UPDATE I want this shirt!!!
I wasn’t going to post an update of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs concert until tomorrow afternoon, but I’m just too excited to share my experience with you all! The concert was damn good… again, shitty openings… well actually, the first act was pretty good, but I was only there for the last two songs. Karen O was so crazy!!!! She has such amazing and energetic stage persona. Some of the things she did: screamed into the mic while the head of the mic was halfway in her mouth; spun non-stop and sang perfectly at the same time; wore this really cool/weird skeleton outfit; wore a disco ball hat and spun it on her head. So, that was the YYYs show.
Now, here the highlight… So, I stood near the front at the far left side of the stage near an entrance to the backstage area. During maybe the second or third song, I noticed this girl in a green top walked out from backstage for like 10 seconds then headed back again. For the entire time, I was kind off looking at this girl and saying to myself “damn, she looks really familiar, where do I know here from?” Then, all the suddenly, it hit me… I went up to Millie and screamed, “OH MY GOD, I JUST SAW NATALIE PORTMAN!!!!!!!!!!!” Then, during the next song, I saw her again watching the show from the back… such a distraction! I think I was watching her rather than the YYYs during that entire song. So, that is not even the best part. Halfway through the show, she came out again, this time she was rocking out and dancing right beside me and Millie while the YYYs played “Y Control”… seriously, I almost died from excitement. I wanted to say something to her, just a “hi” or ask her to sign my ticket, but I didn’t want to bother her as she was just trying to have a good time like everyone else at the concert. So, that was my exciting evening. Now, I must go take a shower and go to sleep. I have to wake up in like 6 hours... class at 9am then workout after… I’m going to be so exhausted again!
