Meeting Your Music Favorites
Last weekend, I attended Kaskade’s show in Atlanta. It was simply amazing, and he definitely played a set that blew my mind!
One great thing I noticed about Kaskade was the whole show, he seemed really personable and friendly. He played a longer set than I ever expected (longer than most DJs of his caliber do at a show in Atlanta) and even stayed after the show in the heat to talk to some of the fans who had stayed. He came down, and instead of just snapping a few pictures he actually chatted with us about his tour, Ultra Music Festival (he got bumped because the sets ran long…lame), and how he liked ATL.
(He threw that glow necklace into the crowd and I caught it! It was great!)
I always love it when musicians aren’t afraid to talk with and meet their fans. I’ve met some cool people – the bass player from Weezer, Of Montreal, the guys from Velvet Revolver (yes including Scott Weiland and yes he was strung out), the guys from Dr. Dog, and more. I’m totally nerdy, and get really excited when this happens!
So, what are your cool meeting-a-favorite-artist stories?
