I'll be playing this Friday- which just happens to be Friday the 13th- at Hailey's in Denton. Doors are at 8pm, and I go on at 9pm.
Shortly after the new year, I was invited to do this gig. The call came just a few days after I had a little talk with myself about saying "Yes!" to more things. I guess the universe was eavesdropping on that conversation, because a few odd opportunities for me to flex my yes muscle came up soon after.
Although I graduated from U.N.T many moons ago, I've seldom, if ever!, been back to Denton since. I gotta admit, now that the date is soon approaching, I'm a little nervous. Am I going to be the oldest person in the room among a bunch a college aged people? (I've been told, "Yes, probably so") Am I going to be the only act of the night playing as a soloist/no band? Am I going to get boo-ed off the stage? And is it smokey bar? (Please let this not be the case!)
I really have no idea how it will go. But that's sorta what's cool about it. And that's why it's sorta cool that I said "Yes".
If you're anywhere near Denton on Friday, I'd love it if you'd show up for me. Just say "Yes!"
