Do you ever get that feeling where you are the only one there, wherever you are. Just there. No alcohol or substances involved! I was standing in the middle of Mercury Lounge watching Honor by August and just soaked in their music. There were the hard core fanatics who danced and sang their way through the gig, the socializers in the back by the bar and amateur paparazzi floating around the Lounge, while I stood undisturbed. I snapped out of it when my friend JT jumped in my face and went,"I LOVE THEM!!"
