The show was awesome! And the guitarist that used to play for Bonnie Raitt and some guy on harmonica came by to see him (I dont remember their names, but Peter said them so I'll know when I get everyone on YouTube) and the band and jammed with them. Freakin' MAGICAL. Anyway, I'm putting Steppin Stone up on You Tube right now so next post will have that. Frickin' people getting up and dancing all in my shot. But it's all good. Except that I accidentally erased the entire first hour of the show... Oh well There's always next time.
He was nice though. I got a picture with him and CDs signed. He had cool shoes too. Lol. Converse with black and white checkered stripes and laces. I was totally regretting not wearing my converse with my checkered pink and black laces.
We arrived way early. The club people told us it would be packed and to be there at 5. the band didn't even show up til 7 but we got to watch them sound check. Kinda boring cuz they didn't do any actual songs and the sound guy was late. Anyway Peter was coming off the stage and I said:
"Peter! I gotta tell you this awesome story."
He just kinda smiled and shook his head, "All right but I'll tell you right now, you can tell me--"
"But you're not gonna listen?" I smiled.
"No, I'll listen, but it won't be awesome."
"Ooh, well, then." I laughed, "I think it was."
He nodded, "Alright, you've got 90 seconds. Go!"
I laughed, "Okay well, there was this big blue van we saw while driving up here, with a big pink peace sign on the back and on the sighed it said 'Music is the only thing that makes sense anymore'. I said, Oh I wonder who they're going to see..."
He smiled, "Okay I take it back. That is pretty cool."
Haha. Also, I asked for a hug and he was all cool like "Yeah, sure" and gave me a kind half hug cuz I was sitting right next to him on the stage. We bonked foreheads softly. Lol.
He's still way sexy. He looks AWESOME in our picture (the second one because the first one I look drunk and there's a bad glare on his glasses) and I still manage to look awful. Why is it I look awful in my pictures with famous people? The RSC picture is the best one. Oh well. Next time! Lol.
But yeah I didn't dance because I was starving and had red beans and rice which were good but spicey and made my stomach hurt thirty minutes later and I wanted to tape it.
But now I know, next time I'll have more memory cards and be able to get better quality. And hopefully it'll be better lit. Cuz that was a big problem.
I'm sure Ali will have a line by line recap.( PICTURES UNDER DA CUT! )
EDIT by kittencuffs
: Hey everyone, Ali here. Lara texted me from work and asked me to include a little tidbit she'd forgotten to mention in the recap.
After Lara told Peter the story about the van, and Peter agreed that that was, indeed, awesome, he said, "I get so many people wanting to tell me these "awesome" things that aren't awesome at all. I get women coming up to me after shows and saying "MY SISTER KNOWS DAVY!" "...And?" These was one guy, when we were doing a show near where I live, who comes up to me and says "Hey, I know your mailman!" These are not awesome things. These are borderline-stalker things."
Now back to your regularly scheduled Lara.
