Children Collide and meeting Redd1234
I dropped in at the Annandale Christmas party last Wednesday to check out Children Collide and take a couple of snaps (or 600) with my new camera! There was a whole bunch of supporting acts, although none particularly remarkable apart from Sticky Fingers, a young reggae/funk/rock/something five-piece.
Children Collide put on a killer of a show and pushed through some technical/sound difficulties. However, the highlight of my night was meeting none other than Redd1234.
Due to the fact that I am socially inept and have no friends, I decided to tackle the gig solo. This, coupled with nature's confidence booster, alcohol, encouraged all the straight men at the event to strike up a conversation with me after mistaking me for someone attractive through their beer goggles.
Eventually I found myself chatting with a lanky ranga (Can I say that? Well I did.) and as he was telling a story he quoted someone as saying "Redd, don't..." and I cut him off with "Your name's Redd? With one D or two?"
All at once I realised my mistake - revealing myself as a creep who stalks people on the internet. Thankfully, Redd was rather forgiving and even agreed to have a photo taken with me. We chatted for a while longer, naturally only about my obsession with JessieB. However, he now has a restraining order out against me and is missing a large chunk of his hair that I grabbed as he was walking away.
