So, last Sunday was our last gig for this year.
What was really different this time around was that we actually went into a rehearsal studio for two hours before the show. (Felt like I was back in high school when the "band-thing" was still new and doing gigs was nerve-wrecking.) Ah, well, we were only able to rehearse once before this show (from the previous one) so just to be safe and confident enough, I guess.
Knowing that we were going to "warm-up" later and being comfortable enough with the now familiar sound of the venue, our soundcheck was pretty simple and short. We had about an hour before going into a studio just around the block so Numa and Sak went to get some ramen while Yusun, Midori, and I sat by the window of the studio yapping and watching the sun set. While the three of us were talking nonsense, Sak was having a blast watching Numa eat his bowl of ramen drowning in a sea of sesame seeds. Might want to check and double-check the cap of the sesame bottle before you sprinkle it on your ramen next time, yeah, Numa? The bigger tragedy was that he was constantly showered with "goma (sesame in Japanese)" calls for the rest of the evening. Anyway, we went through the set twice, changed a song in the last minute, and, so not to use up our energy in the studio (hellooo), we chilled out and bullied Numa more. lol
The event started at 6pm, half and hour earlier than usual, aozoa being the last to perform.
Our set list was:
2. a little too late
3. a quiet morning
6. the fall
Ha! I messed up most of the layered parts (so sorry, Midori!) and the intro to "fragile", but, all in all, it was great fun. It was the first time in my life to have worn a dress on stage. I swear, the people who knew me from my previous band must have had their jaws smashing to the floor. But, you know what? Under the sizzling stage lights, wearing a dress barefooted = cool = less sweat = no makeup smearing off = less uglier sight. So, there, from now on, I shall wear a dress as a stage "uniform".
Emotionally (mentally, whichever) too, the show was very enlightening in many ways. But that's just another long story for the rest of the aozoans, I guess. (Sorry, guys.)
Well, enough writing for a drunk, eh?
I'm not so sure if I can be coherent longer than this.
Think I'll just have a few more drinks later before calling it a day.
Everyone, have a merry tipsy Christmas and a peaceful holiday!
