Mid March in the United States, many americans Celebrate Saint Patrick who is the most generally recognized patron saint of Ireland.
I don’t know what happened along the way that turned this celebration into a green drunken shitshow, But I enjoy how multicultural it’s become, Asians, in green Mardi Gras beads, I saw a Rastafarian in a neon green leprachaun hat, An Arab in a green turban, and droves of the drunkest, most pasty white people dressed in shamrocks I had ever witnessed. A stumbling parade of green excess…
I opted out of the regular festivities, and went and hung out with Elton John.
Not really, but a friend needed some help doing some stagehand work at the coliseum, unloading the stage, and gear…
Kenny, Henny and I went early, and snuck in behind the sound guy, right as Rocket man started… It was awesome, you should have seen how stoked these kooks were.
Later that night, I got to hang out, and literally take apart Elton John’s piano and put it in a 10 foot wide case, hustle sound equipment, and the ride BMX bikes safely through the streets at 1:30 in the morning…after all the drunken motorists were safely passed out.
