Olympia, WA - Here at the Voyeur, a bar I have spent a grand total of 20 minutes in before tonight, they have a lineup of traveling bands from all over the West Coast.
All of them, or at least what I can hear over my headphones blaring Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers, are good.
But still, no one is here. Maybe ten people are listening in the lounge, and they didn't charge me to sit in the square bar. Thank God.
Anyway, to quote INXS, "makes me wonder. Wonder, wonder."
How do small local bands make money by touring? I mean, they probably don't and are just trying to raise their status by word of mouth. But still, I kind of feel bad for them.
But not bad enough to pay a cash cover to get closer.
Not when I am broke, and can hear them just fine from here.
I love you, but you're suckers.
Also, the Bulleit Bourbon is real cheap here. Real cheap.
