Before you leave the band room for the last time, stop and take a look around for just one moment. These four walls have seen you at your worst and at your best, they had watched families created and families fall apart, they have seen love between two people and one sided crushes, they have seen your most joyous days and maybe melancholy ones, they have seen the person you were when you walked in for the first time and now have seen the person you are for the last time. And when you turn back around and walk through the halls for the never last time, know that those walls are silently weeping and maybe you are too because you both have realized that in order to go somewhere in life, you must leave home.

  • Have some serious facial expressions
  • Reach out to the crowd
  • Catch your shit
  • No free arms or T-rex arms
  • Perform
  • Control your body and not be too tense or too loose
  • Dance
  • Spin
  • Toss
  • Contort your body (especially wrist) in uncomfortable ways
  • Be fierce
  • Make the band look good

Think twice before you say it’s easy.
