Today kicks off my school’s big annual Fine Arts Festival. It’s a weekend of students showcasing their talents in dance, music, drama, and the visual arts, and it’s always a fun (and hectic) time. Tonight is our big Spring Concert, which is the biggest concert in our program. Based on what we have programmed, it’s going to be bonkers—in the best possible way. I love over-the-top, melodramatic rockin’, and this concert will be dripping with it.
In honor of that—and because I’m exceptionally busy—today’s #TBT features the first throwback to a post on the WordPress version of this blog. That post is “Gig Day!”
“Gig Day!” details my elaborate pre-show rituals, which really aren’t all that elaborate or ritualistic. I mainly practice at the last minute, take inventory of my gear, and shower. But, hey, that’s what makes the world go round.
I’ve been gigging much more this year, as I’ve dubbed 2019 “The Year of the Panther.” It’s been fun (and mildly lucrative).
