Re: girlfriends, wives, and the like coming to gigs
I gig 3 or 4 times a week. I've been doing this for most of the 15 years that my wife and I've been together.
She'll go every now and then if she knows some of the other band members girlfriends or wives will be there. The last thing she wants to do is sit by herself and get "hit on" all night.
Other than that...she'd rather stay home. She's seen me play many, many times. It's all old hat to her.
