It's been a long time since I've played a gig around here (maybe 2 years?) and it's a paying one at that! I can't wait. The group I'm playing with is doing a 40 song setlist (Plus 5-10 crowd favorites). It will be happening on boxing night, at a local club that we all frequent. After all is said and done, we should each be able to pocket around $50. That's pretty good, considering what most places would try to pay you. A lot of the bars around here try to pay people in beer :/ . I'll probably use the money to fix up my bass and buy some new knobs for it :p
I can't wait! We're doing up the setlist now. It's mostly classic rock songs, the kinds that people can dance to. If we draw a big enough crowd, we might get called back every once and a while for some other gigs. Hopefully.
