kemp & eden (feat. sean lennon)


Kemp & Eden played at The Living Room on our last day in New York. I foolishly forgot to bring I.D and was refused entry into the venue. While Alex and I were standing on the street discussing how this was a pathetic end to our trip, Sean Lennon was chatting with a photographer behind me. Alex suggested that I ask Sean to help me get in, since he was performing that evening. Considering that I didn't have the nerve to even say hi to him the last time he stood next to us at a show, I surprised myself by telling him my sad story. He was really cool about it and asked to get "my friend, Mina" in - I'm not deluded about the extent of our relationship (or lack thereof) but !!!! anyway. 

The entire night, the owner/bartender kept coming up to Alex and telling him to make sure that his "underage girlfriend" doesn't drink. I was pretty pleased that someone actually thought I was under 21 but I don't think that Alex was amused. - Mina
