I worked so hard to get this photo! Let me just sit back and relish the moment for just one second before I tell you about meeting Florence Welch, lead singer of Florence and the Machine. Let me also point out that I was in the midst of a great hair day as well, in case it was not abundantly clear from the above photo. Ok. On November 2, 2010, Florence and the Machine were doing a somewhat secret surprise appearance at New York’s SoHo Apple Store. The deal was, you had to get a wrist band and then you could watch the performance – for free. I decided, I’d get a wrist band, meet her and then watch her perform. Two out of three things happened. I assumed I’d meet Florence long before her scheduled start time of 4 pm, but she arrived at the venue at 4:05, so by the time I was finished meeting her, the place was so packed, I couldn’t even see so I didn’t bother to stick around. I did get the chance to tell Florence how awesome she was the night before and she said “thanks.” And thanks again Florence! You rock!
