I’ve got a gig on the books: April 16th at Republic of Pie.
After so much time off, an upcoming gig is powerful shit. Things come into focus.
Right after confirming, I shift into gear. I take my guitar out of its case, and underneath lies a setlist in Sharpie from last summer. There are songs I could lose, maybe even permanently.
The time away was helpful. Things are clear.
Fragments of new songs float between apps. The gig paints a bullseye and I get busy.
I’ll play at least one new song on the 16th, and some old ones, of course--they hold the thing together. And I’m sure I’ll say something on the mic I wish I hadn’t. Hey, it’s been a while.
Gig details here.
