I’m playing a new stage next week.
On Thursday 8.29, I will have the pleasure of playing a full band show at the Double Door in Chicago, IL.
This is my first time on the Double Door stage, but I already know its bright lights well from watching some of my favorite bands rock under them over the years.
A few years ago, I saw Vertical Horizon invite Richard effing Marx up on stage with them and proceed to melt faces.
A year before that, I drank terrible-tasting but delightfully-priced house-conjured shots and belted harmonies from the crowd til I all but lost my voice while Fountains of Wayne played song after favorite song.
Why is this relevant?
Because when I play that stage next week, I won’t be thinking about the money (or relative lackthereof) I’m making. I won’t be thinking about what press is covering it or where I’m headed the next day. While all of those things will have their place in my mind before and after, when I step on that stage, I know the only thing on my mind will be how lucky I am and how cool it is that I get to stand where my heroes stood.
Chicagoans, more details about the show and RSVP here.
