One time at a concert me and all my friends got right up to the fence where they separate VIP from the crowd, or rather hot girls from the not so hot ones.
We sat there, waiting, watching girl after girl get to go in ONE OF THEM BEING MY BEST FRIEND and i remember me and all my friends were SO SAD cause they’re such a popular band in their genre and they’re from our town you know and we had come out to support them. We bought merch and everything
So i see the singer and some girl all lovey dovey and me and my friends start goin wild! I mean like yelling his name and waving him down.
He looked over and smiled at us like it’s not a total waste of time if we got him to make brief eye contact? Ya know? Anyway he starts walking our way but right past us and i just yelled at the top of my lungs “IS IT BECAUSE WE AREN’T HOT?!?!?” He just hung his head straight down and was like “NOOO OH MY GOD I’M SO SORRY” and took pictures with us and had a fairly long and down to earth conversation with us. Looking back in retrospect i know coming from some like 13 year old girls he was probably just so shocked.
What’s funny though is that if you’re out at night at all really or at the right show, you’d see all of these mother fuckers there! Jonny Craig stays downtown, i used to see kurt travis working at urban outfitters, everytime i went to ace of spades matt mingus was at the club right next door. The only people i’ve never seen outside of that day were jon mess and will swan. They’re just some fuckin dudes you know? Yet that’s like my favorite memory of anything cause i got to learn that like this!
It’s crazy how important people are in your life at that age, well any age really. I don’t know, i guess it was awesome that we got to see the human side of someone that i really did used to idolize even it was wasn’t the ideal situation of how i wanted to meet them.
And that’s how i met Kurt Travis.
