You know what one thing that makes me laugh. One thing that makes me laugh is when people say things like musicians and promoters are so nice & friendly which to me is a load of horseshit. Some people around here can be friendly & down to earth, yes but not all of them. Some people around here can be such douchebags & unprofessional. Too many cliques & too much drama. You get the deal.
One thing to keep in mind when you want to become part of a music scene, any music scene… you’re gonna deal with a lot of huge egos. There are gonna be musicians who are gonna think they are better than you and a lot of attention whores out there. Last thing you wanna do is allow them to think they’re better than you ’cause I never did.
Not all musicians & promoters or even regular music fans are gonna like you, there’s one thing to keep in mind. Last thing you wanna do is to give a shit ’cause I don’t. I know I can be disliked by some but to be honest with you… I kind of actually enjoy it. If people around here are not hating you then you are doing something wrong.
When you want to play music, get your name out there… don’t be a part of anyone’s group and don’t be a part of anyone’s hanger-ons or cliques… just don’t give a shit about anyone but continue to play your music. That’s all you need to do. Stay out of drama in the local music community and ignore everyone. Keep doing your thing. The music is the only thing you should be caring about. I’ve had that attitude for a long while now.
