Saturday Night On Hollywood Blvd With Music Legends Erasure! Andy Bell! Vince Clarke! Hookers! Drunken Fans! AKA A Typical Hollywood Night!

“Drunks, and Hookers and Bears oh my!” Yep, or as I like to call it, “My night on Hollywood Blvd at 1 in the morning waiting for Erasure.” Now normally when I wait for an artist after a show I go to the concert bring my stuff and then wait to try and meet them after. Today however, I was supposed to get tickets and then they fell though… DOH! Yeah, so I was bummed for most of the evening, then I popped in Clue: The Movie and I was happy again…

So, happy in fact I grabbed my Erasure stuff and headed out to Hollywood to try and meet the band. I have to cut my losses right? After all they are only touring like every 5 years, so it’s not like they are here everyday! Erasure has been a staple of my musical diet for years, I mean like back in the 90’s my friend Vanessa and I would dance and just be silly listening to their synch pop tunes… Especially “I Love To Hate You.” So, what’s a couple hours whoring myself out on the Blvd? lol…

11:31 p.m. – I just arrived and I can hear the band performing “Oh Lamour” sigh… I so wish I could have gone. Damn life and society in general. Ah well… I did get to pass two drunk homeless man pissing on themelves on the walk over here, so at least I have a story to tell mom.

11:34 p.m. – The show has ended and it looks like the crowd is dispersing… I have to figure out where the hell to stand. I keep texting Scotty and he’s trying to guide me but I’m directionally challenged so it’s like directing a blind giant using Braille.

11:35 p.m. – Okay that wasn’t that bad… I found it! There are only a couple people here… Well… Scratch that, there’s like 15 people here now…

11:41 p.m. – Some woman from the concert venue is trying to make us stand halfway down the sidewalk. However, a young lady named Dawna is policing the line, and says “No, this is a public sidewalk not your property and you can’t make us move.” Wow, we won that fight. Lol…

11:59 p.m. – There are way more people waiting for the band then I thought there would be. It’s kind of shocking. You just never know when you have a band like Erasure. They have been around for years but their audience tends to skew older, but hey they have passionate fans!

12:08 a.m. – Since my regular cohorts are not out tonight, I’m alone. But honestly, sometimes it’s nice to not have to deal with the craziness of people you know.

12:16 a.m. – Oh Lord, security just wheeled out a drunk guy from the stage door sitting in an office chair puking into a garbage can… Wow… That’s… That’s… Gross…

12:19 a.m. – I don’t think I’ve ever been that drunk… wait…nope, never…

12:34 a.m. – They just wheeled the dude out again and threw him into a limo… lol… God bless people!

12:43 a.m. – The line is thinning out… Which is good…

12:56 a.m. – Oh great two coked up hookers are now coming over to the line of people. Girls, Erasure is not a band that will appreciate your coked out sluttiness…

1:12 a.m. – Wow, these hookers are persistent! One is dressed in bright pink with this strange skirt kinda thing… huh… If I was going to be a hooker, I would be a high end hooker. To be a high end hooker avoid bright pink. I’m just saying.

1:23 a.m. – Now the road crew is taking pictures of the hookers performing makeshift sex acts on each other on the sidewalk… The things that happen at one a.m. on Hollywood Blvd.

1:34 a.m. – Okay, now the people in the club are telling us that the band and everyone has left. Ummmm… I don’t buy it. These guys just want to go home and will say anything to get us to go away…

1:41 a.m. – A few of us checked the back of the venue but it doesn’t seem likely they left that way…

1:45 a.m. – So, I’m back in the line… And getting tired…

1:52 a.m. – Oh crap, there’s Andy Bell walking out of the theatre. I ask Andy if he would mind signing and he comes right on over… Everyone comes up and Andy is just signing up a storm.
