It just hit me like an epiphany, this Halloween evening! When I was a kid, I was a punk rocker for at least a half dozen Halloweens, I’d spray my hair wild colors, and get into the role, before hitting the neighborhood with a pillowcase soon to be filled with treats. I’d get into the character too, ham it up.
What does this have to do with my 42 year old self, reliving the dream? I don’t know! But for anyone who does gigs, is in a band, etc., do you sort of get into a role, and/or wear clothing/gear/etc. that fits the genre you play? I want to start playing with other musicians soon, and maybe find other somewhat newbies, and form a band. What “costume” do you wear when you go play? Or is it just jeans, casual wear, normal clothes?
