When I Am Filled with Music

Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music.
— George Eliot

Some weeks ago Karin, Sid's best friend Rosie's mother, called B and told him that Roo and Sid wanted to see a concert but that she didn't wanna take them and would I be interested in going instead. She explained that it was a show called POPTOPIA and the performers would be as follows:

  • Taylor Swift
  • Ed Sheeran
  • The Chainsmokers
  • Fifth Harmony
  • Dua Lipa
  • Niall Horan
  • Khalid
  • Logic 

"Um, yes absolutely I guess I can do her this super massive favor and see a bunch of incredible artists perform songs that I adore," was my exact reply.

So last night Roo, Sid, Will and I took the Caltrain south to the SAP Center in San José to watch the aforementioned musical artists perform music.

Because he's a kween, Bevan made a phone call and somehow got the four of us backstage before the show for a little meet and greet with Dua Lipa who's responsible for Dua Lipa, my third favorite album of 2017 (behind P!nk's Beautiful Trauma and Ed Sheeran's Divide, respectively).

Dua Lipa was incredibly sweet and said nice things about Roo and Sid and also unintentionally made me never want to bare my abs in public again.

The concert itself was grand, partly because I knew almost every song and partly because I saw said songs performed from the second freakin' row. 

The best part of the evening, in addition to all of the other best parts (there were quite a few), was calling Kelly on FaceTime to have her listen to Ed Sheeran perform "Perfect" while she folded laundry at her house.
