Last night I went to see my pal Open Mike Eagle at Barboza in Seattle. I don’t know that I’d ever been to Barboza before. It’s a little bar underneath Neumos. Anyhoo, it was a great show. Mike killed it as always. Here’s the obligatory animated .GIF that I made of the performance:

The place was plenty packed. My pal Travis was even there! And after the show there was a line of like 50 people waiting to get to Mike’s merch table. I had to go on account of a long drive back down to Tacoma on a school night, but Mike was nice enough to give me big ol’ hugs and chat for a minute, and take a selfie:

I missed him on his last tour (when he became the mayor of Ferndale), so it was good to see him again! He’s a <wypipo voice>real class act and just a swell fellow.</wypipo voice>

But enough about Mike. Something amazing happened to me that got me super hyped. I got to meet none other than the one and only…

VIDEO DAVE!

Check it:

Look how excited I am in that photo to be meeting such a celebrity! You might even say I’m “giddy.” It was so cool to meet him after admiring his work. Scroll back up and look at the animated .GIF of Mike, and look at the projections splashed across him and the background. That’s all Video Dave! Didn’t he do an amazing job!? I think Mike & Prolific & Sammus were way too hard on him before last night:

AAAAAA I’M STILL HYPE ABOUT MEETING HIM!

VIDEO DAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE!!!!!
