So, how much does BBC like Prince? God, I'm not sure if I can even put that into words. When he was a kid, his parents thought he might be gay because he had a nearly-nude poster of Prince hanging above his bed. A couple of weeks ago, he listened to the latest Prince song over and over and over and over....... and then talked my ear off about how amazing it is. While I thought it was campy, he schooled me on old-school Prince style until I begged him to stop geeking out. Brandon knows more Prince trivia and history than Wikipedia! AND he's sat through all 3 of Prince's movies, which we all know is a struggle for even the biggest Prince fans. Last night when I texted him at work about the Prince SXSW show, he left his post at the bar to run to the bathroom to control his excitement and tears of joy. So that brings me to my mission. I am going to do everything I can to get my sweetie into that show.
I'm rolling with the punches and obstacles as the come: I had plans to be in Dallas this weekend but I'm cutting it short, BBC doesn't have a SXSW badge, there's the chance that tickets will be issued through a lottery like most of these huge last minute SXSW shows are, I may have to camp out over the week to hold his space in line. I don't know what it's going to take, but I'm up for the challenged! I think the first step is getting that SXSW badge that I scoff at every year. So, I've started a FundMe page to raise contributions. You can donate HERE. Every penny helps!
