Better to be Lucky Than Good

My band is experiencing a little bit of the title of this post, not that we aren't good. People have told me that if they were in a bar, drunk, and we were playing, that they wouldn't leave. That sounds like a pretty ringing endorsement.

"Green Elephant. If you're in a noisy bar and have had too much to drink, they don't suck."

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. We have a gig on June 29th through the local parks department to play at one of the local parks. It's a monthly series they put on every summer. Because we're playing the first event of the summer, the parks people asked if we would be able to go on one of the local television station's morning programs two days before the concert. It would be from 9:00 to 10:00 on Wednesday, June 27th, and we'd have to be there an hour early to set up. We thought about it for about half a second and said "Heck yeah!" (or something vaguely similar).

So because we happen to be playing in the first concert of the summer, we get to be on TV. Cool!
