i had my first solo show last night.
i am so grateful for, and stoked on my friends, family and everything that went down last night.
i am the luckiest girl and cannot even explain how much LOVE i have for everyone... just the most beautiful people. ever.
as promised i had fried chickens and did some beer shotgunning. also: successfully broke my own heart, secretly cried onstage.... but also had some good laughs.
my super wonderful Dead Voices band mates kurtis and dan were there and sang along to the songs they knew.. which just made me the happiest little goomba (srsly how nice is that?).. kurtis also stepped in as my official beer tech - as i am completely incapable of making a shot gun hole in a beer can. just not a skill i possess..
i honestly can't even believe all the friends, from different circles, that came out last night. i am MOVED.
i'll tell you. i was nervous to play. because of this i was very all over the map (more so than usual). i was supreme super epic scatter brain. i lost my wallet TWO times last night. and again this morning. but the funniest thing was losing my envelope of showmonies......
so jessica 'handj' sands my lovely friend, who put the show together, had, earlier in the night decided to hold on to my $$ since i was being a complete savage... she knew had i gotten the $$ i would have probably:
a) lost envelope immediately upon receiving
b) lost envelope within 45 seconds of receiving
at the end of the night, after Jess drove ol wobblepops legs home, she finally handed over the money... she thought there was no way i could fuck up THAT BAD and lose the money in 50 steps.
i proved her so wrong.
infront of the gate, before parting ways she stopped me and asked:
"OK ALLIE, where's the money?"
and i said:
"HAHA... comeon! It's riiiiiiggghhttt here in my pock---..... (nervous laugh)... (silent panic)... fuck"
i had reached into the pocket i had (literally) just put it in and found NOTHING.
like.. actually? actually? seriously? how ridiculous is that? how adept am i and being a complete space case loser money loser... just should write HOW TO books on that shit..
we started retracing our steps and half way down the alley we spotted it... this sad lonely crumpled envelope just chillin in the street light waiting for some lucky hobo.
T-H-A-N-K-C-H-R-I-S-T for JSANDS. i laughed to myself so much today thinking about what a joker i was last night.. just losing everything (mind included!)... and how happy i am that jess was around to help me out. super bonus plus to my life knowing that little button. SRSLY.
anywaysENJOY THESE PICTURES OF JESS BEING LIKE "REALLY? REALLY ALLIE? DID YOU ACTUALLY GO WITH OPTION A? HAD YOU WAITED 45 SECONDS IT WOULD HAVE AT LEAST FALLEN INTO YOUR HALLWAY"
