Sam Nelson Harris of X Ambassadors at Moroccan Lounge on October 26, 2023
This was my first time shooting at The Moroccan Lounge. Imagine my surprise when I found out that it is only a 10ish minute walk to Little Tokyo! Yes! Dumplings! I really, really wanted ramen, but it's so filling and makes me feel so heavy and sleepy so my second choice was yakitori, but they weren't open yet. So, I went with the time honored classic that always makes me happy every single time I eat them...dumplings! I Yelped dumplings in the area and found a cute little dumpling house that serves only two things...dumplings and pork broth soup. You can get dumpling IN the pork broth soup or you can get dumplings AND pork broth soup. The problem was....I couldn't find it. I totally got lost and it took me like 30 minutes to find it once I got in the area. I was on the wrong side of the street and they didn't have a sign. I laugh at myself over this so hard.
Once I did find it, I still had no idea just how much it would be worth the stress and aggravation of being lost. I opted for pan fried pork dumplings AND pork broth soup. Yes, they were the best dumplings and broth soup ever! I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more for those dumplings and that soup. It's always the simplest things in life that bring me the most happiness.
So, once I finished this heavenly meal I walked back over to the venue. I love the X Ambassadors and I was so excited to cover Sam Nelson Harris' solo show. I had no idea it was going to be one of the most beautiful and moving shows I will ever experience in my life. Seriously, I can't even find the words to describe how moving his voice is with just a guitar.
I was able to find some people at the front of the stage who so kind about letting me squeeze in for a few songs. I love it when people are happy to share music experiences instead of trying to keep it for themselves. I was only allowed three songs and I told them that and it wasn't an issue. I was in a room filled with people who just simply love Sam Nelson Harris and were happy to be there with other people who love Sam Nelson Harris. It was a beautiful night.
