How fun to still love live music as much as I do. I still check venues regularly around town to see whose playing and whats happening that I may want to do. Well it just so happens on Monday around 2pm Im listening to 102.1 KPRi and they announce Donavon Frankenreiter is playing at the Belly Up. Excuse me!!!!!!!!!!!!! At the Belly UP? 5 miles from my house? OMG. I checked the website calendar and sure as shit. He's playing Monday and Thursday...............both shows
SOLD OUT! Son of a bitch. Since I work with all the biggest players in the media industry I start askin around if we have any connections with Belly Up. I got a big fat NO from everyone. Dammit. One of my buddys said call and see if they released any more tickets. I did. They had just released 2 tix. As I had KAT on hold at the box office Im thinking to myself...........well who in the hell am I gonna go with? DER! So I hang up. That evening I was talkin with my buddy Sonny and he was into going THUR to the show. He can get tix since he and Donavon are friends. RAD! So we plan on THUR and all week Im stoked thinkin about it. YEA. Ends up Donavon changed his number and Sonny cant get a hold of him. No biggy. We will just go and buy tix from scalpers when we get there. Lil adventure. ;-) Im up for it! Well THURs my buddy Marty at my office comes up to me and says "Do you belive in fate?" "Of course" I say "Well you must have some good karma cuz here ya go" as he hands me 2 tix to Donavon Frankenreiter! HOLY SHIT! One of the guys at the office had 2 extra and gave them to Marty and Marty gave them to me. WOW. ASK AND IT IS GIVEN ............... I was walkin to the bar to get my thousandth beer and these guys saw me holding my camera, took it, and their budy took this pic. ha ha Just random guys but I had to post it cuz I thought it was a funny thing to happen to a chick mindin her own business. In the picture we all look like were bff's! Hilarious. Well the show rocked and another hero of mine joined Donavon on stage towards the end of his the set. Rob Machado. It was awesome. Not a bad evening............and my all time fav part was when he first took the stage and said "Check, check check" into the mic........damn thats hot.
