I write about a lot of bands for Metblogs, and I have this secret fantasy that there's a band out there paying attention. One day I'm going to walk into a show to find a charming, enthusiastic, and well-dressed band with one member in a costume, and they are going to have a trumpet and a lot of extra drums for the other band members to play and whistling in three of their songs. They'll open the set with a cover of the Tragically Hip's "Scared" and close with a cover of Nat King Cole's "When Sunny Gets Blue" that involves all the members of the other bands on stage with them.

If this ever happens, it will be time for me to retire in style from the show-going business, I think.
