Hey, it's after midnight so I guess it's officially my birthday now! Normally I'd be asleep by now but I'm still pumped after an audition for a new band... I was pretty much offered the job on the spot even though they'd planned more auditions. I guess that's a pretty good birthday gift! It will be tough to leave my old band, assuming I can convince myself to do so. The current gig is great, but I'm the only guy with a day job, so it's always been understood that I'd have to bow out once travel needs demanded it. The new band is a mercenary cover band with an eye towards profit. The other members have day jobs like mine, so long term goals are compatible. It may be the right opportunity at the right time. I have to continue to be envious of you TBer's who hold down multiple projects because both of these are "every fri. and sat" gigs, so I can't keep 'em both... Shhh... I haven't been 100% officially offered the gig, nor discussed things with my current band. But... not a bad B-day for a 37 year old hack!
