Instore Signing

Firsts. They stick in your soul and mold your being, especially those early, early firsts. My first rock concert was Iron Butterfly in Albuquerque, NM. I was twelve years old and I still have the journal in which I wrote that first rock review. I've been a live music junky ever since. This is a new first for me and I imagine all kinds of people are having memorable firsts. This is the first instore I've been to that actually had enough space for the performers and audience. This is my first daylight Dolls' experience. Being able to see the band AND the audience casts me in more of an observer role than ever. I'm struck again and again by the unique multi-generational make-up of the crowd: parents with young kids, elementary age and younger; pre-teens sans any adult accompaniment; teenagers across the spectrum; plenty of that twenty something crowd and, yes, some of us WAY beyond thirty something. As I snap shots I've never felt like such a documentarian. This feeling becomes even more pronounced as I snap away during the signing. As I watch each enthralled fan approach Brian and Amanda and proffer whatever item they've brought--posters, shoes, bras, purses, body parts, an artificial limb, casts, t-shirts, artwork, a tiara, journals, jackets et alii--, I sense that thrill of the first. These are synergistic moments that will be cherished. For even if one has been to an event of this sort before, one has never met the intense gaze of the totally engaged Brian and Amanda. Their eyes look deep and you are the center of their world. This is star quality. This is how people become fans for life.
