The Band is Back: And This Time, it's Serious!

I've mentioned our band before...the one Liz and I formed and call Let's Make Out. Until this weekend, it was mostly just a joke...an idea we talked about, but never really did anything about. Dave would ask "How's Let's Make Out?" and we'd say, "Still theoretical." Well, theorize no more friends! This weekend, we had our first official band practice. Liz hooked up her ax to the amp and I tried to pretended it hasn't been forever since I used my voice for anything other than screaming Kelly Clarkson songs in my car. We plan on tackling an open mic night soon and then, as Liz said, "After our first open mic appearance, we'll immediately be the darlings of the local Coffee House scene. We'll outgrow that by July, and start playing gigs at the Casbah. This will lead to a short but flattering write up in Pitchfork, and by September we'll be signed to the same label as Sufjan Stevens and touring Europe." Totally happening.

I just thought I should give you, our loyal friends and readers, a heads up so you can brag about "knowing" us before we were big. Also, Let's Make Out merch is gonna be huge!!!

Well I'm glad in all honesty to know you while you're still obscure and relatively humble. :)

As someone who's sung/guitared in bands for years and recorded CDS and stuff, I feel your excitement and have to tell you - it really DOES happen JUST LIKE YOU SAY!

Kinda...

Awesome! It's so worth it to at least do what you did this weekend, because then you can just casually be like, "yeah, I'm in a band."

I'm glad you told us, because I want in on the ground floor as your graphic designer.

Apparently I'm too late to offer a solution to your graphic design needs. I have a portfolio and everything.

Maybe we'll have to have a graphic design off. We can concoct challenges and Miranda Kerr plus some famous GA (do those exist?) can host and Liz and I will judge the winner.

I just totally invented Bravo's next big reality competition show.
