(posted when I was 23 years old.)
In search of sunshine and fun, Branden and I happened upon north quad just as OK Go, a Chicago band, took to the stage. So we sat down and listened to the music. It was really good. The band was funny, too, they kept trying to get people to do things for free CDs, but ND kids are, well, lame. So people just kept walking by for the most part. Branden and I moshed to a couple songs. The lead singer pointed out he was pretty sure nobody had ever moshed to the song they'd just played before. Hope showed up as well. She got up on stage and sang some stuff in exchange for free CDs. I bought both the CDs they had, because I'm a sucker for music. And they were cheap. I got the band to sign the one CD afterwards. One guy dedicated his signature "Pete, my best friend at Notre Dame" ... there was very little crowd. I think there were about a dozen of us. Half the crowd was OK Go fans that had come from out of town. I had George, their merchandise guy, sign the other CD I bought. Because he was fun, too. My autographed CD will be valuable soon. OK Go signed a deal with Capital Records and will have an album out with them this summer. Woo! And I got stickers!
