Today’s happy thing: Seeing the lovely and wonderful 손지연 at 제비다방. She made me cry in the wonderful way only good music can do. (I had to watch from a screen upstairs because the basement was full by the time I arrived because I’m incapable of being on time anywhere.) I nearly didn’t go in because of the anxiety issues involved with going alone, late, to a crowded, hipster-y cafe/bar for the first time. (I may or may not have walked past the doorway 2-3 times before I made it inside.) Luckily, there’s nothing a giant mug of beer consumed immediately upon your arrival can’t solve.
I missed her solo concert (with 강산에! KANG SAN-AE!) last year because of my super lame ex-boyfriend. I’ve learned my lesson. Never miss 손지연 (or any singer/band/show) because of a dude. Even if that dude is your boyfriend. (ESPECIALLY if that dude is your boyfriend.)
