First two songs from Skeletal Lightning Fest a week ago
Music: Bit By a Dead Be Pt. II by Foxing
I know most of my friends from school and such don’t listen to the same music as me and stuff, and when I offer an invite to a show they usually just say, “Yeah, I’ll totally come!” and then don’t, which is fine. I DO NOT care about you seeing my band or liking my band for that matter, we don’t get paid for any of the local shows we play, I don’t want your money. I want you to experience the fun and amazing feeling of being a part of this awesome/friendly community that I find so much joy in. Maybe it’s not for you, but you should come once or twice and maybe some drummer will crowd surf on you with his drum set or something, which is less scary and more awesome than you might think. Watch this though because Skeletal Lightning Fest was one of the best weekends of my life and I wish I could make this kind of art every day of my life
3:20 shows Nnamdi and his drums crowdsurfing
