Let’s face it: your weekend is shot. With all this rain messing up your schedule, all you’re going to get to do is cut grass. Or clean out the passenger side of your truck. Or go through that Salvation Army pile when your spouse isn’t looking and put several of those old concert t-shirts back in your drawer. Or maybe go to some friends’ wedding–or maybe even your own wedding (in which case more is shot than just your weekend).
Really, the only way you’re going to get to do anything fun this weekend without having to wear fancy clothes you will never wear again is to start your weekend on Thursday, a time when that melancholy Sunday evening “I hope this hangover is gone before I have to go to work tomorrow” feeling is a long, long way away.
So, how does it work? Well, the first thing you do is put on some comfortable clothes that you don’t mind someone spilling beer on, like that Black Sabbath shirt you just rescued from the Salvation Army pile. Then, on Thursday night, you head down to the Boone Saloon to see the Worthless Son-in-Laws. The show starts at about 10:30 PM, but it’s good if you get there a little earlier so that you can hear what your friends are saying when they talk to you. If they feel like you are listening to them, they are more likely to buy you a drink.
Then, later on in the weekend, while you are sitting there trying to forever hold your peace, you can think “at least I already did something fun this weekend where I got to wear my Black Sabbath shirt. And I saw the Worthless Son-in-Laws, too.”
See you at the Saloon…
The Worthless Son-in-Laws
P.S. Just so’s you knows, we have put up another (free) mp3 on our Listen page. It’s a drum-less practice room version of our new song “(My Pocketknife Says) Life is Strange.” The track is also posted on our facebook page. If you’d like us to send the mp3 file to you directly over e-mail, reply to this e-mail with the word “mp3” in the subject line, even though that is not really a word. There is also an article in the High Country Press.
P.P.S. Also, if your weekend is not really shot, and you would like to shoot at least some of it, come out Friday evening to the Relay for Life thing at the (current) Watauga High School stadium. Rob and Jimmy will be doing a short acoustic set from around 6:15-7:00 PM before the opening ceremonies.
