I’m one of those people who can fall asleep anywhere if I’m tired enough. I guess that comes from being the youngest of four kids and being used to plenty of noise. I’ve fallen asleep in cars, buses, hospital waiting rooms, classrooms (of course) and this past summer I added concerts to the list.
After a long day of listening to bands outside during FYF, I had to curl up on a blanket and get some shut eye. I rested while My Bloody Valentine played, which I felt bad about because they’re one of my boyfriend’s favorite bands. Then I ended up losing my glasses. Karma, maybe? Hmm. No, that doesn’t make sense. I wasn’t hurting anyone. I just need to be more careful about setting down my glasses while napping.
Next up, I crashed during Outkast’s set at Coachella. That was the same situation as FYF. I was curled in a ball on a blanket at a big, long outdoor concert. I missed Usher’s guest performance, so that was a bit of a bummer.
More recently, I was mostly successful in staying awake at a Tycho show. Paul and I won tickets to the show from KCRW. Thanks favorite radio station! I appreciated it, honest. I just stayed up too late the night before and forgot that sometimes I just can’t hang. Same thing happened when we saw DIIV at the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock. I was awake enough to get pictures of the last one at least. (See below.)
Tomorrow night I’m going to see Panda Bear with my boyfriend in LA. I promise myself I won’t stay up late tonight and hopefully I won’t be tempted to get any shut eye during the show because I’ll definitely regret that later.
Tell me, have you fallen asleep anywhere weird?
