What's the name of the band?
What venue?
Fort Worth would be a lot cooler of a scene if it didn't take so long to get there from Dallas
There's not as much pretensiousness
Plus, the Ridglea is an amazing venue

Oh yeah I forgot to say I am in a band called Drake but that name might change. We play classic rock and stuff like that but Our thing is it is all done acoustic. I even use brushes on the drums a lot of the time.
