“The first show on a tour is like kissing someone for the first time. It’s a kind of wonderful blur. It happens in a flash of blinding light as if time has no weight or meaning and then, suddenly, it’s over. After the initial thrilling, terrifying dive into it, the experience never again has the same intensity. Some of the magic, wired energy slips from your hands – maybe because your nerves have settled – and though you strive to reclaim it every night thereafter, you do settle into a workaday routine of gig after gig.”

~ Juliana Hatfield, from her memoir, When I Grow Up

Everybody’s watching,
everybody’s looking.
She is such a sucker,
he don’t want to fuck her.”
