So I really did this last Monday, but is anyone really counting?
I am a non-Twitter-er. Therefore, I speak and write in sentences longer than 140 characters. I don't really understand the point of Twitter or the fascination people have with it since we have facebook, blogs, text messages, etc. However, my friend Jenny loves her Twitter, she has a job that allows her to peruse Twitter all day long, among other things of course. Last week, Jenny won tickets to a concert through Twitter. I've never won tickets to a concert from facebook, or a blog, or a text message, so in this case Twitter wins.
Back to the concert.
She won VIP tickets to see the Silversun Pickups, Live on Letterman, at the Ed Sullivan Theater. She invited me. I agreed, even though I didn't know a lot of their music. We went. We sat in the front row. We were live broadcasted on the internet. My sister got to see us on her computer. We danced (or bopped), sang (or pretended to), and listened to some awesome music. Then the show ended. Jenny got a set list. We went home. Awesome night!
Here are some pics:
Outside with our tickets in the VIP line!
The stage from our seats! So freaking close!
The band! They were amazing!
The set list!
and in case you are interested, here is the link to see the entire concert that was broadcast online! They show my friend and I a few times, but you can clearly find me around the 12:45 mark.
