My son has his first big gig tonight!!

My son takes to the stage for the first time tonight. Sure he has done plays, and musicals and nice safe school stuff, but this is grown up playing in a band in a pub in Derby. Shriek! I am full of maternal concern. What if he gets a bunch of beer cans thrown on stage, what if the crowd are hostile or worse - not in the slightest bit interested?

Lots of what ifs and I am expecting to have to patch up a bruised ego when he returns and praying that it wont be a bruised body as well (cans). He soooo loves his band. He plays bass and is the lead singer. From what I have heard of the practices I would not pay a lot to go and hear them. They are 17, raw, experimental -or maybe just crap. (visions of more cans) Or maybe I am just getting old, don't understand today's underground scene. I consider myself a trendy mom, certainly a MILF - in fact that was my title while he was in year 11 (much to his cringing embarrassment)but perhaps I am a teensy weensy bit out of touch. Perhaps there is nothing to worry about ... lets hope eh?

Relax QV, and be happy you raised a boy that wants to experience the ups and downs of life and not just watch them on the TV. (or read about them on blogs.)

Hey Craig, you are right! I need to stand tall and stop worrying. Whats a few cans compared to the experience of playing live. Carpe Deium! (May not have spelt that right - but you will know what I mean.)

You're not going to sneak in the back of the pub and take a look for yourself?
Guess that's not the thing to do.
Ooooh. Cant wait to hear how he gets on.
And the groupies he'll no wonder attract...
Kxx.

Unfortunately I had a client tonight, K so I could not go. His Dad has gone along to keep the peace, or join in the brawl should one happen (remember the footie?) So all I can do is wait. Apparently the place is a bit of a dive, but as my son said, "I have to start somewhere". Bless him.

Is that another little dig for you QV, from dear BOBO?
