Rock n Roll is a dirty business

By Anonymous - 09/11/2020 23:01

Today, I was in a band with some friends and we got our first gig at a local festival, but I'd already agreed to work serving drinks at the festival. My bandmates got really annoyed and kicked me out of the band. They then went ahead and performed the song that I WROTE, without me, at the festival where i was working. FML

Why not back out of serving drinks?

If you're serious about your music you need to be putting your music first if you want to be a successful musician. Your band mates seem like they know this as they don't want someone who wont prioritize the band the same way they do as a member. Take this as a learning opportunity if you make amends with the band or join/form a new one.

probably a stable job with a catering company. wouldn't be smart to give that up for an unstable band job

I'll bet the drinks were better than your song.

Dude, you are being mean. Fuck you.

I’ll agree. That was cruel. Then again Dick Pencil has a habit making comments and acting as his name implies.

Look, serving drinks would just make the whole band seem uncool and would jeaopardise their future. Do you understand nothing about rock n roll? As for performing your song, wtf did you expect?

Which is the bigger problem? The festival having to replace a server, or your band having to replace a musician? Who do you think guests will remember? The servers or the performers?

This is--literally--an episode of Parks and Rec. Is the name of your band Mouse Rat?
