“Hey Louw, this is super last minute. But I just received confirmation that I can have an extra pass for a photographer on stage at K-day in Cape Town. My set’s at 15:00 tomorrow. Can you fly in?”
Alright, I am paraphrasing a little here. Matthew’s incredibly polite and considerate. He is always very accommodating and nice whenever he drops a voice note asking if I’d be keen/available for a show or last-minute trip. Matt, if you’re reading this, never change. I love impromptu adventures.
“Hey, Matt, sure thing. I’d be super keen to shoot your show. I’ll have to fly in tonight so I can drop by ORMS to pick up a suitable lens for the big stage.”
And just like that, my flights were booked. A few hours later I was at OR Tambo airport, ready for this very last minute flight. I was buzzing. This was the first time I had ever been flown in by a musician. I was so high on positive emotion, that I hardly cared about the 2-hour delay that night.
