Brooklyn, NY - 11/4/14
November 4th, 2014 may go down as the peak of my life. If you are lucky to experience Watsky live, do it - but be warned, the experience may spoil you for other concerts.
I won’t forget meeting him beforehand and him giving out throwback posters and signing them. I won’t forget the kindness of the opening acts and the staff. I won’t forget that one moment where he held my hand for a good 30 seconds as the sea of people around me crowded over to get a touch (although I was so enchanted, I forgot what song he was doing at the time!) and I will DEFINITELY never forget the hug he gave me after the show as he profusely thanked me for being there and supporting him from the beginning.
As I was telling him about this being my first concert, a nearby fan said “Welcome to the addiction.” For about two weeks afterward, I understood what she meant, as I went through such a awful withdrawal. I will see him again if he comes back to NYC next year, and every year after that if I have to, because he means that much to me.
