How to have an adventure. Part 3.

1. You don't want the night to end.
You want to freeze this moment  
but it won't freeze.  
The night keeps moving, you're getting tired  
but you can't stop now.  
 
2. Cigarettes have become something you do  
when you're not sure what else to do.  
You're between bands.
You strike up another conversation with  
a hippy looking girl.
Turns out she's with one of the bands
that you just saw.  
She introduces you to the lead of the
band and you find out  
they're based not that far from home.  
He's like "hey" and gives you a hug.
Tells you he'll catch up with you later.  
 
3. You hit the merch desk again.  
You've already spent way too much money  
blown your meager savings  
but you don't really give a fuck.  
Two band t-shirts and 5 CDs later  
and you couldn't be more stoked.  
If you had more money  
you'd have bought one of everything  
on and behind the desk.  
 
4. Cigarette conversations  
are definitely a habit by now.  
You talk to the girl from behind the merch desk  
while out for a fix.  
She's got the coolest pink hair  
and you tell her about your disaster of a night.
She tells you that you can drop the bag  
you've been lugging around all night  
behind the merch desk where it'll be safe
and gives you her number just in case  
you get stuck between the end of the concert and 5am.  
In the end you don't need it  
but it makes you feel good to have the option.  
 
5. The feature band is on  
and you lose yourself in the music  
see the lead of Harlequin in the crowd  
and figure you should get a picture with the band  
before the end of the night.
 
6. You get pictures with two bands  
and  watch the end of the feature set  
trying not to feel apprehensive again  
that the rest of your night is unclear.
