before the show

before the show


we had done this thousands of times before

on the road



and garages


it was our first big break


we always felt the same

those nerves

antsy feet

jittery hands


puffed out sighs


our drummer was the lucky one

practicing with this sticks

against everything

on his knee if he was desperate


the walls here have had history written on them



thought about leaving our mark


saw bands i grew up listening to

was searching for my favorite

bass player found his


our guitarist found a good spot

next to the door

wide open


signed no one here knows us

but we’re going to rock it


we huddled


got hyped

and ran onto the stage to a silent crowd

made a few fans that night


we had more fun than they did
