Last week at our booking meeting, as we were tossing around brilliant ideas about upcoming shows, I mentioned I wanted to throw an "End of The World Party" on December 21. I have a few local bands that are interested, and it would be an all-out crazy rage fest.
"Do anything and everything you want to do. Go out with a bang."
sparked some lengthy discussion. Some of my team members were
enthusiastic. Others cringed, (with good reason, I guess). It's not an
easy topic to wrap your brain around:
"We're celebrating the Apocalypse,
now?" "How do you possibly decide what band you want to hear on the
last day of your life?" "I bet a ton of people would leave their tabs
A LOT of tough decisions go into planning the last show ever, and needless to say, we didn't come to any concrete conclusions
But the topic stayed on my mind for a while, and it inspired me.
Why wait until Dec 21 to live like it's your last day alive? Why not go
out with a bang EVERY chance you can! Do the things you always want to
do. Travel to the cities that interest you the most. Spend time with the
people you love. Find the job you are passionate about. Spend the money
you are saving for the proverbial 'rainy day'.
And for crying out LOUD: have some FUN. When the weekend rolls
around, you have a choice. You can stay home and watch reruns on cable
TV...(How many episodes of Friends are there??) or you can go Rocke out to an epic show right here in Hermosa Beach.
Friday we are throwing a wild DISCO party, Saturday, we have an
amazing JOURNEY tribute, and Sunday, we have ROBBY KREIGER of The Doors.
(THE f*cking DOORS, dude!!)
If the world ends suddenly, I want
to be singing "Don't Stop Believing" at the top of my lungs, and
throwing back shots of Fireball Whisky.
These are the Days of Our Lives. Go live a little.
