Story behind this photo….

So, I was hanging out with Caliope, who was waiting to meet the band, even though she didn’t have a ticket to the gig, because it sold out before she could get one. So the band arrived, but went straight from the van into the venue as it was nearing 5:30 and they still needed to soundcheck. Caliope needed to go to the bathroom so she took off and I went to check out how the queue was going. After about 10 minutes, I decided to walk back around to see if Calope was back, and lo and behold, Jon and Josh were outside having a cigarette. I approached Josh and he was like “Ohhhh hey Sweetie, how are you?” and walked over and gave me a HUUUUUUUUGE hug. He said he remembered me from the front row the night before and I showed him the other pic I got of us and he was like “Ohh yeah, the jail photo” haha. We were chatting for a bit and I asked him how his knee was, he told me that he’d had an MRI and needs surgery again, but was proud and happy that he hasn’t cancelled any shows, as he should be!

When Caliope came back. Josh noticed Caliope also had a walking cane (she’s got a bad knee) and he started sword fighting with her haha.

Anyway, we got some photos… Here’s Caliope’s

(Props to the photog, me! lol)

We all chatted a bit more and it came up somehow that Caliope didn’t have a ticket because they sold out so fast, and Josh was like “Let me guest list you” and we were like “Whaaaaaaaaaat! That’s amazing!” So he was like write your name down for me, and none of us had paper, so he got his phone out and put her name in it and gave her a +1. What an absolute sweetheart!
