    Well, as expected, we are not going to make any money, but we can play as often as we like. Oh well.

    Band has existed for a few weeks, we play Friday 22nd, and have been offered a slot at Octobear Fest the next weekend.

    No one has heard us play yet. :D

    Just get out and play.

    I have played many times for no money just because I think it's fun.

    Probably because I'm an attention whore. :whistling:

    As are we all, sir, as are we all.

    I like the guys in the new band and I think we will be able to write a lot of stuff. Couple of guys in the band have a lot of experience in merch and in design and stuff so we may be able to sell some stuff to cover expenses. The Spare Bedroom Music Studio is still here and we can record for nothing.

    Thank you. We have been scrambling to get stuff together to play and have not had time to write new stuff and have not concentrated on getting content up so it's pretty empty. Should get better and I suspect we will be able to write more material easily.

    Yep. My sterling rep and chipper demeanor have me connected to the scene without having played. If we take a slot at that second fest thing, we probably play between two bands we know.

    Possibly. :D

    But Collin, without knowing it, gave me a nice launch playing that one show with me. He just wanted to do a gig with Dad, but apparently a lot of people liked us and so we get invites to do stuff.

    Very cool, I'm pretty happy for you! Be patient it sometimes takes new bands weeks or even months to get the big break.



    Don't forget to wear skinny jeans.

    We can't play the Octobear Fest. Time slots left won't work for us. Oh well.
