Got back from Echo Park Rising y’all, I just can’t stop smiling! Beach Party at The Echo, my 6th time seeing them live, and I can’t believe what happen. Dude, they dedicated one of their songs to me! I got a shout out from the stage, I was blown away. It’s almost a blur because doesn’t seem like it happened but it did, it really did. James points at me and says my name and says this song is for me and I do the first thing that comes to mind, I’m in the front row I just throw my hands in the air and yell out “Yeah!” and “Woo!”, haha! I probably looked/sounded like such a dork but fuck it! One of the greatest moments of my life, for real. It was perfect really, the song they dedicated to me was “Fun”, and that’s exactly why I go to their gigs as often as possible. I just enjoy myself so much, no worries, no stress, no nothing but good times and good tunes.
It truly was an amazing day, ran into James and Adam before their set, they actually mentioned to me the fantasy football draft I was missing to go see their gig, I made a post about it here last night, I missed my fantasy football draft for them and James put his arm around me and mention the fantasy football and I wanted to bust out laughing, he actually knew about it, I knew Adam knew but guess it got around, haha. Also a little bit later Adam walks up on stage with like a pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon and the guy gives me one! That was freakin’ awesome, got some of Beach Party’s personal beer, I brought home the can with me, I ain’t joking I’m gonna frame that thing! The beach balls also made a return, couple beach balls in the crowd (along with a inflatable shark), at one point one of the beach balls got on stage and Adam kicked it right into my face, like dead on head shot, it was funny as hell, he just looked at me and started busting out laughing and I did too! I don’t know man, Adam is always hitting me with something, if it’s not his mic stand it’s a freakin’ beach ball, it’s all good though, I asked him for a set list after their gig and he gave me one so the beach ball right to the face is forgiven my man! And believe me if I could I would have taken the beach ball home too, haha.
Tonight just added more reasons why I will forever be a fan of these guys, I will always support them, fan for life they got me. Adam, James, Rob and Nico you guys are awesome and great people, and you surround yourselves with awesome/great people too. I met who I think is Nico’s girlfriend, Fo, and she actually told me “We know who you are, you’re family, we love you” and I was like I love you guys too, sweet moment and she even gave me a hug. Plus, so badass that she was on America’s Next Top Model I just found out, she is now officially my favorite person off of ANTM! Whoever reads this, go check out Beach Party, trust me you won’t regret it. http://wearebeachparty.com/
