Seema Mir (on left) first planted the idea for Joni to attend ACL when they met four years ago. She’s been going to the festival for years with a friend but wasn’t able to use her tickets that year so sold hers on a Facebook trading site. Joni bought the tickets for her son’s birthday gift. “You should go, too!” Seema suggested…. Joni took her advice this year. They’ve been in touch ever since that ticket sale.
