Part Two of the Great New York Adventure

Empire State Building from the Brooklyn Bridge

Back in April I visited New York to fangirl over Chris Corner visit a new country and continent. Here is a belated blog of my adventure. Because of the number of photos I’m splitting each day into it’s own post. 

Part One can be found here. 

Day Two: Brooklyn Bridge and the second IAMX show. 

Approaching the Brooklyn Bridge

I must admit that I had a lot more planned. But a combination of jet lag and being a dirty stopout the previous night meant the morning was pretty much a write off. 

So after dealing with the joys of the subway replacement bus and crazy subway Jesus lady, I found myself on the Brooklyn Bridge. It was crazy busy with tourists but as long as you stay out of the bike lane it’s fine!

With my late start I didn’t really do much more sight seeing. After the replacement bus experience earlier I thought it best to head back to the apartment. I needed to get ready for the IAMX concert.

It was good to be reunited with the {X} tribe. Some of them had been queuing since 10am! I have to admire their dedication!

I ended up on the far right of the stage just below Janine’s keyboards. While the crowd had a different vibe the band were on top form. I think word about the guest celebrity had got out. She hadn’t been announced when the first show sold out. 

Kat Von D

I’m a bit torn on Kat Von D, while I’m not a fan, Chris seems to enjoy working with her. 

After the show I bid farewell to the {X} tribe as I wasn’t doing the third night of the mini residency. I had made several new friends!
