What a weekend! We played a mini festival on friday which turned out to be HUGE! We ended up playing twice, first we played at about 5pm, to a pretty sober and quiet crowd, the event organiser kept pestering us to play again later on and we ended up going back on at 11pm, we were a bit apprehensive as we had been making the most of the free beer tokens we had been paid with but decided to go back on anyway. It was the best gig I've played so far, the tent was heaving everyone was dancing and the atmosphere was great. We ended up staying up most the night then heading back to the city to play a uni gig the day after, we were in the venue thinking "this is quiet" until we realized the doors had not yet opened, once it turned 9pm the doors opened and the place was heaving! We sounded great and we all knew it, I'm fairly new to gigging and everything started feeling right this gig, I was confident on stage and the band just clicked, it was perfect. We chilled backstage for the rest of the night watching a couple of other bands and getting up to our usual shenanigans before packing up to head home. The weekend is over and Im left with a few thoughts. Number 1... I really don't want to go back to my crappy office job tommorow, the thought of that is soul destroying. Number 2.... We spent more money on partying then what we made. I don't have a problem with this at the moment as I earn good money at my job. Currently the band is more of a social thing then a "job". Number 3... I really feel like being a musician is what I'm supposed to do with my life, the money from my day job does not make me happy, or anywhere near it. I'm seriously considering selling my fancy car and going part time to focus on the band. Number 4.... We have loads of gigs booked up for the next few months and things seem to be picking up nicely. Tho i'm quickly learning their is little money to be made in my city and the clubs/bars take home all the profits. Number 5.... That was probably the best weekend of my life, what a rush playing to a crowd that size was! How do you cope with doing that then going back to normality the day after? I find it really strange.
