Something Dumb I Did Vol. 1

The Ratatat Show, 2006.

In college I discovered the band Ratatat, and from that day on I was never the same. I was obsessed - I bought every album, owned every single, saw every show that I could.

They had a power over me.

So I bought a ticket to a headlining show in Hollywood at the Music Box.
The only problem I had with their shows, however, was that I could never get into their opening acts. For me, no one was good enough to stand alongside them.
This night was no exception.
I waited...I endured. Whatever it took until my favorite band took the stage.It wasn't the first time I stood through the entire set, holding my spot at the front.
But this time, something different happened....To say I was starstruck would be an understatement.Because OH ---- MY ---- GOD ---- there they were ---- just backstage, and enjoying the show.Held captive by an opener I'd long since given up on, I could do little else but STARE...so I STARED.
...and I STARED......and I STARED......and I STARED......and I STARED some more, without realizing that, up in the front, standing 6'4", directly in front of open stage and blinding bright lights I had at that moment become the most conspicuous object imaginable.Ya, it was pretty dumb.
