“An exuberant horn trio and a talented fiddler contributed to the sound and added some much-needed seriousness to what occasionally devolved into a foot-stomping goof-fest led by a bare-footed Lovett –- wearing jean shorts and wife-beater –- who at times seemed to be tethered only barely to the planet by his instrument.”—
a review of a Mumford & Sons performance at The Fillmore, Denver
I’m really just posting this for the last line. It’s great.
So in June I had the privilege of seeing the boys two nights in a row. Easily two of the greatest nights of my life. Anyways, on the second night we waited outside the venue driveway in the hopes of meeting them (for the second time… we waited after the first night too, but Ted and Ben booked it out of there, beers in hand, and Marcus was busy riding a dirt bike through the alley). Winston was the first to come out, walking awkwardly toward the probably intimidating line of fans just waiting for him to speak. But he was overtly polite, putting on a show and introducing himself to each individual there, asking their names and shaking their hands. It was funny to see him try and impress everyone with cordiality, after watching him blatantly yell ‘PUSSAYYYY’ on national television. Anyways. He was talking to this one kid who asked him to sign his polo shirt. After Winston finished the job, the kid stripped off the polo and asked him if he would also sign his undershirt. Winston said sure, walked up to him again, and proceeded to draw tits on him, saying “There you go… that’s all you need” with that damn grin on his face. It was perfect. I’m just glad to have witnessed it. But yeah, that’s my Winnie story.
