so myself, Lupe (the super intern) and P (the Green P, not Skateboard P) made our way into Livestock for the N.E.R.D meet n greet. apparently there was a line-up of loyal fans outside from 9am... i remember when i was a teenager, i used to wait in those lines for hours to meet various boy bands haha (shout outs to the Livestock crew for their hospitality and bypass!!)
a lot of boys... and a lot of BBC!
eventually Pharrell and Shae showed up (fashionably late, of course) and strolled around the store checking out the shoes & gear... then they pulled up a chair to get down to business. i was nervous as hell for some reason and drew a complete blank when i got up for my turn... and it went something like this:
*hands over "In Search Of..." album*
*Pharrell signs album... slides it back over to me. blank stare*
me: umm... thanks!
*walk away awkwardly*
that was it. P got a little more shine from Shae for her "I Heart..." TBG shirt (look for that this Winter!) but didn't really get much out of it either. but i guess you can't expect much from a meet and greet anyways? i wasn't really greeted, IF you wanna get technical... but this is coming from the guys who made one of my fav albums of all time, so i guess i forgive 'em. i GUESS...
killa & P!

as for the concert... N.E.R.D went on first and proceeded to preform tracks mostly from their new album, "Seeing Sounds". makes sense, but i think we were all left feeling a little bummed when the only tracks from the 1st album played were "Brain", "Rockstar" and "Lapdance". maybe that explained why the crowd wasn't that hype?
anyhoo... my top 3 tracks for the night:
-You Know What (my fave off "Seeing Sounds")
and... i'm not much of a Common fan, so the latter part of the show was kind of a bore to me, no disrespect intended...
my sidekicks for the last half of the show... Eeyore fell asleep standing up and Safari and i sent eachother gay (literally) texts! hahahaha
