So, today, July 5th 2009, was pretty FREAKING AWESOME.
Well, it started with Libby, her mom, and me drivin' down to the good ol' hollywood bowl for some death cab for cutie rehearsal.
we get there and it says: CLOSED REHEARSAL. D:
we were slightly sad that we weren't allowed to see them and sit in the audience. We automatically assumed that they were snobby. first we tried sneaking around to one of those towery things behind the café but then we chickened out after they played i will posess your heart. we ended up having a pretty swell time goofing off in the lounge and backstage. making coffee and sugar water and tea. cool stuff like that. A few times while walking around, some of the band memebers walked past us, sadly we didn't know their faces well, so it was like "HEY LOOK THAT GUY LOOKS LIKE HE COULD BE IN THE BAND"
Then at the lunch break we got to go on stage. We checked out the cool lights that light up the bowl (ends up its a bunch of LED bulbs screwed onto the back of the pannels. We saw the band from afar. Chris Walla (guitar) had a bright red jacket on. Nick Harmer (bass guitar) had a beard and brown cordaroys and deep purple nikes. Jason McGerr (drums) was wearing glasses, an olive green shirt, and i think a beanie (unsure) along with his glasses.
Then there's this little biddy named Ben.
Lead singer of death cab Ben.
Libby and I were slightly upset that we weren't meeting any, then suddenly Ben walked past libby. Her mom, while applying chapstick waved him over. HE TALKED TO US AND SHOOK OUR HAND. he was talking about how he wished he had the strings and stuff in the back to begin with because it sounded good. i agreed. he was super nice. He was wearing a white shirt. his armpit was blue haha. paint or über nice.
We were so giddy after that.
The concert's tonight. Opening for DCFC is something and Tegan and the New Pornographaers. one of their songs was on chuck :D
Pretty excited. More on that after.
