I've never really followed a band.
I had a friend that loved R.E.M. so much, she followed them on tour from L.A. back to their hometown - Athens GA, - and then settled down there. It brought her adventures galore; it was a road trip that literally changed her life.
I didn't move my life anywhere, but I did venture out to Las Vegas and The Cosmopolitan Hotel to catch the only band I've ever left California for - Vintage Trouble.
Like the Grateful Dead's "deadheads", Jimmy Buffet's "parrot heads" and Lady Gaga's "little monsters", VT has "troublemakers". A pansexual group of people of all creeds and colors with one thing in common - a love of great music and great songs sung by great singers - so they all love Vintage Trouble. I am one of them.
This was the first night of the band's 5 day stay at the hotel's Book + Stage Lounge with it's awesome sound system and P.O.V. monitors all around the bar. The Cosmopolitan is a regal monument of a lodging; inside is a casino (of course) and several floors of restaurants, bars, hangouts and shopping that are enjoyed by tourists and locals alike.
