I Got Paid to Obsess Over My Favorite Band? HAIM ARTICLE

Have you ever heard of Haim?

If you follow my art Instagram, @artsyrosebud, you most likely have.

I made 3 posters for a contest they had, but no, I didn’t win…

Anyway.

When my editor asked for pitches for stories, I told her I was going to see my favorite band, Haim (click here to read my last post with a couple of videos of theirs I recommend). She then asked me if I needed a ticket.

I already had a ticket, but I told her I’d take another one if I could. So the Southside Ballroom (the uber-cool venue Haim was performing at in Dallas) gave me TWO tickets BESIDES the one I had already bought for myself (yes, to go watch them alone. I bought it before going to concerts was something I got paid for.) They also gave me a photo pass!

I knew about one of my extra tickets early, so I was able to surprise my friend with it.

Also, while lining up two hours before the show, I found out I got two free tickets and was able to call my sister to come join. It was so spontaneous and super fun.

I am not kidding when I saw I FREAKED OUT THE WHOLE FREAKIN TIME. It was by far the best concert I had ever been to. These girls are so incredibly talented. I don’t think I breathed the whole time.

Anyway.

I basically just freaked out about how much I loved the concert, and that’s what resulted in this article.

My only thing? My editor wrote the headline, which I didn’t like very much. I felt like using “Sex” in the title was click-bait-y and distracted from the whole point I was going for.

But hey, they paid me to go to a concert!
