I am going to the very last gig of The Streets at Big Reunion, the 2nd weekend. It will be my 35th Streets gig but the last one. I am not too sad, because I am very excited about whatever Mike is going to do next.
I woke up at about 7am, got the bus to the airport at 7.50. Arrived at the airport at 8.20. Got a Starbucks at the airport and at 8.45 my train left to Rotterdam. Ozzy would pick me up there. We are going to Paris.
It was a last minute add to their tour. They were replacing Q-tip. I found out last week on Sunday that they would be playing there. On Monday Ted arranged it for us. Thanks Ted! Again! We’ve been to this festival in 2008 as well.
I took the nightbus to work. I had to work at Starbucks first, from 6am till 12.30pm. When I finished Ozzy was there to pick me up. (I gave him a coffee, easy when you work at Starbucks). We drove to my house, I got freshen up and changed. Off we go to Pukkelpop.
At 9 in the morning, we checked out and put our luggage in the van, also Jamie‘s and Shep‘s…. They didn’t travel with us, they had a plane to catch. 7 hours drive to go to Orange vale…. Poor Ozzy was driving a very long boring trip and the ladies (all 3 of us) slept the whole trip).
We heard on the After show last night that the boys were staying at the same hotel as we did. NICE! We didn’t see them though. Anyway… time to go to LA…
We arrived pretty early…. Rachel dropped Emma off and went to her own hotel/motel/hostel. We were staying in the Wilshire Plaza hotel on Wilshire Boulevard. We checked in. The guy from the reception lied to the ladies. He told them that they had the best room with the best view. They were looking at Downtown LA. I believe that Ozzy & I had a better room. We had a view at the Hollywood Hills.
On Twitter, Mike wrote he was looking for the hotel. Rachel told him how to get there. We had breakfast, Emma, Emma & Rachel joined us. They didn’t have breakfast, but they were sitting next to us. It wasn’t a normal breakfast with cereal, pancakes, donuts, bagels or waffles, but we had to make our own cheeseburger. Not sure if I like this for breakfast.
