Just thought I'd share....

  1. Last night was my bands first "real" gig! Woo! We'd played at our school once, but we got an offer from a local band to open for them. Our drummer has had connections with them and such, but you know... it always helps :D
    Anyways, I wasn't really scared or anything. We've been together since January, and practiced atleast twice a week since then. The last day of school we passed out flyers to anyone who'd take one, resulting in there being a full house. Ok, so it was a bowling ally/bar... but still, I'd say there was 120+ people there. Many of them I remebered handing a flyer, too!
    The crowd loved us. During one song, Josh (our guitarist) introduced us, and, being the only girl, I must say they were a bit fond of me. :rolleyes:
    We went through our line up (mostly cover songs, but a few that we had written), I sang my little bit, danced around a lot, and then it was over. As we left the stage, the screams and cheers were deafening.. my ears still hurt!
    Ok, that's it... sorry of it was a bit long, I just thought I'd share :)

    way to go, xxxBOTTOMLOVERxxx. relish moments like those, and remember to embellish them wildly when relating them to strangers in the street. or is that just me? no-one will sit next to me on the bus anymore :( ;)
