My blog’s notoriety is already paying dividends. Yesterday afternoon, a faithful reader offered me a ticket to see the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs in concert. I love the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs and especially their lead singer Karen O. For those of you who don’t know Karen O, she makes Joan Jett look like Carry underwood, she makes the Sex Pistols look like Hanson, she makes Jay Matthews look like Jay Matthews.
I met the gentleman who was providing the concert ticket at his residence in Willow Grove, he has asked to be referred to as “The Edman”. The Edman packed a nice cooler filled with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages so we could relax in the parking lot before the show and he could ask me questions about my blog and how I came to be such a prolific writer. An hour later, we arrived at the parking lot outside the Electric Factory and the Edman realized he left the cooler at the parking lot of his residence in Willow Grove.
The concert was spectacular. The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs played music from both of their albums and she went full throttle the entire time. Stomping, screaming, jumping, and writhing, she was so full of emotion, it was like drinking from a fire hose. I think my favorite performance was “A Date With the Night”.
It was a great concert and I feel good knowing that I made one of my biggest fan’s dreams come true.
