[I’ll just copy & paste the feelings I typed out for facebook]
I’ve been thinking about what I wanted to say on this picture because there’s not a lot of words that will do justice for how I feel right now. It’s gonna sound so silly, ridiculous and a bit jumbled because we got home at 3AM and my body wants sleep.
Tonight was the best show I’ve ever been to so far in my whole life - perhaps not the extravagance or the level of effort that maybe 21p did with confetti raining from the sky - but they’re fucking killer performers, put on a phenomenal show that you don’t get to see very often these days, a show that doesn’t need an abundance of lights to convey the quality, and I already knew that long before this day.
I don’t talk about how much I love this man, The Last Shadow Puppets or the Arctic Monkeys because honestly I don’t know how to explain it without jokes or memes. Genuinely. Even saying “love” feels cheapened some how.
I’ll just say this music is a significant part of my life, and everything was so surreal for me. I never thought I’d get to see TLSP live and I couldn’t even grasp that I was seeing them live until I was actually SEEING them, like, 15-20 ft away from me. Miles was just right there, and I cracked jokes but I honestly couldn’t believe it? I thought I’d cry, but instead I just feel shaken and just… all this warmth and familiarity like, there they are. Wow. Maybe I’m just in shock and it hasn’t settled in yet, but either way my heart is full. (stop the sap)
It’s not quite right to say I “met” Alex Turner with this photo - it was moreso we snapped a quick picture when he was visiting fans and he immediately moved to the next person, then had to leave - but this is so weird to me. I can’t even look at this picture without wanting to laugh, and for once I don’t look awful in something I care about. I think I’m just embarassed?? But I feel so fucking happy and that’s all that matters. I spent the two hour drive home trying to finally really explain the why/what/when/how with my affection and admiration for this guy, and what I can come back with is that I’m so thankful I bought these tickets. This means so much to me.
