DUDE. You guys you gius u guise you guys! I just saw Hey Ocean! (don't know? link ---> www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTk6eY… ) First off, Hey Ocean is phenomenal. Their sound is amazing and they deserve all the love & recognition in the world. Second, we were at a super small venue. Sitting in the front, Ashleigh Ball is smack dab in front of me, like 20ft away. So I'm, on the inside, freaking and trying to play it cool by not staring at her the whole time their playing.
Get this, their songs are super upbeat, yeah? So they invite us all to dance around like fools and FREAKING ASHLEIGH FREAKING BALL DANCED WITH US.
Obviously I could've died happy right then and there.
There were some moments throughout the night where she, David Vertesi and David Beckingham would talk to us between songs, so again, super pumped up about that.
And then after it was all said and done, they did a meet and greet. Of course, we were so lucky to hang out with these guys. And surprisingly enough, I actually didn't bring up ponies. This was for Hey Ocean! So we were talking about the music, how they got started, all that jazz.
And then Ashleigh pops the question, "How'd you hear about us."
I, of course, was wearing my AJ tee, and admitted my bronyhood. Ashleigh came back at me with some awesome convo about MLP. So yes, I was chatting it up with Ashleigh Ball about My Little Pony.
(drops mic, off stage, I'm done here)
So because of this, if you're still with me at this point, I am working on a simple drawing inspired by said events. It'll be up soon I hope!
