So walkingimdbpage sent me a picture of Thiessen’s tweet this afternoon about a free show tonight at the High Watt in Nashville, and I decided to go (and got a friend to go with me thankfully) and I’m so glad I did because it was so awesome and all my dreams came true and omg
It was so weird because I actually knew the people in the opening band because they play at the place my sister and I do open mic nights, and they were surprisingly good (they’re called Tumbleweed Company)
And then this random country girl played a set and it was so annoyingly cliche country teenage girl or something, but at least she could sing. They were actually making a music video so during the first band’s set she was dancing around the crowd and they were filming it and my friend and I were just in the background looking like we were having a crappy time (because we were at the moment lol) so I guess I’m gonna be in a country video idk
AND THE DIRECTOR WAS KRISTEN STEWART???
I DON’T EVEN KNOW
IT WAS FRIGGIN WEIRD
And during country girl’s set I kept looking at the entrance for Thiessen or Hoopes to walk in
And then I spotted a curly white mane in the shadows
And of course it was Matty and I started freaking out and his new girlfriend was with him omg
I walked over to kinda where he was standing and he walked out into the hall and down the stairs, so I went down there so maybe I could pass him coming back up the stairs and say hi. But I ended up just walking downstairs and he and Hoopes were talking at the bottom and I was pretending to look at my phone lol
I looked up and was like “oh hey!” and Thiessen looked over and I said “I saw your tweet!” and he was like “oh cool! What’s your name?” and omg I got to talk to them for a minute and it was my first time meeting Thiessen so now I’ve met all the band members and I was freaking out.
Then they went up to play and it was just so good, I was so impressed with Bones and Hoopes’ tone was perfect and Thiessen was playing bass?? Lol.
I actually got to talk to both of them again after the show and it was great. Right as I was leaving I looked at Matty and was like “hey bass looks good on you!” and he grinned and said “it was my first time!” and laughingly ran away and it was hilarious and I am content now thank you Lord.
