So much fun tonight it's ridiculous.

But first of all. Did I tell you I met one of The Happen-In's this week? Like, two days after blogging about them?

Of course, it had to be the day I left the house looking like a HOT MESS. We're talking unwashed, gargantuan hair, zero make-up, beyond frightening.  I had just dashed out of the house that day to go to Uptown Modern, that vintage furniture store on Burnet, to snag this sweet green love seat I spied the day before. Which is where he works, apparently.

This was our conversation.

"Hi!!!!! Are you in The Happen-Ins?"

"... yes?"

"Oh! Wow! HEY! I really love your music. I heard it on the radio, then I posted about it, and I'm coming to the show on FRIDAY!"

"... that's cool ..."

"YEAH! Totally!"


"Ok, awesome!  Well.  See ya!!" (accompanied by large good-bye wave, even though he's literally standing right in from of me)

Haha. Seriously, what a dork right? It was right after this exchange that I saw a mirror. And unfortunately, my reflection.

I'm sorry if I scared you, Happen-Ins guy.

Anyway, about that show tonight.

The Happen-Ins and many others are playing at the Pixel Pop party this evening, where there is so much going on! Music, a fashion show, art, a comic book-themed photo booth. Who has two thumbs and is going to Mohawk tonight? This girl.

Adi Anand (From the Mind of Adi), Candace Carlisle (Electric Promotions) and Team Fabrication are the collective brains behind this event. Candace never ceases to amaze me in the parties she puts together.

There is also a different show tonight, starting a little earlier, at the Hole in the Wall. It features a few of my favorite local bands, including The Great Nostalgic!

I had heard of all of most of these guys before, but just now listened to The Sour Notes.

Le Tigre said...

Haha, you crack me up. That so sounds like something I would say, while probably bumping into and knocking down every fragile thing in the store.

I was such a hot mess yesterday, laying around in my hello kitty bath robe allll day. :-/ Have a great time at the show.

Everybody Wang-Chung tonight 'two-thumbs'...

Austin Eavesdropper said...

@Hipstercrite WOOHOO!! See you there!

@Le Tigre - Haha, I felt like SUCH a goober. It's just impossible for me to play it cool.

Hello Kitty robe? Please tell me it's pink. And has "Have a nice day!" written in feminine cursive, or something.

@Jennifer - Of course you did! You of the excellent music taste. Gonna go check out that article now.

@The Mad Hatter - Ok! Haha. Not sure if this is what you meant, but I internally sang your comment to the tune of "Everybody have fun tonight"

Sounds like it would have been a great night!

It's kimono style, my friend brought it back for me from Japan. No pink though, my mom pretty much traumatized me from ever liking the color, with pinky frilly dresses that always itched.
