Setting: Behind the merch table at the TLA. Empty venue with scattered musicians. Sound checks, sound checks, and more sound checks. Who knew they took so freaking long?
I had the honor of being Free Energy’s merch girl for the evening. And what an experience it was… The five-piece rock band from Philly was wrapping up their tour with co headliners Foxy Shazam. Their faces portrayed equal parts exhaustion and excitement. Sounds about right, doesn’t it?
