Another cool thing about the show was that I got to run into the people I met at last year’s show, who were the reason I got backstage in the first place.
I started talking to the gentleman in the spiffy hat, and it turns out he’s friends with Nick and the band going way back, and he had an extra aftershow pass that night. We hadn’t exchanged any info then, but they remembered me, and that was pretty neat. For one thing, because one of them had a lot more photos from that night!
So now in addition to my photo with Nick himself, I get to have the photos of all of us hanging out with the Bad Seeds. I like these a lot because they’re so casual and really get across the overall feel of the evening, more than any posed shot. (I’m the chick with red hair in the cowl-neck sweater and beret.)
No extra passes this year, but ah well!
