smells like nirvana

If you haven’t read already, I had the opportunity to perform live with “Weird Al” Yankovic during his concert last weekend. I, with another girl, danced as “goth cheerleaders” during his “Smells Like Nirvana” song. We were given only a couple of hours to choreograph and practice the routine using a boom box and a CD before we went on stage. I was so nervous, but it was such a thrilling experience! The tour manager/crew put so much trust in us, as we didn’t have an opportunity to actually practice on the stage or with Al beforehand, and they also didn’t ask to have our routine pre-approved. Afterwards we helped ourselves to some delicious chocolate cake that was backstage (after our healthy dinner earlier), and I found my boyfriend in the audience to watch the rest of the show. Since we didn’t have time before, we met Weird Al afterwards. Needless to say, I had a blast, and I hope I’ll be able to have more of these “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunities in the future. Here are some photos both on and backstage, as well as a link to a video of the performance. I am the cheerleader on the left (right of Weird Al) with the pigtails. Enjoy! 🙂
