in 2006 on the first impressions tour, i was about 19 and lived with my parents and spent my days smoking alot of pot and sleeping with girls that were still in high schol.
i punched some kid over the summer so i had court fines that i payed over time and they were down to about 70$. the morning of the strokes show my uncle gave me 100 $ dollars to go and pay the last of my fines off.
instead of paying the fines i used that money to go see the strokes knowing that i would have a warrant out for my arrest if I didnt pay. I stood in line for about 6 hours on a fucking terribly over-cast cold and windy chicago day. (it was so cold i literally couldnt feel parts of my body) so I was front row for the strokes and they killed it like they always do
the next day when i got back to my hometown i was driving around with my friend. it was a small town so the cops knew exactly who I was...they pulled us over seconds after seeing me driving and pulled me out of the car and took me to jail on a warrant for failure to appear in court.
saturday night i was front row for the strokes...sunday afternoon i was sitting in jail......so to the strokes...you have real people listening and appreciating your music...dont let the indie snobs, critics, and 15 yr old girls bring you down.
I would do it all again if I had to. You changed modern music for the better.
