Today and tomorrow I will be assisting with the Texas Latin Music Awards hosted by Univision. Tonight at 5 p.m in front of the Long Center is a FREE show for anyone who wants to go and see the artists perform LIVE. It will be outside so you won't be able to miss it. Tomorrow night is the actual Award show and you will need a ticket to go in. You can go to Premiostexas.com for more information on how to buy tickets.
Last year I helped out and met some artists like Tati, Bobby Pulido, and Makano. I had such a blast and look forward to tonight.I even got the opportunity to meet local Austin bands, such as Foco Roco and Los Bad Apples. Both bands were nominated for Best Austin Band. Last year I got so lucky and was able to be on stage with Tati as one of her back up singers during rehearsals. Haha! I was just lip-syncing but it was so exciting to be on stage with a star. One of the back up singers didn't show up to rehearsals, so a band member from Foco Roco was looking for someone in the lobby to fill in. He saw me and asked and I was like Yeah of course!! Since I made friends with Alex from Foco Roco, I was able to watch the entire show from backstage and meet people. It was an unforgettable day. My main duty last year was to help with the VIP area. I had to make sure everyone going to the pre-party was an artist or a special guest. I was like a bouncer. I was pretty shocked they put me in charge of that because I'm so friendly and not bouncer material. But they said I was doing a great job. This year I will be assisting with catering. Hopefully I get the opportunity to meet the artists this year. Maybe I'll get the opportunity to meet PeeWee! Hope to see you at the Long Center at 5pm for the Pre Show!
