Some of you are probably aware I also play in a fun loving band, Diddly Squat. We were in rehearsal this week, and it strikes me that we mimic all the motions of a successful band but without the glory of millions of fans, fame and monetary fortune. Despite this, we all love being part of the band. Why? Well, we love the camarederie and the chance to do things that we wouldn't normally do. Apart from that, we get to dream. We imagine ourselves shredding guitars at Wembley Stadium, having an entourage of roadies, going on tour in a custom fitted bus, trashing hotel rooms, and signing albums at Shopping Centres.
Luckily for us, dreaming is free!
Ironically it is often in the dreaming that we have the most joy.
So, the thing we've been dreaming up lately is an upcoming gig "Diddly Squat Demystified" - this Saturday night at a funky cafe/bar, The Green Owl, Brisbane. It'll be an interactive evening, sharing insights of our journey, lighthearted trivia games, and we'll play a few new original songs + some old faves.
Grab some friends and join us. It's not totally free, but it'll be cheaper than seeing us at Wembley.
When: Saturday August 25 - 7:30pm (doors open 7:00pm)
Where: The Green Owl, 52 Brookes St Bowen Hills, Brisbane (licensed cafe/bar)
Tickets: $10 prebooked / $15 at the door
