Frantically I put together the band that will join me on stage tonight at approximately 11:00.
We're the third slot.
With the Mercers I don't get that way. We're such a well oiled machine, and at the end of the day I can pretty much know how a show is going to end up.
But this is different. This is my music! Up until now I've mostly kept it all to myself, but after tonight it's out there. Its up for debate and to be processed thoughtfully, or casually in one ear and out the other. I put some of my roommates maxi pads in the arm pits of my shirt for fear of being docked points for obscene pit stains. Luckily they are sticky on one side so hopefully they won't fall out when I lift my arms during emotional/ showy sections of the set. At first I thought she wanted me to put the sticky side against my hairy pit, but after a moment of giggling she explained that "the sticky side goes against your shirt...idiot."
Hopefully that will be the only hiccup of the evening.
I've very proud of the work me and the guys have pulled together in the past two nights.
More than anything, I'm proud to expose this little bit of my creative outlet- the window to my soul if you will.
Here's to seeing things through.
I'll keep you abreast of the results!
