I am very happy because tomorrow, me and three other friends are getting together to jam and create music. We plan on participating in Battle of the Bands this year. Most people get involved with the Battle early, perhaps their freshman year of high school. I didn’t start playing guitar until sophomore year, and even after I got to be good, I’ve only now decided to participate. I am a senior in high school. I am crazy about Christian punk music. I love bands like relientK, mxpx, hangnail, and weezer. I enjoy a bunch of other bands too, but those are my particular favorites. I’ve always wanted to play like them, to sing like them. For the longest time, I wished I was a boy so I could have a voice similar to M@ Thiessen’s from relientK. It didn’t take long for me to decide it is better to be a girl because of all the hot, punk boys that I can have crushes on!
I’m really hoping that we can come up with some awesome songs with a good, Godly message because I would love to graduate from high school with an amazing Battle victory. The band is made up of Austin, Sarah, Dan, and me. Austin will be on guitar. I’ll be on rhythm. Sarah on drums and percussion. Dan on the bass. We are going to have a wide variety of music. Slow, melodical. Fast, punk. Rock. It’s also really cool because there are girls in the band! There is one other band with a girl and she is really good, but for some reason, I can’t really see her as a “girl.” She doesn’t look girly. Sarah and I– we’re girly for sure! So, that in itself is saying something.
I am just rambling. I guess it’s late and I am pumped about tomorrow. Plus, I needed something to write about and this was the first thing that came to mind.
