Billy Talent was here in Vancouver the last two nights, playing concerts at the Commodore. Loribelle and I were invited to come and help Aaron out by manning his F.U.MS booth. We had a great time meeting Aaron’s fans, sharing information about someonelikeme.ca and letting them know about Aaron’s new “Ask Aaron” section in the forum, as well as selling t-shirts to help raise funds for the Canadian MS Society. We did a lot of tweeting and even gave away a signed copy of their latest album to one lucky couple who saw the tweet to be the first to visit the F.U.MS booth to win it.
Last night Aaron came to meet Loribelle, her husband and I before the doors opened. It was nice to finally put a face to a name, after all this time. We had the chance to chat and I gave Aaron an NMO awareness bracelet, which he immediately put on. He very kindly asked us which of the band’s t-shirts we would like to have and then took them and had them signed by the entire band.
Loribelle and I had also never met before, so doing this volunteer gig was the first time we’ve crossed paths. It was great hanging out and getting to know her and I am sure we’ll get together the next time she’s in town.
THANK YOU Aaron for the opportunity to help out. Have a great time on the European leg of your tour!
