“Once we got fifth in that community college talent show, our popularity skyrocketed,” the singer, I want to say his name is Garret now, said. “We had a goal in mind when we first made this band but after touring a twenty mile radius around our house for a couple weeks, it all went downhill. Jimmy quit, Jody got married. I shoulda known we’d never get, you know, to be any fucking better.”
The dude’s parents and the three guys that show up to all the gigs were disappointed to hear of the break but are excited to see what pizza joints and garage parties this new venture will take him to.
“I can't wait to see all the telephone polls with gig flyers stapled to them that have just my name on them....with 'formerly of' and my old band name in parentheses behind it. It's a new chapter for me. I feel like going solo will really bring out the deep, poetic lyrics of my soul. Like they say, when life hands you lemons, it opens a door.”
See whatever his name is this weekend playing his first solo show at the 6th Annual Kirkwood Chili Cookoff and Yoga Appreciation Festival at 1:30 pm.
