I quickly glanced down and typed the words, “Get Real,” into my cell phone.
Not long after I finished, I felt instant pressure being applied to the back of my phone.
“What the …?” I thought to myself.
I looked up and saw the clear heel of Caroline Polachek’s white plastic boot tapping my phone.
The Chairlift frontwoman nonverbally scolded me for being in the phone zone and not watching her band’s performance of “Get Real” on Monday at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, Mich. I was standing at the front right corner of the stage, so I should’ve known I wasn’t anonymous.
