Me and Nick Petree were walking to Mike’s Corner Store to get some duct tape. On the way, we were playing “Lovin'”, a song we wrote, him on his guitar and mini-amp and me on my keyboard. They didn’t have any, and they recommended Kowalski’s. So we went there, and two ladies came up and were all, “Are you guys in a band?” and we were all, “Yeah,” and they were all, “What are you called?” and we were all, “Half Moon Battery,” and they were all, “Can you play a song for us?” and we were all, “Yeah,” and we are all beltin’ out some lovin’. That’s roughly how it went down. Then the manager was all, “Hey guys, you can’t do that in here, I’m gonna have to ask you to leave,” and we were all, “Awesome, we’re rock stars now,” and the ladies were all, “We’re gonna add you guys on myspace,” and they haven’t yet.
Then we went to target and got the duct tape, went back to Nick’s, and duct taped the neck of his old acoustic to my keyboard. We added a duct tape strap and BOOM. I have a keytar! Kind of! It’s really cool. I’ll post pics when I can. It’s super fun to play.
I’m pleased that I was able to belt out some lyrics in front of some total strangers. I don’t think I would’ve been able to do that a year ago, but now I’m all, “Self esteem!”
