Friday Five

UNO. I was talking to Jonathan the other night and said, “We lost 4 people. I’m a multi-instrumentalist. Use me.” After my concert last night I went over to Chris’ to rehearse and he handed me his guitar, “you’re not playing violin on this song.” YES. So after work we’re going to Guitar Center to pick me out an electric guitar. I’ve played acoustic, but never electric and never ever live. I’m so fucking excited.

DOS. Megan, our new bass player, just opened up the cutest little boutique and invited me to come in and help her manage it. And she’d give me complete freedom as far as scheduling. Ummm. Yes. It’s down south so I have to move first, but as soon as I’m into my new house and situated I’m dropping to part time at my current job and slowly phasing myself out. Screw this real job thing.

TRES. I can’t believe it’s only been one week since last Friday’s fiasco. Time flies when you’re having fun? Being dramatic? My concept of time is seriously screwed

CUATRO: Megan and I are having a hair party tomorrow! She has the most incredible dreads and I drunkenly asked her to do it to my hair, but now that we’re sober, she instead offered to dye my hair and put in a couple cool dread extensions. Probably a better idea. Equally exciting. 

CINCO. Can we start a conversation on when all of you are going to come visit me in Austin? Tweetup whatever I don’t give a fuck. Let’s party. macencheeze thefredasaurusrex ?

In case you missed it, I apparently decided to express my commitment issues in hair dye form.

There is definitely purple in my hair and I am definitely playing at a church for a bunch of conservative old people tonight. 

Lexi, making herself unhireable since 2003

Every day I feel better about this, and every day I get more excited for the future. We played until 3 AM last night and it was fantastic. We wrote so much great music. Sometimes things end to give way to something better. I walked up to John today, gave him a hug, as told him I was sorry. Life is too short to hold grudges. I’m happy.

We had band practice last night and it was great. We played for 4 hours and wrote 3 new songs. I’m using this amazing octave pedal so I can sound like a cello when I want (which I always want, the cello is so beautiful.) We’re so much tighter with just 4 people which was a constant struggle when you have 8 weird freaking instruments in the band. We’re down to the core and that’s okay. I mean, who reeeeally needs keytar? I’m feeling happier about this and excited to push forward. I was receiving calls, texts, FB messages, and I’m sure a few smoke signals from people wanting to know if we had broken up so I finally made a public announcement on the Mighty Mountain Facebook page about what happened and assured everyone we would continue to push forward. That hopefully put an end to all the rumors. Or maybe it created more, but regardless, it closed that chapter which we needed. 15 minutes after posting that a pretty important musician that had been flirting with the idea of managing us called me directly. I told him what was going on but that we were working our asses off and had some awesome things coming. He was intrigued and told me he’d bring the gang to our next show and if all went well we could get together afterwards and continue the conversation about management. I guess it’s really true, there’s no such thing as bad press. Everyone is watching us to see if we’ll fall apart but if we wow them, (which I know we can) we might just be better off than when we started. I’m starting to realize that maybe this was supposed to happen, and if my best friends weren’t happy who am I to force then to stay? I am feeling pretty shitty about some of the things I said to them. I think it’s time to apologize and move on. No hard feelings. And if we meet again someday, it’ll be beautiful.

Let’s talk about your music today. One thing that puzzles me is the make-up of your audience seems to be, predominantly, young boys.

Same.
