About a year and a half ago a woman messaged me on my artist Facebook page that she was a new fan. We began to chat, she lived in NYC is a musician etc. We were chatting for a while before I looked her up and realized she was not just any musician, but a famous one at that. We developed a friendship via Facebook and Instagram, we had some common friends, and some other life commonalities. We had never met in person until one night when she played in Seattle and I was out in the crowd. She told this same story on stage which was kind of awesome, and it was so great to finally meet one another in "real" life. I think her tour was called Stories and Songs so she told a lot of stories that night, I just happened to be in one of them. As the set was coming to an end she says, "Just so you know I don't do encores. I am going to play this song and then one more and then I'm going to walk off the stage." My husband and I are sitting there slapping each other because that is my thing. I HATE encores. I think they are weird. I get it, kind of, more so that the audience loves it. But really, it's just so awkward. The musician (s) finish a song, leave the stage, knowing they are going to come back on to play another song or two or three, but not until everyone cheers and chants for them. Get over yourself. Yep, I said it. However, if you are gonna do it, you better make it good. Like really, really good.
