Last night I went and saw Kanye West play the Staples Center. In the VIP section, literally six feet from the stage. For free. How? Well, my friend Stephane moved out to LA from NY earlier this month (after an 8 month trip to Europe, just for funsies) and basically tripped and fell into a job behind the scenes as part of Ye’s creative team — and onstage as a Yeti-Monster-Creature (see above) — on Kanye’s world tour. Since Steph is a generous soul, he invited a few of us to enjoy the show, followed by some backstage shenanigans and a little Veuve.
Good friends, good music, and an epic show. All told: a night to remember.
