Just a cool story (I think) that I wanted to share.
Im a big fan of Reggie Watts but never seen him live, so I was delighted to see he was playing Whelans on the 21st Jan. Of course, being stone broke after Xmas it was only the week of the gig that I had money to get tickets . . . By which time it was totally sold out.
So the day before the gig, after searching gumtree, buy&sell etc & coming up empty... as a last resort I went on the twitter machine and put up a desparate plea for any spare tickets for sale. Didn't think Id get any replys . . .But checked back a couple of hours later...
& Lo & Behold! I did get a reply!! Not from someone wanting to sell a ticket but from Reggie himself saying he had seen my tweet & was putting me +1 on the guestlist!!
Thought it was a really cool & nice thing to do, spoke to him briefly after his set to thank him and he was really nice & sound. Oh,.. & the gig was hilarious too!
