Today I went up to the Borders in Columbus Circle to see one of my new favorite musical artists perform – A Fine Frenzy. I’m realizing how cool it is to be a fan before a musical artist makes it big. You get to go to neat things like free performances and signings at bookstores. She played five songs, which is almost as many as they let opening bands play now anyway, and I was sitting in a comfy red armchair in the front row. And I got to meet her, have my CD signed, and also go home with a signed poster, a fun little booklet interview thing, and two sheets of stickers. Awesome. When I went to see John Mayer and Ben Folds I had to pay $30 for a t-shirt.
