It's just you and I tonight, why don't you figure my heart out?

Me and Matt Healy - the leadsinger of The 1975

Sidste torsdag spillede det britiske band The 1975 på Loppen på Christiania. Mine veninder Sara, Stine og jeg ville vildt gerne se koncerten, men der var desværre udsolgt da vi fandt ud af at de kom til Danmark. I stedet besluttede vi os for at tage ud og fange dem omkring deres lydprøve, men endte med at hænge ud på Christiania indtil sent ud på natten. Bandet sad og hyggede sig med "chocolate" indenfor, alt imens at vi pludselig endte på deres gæsteliste til aftenens koncert, da vi blev kontaktet på Twitter. Vi besluttede derfor bare at hænge ud, og mødte således tre af medlemmerne før koncerten, mens forsangeren Matt først kom ud efter showet. Det var en kold dag, men i godt selskab var den alligevel rimelig grinern. Vi fik taget billeder med bandet, fik signeret vores albums, fik raget på vores favoritter (hej, George!), snakket med Matt, hygget med bassisten Ross, som jeg på rigtig Rikke-maner fik svinet til, og som tilgengæld komplimenterede mine støvler (kudos!) - og ikke mindst fik vi set en superfed og rimelig intim koncert, og kan forevigt blære os med at have været på bandets gæsteliste. Hvis I endnu ikke har hørt om dem, så start med deres hits "Chocolate", "Sex" og "Girls". Indenfor det næste år stikker det helt af for dem - i England og USA spiller de allerede shows for 5000 mennesker, og er nødt til at have bodyguards, fortalte Matt. Som I nok kan regne ud, fordrev vi noget af ventetiden med at tage billeder, og her får I derfor mit meget casual outfit. Jeg er helt vild med min skotskternede jakke, som jeg købte i London, men det er allerede næsten for koldt at have den på. Jeg prøver at få det meste ud af den i løbet af de næste par uger, men så ryger den nok ind i skabet indtil foråret melder sin ankomst. Heldigvis holder det skotskternede et par sæsoner endnu! Er der nogle kunstnere eller bands, som I fangirler lidt over og gerne ville møde?

Last Thursday the british band The 1975 played a gig in Copenhagen. My friends Sara, Stine and I really wanted to attend, but it was already sold out once we learned that they were coming to Denmark. We decided to try and meet them around soundcheck instead, and ended up hanging out around the venue until late at night. The band was cozy inside with their "chocolate", while we all of a sudden ended up on their personal guestlist for the show, as we were contacted on Twitter. We decided then to stick around, and met 3 of the members before the concert, while the leadsinger Matt didn't come out until afterwards. It was a very cold day, but in good company it was fun. We had our pictures taken, got our albums signed, groped our favourites (hello George!), chatted with Matt and hung out with the bassplayer Ross, who I in true Rikke-style ended up insulting, while he on the other hand complimented me on my boots (kudos!) - and of course we got to see an amazing and quite intimate gig, and can forever say that we were on the band's guestlist that night. If you still haven't heard about them, I'd recommend to start with their hits "Chocolate", "Sex" and "Girls". Their career will take off for sure within the next year - in the UK and the US they are already playing for 5000 people a night, and have to have bodyguards, as Matt told us. As you can guess we spent the waiting part of the day taking pictures, and that's why I can now post my very casual outfit. I love my tartan jacket that I bought in London, but it's almost too cold to wear it already. I'll try and make the most of it in the next couple of weeks, but then it'll probably end up in the closet until spring. Luckily the tartan trend will stay put for a few more seasons! Are there any artists or band that you're fangirling over a bit, and would like to meet?

  2. Hi Rikke,

    I'm a quiet personal admirer since a pretty long time. I love your blog, your looks and your personality. This one is my favorite.

    Keep going!
