At this point, I don’t know if the people who did the soundtrack will be part of this tour, but if so, we’re talking Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson, and...Elvis Costello (!!!). But even if it’s not them, I’ve loved John for many years, and I will enjoy hearing this music.
In the afternoon, I got an email from the Morris that said their presale would be tomorrow, so I got in on the pre-presale! That was because I follow Mellencamp on Twitter.
Then I messaged the guy who is doing the State Theater renovation, Drew, asking if they were doing a presale for Rocky Horror. He said yes, both via a website and at Brew Werks (housed in the State Theater building), but if I let him know how many tickets I wanted, he’d set them aside for me. How super cool is that?? Thanks, Drew!
You know, I’m kinda starting to dig this whole social media thing. I think it might have a future. haha Seriously, I love being involved with this stuff and getting early notice about things like this. People are amazingly cool about helping if you have a question, or reaching out to fans and offering them a little extra, a little early. For an unabashed fangirl like me, it can be a lot of fun. One of the coolest moments of my life was getting a shout-out from Peter Coyne, the lead singer of the Godfathers, in Chicago. He said hi to me—onstage!—and told the crowd that I was one of their biggest fans. He was right! I thought it was very sweet of him to do that, as well as sending me a t-shirt and a signed CD. I got to chat with him later and there is a picture out there of me sitting on his lap. :D I even got to dance with Del Bartle, the guitarist. Seriously, just super nice guys.
Anyway! I’ll stop gushing now, but it was a good day. Not just for entertainment purposes, either. After a chilly spell, we’re back up to 80°, and it was a beautiful, sunny day. After my workout, I had a wonderful afternoon listening to music and sunning myself on the deck. I love this time of year so much!
Do I need to turn down the happiness level a little bit? It’s at 11 at the moment.
