I freak out before shows. I freaked out before events I planned in my other profession as well. But not nearly as much as I freak out before shows. Especially before shows I've never been to and that will be different than what I have done before (I will be outside...at night!). Most especially when I have had waaaay to much coffee and got attacked by fire ants while packing the car (how do you stop the burning of the bites???). The freaking out stops the minute the show starts usually...so at least I have only a few more hours of spazzing to go.
If you're in the Austin area, tonight is First Thursday! Manic Trout and I will be at the Gibson Street Artists Market of off South Congress (by the dogs) from 5pm - 9pm. I'd love to see familiar faces!
