so Wax does a podcast
on this podcast he tells people to email him questions, suggestions, just to say whats up
I've conversed with him through email a few times
a few months ago he mentioned on the podcast he was playing warped tour this year
he also mentioned how easy it is to get into a tour show like that for free with some bullshit like a press pass or similar things
when I found that out I wrote him to say I may actually buy a ticket for warped tour this year because he's on the tour and I'd like to see his set
or maybe I'd try to swindle my way in with a press pass since I take pics as a hobby and I do it for my job so technically I'm a "professional"
in his reply email, he straight up offered to get me into the show for free and get me a photo pass...
I said if its any hassle don't bother, but he said it was no problem
so he put me on the guest list, I brought all my shit and walked in early
ended up running into him by his booth and chilling with him in the morning for a bit on his bus and later on in the afternoon walking around the merch tents
took pics his entire set and also some other bands
when I left I told him that being such a big fan of his, it was a fucking awesome day
I took 23 GIGABYTES of pics..... most from his set (also they're RAW files so they're like 23MB a file, but still...)
dude is great to his fans, it should be recognized
also I wanted to gloat heartily
