Everybody Talks...

a few weeks ago Rick got a call from a friend.
he needed a favor.
Rick said yes.
as a thank you, we got tickets to Neon Trees.
and back stage passes.
I've never been back stage.
It was as the Depot in Salt Lake.
We took the girls.
There were 3 opening bands.
It was the first time that Neon Trees has sold out a head lining concert.
Right here in their very own state.
The last concert before they take a short break.
I must say, it was pretty awesome.
They put on a great show.
We stayed after and went back stage.
(did you know all 4 of the band members are RM's?)
Here we are with the band after the concert.

This is Elaine, the drummer.
She is 7 months pregnant.
And that is why this is their last concert for a few months.
It's Elaine's husband who needed the favor.
So, we are kinda friends with a rock star.
read more about Sebastian & Elaine here.

These girls are part of a band called the Blue Aces.
They were the first band to open for Neon Trees.
They are from Orem.
The lead singer is Crystal Ramirez.
She is 16.  
Her sister plays the drums and she is 14.
How fun would that be to open for Neon Trees???

Super fun night.  But it reminded me that I am not 21 anymore.
We got home at 1:30 am.
We set the alarm for 3:15 am.
We rode a bus up Provo Canyon.
And then ran a 1/2 marathon.
Again, I am not 21 anymore.
Worst 1/2 marathon ever.
Would do it all over again.

I told this story to two clients this morning. I was basking in your reflected glory: "friend of a friend of a rock star". I even told them about taco bell.
