The thing with having bandmates for a couple of years already is that everybody feels like being able to nail every gig. With one of my bands, that’s just the case. Yep, we feel like pros charging on gigs without a single rehearsal. And that is the truth. Don’t be fooled by our confidence. :Lol:
Here’s a video of one of our latest gigs at the new 99 Ranch location (the food here is good, by the way):
We’re able to pull off the songs somehow, I guess, and have fooled many people. Hah! But yes, it would be much better if we did practice. It’s different when you go in front confident that you’ll nail each song well.
So, yes, don’t be fooled by the feeling that everything’s going to be okay. We’ll never know that one of the members needed that 30 minute rehearsal. Just a friendly reminder from us. 😉
Saturday night is gig night! Hours before going on another weekend night booze along with music and stuff, and I remember these guys:
I don’t know what it is with these guys, but there was a time when I’ve been listening to their tracks nonstop. You could only imagine when I finally got to see them live on an exclusive gig here in the city.
Yup, 2 tix. Music, booze, and a date. Time to re-live those moments tonight with music, booze, and people at some local bar here in the city. 😉
I was about to go bed early, but then I thought of firing up the web for one quick glance at my e-mail–none, so far so good. Then I thought, just a few videos on Youtube, and I’ll be hitting the sheets. Then I came across this video:
I thought I’d never listen to another song from this band again. But then I just got curious since it says Tower of Doom. And for people familiar with the country’s music scene, they would know that this recording company has been producing a couple of quality videos and stuff featuring some of the well known underground bands and artists/musicians from today and as far back as this production goes.
And so within those few seconds of realization, I came to click the video thumbnail–an action which would change my prejudice thoughts into thoughts of admiration. [continue…]
