INXS in Berkeley

I saw INXS perform a few weeks back in Berkeley, California. It was a great experience.

When I arrived at will call to pick up my aftershow passes, there was a slight mix up, so the will call people called down to backstage to see if I was "in". They got the word, and not only did I get my aftershow passes, but a pair of second row seats! I already had some seats (not nearly as good) so this was an unexpected bonus.

I went with my new girlfriend. I told her I was friends with the band, but I don't think she realized that I really knew them. During the concert, while I was jumping up in down to the music, the guys in the band would acknowledge me as they saw me. First Kirk, then Gary, and then JD.

After the show we went backstage. Kirk apologized for the mix-up, to which I replied I wished there were more mix-ups like that. He apologized for not being able to make it to my BBQ I was having the next day. They were letting some small thing like a show in Sacramento get in the way. We also talked to Tim, who also apologized for not making the BBQ, and said he would miss the chicken salad and deserts. He knew about the salad and deserts from other people on the eVite telling what they would bring. We also talked to Andrew and JD a bit. JD looked like he was in a lot of pain since he sprained his leg or pulled something a couple weeks before. You'd never know it from his performance.

My girlfriend Stacie took home a radish from the catering table as a souvenir.

JAV's GF here. JD is a really nice guy! Very sincere, spoke with us for a bit early on and congratulated us on our 4 months of dating as he saw us leaving... As in he actually hollered "Hey Guys! Congratulations on the 4 months." across the room to us as we made our way towards the door. When JAV told him that I had listened to "Afterglow" like 8o something times in a row after purchasing it on itunes, he clasped my hand, looked deep into my eyes and thanked me so sincerely even JAV was kind of shocked.

All in all? The whole band was really nice. It was a blast!
