Spring Fling And Centrevol

Posted by Nukaya , in Photography, Life May 16 2009 · 80 views

Basically yesterday went like this:

I go to the radio station at like 8:45ish and I'm doing my show and I'm there and it's going great, and I'm finding awesome music and around 11, Brian, our station manager calls me: "Hey, Maddison, there's a band coming in and I'm interviewing them, so I'm kicking you off the air an half an hour early."

Except, Brian didn't know what time they were coming and I just ended playing stuff until they got there, so it was pretty much the full time anyway. So, they (the band, Centrevol) finally show up and we're all in the studio, which consists of Peter, Kai, Jon, Nate, plus Peter's wife, plus me and Brian, and it's putting the place on the verge of squished because there's extra microphones and wires and things going everywhere. Anyways, Brian's still setting stuff up and I was playing one of the songs off of their promo cd, which is all fine and dandy until I go on the air and proceed to say:

"So, that last song was from Centr-uhm, ok guys, I'm sorry, but is it "Center-val"? How do you pronounce it? Oh jeez, I'm so sorry. Center-vol? Argh. Anyways, uhm, yeah that was their song off their newest album and they're going to be here today playing on campus...."

Now this probably wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't for the fact that they filmed the entire thing to put on their website. But, they were super nice and their interview with Brian went great, and we all headed over to the Spring Fling. Over at the event, they had a velcro wall, gyroscope thing, water slide, snocones, volley tournament, food, and frisbee spin art. And, of course Centrevol. I think their concert went pretty well, even though a lot of people were still just wandering around and playing volleyball, but they sounded awesome. At one point, Nate also yelled for me to pick a number to choose their next song, and then proceeded to inform everyone in the area of the college radio station and how awesome it is and how everyone needs to listen to my show. And while I'm standing there unable to decide to be completely mortified or flattered, it prompts my friend to ask "are you their groupie or something?", which caused me to completely facepalm and make a vain attempt to explain that no, I was not and that this is what I get for hanging around the studio during their interview.

I gave them an Heart in Oregon sticker to put on their van after Kai said my Heart in Oregon shirt was cool. After several attempts to convince me to go with them to Portland, their next stop in the tour, we all said our goodbyes and they drove away while I wandered back to my dorm to deal with a sunburn, photo editing, and some last-minute homework (and believe me, I was ready to just hop in the van with them and go to Portland and then somehow get back to La Grande at a later date. I so want school to be over with right now). It was an unusually great Friday.

Also, this quote made me giggle when I heard it today:

"And please eat more chocolate and please listen to more Coldplay." -Chris Martin

Hey, you don't know this yet, but Centrevol is going to try to get famous and then break up. Sorry about that.-FN
