Today I played at a gig. Very professional sounding. I made so many mistakes it was annoying, but oh well. I didn’t do too bad.
It was a woman’s health thingummy. I was pre-entertainment. Mainly to the people going inside, and the smokers coming out. But hey.
We didn’t actually go to the main event. One, it cost the very earth we stand on, and two, it wasn’t going to be the most….modest of shows, being french themed, with scarily dressed performers walking around outside. Seriously, some people have no sense of when they should be embarassed.
However playing went well. I got to wear a great medieval themed dress that Mum found at the opshop once. When I get photos, I will post them. I actually forgot I was streaming, so I didn’t exactly prepare.
I don’t get nervous when I perform. Well, not much. Once I got so nervous I almost died, and since then, I figure being nervous is just too much effort, cause in all honestly, it’s not going to help me play better. If anything, it’s going to make it worse. So I just don’t think about it until it’s happening. Then I get nervous. While I’m doing it.
Tonight I wasn’t nervous at all, since I didn’t really have an audience anyway. Still, it was good. I like performing. I don’t enjoy it too much while I’m actually doing it, but I like the thought of having done it.
Makes me feel like I’m good at music after all.
