This afternoon after I caught about 4 hours of sleep, I did what any twenty-seven year old does in the morning. I got ahold of my iPhone and caught up with the rest of the world on social media before I ever left my bed. As I closed Twitter and opened Vine, I realized one very important thing. One of my new favorite recording artists, Machine Gun Kelly (a.k.a. MGK) was in the audience for the Drowning Pool show and I had no clue he was a stone throw away from me.
For those of you who don't know, MGK is a punk rock influenced rapper from Cleveland, Ohio. Over the years, he has released multiple mixtapes along with creating a loyal cult following with his signature phrase, "Lace Up". After being signed by Sean "Diddy" Combs of Bad Boy Records, Machine Gun Kelly released his first major album, "Lace Up" in 2012 including hit singles "Wild Boy" and "Invincible".
Although I have no clue exactly when he arrived at Ohio Bike Week this year, I do know that he was in the audience for the Drowning Pool concert in downtown Sandusky last night after I saw him come across my Vine timeline. You can see from these posts linked below that he was pretty close and personal with the audience and of course, enjoying the Drowning Pool show. After the show, it seems as though MGK may have had some fun with the staff at our local Sonic restaurant on 250.
So I have to ask, was there anyone in downtown Sandusky last night that saw Machine Gun Kelly last night during the Ohio Bike Week festivities? If you did, comment below, we'd love to hear your story.
