Well, I'm ending my spring break with a huge gig in an Ice castle. We've written ten songs plus two covers(come together- beatles & righteous and the wicked-rhcp)
and................


It's in an ice castle! I'm kinda nervous, this is one of two major gigs for me this year.
I'm playing with four of the best older bands in my town, (like four bands with 35-40 year old members), And our oldest member is 21, me 17, singer 17, and drummer 18.

Its gonna be fun.and cold.


discuss.

1) Plug bass into bass amp
2) Turn bass amp to 11
3) Shatter the ice castle

K well I played the gig yesterday. The castle was so amazing. Where was greek style ice pillars, and a slide and it was amazing.

We played first. Small crowd by that time. We played 8 original songs, with the two covers thrown in. and after that We got encored (mainly because my drunken sister and her friends made up the majoirty of the crowd at the time. so we played one more original.

As we were getting off stage one of the musicians for the next band forgot his guitar strap. so I lent him mine. Which caused me to stay behind an extra hour and watch they're set.

Jesus.............They're lead guitarist IS AMAZING, and lol it turns out hes a music teacher at the elementary school attached to my highschool, and I saw him smokin a joint! TABOO FOR TEACHERS! but Ill find a way to con that dude into giving me formal guitar lessons. other than that the gig was non event ful.


Oh and as I was leaving when the third band was setting up, My phone rang and it was my ride to come and pick me up. And as i turned around in the front row and made my way to the back of the crowd and door, The snow king Said "Look at cheeseburger, The kid on the phone, everybody clap for him, because hes on the phone." I guess you can say Everybody in my whole town knows me as cheesburger.

Oh ****. I forgot to say. We attempted to capture the gig on video tape, and our camera died halfway through the first song.


So i cant nessecarily show you guys pictures. But when/If I get in the news papers Ill send a link to the Yellowknifer, so you can look at the black and whites.
