AHHH! My band just got its first gig opening for a major artist!! AMA!
Update: alright all I’m signing off for the night. Thank you SO much to everyone who participated, and sent encouraging words, and even those who came with harsh words about the music industry.
This was an absolute blast, and a major confidence booster. Please listen to Yard Act. They’re a killer band that’s pretty freakin unique, and we’re so stoked to be playing with them.
Also, you can stream 91X, 91X Loudspeaker (hey Tim Pyles, you’re the man!) from anywhere… and come visit San Diego! There’s some great bands playing here like The Havnauts, Quicksands, Wild Wild Wets, Mdrn Hstry, Volclays, Evenings Empire, and tons more.
Hi Reddit - I'm Charlie, from the San Diego band King Whisker.
After playing in bands since high school, I finally just booked my first major gig, opening for the UK band Yard Act on their international tour. Built our own recording studio out (You can see the whole thing on our Instagram), and are hoping to tour our album soon.
Ask me anything, about being in a band that's trying to make it, recording an album, or simply "are you really happy right now?!" to which the answer is "YUP"!
I'm also seeing King Gizzard tonight for the first time - they inspired us to build our own studio and record our own album, so today is just a great freakin day!!! EEEEEE!
