March 2nd, 2014 -- I'm interested in starting a Vampire Weekend cover band to play weekend shows around the Boston, Massachusetts area.
I played guitar in a band during college (total of a dozen local shows) and had a blast. I'm looking to get back into playing music recreationally.
If you're interested, or know anyone who might be a good fit, contact me here.
Background: Vampire Weekend is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 2006.

Toronto rapper Drizzy "Drake" Roberts brings up a valid point, the game needs changing. Sometimes we get so caught up in doing the same thing day-in-day-out that we forget to innovate. We get stuck in a cycle, a comfort-zone, where we can't seem to remember that at one point, our job felt new and overwhelming. There was a time when you first started your job where you probably felt like you were in over your head and that you might not make it. But you did make it. Now you're chugging along operating on auto-pilot. Stop it, change up your routine. Break out of the consistency and force yourself to do something different.
“If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old” ― Peter F. Drucker.
I talk to business owners every day who tell me all things they struggle with. I follow up with logical question like, "Ok, you're struggling with marketing, right? Got it. So, what are you doing to fix this?" I hear crickets, most people, when prompted, can tell you the problem if they are forced to think about it, but never get around to sitting down and writing up a solution. The game needs changing, be the <expletive> cashier.
I'm moving to Boston and today is moving day. While packing everything from my studio apartment in St. Louis, I kept myself entertained by listening to Spotify. This song randomly began playing and the lyrics seemed apt for a moment in time I'd like to remember. Tonight I will go to sleep in St. Louis and tomorrow I will go to sleep living in Boston. Here's to beginning new chapters and celebrating change.
Some things I'm in to...
