Incubate should be – and fortunately is – rock-n-roll. I am not. That much is clear after five days of being at the festival. For instance: I woke up at 7:30 A.M. this morning. To make things worse, I started my day immediately after I got out of bed. Without any hesitation. I guess there’s still a lot for me to learn.
Once I got downstairs, I noticed some stuff on the floor and realised it belongs to Maria & The Mirrors, the band that we’ve ‘adopted’ for the weekend. I walked upstairs again to get something and noticed the door to the guest room was wide open. “Dude, where’s my band?!?” The room was empty. No Maria and no Mirrors. What the f$#@?
The last time I saw them was last night, just before I said goodbye to rock-n-roll for the day. Empty beds. Totally non rock-n-roll, I got a bit worried. I would probably be the first ever to lose an entire band in Tilburg and immediately took measures.
My girlfriend told me not to worry. She’s obviously a lot more rock-n-roll than I am. I guess I should just take her advice and let it be. Let the artists be the artists and have them prove to be worthy of a rock-n-roll status. The only thing they have to worry about, is their gig tonight.
So…. Curious to see if Maria & The Mirrors are all about rock-n-roll? Then go to Paradox tonight at 8:30 P.M. If they show up, they’re the real thing. I’ll be there to see for myself and I hope to see you there as well. Just so I can say: “Dude, there’s my band!”
