From the Road Part 3: White Sea’s Morgan Kibby on Tour with M83

Twilight Zone on the East Coast

Jan 17, 2012 White Sea By Morgan Kibby Bookmark and Share

What is going on, universe??? In the 5 years I’ve been with M83, the growth we’ve been experiencing since the release of “Midnight City” has never been as palpable. Minneapolis was insane, Boston was electric, we even managed to get NYC dancing by the end of our first show at Webster Hall, which is the HIGHEST compliment. All I can say is that we are all humbled and more than a little excited about the coming year. Seeing kids scream out the lyrics to “Midnight City” that I wrote over a bottle of wine in my PJs…the feeling is incomparable.

When we finally made it to NYC, we immediately went to NBC to perform on Jimmy Fallon. What a trip. Michelle Bachman sat next to me in the makeup room and promptly told me I had beautiful hair: WTF TWILIGHT ZONE??? I was speechless for many reasons I won’t get into but hey, then I saw Deepak Chopra in bejeweled specs walking the halls (SERIOUSLY?), and I had to laugh at where life takes you. Five years ago, I was barely paying my rent, working as an art restoration apprentice, and now I’m roaming the halls of the NBC building getting ready to play on TV. Surreal.

NYC=no sleep. After a brief yet totally fun show at Fallon it was celebration time and we headed to dinner with the incredible family that is Mute Records. Many cocktails were had. My sister was on break from culinary school, so she jumped on the bus with us in Boston, and I can’t say how happy I was to have her with me to celebrate and snuggle. Webster Hall and The Williamsburg Music Hall were both shows that unexpectedly moved and pulsed, and by the end of the second evening, we were all exhausted, totally spent from head to toe. I decided after our show in Brooklyn to forgo the 6 AM drunken bedtimes I’d been keeping for the last two nights, and instead came back to the city to order-in onion rings and a milk shake, and watch bad TV on my lonesome. Best night ever.

Thanksgiving Day: I awoke to the quietest NYC street scenes I’ve ever experienced. I love it here, have always fantasized about moving. The people, the food, so many incredible memories with my M83 family…the list goes on and on. One of the best parts of NYC this time around was connecting with the gorgeous and talented Karen Schijman who helped me get beauteous for the shows. Teresa, our tour manager and my incredible roommate headed out to the Bronx to see her family and I headed to Karen’s apartment, where we promptly fell into a bottle of champagne and lots of gossip while she prepared her Thanksgiving dinner. I did my tour laundry (hallelujah), and before her guests arrived, I slipped out to Brooklyn to have dinner with the band at Peter Luger’s steak house. Holy moly it was delicious. We went round the table and shared at least one thing we were thankful for… a perfect bow to a truly wonderful trip. We are indeed very, very thankful.

And now…off to Poland. Five dates left, then home. Looking forward to the shows, but definitely feeling a bit homesick. Can’t wait to see the Pacific.

Morgan, thoroughly have enjoyed reading your blogs. A little insight into life on the road. I saw you in Portland in Nov. at The Wonder Ballroom and I was completely blown away. One of the best shows I’ve been to in years. I just bought tickets today for your show in April at The Roseland in Portland. Congratulations on your success!

I’m just happy for you and M83, you deserve it !
I’m from France, couldn’t be at the Olympia but your TV appearance the next day was enourrrmous, can’t stop watching it again and again !

Can you tell Jordan with the hair cut he had on TV, and his voice, he made me think so much of the Tears for Fears singer :-)

To each and every one of you and especially Karen plasee know I have had you in my heart and prayers since I first found out. I have posted this on my FB page daily in knowledge that all of my Prayer Warrior friends will be on bended knee lifting you in prayer and lending support of their wings .  Faith is the greatest blessing in my life and all I can believe is that God needed some very special angels to be in His heavenly tribe! Precious Karen .you and your family are disciples of Christ here on earth as you have already turned the focus of the Celebration to include assisting children that would not have a Christmas. May God, His precious Son and The Blessed Mother enfold you tightly in Their embrace and breath comfort and healing into each of your hearts. I am a retired DAL f/a and as a member of the Delta family know I have you and your family wrapped tightly in my prayers and my heart!  May God’s abundance of healing and love shower you my precious angel Cornelia

Спайс Челябинск

Несмотря на массированную пропаганду курительных смесей в СМИ они продолжают оставаться самыми широко потребляемыми веществами в Российской Федерации. В большинстве известных нам случаев курительные смеси спайс влияют на человека в позитивном ключе, например, убирают напрочь депрессию, формируют особый, несвойственный способ мышления. Точно сформулированной классификации курительных смесей и миксов спайс не существует. Их условно можно разделить только две группы, легальные и нелегальные; состоящие из натуральных растений, т.е. этноботоники и приготовленные с использованием синтетической основы. Как раз курительные миксы, основанные на легальной химии принято причислять к спайсам. Сравнительным преимуществом нашего интернет-магазина над остальными является региональная доступность, наличие последних легальных новинок и удобство для рядового потребителя.
