I Want To Start A #Rock Band In #RVA

by Shelton Bumgarner

One of the things I learned during my time in Seoul is I’m a really good singer. I’m really good at singing Radiohead songs and I also enjoy writing lyrics, even though as of the moment I know nothing about music. I’m currently working on a novel, but I find myself going to karaoke nights around Richmond and realizing again and again that I am a good enough singer to be the lead singer of a rock band.

But this is not going to happen over night or easily.

I don’t live in Richmond’s Fan district and I barely have enough money to eat, much less go to practice — or gigs — in the Fan on a regular basis. But I’m hoping maybe if I have some reason to have more money, I’ll feel inspired to hit the pavement for more work in response.

And, yet, I just don’t know. I think I probably should kinda just focus on the novel for the time being. It’s highly unlikely anyone will pay any attention to me, no matter how hard I try. But I really enjoy performing and singing and I think if a few people gave me a chance, I could probably do well enough to be a decent lead singer of a rock band.

But we’ll see, I guess.

If you live in the RVA area and are interested in my idea, please contact me at migukin (at) gmail (dot) com.
