my band is imploding. Yay!

Oh yes.

Immediately after playing at our largest venue to date, the Roseland (capacity 400), it looks like Templeshock will be dissolving. Kaput. Finito.

I went to Josh’s tonight for practice. After practice, Josh and Brian said they wanted to discuss “taking some time” after the Roseland gig, “going in a new direction”, and even a name change.

For me, who has been looking for a good way to exit for about 3 months, this sounds perfect. So, the Roseland will be the last show for me. I can move on to another band, or maybe doing some home recording on my own, which I’ve really been wanting to do, or maybe just sit on my ass for a while.

I think Brian has been feeling the same way too.

What about the new Templeshock website? I don’t think all the work I’ve put into it is for nothing. First of all, I now know CSS2 and HTML, phpBB administration, and Photoshop. Second, if I want to do something with strdup.com or something else, I can reuse a lot of what I did. Heh heh. CSS2 is cool.

The final tricky thing is that even though this is it for Templeshock (at least from my perspective) I still need to SELL TICKETS for the Roseland show, because we have to recoup the sizable deposit we put down (well I didn’t put it down but I guess Josh did?) So I guess I’ll still try to hit my friends up to buy tickets but it won’t be the all-out push it was going to be. (BTW I think this is the worst part of playing music — cajoling your friends to come to your stupid gigs.) Maybe they will want to come to see my band possibly implode on stage?

I feel a great weight lifting soon.

    Still and all, it sucks that you put so much time and effort into the whole thing and didn’t even get to cut a demo for your efforts. I think good bands are good friends first.

    In any event, enjoy the freedom!
