I guess when bands come into a town and they have a few spare days to hang out, they hire a company to take them around. Well, this company contacted me at work two days ago and asked if it would be cool to bring a "rock band" out here to hit golf balls and some people want to interview them while theyre here, and if we hook them up with some golf balls they will do some advertising and throw our name out there. So, I, in charge of apparently PR now think this is a heck of a good idea. I wasn't supposed to work today but I came in to hang out with the A.M guy and see this "rock band". It was a band called Attack Attack, they're in town doing two shows at The Social and they were super nice. It was kinda chaotic trying to get a picture with all the stupid interviewers but I ended up over an hour late to class, but hey, if Attack Attack gets big, I got me a picture with them!!
So rewind to about an hour before they show up, I was talking to a customer, just making idle chit chat and I say, "stick around, we got a rock band coming out, maybe you can meet them!", to which the guy I was talking to replied, "Honey, I just got signed by J Records in January, as an R&B artist why would I like to meet a rock band?" WHOA. So i'm like, no way, your lying, well guess what, he's wasn't lying. He showed me his under construction profile on the label's website and then showed me pictures from his signing where Alicia Keys and some other R&B-er attended. So thats kinda cool. Of course I got a picture with him too!! He was so nice, and he let me listen to a few of his song's that he just recorded, and if I was a fan of R&B I would like it, but im not, but he is talented though. He just moved into my friends neighborhood and he said he would definitely come around more often and he likes the "small town atmosphere" of this side of town.
WHAT?? A town that has a population of over 2 million people?!? Thats not counting the county area, just the Orlando Metro area. I can see where he would feel like its a small town. :)
So it's been quite the day, now im back at work. I was an hour late to class, the the teacher was none too happy. I'm thinking I want to pick up a new hobby. I think it's going to be concerts, a lot of bands have come through or around Orlando recently that I haven't been able to see due to: lack of money for tickets, school, cant take time off work, or nobody to go with me. So I noticed there's a few concerts coming up that I think no matter if I go alone, or have to call out of work...you better believe i'm going. :)
