Thursday night my favorite band Hunter Hunted (originally from UCLA) posted a facebook status:
Having followed this band since I first saw them as a freshman (7 years ago), I felt the need to tell how I felt about them. I couldn’t go to the performance, as UCLA’s Spring Sing (the BEST talent show around!) is tomorrow night, but I wanted to let everyone know how great this band is:
Four score and seven years ago (minus the four score…) I remember standing in the Grand Ballroom at UCLA, waiting for Sugarcult when a band, Mikey G and Dan from Danville, came onstage and sang about Career Day at school. From that moment on I fell in love with the band and did such embarrassing things as sit in the front row for an hour at Festival of Books, just to make sure I wouldn’t even miss the tune-up; scream like a schoolgirl when their van pulled up outside the House of Blues in SD; and force my Greek coworkers to listen to LDs songs non-stop on repeat. Why do I love Mike and Dan so much? Because these are guys who care about their fans. Recognizing faces, taking the time to talk to people, hand delivering their first EP to my dorm door because they happened to be in town; when they take time like that and invest in their fans, well, we fans are powerless to resist. I too will be unable to attend on Friday (as it’s Spring Sing at UCLA!), but I hope whoever gets chosen loves these guys as much as those of us from the beginning have.
And with that, I tucked myself into bed, and went about my day today.
Opened my facebook account to discover:
At first I wrote to thank them, but deny the invitation, but then I received the reply,
“Could you make it at 11 am?”
Why yes. Yes I can.
The other request they have for me?
“Perfect! We want you to Tweet and Instagram your experience, start tweeting now!”
Well, I’ve never used Twitter, and I’ve instagramed one photo… but for this. I will do it.
So if you’d like to add me; if you wouldn’t like to, you should totes do it anyway.
I didn’t promise them followers. Or quality. But I’d sure like to try!
But I figure, in the end: I CAN promise them a blog entry about it!
