Occasionally my life takes a turn down a different way and I find myself again in a cool place.
A couple of months ago I got to go see Eve 6 in concert.
Well, this time, I walked by yellow Chucks down to the Anaheim House of Blues to see a friend play twice that night.
Well, he’s not just a friend… he’s Mr. Wonder’s best friend ever.
The one with the crazy musician life that I love to hear stories about because mine is not at all the same.
And he loves hearing about us because his life is not at all the same.
Because he is like a brother, I got to parade around with a photo pass and wear a cool backstage pass wristband.
It was so awesome to completely escape my daily life and be somewhere, someone else.
I was the only woman scooting around the stage with a camera, and my awesome husband kept urging me on to shoot because that was what I was there for, instead of me standing hesitant at the side, someone who just happened to get lucky being there because they knew the right person.
I’ve always thought of myself as just cool by association, but it’s nice to also have a chance to live a cool life as well.
Rock concerts can be amazing to shoot. The colored lights, the hint of smoke in the air, the gross sweat from a hot stage and the inevitable dousing from a water bottle.
Man, was that cold.
And of course, there’s something always cool backstage.
Also? Imma dork.
Thanks Fawn for shooting this for me!
