After meeting with my sociology professor (who is a saint and a half) I took myself on a date. One large americano with an extra shot (yeah…that’s 5 shots of espresso…) and a live free Andrew Bird show in one of my favorite record stores. Heaven.
After the show I went up to the two guitarists while they were looking at records to thank them for playing. They asked where I was from and I said the Bay Area. The bald one smiled really big and the other one asked if I was going to the gig tonight. Like a complete lame person I had to say I couldn’t because I had to revise for an exam. He looked at me blankly which I thought meant he didn’t get what that meant, so I said “I have to study tonight. I love you guys from back home, this was my one break.”
Basically, I missed my chance at being a rock star. I also told them to go to this place called the Canteen for great live music and beer if they have the time. It’s my favorite place in Bristol. I then spoke to Andrew Bird whose voice is like an angel. *__*
