as he is getting ready for the show, rodrigo carries out his everyday routine which includes packing the day's clothes into a cardboard box. in his wardrobe is a t-shirt bearing the words, 'the most dangerous place to be is between two cool people'; as well as a pair of black shorts. it's a wardrobe you might find in a fellow teenager who is comfortable in their own skin and doesn't feel the need to hide the fact that they are feeling good about themselves. in the past, these words have been quoted back to him by his mother: 'the most dangerous place to be is between two cool people'. he wears the new gold and green guitar case that he made. 'it's a way for people to keep things like my favorite guitar, my camera, my heart and body inside of it, and that no one will ever get into it,' he says. 'they can't take anything out without opening the case and destroying it; it's like a safe but it also makes me feel really comfortable and protected.'
