"Wait, so who did you interview last night", asked Amos as we finished another round of beers and stories.
This question directly followed his story of travelling to Atlanta to interview Big Boi, which immediately followed Chris' story of travelling to Virginia Beach to interview Pharrell.
"Um, this guy Allen Stone." In my head, saying "Allen Stone" after hearing Big Boi and Pharrell was like matching a 1909 Honus Wagner and a 1914 Babe Ruth with a 1993 Chuck Knoblauch. As to save face and retain the smallest bit of credibility, I started throwing disclaimers left and right. "He's this unreal up-and-coming soul singer. He's super chill and really down to earth. He was on Conan a few weeks ago and did an in-office performance at Complex yesterday and is getting interviewed at a ton of other music outlets and has a show tonight at SOBs and I think he might be the next big thing." They seemed semi-impressed, either in my description of him or in my ability to construct a disgustingly long run-on sentence.
