My friend Ean has been staying at my place and we went to the concert tonight and it was great.
We were right at the front and I got my exercise. It was very inspiring and I was composing Kabuki panels in my head to the music.
Ean and I bought the new CD and the group was signing it for us right when something funny happened.
A hardcore J-5 fan with a Charlie the Tuna shirt that had already been previously signed by 2Na at several other concerts, goes "Holy sh*t, it’s David Mack."
Right as 2Na was signing my CD.
2Na was about to sign his shirt, but the guy was a little drunk and would not be stopped. He was like, "No sh*t, 2Na, for real, this is the David Mack that does the Kabuki comic."
This guy had met me at a convention over ten years ago. The guy really gave me a killer introduction completely by accident.
Then 2Na said, "You do Kabuki? Really?" and he said he reads Kabuki and that he buys them at Golden Apple in LA.
He said he wanted to do comics and that he was a painter and that it would be cool if we did something together.
He said he was serious and I suggested it would be cool to do some kind of hip-hop comics art tie-in.
He was very cool and I know he used to be into graffiti. I’m looking forward to seeing his art.
The entire group was personable and positive and the show was very, very cool.
