Saw these guys at a small show, that they did between bigger ones for a tour they were on a few years ago.
A damn fine performance!!! Actually felt compelled to buy a shirt. . . . .at the merch table though, they treated my friend and I, at first, like we were just some dumb chicks who came cuz our guys did...or whatever......uhhhh, no, I'm a musician, a fan (as of that night), and have actually read the stories you refer to, as if I don't read.
But, to tell the truth, I enjoy being underestimated. It leaves so many opportunities to surprise people, and sometimes, make them look dumb.
No one ever sees me coming. 👍
