Forgettable Gig

Well last night's gig at the company Christmas party sucked. We only had one practice a week ago and that was without drums. Further, the drummer was just informed of the gig last night. You can just imagine the disaster when we stepped on stage and performed two songs:

1. "Wherever you may go" by The Calling
2. "The man who can't be moved" by The Script

The guitar can't be heard, the drum playing was too fast (#2 song), and so on and so on. We were just all over the place that I wished the floor would open up and eat my alive. Song #1 was a last-minute change last night against what the guitarist and I wanted to play ("Stars" by Switchfoot which we played very well and tight last practice) but our new drummer didn't know the beat. Hence, the change.

Sigh, that's what you get when you don't have enough preparation. Hopefully we'll do better next year (if the organizing committee still wants us to play again).

Z, P, A. If you guys can read this, tayo na lang nga magjam.
