Dear Future Hubby,
Now this would be considered a cute meet cute, so please take notes, make flashcards, write notes in your TI-83 calculator text section, have a nice little late night cram session with a pack of Red Bulls because you could earn some serious points for this little number.
The Swell Season is coming to town and tickets go on sale this weekend.
Yes. I know. Don’t get so freaking excited and jump up and down like little a school girl at a Justin Bieber concert. But honestly, The Swell Season IS like Bieber for me. Ever since Once and the formation of The Swell Season, they have quickly become my favorite group. I could listen to Strict Joy for hours on end and not get bored. And when TV shows and movies feature their songs, yeah, I’m not going to lie, I get all fangirl. Plain and simple, they rock.
So this July, they are coming to the Hollywood Bowl and if I’m not down in San Diego yet working on Comic-Con, I sure as hell plan on being there. It’s bound to be an amazing night. Not only is it my favorite band BUT I’ve also never been to the Bowl. I mean, part of me wanted my first Bowl experience to be the sing-a-long Sound of Music because really, how hilariously awesome does that sound, plus people dress up. But when TSS announced they were playing there, Maria and Capt von Trapp totally got the boot.
This got me to thinking though how a TSS Hollywood Bowl show would be an amazing meet cute for the soul fact that I would forgive anything weird or random that happens that evening because we’re at a TSS concert. So here are some option for you, incase you want to go all stalker and meet me there.
Option 1: You some how figure out where my seats are and buy the seat next to me. You can even pack a picnic and a bottle of wine and surprise me. Plus, when I see that you’ve come alone to a TSS show, I’ll be so taken aback with how “sensitive” you seem and that you are manly enough to show up to a TSS show by yourself, that I’ll totally fall for you.
Option 2: You bum rush the stage during When Your Mind’s Made Up (my favorite song, by the way) and interrupt Glen and Marketa to profess your love for me. Then, once the crew has found me in the audience with a follow spot, you’ll rush through the crowd to find me like tennis players do after they win a Grand Slam and we’ll live happily ever after while the guys politely applaud and the girls are crying because it’s so romantic. This will also help with Gaelic Gala as Glen and Marketa will totally remember this event when we ask them to play the rehearsal dinner.
Option 3: Ok, so this option actually isn’t a meet cute, but more a cute proposal following a meet cute. This means you’d have to some how meet me prior to the concert, win me over, make me fall in love with you, and then pop the question at The Swell Season. However, I’m not really down for dating for a month or two and then getting engaged, so you’re some how going to have to convince them to come back and play LA again in like a year after you’ve sufficiently proven yourself.
So this is your mission if you choose to accept it. I’ll let you know when I’ve bought my tickets and where exactly we’re sitting, incase any of these options sound do-able for you.
If not though, don’t stress, as The Swell Season is from Ireland after all and they’ve probably got some hot Irish roadies backstage I can shamelessly hit on. Again, that accent thing is really appealing.
