ok, first post here!
So I was first introduced to Shpongle in 2011 by a dear friend who told me to listen to shpongle while tripping, so I did and consequently "star shpongled banner" is one of my top faves because I first listened to it on my first shroom trip - moving along, I became very fascinated by the music and slowly but surely I knew all the songs. but I didn't know anyone who shared my love for shpongle so for a few years I felt alone and worse I thought I wasn't ever going to witness a show because of that and because I hadn't seen Shpongle come up with a new album in years (this was before museum of consciousness came out) I thought it was on an indifinite hiatus.
Then I start blogging and made profound connections with people who shared the same love for shpongle as I, but again, it was no one near me so I still felt alone.
But then last year I found out Shpongle was coming to san diego and I went with my boyfriend (he listens to other music but still went with me and had a blast anyways!) and it was seriously the most magical! from start to finish I couldn't believe I was there! I remember being in the bathroom and all of a sudden I hear shpongle going on and my door opens on its own and I just took at as a sign TO JUST HURRY UP AND GO! after the show I unexpectedly meet Simon, I go up to him and honestly I had no idea what to say so I asked if I could give him a hug and he said yes and I had the most cliché but genuine fan moment come out and said "I love your music!" and he humbly replied "thank you!" I didn't even think about a picture which I later regretted but hey some memories are meant to just stay with you :)
And now as of 2015 I have made a close friend who sincerely fell in love with shpongle after me introducing her to it so of course she's the person that comes to last week's show with me :)
OK that was my LONG shpongle story... I hope you guys enjoyed! and I think my shpongle story will continue here of course :)
