The wheels on the bus.
Let’s get serious for a second. I need to confess to restarting the W4tB open mic at the worst time ever. Walking into October with the ubiquitous presence of Chicago Calling with my eyes open and a first time feature on the bill, I’m not expecting much audience for the October 1st show.
Our first show with Maxwell Baumbach had a cozy and comfortable feel to it, but it wasn’t Waiting 4 the Bus. Every time you bring your show to a new venue, whether you’ve been there or not, it takes a lot more than unpacking your adjectives and rockin’ into it. There is a rebuilding process.
I know life is busy and competition for shows is tough and a gig is a gig, but more and more we are becoming like real families and we are only seeing each other at Weddings and Funerals. I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to work.
So, if you are free on October 1st, come on down to the Green Room at Jaks Tap. Meet some folks, celebrate a new voice in our community, share your poetry, or just share yourself.
We miss and need you all.
