This was in San Luis Obispo. We had just found out that we won the contest to open for Coldplay in San Jose. From left to right is: Nik’s girlfriend and Rico’s sister, Risa, Nik, Brian, Rico, Patrick, Nik’s sister Caitlin, Ryan, and Davis from Hazel and Vine. When Patrick found out, he was in the car behind us. He sat out of the window, and began waving his arms. We thought there was some kind of emergency, so we pulled over. He said we had won, and everyone pretty much freaked out. Everyone was very excited, and began calling everyone they knew, save for Nik who said “Damn it” and then immediatly called into work. He wouldn’t even tell his boss why he need the day off, he just asked “Can someone cover my shift?”. His girlfriend forced him to sheepishly explain that he was opening for Coldplay and needed the day off. Nik’s excuse was that he “…didn’t want to gloat”.The old lady who owned the house, behind everyone, came outside and asked if everyone was ok. Apparently she thought someone was hurt too.
