Sigh. Why Blind Pilot?
1. Sad music makes me happy + it’s not that it’s even sad, really just so good my heart hurts.
2. We saw them play a small show in New York a while back. The band hung around at the bar after + we almost said some words to them. They were nice when no sound came out.
Blind Pilot played Williamsburg last night. Since Noelle couldn’t be there to hear her favorite song, I thought I’d be amazing at her + record it. Watch this little clip to see how my plan is lovingly destroyed.
If you listen closely towards the end, that’s me saying “I’m going to cry.”
They continued to break my heart, carrying their instruments off stage + standing with the audience, unplugged. The audience then sat down to listen. Sat. Down. First ones to do so on this tour. It was beautiful!!
When they finished playing, I snapped this. Sneak attack!
So that’s my memory of a great show by one of my favorite bands. With no recording, it’ll be amazing for as long as I remember it.
