Spontaneity is the seed of fun
Saturday was a good gig. I played some new songs that I am considering putting on the album and they went down well. True Heart got a few mentions from people in the audience who I spoke to after the show. Others who hadn't heard me before liked my honest and openness in my song. The heart on your sleeve element. It was a hot, hot night. I was completely soaked after the show. I looked like I had been for a swim not like I'd just played a 40 minute set. Those gigs are favourite. If your sweating playing rock than your doing it wrong!
I did have one bizarre event take place. I couldn't remember how the last song in my set went . This has happened to everyone I'm sure. Hey I'm human, I make mistakes. Cut me some slack. :) I announced proudly that I'd forgotten my OWN song and both the audience and I had a laugh before it all came flooding back me and the night finished on a high. I don't find it embarrassing, just weird. It rarely happens to me, I could the number of times on one hand. It was like the hard drive on your computer being wiped. Nothing would boot up. Everything worked out in the end and that's what a live show is all about. The spontaneous, the unplanned. You don't get that on a record or in a video. It's the one thing that makes a live show exciting. It's what makes being alive a thrill. Spontaneity is the seed of fun.
Have a great day.
