That’s freaking awesome.March 23, 2013 at 1:12 am #2388
Thanks! I thought so, too! Still in shock nearly a year later. The best part… I was wearing a The National shirt when I ran into him. Matt and I both found that amusing and rather ironic. Haha.March 23, 2013 at 4:18 pm #2408

Was this just a random meeting, not on a show day? How funny indeed!March 25, 2013 at 3:55 pm #2460
Yeah, just a random meeting. So crazy. The guys live a few minutes away from me and I happened to be walking out of one store while Matt was walking out of another. I had zero composure- which NEVER happens but I approached him anyway. Ha. After we chatted for a few, I asked for a picture and Matt insisted on a photo shoot. He’s the one that actually took the pictures. Then we talked for a bit longer. It was amazing. He’s an absolute sweetheart. So down to earth. Haven’t had the pleasure of running into him or any of the guys since but that one experience will last me a lifetime. I’m such a sap.March 25, 2013 at 4:16 pm #2462
Hahaha, I know what you mean. Normally i’m okay but I seriously lost my shit when I met Peter Katis but I had to talk to him.
Matt is indeed lovely – that’s awesome he took the time out for you. Personally, I get majorly paranoid i’ll bump into them if i’m in their neighbourhood, i’m no stalker!
Seriously awesome though, thank you for sharing!March 25, 2013 at 4:29 pm #2463
Oh wow. How was that?
Yeah, I get paranoid also but at the same time I’d like to make up for my lack of composure with another chance meeting. Ha. It’s strange because I’ve met a bunch of different famous people over the years and NEVER had that reaction. I think it’s because it was so unexpected, ya know? Usually if I meet someone, it’s because I’m waiting after a show so I have time to prep myself. Not so much with Matt. There was no time for thinking. Just walked right up to the man.
You’re quite welcome! It’s my pleasure to share. Hopefully I’ll have another (not so embarrassing) story to tell one of these days.March 26, 2013 at 1:42 am #2480
Is there a way to uplaod a photo?March 26, 2013 at 2:29 am #2482March 26, 2013 at 2:40 am #2483
Matt got a little close while shooting their last Bonnaroo show a few years ago. I’d like to think I’m in this in some sense of the word.

Haha! That’s fantastic!March 30, 2013 at 1:18 am #2598
Oh my. I can’t believe i’ve never seen that shot surface, it’s seriously amazing. I’m jealous – that’s one for the portfolio!
fyr, chance meetings are always the best. Plus everyone always forgets what they’ve planned to say anyway! 😛March 31, 2013 at 2:48 am #2657
Yea, I mean it probably hasn’t surfaced, because it’s just sat on my computer for years, it’s not on my website or anything. I have more National photos I could post, but they aren’t of ‘me and the band’. Post them here?
