A few weeks ago I performed live on the local Milwaukee NBC affiliate TODAY’S TMJ 4. Needless to say it was a blast and really fucked up. Everything went wrong/right and the ensuing week was nuts. I don’t want to get defensive, but obviously anyone who has heard my music and/or seen my play live knows that there were some serious “technical difficulties” at play that night.
I have never been a part of what you might call a “viral shitstorm” but I guess that’s what happened to me after this performance. I got a lot of hate/love and felt some pretty intense feelings coming my way. I don’t really want to dwell on this minor blip in my insanely long, weird life of music but it is noteworthy. I don’t even want to post a link to the video, but let me just say it got played on a few late night basic cable television shows. Am I making sense?
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE THUNDER ZONE?
Ego annihilation isn’t a bad thing and I’ve come out of this experience more excited about making and performing music than ever.
