Tonight we take the hour train ride into the bigger city to do a set at a music open mic.
This is basically my first music open mic as I was doing comedy for many years but have since switched to music.
I’ve been drumming for a few years on and off, but now I’m taking it a bit more seriously and trying to make it a career. We will practice at this open mic and try out some of our old songs and maybe a few new ones too. I think the local business which has the open mic is the same one I used to do comedy shows in, so at least the air conditioned venue is going to be the same. Maybe I’ll see some familiar faces there from days of old, but I won’t know till we arrive as it has been years since going to that city. I was working at a heating corp there years ago but then I moved to this smaller town where I live now to get away from all of the city noise and pollution. I work here for a local contractor doing some heating and cooling equipment repairs and service calls for their customers. I like the work as it allows me to use my hands and work around other people, and it also makes me feel good when I fix an HVAC system problem for a customer. I think I will keep working there while the music career grows and just keep doing what I am doing for a while.
