Hey there talk bass, So the Australian bass player Dane Alderson happens to be in my town (Charlottesville, VA) playing gigs every Monday at a local bar. I hadn't yet seen him and his trio play (they're amazing by the way) and I really wanted to go. So much so, that I skipped out on band practice to go (I invited my guitarist and drummer, but they have an aversion to anything besides punk/alternative rock). Anyway, I figured since it was just a practice it wasn't a big deal to miss it to watch an enjoyable gig. So, would any of you guys be upset if one of your band members missed a practice to go watch a gig (with virtuoso musicians) instead?
