Miami Horror + Kimbra - I Look To You
Here is what happens when Kimbra goes all disco
So here I am with the golden pass.
In other words, this is the full story.
As I was leaving uni today ready to drop by the city to give in some resume, I bumped into my workmate Meagan and decided to stay with her for a bit. Anyways, when I did end up leaving she texted me about the music event that was on which I had no clue about. Then she mentioned Bag Raiders and Miami Horror, my heart was set on going especially for something only $25, that was near my home at uni. Couldn’t resist.
So after I returned back to the university, I killed time with Meagan and went to withdraw the money. Got that, then went to the bar to buy the tickets from the bartender. One problem, she told me they were sold out. On the plus side, there was Benjamin Plant, the man behind Miami Horror in the flesh. He probably isn’t used to a random weirdo being a little starstruck but whatever, one of my favourite bands so who wouldn’t go a bit nuts.
He pretty much turned around and offered me a pass. So I took up the offer and gave my name and in my heart, celebrated like a douchebag on acid. Thirtyy second slater I asked for a photo. Anyways, we continued on some errands and exited via behind the stage to where Benjamin went out of his way by running towards us to inform us that we needed the pass beforehand to enter. So his plan was to hide the passes under the bushes for our later collection. Phenomenal!
Next thing I knew when Les came over, we went to claim the tickets which thankfully was in the nick of time as Bejamin happened to be right there.
The rest is history.
Lucky, lucky me. I have no right to complain for a month!
My Life Is Fulfilled
