More Guster…

I’ve already posted about the amazingness that was getting the chance to actually be a part of the band Guster for one song. You can read all about it here: http://lovelyrita-mm.com/2014/12/guster/

But I didn’t get the chance to post here about the next coolest part to singing with Guster.

The guy who after me got up on stage to sing “Demons” found me on Instagram and said: “You were awesome in singing and the review of the night agreed!” http://www.examiner.com/article/guster-previews-its-2015-album-with-a-private-show-at-the-w-hotel-s-rooftop-bar

Here’s what the review said about me/us:

I was floored. Mostly because I drove Doug crazy the entire weekend after needing reassurance that I did ok. (I mean, I have no idea really…) So to get this from a concert reviewer felt amazing. Really made my day, week, possibly life.

There was also this article with a nice pic of Rebecca, who got up on stage to sing X-ray Eyes along with Ryan which said:

“A trio of lucky concertgoers even had the opportunity to sing on-stage with the group (aided in no small part by cheers from the crowd and undoubtedly some liquid courage mixed-up by POV’s more-than-capable bar staff).”

Next, Ryan did an Ask Me Anything – and this happened:

I also didn’t get the chance to post anything else from the night really.

Doug and I metroed in, saw that we had plenty of time, ate dinner, and then headed back to the club. This was a Christmas window in Macy’s which we passed, which I thought was super cute:

This was the very nice view from the top floor of the W where the concert was. What a view!

The view overlooked the US Treasury – and right behind it is the White House:

The National Christmas Tree:

The Washington Monument and the Jefferson behind it:

We shared an “Adam” which was pure alcohol but tasty:
