m alone, I’m never actually alone because I swear he’s always there. 🙂
Ugh… it was so good. Best show I’ve gone to. Or at least in the top 3. I dunno, it might make number one.
I’m going to recap the rest of the week sometime this weekend, not for everybody else, but for me to remember the amazing week (and to thank the three lovely ladies and amazing sponsors who put our fantastic Blend Retreat together again).
But for now. I will remember last night. Mostly. Mark probably won’t … haha.
Also, I’m sorry, but I’m probably blogging about this concert again in a week when our local paper comes out because they were taking photos and the guy was like “you were in a lot of them.” And I’m going to be stalking YouTube to see if there is video from the show because I’m pretty sure that somebody was taking some, and I want to see how much of a tool I was sitting on stage the whole time. Ouch. My knees!
And I was stalking AWK’s instagram, and this came up. And I needed to see this. So thanks, dude. I love you.
What is one of your favorite memories?
