I’ve been a fan of the band Franz Ferdinand for over 10 years and before this week began, I’d never met them or seen them in concert.  That changed as I was fortunate enough to attend a taping of “Live On Letterman” as well as going to a surprise DJ gig at Glasslands in Brooklyn which turned into a surprise concert by the Scottish rockers!  Although I enjoyed both nights, the energy of the band and crowd at Glasslands was on fire!

The guys were super cool and enjoyed chatting with fans after the show.  Hopefully they don’t burn out on that because it’s really awesome to see a hugely successful band be cool to their supporters.

In addition to taking photos, the guys signed my cds!  I took a photo of the autographed cds and posted it on Instagram and the band “liked” the photo!  How cool is that!  I’m “According2g” on Instagram if you want to see even more photos that I take when I am out and about on my adventures.  You won’t regret it!  🙂

Thanks again Franz Ferdinand and I am EXCITED for the release of “Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action,” which will be out in August 2013!

The mural on Bowery and Houston has changed again.  This time it is the art of Revok and Pose (who also have an exhibit at Jonathan Levine Gallery through the end of July 31, 2013).

See them both!

Several years ago, I had one of my worst encounters and unfortunately, it was with one of my favorites.  I am happy to report that 2 years on, all is forgiven.  All’s well that ends well.

An Encounter with Matthew Broderick

Bueller…  Bueller…

Though Matthew Broderick is best remembered for playing Ferris Bueller, I count “War Games” and “Election” amongst my top Matthew movies.  Mr. Sarah Jessica Parker (sorry, I couldn’t resist) is starring on Broadway in the play “Nice Work if You Can Get It” and that’s where I met the star.  He was very accommodating to fans and autograph seekers after the play was over, and according2g, that’s a winning combo!  Thanks Matthew!
