I'm in a 'well established' metal band. Local scene veterans. Our first album was released on a label and can be found all over the streaming services. Material is written and set in stone, and the drummer hits the studio this weekend for tracking. So, why should I bother to drive an hour to practice, to 'practice the set' for an opener slot next week for a well known national? The stage show hasn't changed, and we've got click/scratch tracks for all the tunes we're going to play. Am I the a**hole for suggesting we just skip practice altogether? That's a lot of wasted time to drive an hour to practice, jam for an hour and then drive an hour home. What's the point? We're done writing, and we've got recordings. Is there something so wrong about rehearsing parts at home? Or am I just getting old (woohoo, 30!) and grumpy?
