@ZackTeibloom If you had asked me what my ideal last hurrah of my 20s would have been, I would have said Jack White would have to be involved. Nope. It had to go down like this. With Dave Grohl at the center of it all. We go back a ways, me and Dave. The first time I ever visited Austin with Andy for ACL 2008, we were so blown away by the Foo Fighters’ Sunday night show, I decided I had to move here by SXSW. Two years later we saw Dave doing what he does best, drumming for Them Crooked Vultures, as part of the best rhythm section we’d ever seen. In 2011 we watched them play Lolla together in the pouring rain with my arms around Caitlin, singing along to “Everlong.” In 2013 Caitlin and I came nice and early for his inspiring SXSW keynote speech. But it wasn’t just that it was Dave. Every bit of how tonight went down was so textbook 20’s me, down to the little details.
