My dearest NXNE,
My feet hurt, my legs hurt, my throat hurts, my arms hurt, and worst of all, my head hurts, but I wouldn't change a thing because I just had one of my best weeks of my year.
I could say this pain is "all your fault" but in reality, it is the combination of you and me. When I'm with you, I feel like I'm having the best day ever, and I forget about eating, I forget I've been on my feet for 15 straight hours, and I forget about sleep. We make an excellent and dangerous team.
Together we discovered some great new bands that I look forward seeing again; bands like PUP, July Talk, and Pkew Pkew Pkew (gunshots). We had great times with bands like Camera and The Roseville Band that crossed an ocean to be here. We were fortunate enough to have fun with some of our already loved bands like The Ascot Royals, Boxer The Horse, Wildlife, The Dirty Nil, and Jane's Party. We saw some amazing daytime performances by bands like July Talk and Quiet Company at the wonderous and magical afternoon parties held by Universal and Audio Blood.
We met so many new and hilarious people at the Jägermeister party that I could just puke. Puke from happiness, of course.
We also connected with many of our old friends, often just by running into them. We shared drinks, laughs, sunshine, rain, and so much good music that the time just seemed to pass too quicky. I realize we can only be together once a year, but I love being inside you so much that I wish this didn't have to just be an annual love affair. I wish we could meet up more frequently, but I am aware that our time apart is one of the reasons our relationship is so special. So it is with heavy heart, sore feet, and a multi-day hangover that I say goodbye for this year. I am already preparing for your next visit and look forward to when we can be together once again. Until then, you will be in my dreams.
All my love,
