A while back, I was messing around on Twitter and saw Girl Talk mention a show in Ann Arbor for the next day. I went to check it out but found out tickets weren't for sale, you had to find the bus and they would give you tickets. It was part of a concert series sponsored by AXE-they bring big name acts to small venues in college towns-and Girl Talk was the latest to go on tour.
Gift bags they gave out-believe me when I say it legit smelled like a 13 year old boys room in there lol
I was a little disappointed but figured it was no big deal. As I was leaving work, I remembered my friend Katie is friends with Girl Talk aka Gregg, so I mentioned to her he was in town. Fifteen minutes later I get a text from her that she got us tickets! I was so excited I literally squealed in my car ha ha
The next day at work I could barely contain myself and couldn't wait to leave so I could go get ready!
You have to have some sort of neon to see Girl Talk haha
Katie and a few of our other friends met up for a few before we headed down to the Blind Pig, where the show was being held. The worst part was that we had to wait in line before the show and it was freeeeezing! By the time we got inside, my fingers were so cold I couldn't even text-it was pretty tragic lol But we were "on the list" so we got to cut in front of a few people towards the front- I felt pretty special lol
After we got inside, we made our way up to the front of the Pig (which is pretty easy to do)-we ended up being on the side of the stage when the opening band was performing.
People Under the Stairs were the opening act and they were pretty great. I used to listen to them and they put out some pretty legit hip-hop. It was definitely nice to be able to see them perform in person.
The crowd was a little iffy and I was starting to get worried because of how everything had gone down the last time I saw Girl Talk. We even got into a little fight and got some girl kicked out in between sets. Luckily, after she left, it got a whole lot better.
Unfortunately, that picture is the only one I took because.....
I WAS ON STAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At all of his shows, he brings people up on stage to dance and we were able to spend pretty much the entire concert dancing and jumping around. By the end of it, we were sweaty, gross messes but I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Definitely something I'll remember for the rest of my life.
I was so happy to be able to go and it definitely filled the live music void I was feeling in December. Though, it's back again now...guess I'll just have to find some more live music to fill it hehe
By the way here's a picture I got off of AXE's facebook page....
Place was packed!
(Points if you can find me haha)
