Smoking weed with pond and mgmt
Okay so I can’t really fangirl over this on twitter or instgram because mgmt follows me so I’m going to write about it here. Tonight was surreal.
I went out on a limb and decided to try to see pond at this record store in Brooklyn even though it was 21+. My friends Veronica and Sandra who are also under 21 came along, and by some chance of lucky we got in. Pond was amazing — I think they sounded even better than on Wednesday. Most of the songs they played were from their new album.
As we were leaving, I see Will Berman from MGMT at the the bar. He told me he was going to be there so I wasn’t too surprised. I went over and said hi and it was so casual it actually felt like we were friends or something. I mean, we follow each other on Instagram so I guess we’re kinda acquaintances now?
My friends and I stayed outside to smoke for a while. Next thing you know, I’m smoking weed with half of MGMT and POND.
It started when Joe from Pond came over and talked to us. I still can’t believe he came to us, not the other way around. Then Ben fucking Goldwasser came. Then Will joined along with his gf Alix Brown (who by the way, is intimidating as fuck), and last to join the group was Jay Watson of Pond and Tame Impala.
I asked Jay if GUM was having any shows in NYC and he said maybe next year. Then we had a weird sort of dialogue:
Jay: oh, I’m Jay by the way. I feel like we’ve met before
me: yeah I’ve met you twice
Sandra: on Wednesday!
Jay: what was your name? Me: Alexa Jay: oh yeah, well I’m going inside to get a beverage I’ll be back *doesnt Come back*
And he leaves. First of all, when I met him on Wednesday, he said he remembered me. And today he acted like he vaguely remembered me but not really. Maybe it was just a way to get my name? and also, why did he leave so quickly??? wtf Jay. Maybe it’s cause I dyed my hair black and the other two times I’ve met him I’ve been a ginger?! Idk.
Anyway, it was all kinda weird and kind of cool. Joe was so cool and down to earth. Will acted a lil weird when he was around Alix. I have a feeling he likes my friends and I (in a friendly sense) but I hope I didn’t come off as stalkerish or too groupie-like. Hanging out with them kinda made me feel like it.
At the end, Joe invited us to go to this place (bar/venue) with them but again (will invited us to go to bar last week) it was 21.
So that was my night. Now I’m waiting for the subway next to a sleeping guy in aqua pants and a fur coat.
New York, I love you
