Malcolm & Me, or, Standing outside a sold-out Justice show with money in my hand
I was wistfully YouTubing Justice today after missing the French electro-dance duo at Denver's Ogden Theatre last Saturday night. After misunderestimating my ability to finagle my name onto the list, I found myself standing on a street corner in the snow, talking to a homeless man named Malcolm who was trying to hustle a few tickets. Malcolm tried to find me something but I wasn't willing to drop sixty bucks. It was a sad hour in Fuel/Friends history. It's okay, though, because I probably wasn't dressed nearly hip enough - no faux-ironic neon, no skinny jeans, no '80s pastel Reeboks.
But when I came across this video, I reconsidered my wanton frugality; did Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, Rick James, Stevie Wonder and Prince all possibly appear at the Denver show? Now I shall never know.
A girl can dream. This is all kinds of awesome.
