Some of you know that I'm in three bands. HK is the band that plays out most often. It is highly rare that there is an audience assembled that can appreciate what Straight Edgemont does. This was going to be one of those occasions and I was hyped. There were many aspects to the event that made me want to be a part of it. But I recall one post from Chad on the facebook invite where he specifically told everyone to leave their booze at home. I knew this dude was a committed a vegan, but I was quickly seeing that we held similar views in regards to drugs and alcohol as well. Double bonus! I practiced a little bit in Denver in Sept, worked on lyrics sporadically, & finally had one last practice at Kenny's the day of the show.
Initially the plan was to dine on Chili Pie [generously made by Liam from the Bye & Bye] around 8pm, then get the bands started around 9pm. I knew I was playing first, but there were some heating issues, and I went on before the chili pie. There's no time like the present!
