@pelleasetmelisande: thank you so much!
@AppTrans: We talked about quite a few things actually. Some of it was a bit personal or semi-personal, so I can't get into details, sorry... I will only reveal his height: 6'4".
In the beginning, I didn't hear what he said, so we were both like: "what?", "what?", "what did you say", "what"? After that initial shock, it went fine. He's amazing! Always with a smile! It surely felt good that he recognized me btw, and he signed my vinyl without me telling him my name or who I was.
I also met his brother, Kevin. I recognized Kevin immediately when I saw him alone before the show, heading out of the venue for a smoke. I had never seen him before, but he looked a lot like a John with shorter hair. The most telling thing though was the way he walked. He walks juuuust like John (they both have a very nice, distinctive walk). Kevin was such a nice guy too! Very, very kind and sweet! I told him that John should not have the monopoly in stardom, that he should publish some of his work.
Got pictures with both. The one with John came out really nice, but the one with Kevin needed a flash (I had forgotten to set it back up after the show).
One thing about the great show: I have been into the specific club a lot of times (it's the club that usually features the "Pitchfork-endorsed" artists in SF), but I have NEVER seen the crowd not going away! After the show, they just stayed there, and the DJ had to ask them twice to leave! For all the other bands I've seen there, the crowd clears up within 2-3 minutes after the show. For John, they stayed put for a long time, even if it was clear that there wouldn't be an encore. I guess everyone wanted to speak to him!
