Jake had a cross country meet up in Bolder, which is about an hour away - when there's no traffic. Unfortunately, there was traffic going both ways. Coming home was worse because it was the rush hour.
And we felt rushed. We needed to get home fast so we could get ready for the evening's event, which was Jake's band, I Riot, playing a show. Jake showered, gulped down a quick dinner, loaded up his drums, and we were on our way.
The band played in a small saloon - okay, it was a bar. Am I a terrible mom for letting my 17 year old play in a bar? It did feel kinda weird. But they now have a promoter and she really wanted them to play this venue because there were going to be agents there since it was part of a tour. All the parents were there and the
They were the opening band for two other groups. They put on a great show and it seemed like everyone in the place really liked them. They stayed for one song from the next band and then it was time to go home. After all, they're still just high school boys and have to go to school tomorrow.
by the way.... the Rockies won tonight! Woo-hoo!
I'm going to bed now.
