The largest influx of young women arrived after Pattinson’s local appearance was announced via Facebook postings.
Devoted Twilight fans Jessica Ramos and Angel Alavrado, both sophomore education majors from Lubbock, were waiting outside the back door of the bar to get a glimpse of Pattinson. They said they saw a picture on a teacher’s Facebook and proceeded to call and confirm from that teacher Pattinson was really in Lubbock. Once they had verification, they were on their way to Crickets, Ramos said.
“He was a real nice guy,” McBride said.Although Cricket’s capacity is 253, they only let about 100 people stay in the building once Pattinson arrived, he said.
One girl even brought an Edward cut-out and plastered it up against the window, he laughed at that.
Rob walked up close to the door a few times and gave a little wave.
