BLAMMO 2 PARTY!!
October 20, 2008
So, On the 18th I had my release show at Wax Trax records and Kilgore books.
I woke up that morning with an odd feeling. All of the thought I had put into an actual speech went away. I couldn’t remember anything I had actually planned on saying for this. And also, I became afraid that nobody would show up! That I was going to completely waste the bands time playing for nobody!!That the nice stores that had allowed me to use their space for this would be really pissed off at me. I’m a nobody cartoonist in the world, who am I kidding to think anybody would show up???
Who do I think I am? I can barely draw!!
Kilgore asked me to do this. They had convinced me that I was famous enough around Denver to draw people to an event. I have my doubts still. But, In my career I will have to do a lot of talks and q&a sessions about my comics, so I agreed. You have to die to go to heaven, right? So, Give me my embarrassment. I am ready to suffer for my art.
The show started at 5:00 o clock.
People actually came too! Despite the fact that there were a million other things going on that night!I got a chance to talk to a lot of people who read my comics during the concert part of the night as people drifted in and out. I noticed that I really don’t have a specific audience and that just as many older people read my comics as younger people do. a few took pictures with me and I thought the bands did a great job! Some of my friends who I really wanted to be there didn’t show up. The scumbags!
Afterwards, whoever was left at the end of the night came over to Kilgore to ask me questions and listen to me talk to the floor. I was very afraid but I made it!
I will post pictures once I get them!
