The New Pornographer’s played a SoCal show about 8 or 9 years ago. Dan Bejar’s band, Destroyer, opened. Natural enough, I was familiar with the players, makes sense. I’m good. I’m having a cocktail and watching this fantastic opening band.
And I’m standing next to this little old lady. Kinda animated, kinda fantastic too. After the set I say to her: “So what did you think of the band?”
“Oh, that’s my son.”
Now, Dan Bejar is from Canada. That’s a long way from Orange County, Ca. I’m still not sure it really happened. It’s just too weird. But I replied, “He was fantastic, well done, mom.”
No, that really did happen. You met a rock star. Do tell!
