    My guitarist has secured a slot for us after another band at a local Italian restaurant for next Thursday’s Fête de la Musique! Our first gig as a full band (my drummer couldn’t make Euroguestock in Brussels)! I’m very excited! And a bit nervous. I’ll try to get some friends and neighbors who will applaud even if I make mistakes!:D:p

    I hope you're playing death metal. Everyone knows death metal goes best with Pasta Fagioli.

    Seriously, that's awesome. Rock it out!

    Enjoy...everything, from the pre-gig jitters, to the first applause, to basking in the afterglow of love (packing up after the gig). I don't know if there' an IHOP or a Denny's around, but, you need to avail yourselves of some post gig grub!
