So, I was super lucky and won the Incubus Loves New York contest!!
I was invited to a private rooftop concert hosted by Vevo at Skylight West in Manhattan last night~
When Mike & I arrived, the event staff was handing out free beers and there were not many people there. We were chilling out & drinking our beers when I turned around to see DJ Kilmore just hanging out & chatting with fans! I got a chance to talk to him, and snap a quick photo...what a nice guy!
As it got closer to show time, more people started arriving and it was turning into a big Incubus party. There was plenty of beer, snacks, and freebies...there was even a free photo booth! Of course, I cannot resist photo booths, so Mike and I went for it~
We had waited for a long time, and it started getting late. It was actually an hour after the show was supposed to start. All of a sudden people started huddling around, and there were loud cheers...Incubus had arrived! Unfortunately, with bad news. Brandon regretfully informed us all that the rooftop had flooded, and that they had been waiting & waiting but the rain just wasn't stopping. They couldn't play for us. The guys in the band all looked pretty sad.
But, they made up for it by hanging out with us! I thought that was really cool, it truly was an Incubus party. I felt like a very fancy VIP person~ I didn't get pictures with all the guys, there were just too many people and it was too hard...but I did get this one, and it's a picture I've been waiting for since 2004 when I first met Brandon!
I'm so bummed that I didn't get to see Incubus play last night, but every time I look at this picture it makes me happy. It's a reminder that even though Incubus is a huge, famous rock band...they're still these real, chill guys. So cool!
More to come, the Incubus weekend is not over....
