I am a big Mumford & Sons fan. I even went to see them a few months ago when the group played the Barclays center.
I am also a member of the Soho House, so when the club sent out an email earlier this week stating that the group would be performing on their rooftop two days later as part of a 10-year anniversary celebration, I cleared my calendar.
Only problem is that the roof can't accommodate every single NYC member, so the club held a lottery.
Spoiler alert: I didn't win.
But a lot of other people did get the golden ticket and so I had to live vicariously through them on social media:

J. Crew's President and Creative Director Jenna Lyons watched from a swan in the pool.

And then John Legend came out:
Here are a few other celebs who were in attendance. They clearly did not have to enter a lottery:

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany.
Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton.
Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock.
“We are supposed to stop playing now but we are just gonna go on,” Marcus Mumford reportedly told the crowd. “Don’t do this half-ass New York thing; we need some fat people in the pool, like myself and we will all be united.”
