Its disheartening, but man someday a band will find its niche if it stays at what it does....


i hope someday my band wont still be playin in front of lots of gimpy teenagers thinking "wheres the screaming?","whys that guy not using double bass?","whos Frank Zappa?"....


*shudder*
Frank who?? Nah, I kid I kid, I love Zappa.. but seriously man, that sucks, I'm sure you guys will find your niche one day...

its like a group of allies

someone gets a show and they invite all of us in our pact to play

so theres some pretty popular bands this one band darwin in particular

last show we had 150 people show up

so we hope that by this these 150 people will come to our own show


catch my drift? you need some semi big opening acts or maybe open for a big act
Yeah our band is starting to open up for some bigger bands in the area lately, we hope that this'll attract some more people to come to our regular shows..
