I took my 16 year old nephew and two of my adult friends to the outdoor HW Bowl last night to see LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire. We had a "box" which is a small enclosure for 4 seats with a built in table. Wine bottles and box dinners welcome.
During the set break, 2 cute teenage girls poached an empty box in front of us. Eventually the people showed up who belonged there and they booted the chicas. I immediately grabbed 'em and told them to sit with us. My two buddies had gone to get food but I told the girls no one was using our other 2 seats. The girls turned out to be the same age as my nephew (eeks!) and immediately hit it off. My work here is done. So I left my seat, found my buddies and told them we had to stall and stand for a while and let the kid work it. He came through, got digits, and we later returned to the box and the three kids took off to walk around together. All was good under the bright half-moon.
LCD and Arcade Fire were pretty freakin' good. Arcade Fire puts so much energy into their set it seems they could power their own amps with human wattage. If that's possible. I'm not sure if it is. Someone look into that.
Bonuses inlcuded Rainn "Dwight Schrute" Wilson and his wife rocking out next to us during the show and talking to Arcade singer Win Butler backstage afterwards. The kid was stoked... Uncle Wingman delivered.
