Rating: 5/5

There was no such thing as slowing down. Thomas Wesley gulps down another beer. His friend hands him another. He thinks it’s about his fifth drink. Regardless of the number, he’d still be able function. Guy Fieri brings him some dinner before the show. He takes the plate and says he forgot to eat. He wanted to but couldn’t between photos and talking to fans. Fieri asks anyone if their hungry. Cam says she’ll have some brisket. Fieri calls his assistant and puts in the order. Fieri says someone will be by soon with food.

Cam bites into her brisket and tells Wesley there are some people here he should meet. She asks if he’s has any introductions to some industry people. He says he hadn’t a chance yet. She says he should talk to them at the after-party. He explains it’s such a different world from EDM. Cam says it takes some getting used to and she’s still learning herself.

Wesley presses the wrong button halfway through the show. He puts his head down and tries to balance himself. His forehead was throbbing. He shouldn’t have that extra beer before he went on stage. One of his band members mouths “are you okay?” He gestures that he needs to sleep. Cam thanks the crowd for the wonderful night. Wesley waves and says “thanks” in the microphone. As they walk off stage, he says he has to take a nap before the party. She says she’ll see him later.
