so last night was pretty much the best night of my life. i saw metric aka my favorite band ever with my friends jess and sara. they were AMAZING!! they played a lot of unexpected songs, including the police and the private, which is my favorite. i had so much fun jumping and singing along to everything.
i drew emily haines in her outfit in the synthetica music video so i could give it to her during the show. and I DID. at the end of the concert she got off the stage, approached the crowd, took the framed copy of it from my hands and said “thank you!” it was pretty surreal.
there was an afterparty and they were all there. i met them. it felt extremely unreal and i still can’t believe that it happened. emily talked to me about my picture and asked if i did art. i said that i was going to school for it, and she said that that was cool, and that she loved how i captured her expression in my drawing. it was pretty much the happiest minute of my life. i also had really short but cute conversations jimmy, joules and joshua. i was also pretty drunk while all of this was happening.
i brought another copy of my picture and they all signed it. it is now one of my most prized possessions. if i’d known that all of this was going to happen, i would have drawn them a much better picture. getting to meet the people who make the music that inspires me just felt so surreal.
life is just so great, guys.
