I Smell Like An Ashtray

It's one of the downsides to being in a band.

You sit around for hours in a club pounding your free beer, waiting to play, then make $40 and come home smelling like an ashtray.

I've already showered and still wreak of cigarette smoke.

Playing smoke-free clubs is such a pleasure...

Yeah, wreaking of smoke does suck, for the people in the crowd that don't smoke too.
I'm getting old and less tolerant of smoke. It's safe to say I don't go to see as many shows simply because of that, especially when we were in Chicago.
Another bad thing about going to shows in Chicago, the amount of people in the place paying no attention what-so-ever and talking the entire time. It's annoying, even if it's not me on stage. Why did you pay or show up here just to yack.
Rant..rant..rant...I'm old and the kids are out of the house for the morning.

scensters makin' the scene... i never understood the act of going to a show but not because you wanted to see the band but because you wanted people to see you seeing the band.

there's a full scale epidemic of that in chapel hill.
