Some of you may know, I was at MGMT on Friday night in Calgary! Me and my cousin drove 8 hours from Saskatchewan because the Saskatoon show was 19+. So anyway,it was a mosh pit and I was pretty close to the front, like maybe an approximate guestimation of a semi sixth row. The show was amazing. Every song sounded exactly like it did on the record. They played two new songs as well, Mystery Disease and Your Life Is A Lie. After the show Andrew said the new album is coming out in August or something, which is pretty decent. Afterwards we stuck around and nobody was coming out at first by their buses. They all went straight into the buses and didn't come out. After maybe, like, half an hour or so James came out and started talking to everybody. He was so deadly! He was wearing these awesome Batman pants and these moccasins that he said he bought at Giant Tiger. He came and talked to everybody and he talked to me and my cousin for like 15 minutes. I asked him to draw Jerry Garcia on my 45 and he drew all this
I got my picture with him too
After him Andrew came out for a while! He started talking to these girls beside me and they were all being annoying fangirls that were like omg bb i luv u and i'm like...k... anyhwayzzz, these chicks ask me if I can take their picture, and I'm like "...sure." and I guess it was really bossy because Andrew started chuckling then he said "sure" in the same way and it was hilarious. I talked to him for a bit and he had a wicked Puffin on his touque, and he drew this on my 45
He said it was Ausgang inspired... I see it
I got my picture with him
It was awesome because we both did thumbs up at the exact same time. Definitely bros.
Matt came around after and signed my record and put a smiley face. He was soooo epic. He was wearing an inside out sweatshirt and i'm like "what's up with that" and he said "oh, there's a horse on the other side or something like that". Makes sense. He talked to my cousin for a while, and I told him that MGMT's music has changed my life, and he gave me a hug! :') We were the very last people there and Matt came walking up to us and was like "what are you guys still doing here" And we're just like saying how we wish Ben was there. Reflecting on that moment it was like that part in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, know what I mean? But yeah, that was probably the best day of my life, if not the top 4 or something.
sorry for the long postjk
