Big mushy post alert (spoiler, live music means the world to me) — Last night my friend and I decided to see another Arkells show on a whim. I didn't think much of it and I definitely didn't think it'd end up being one of my favourite nights ever...
It just feels so special when you bug a band to play your favourite deep cut, and not only do they play it but they shout you & your friend out by name, then carry on to deliver the most freakishly relevant little speech to your life at the moment. Isn't that quite the coincidence?
I don't always share these kinds of stories, but my life's been changing a lot as of this month and last night was the perfect boost I've needed, though I didn't know it going in.
Even from way in the back, I had the time of my life with one of my best friends.
Shout out to Arkells for not only being one of the best bands in Canada killing it right now, but for caring and taking care of us fans. I say it all the time, but people like them make me feel like the luckiest music fan. ❤️ —
Will I ever be able to listen to Crawling Through the Window again without getting a little emotional? I guess we'll find out
