Flashback Friday: Incubus

This is probably going to be my last Flashback Friday until we get our stuff out of storage so I can find some really old photos!

One benefit to living in Southern California is a lot of cool things happen out there and a lot of awesome bands call the state home. In July of 2011 Incubus (my favorite band EVER, since I was about 17, don't judge!) was gearing up to release their album, If Not Now When? and embark on a tour to promote the new album. In preparation for their tour, the band set up a rehearsal studio in L.A. and opened it up to fans. In order to stop by fans had to reserve a time slot online. So, I did that for Rob and myself.

It was a long, hot, stand-around-and-wait kind of day but it was totally worth it in the end because we were able to attend the private concert by the band that night! There were only a few hundred people, if that and we were only about 20 feet away from the band. It was very intimate and completely awesome! After the rehearsal most of the band members stuck around to talk with and meet fans so we met a few of the guys which was also awesome!!

    1. I wanted to see them with Linkin Park, they were playing in San Diego and L.A. and I would have been happy to go to either place but we didn't go. I think my husband couldn't get days off work or something, since that would be the only justifiable reason for missing it!! :)

      That picture of us is the result of standing out in the July sun for hours and then sweating some more inside an un-air conditioned building for another few hours! lol
