Old singer tried to quit back in November. I'm close friends with her (closer than anyone else in the band), and I supported her decision, even though it would fuck up the band. They convinced her to stay on, but a few days later they let her go anyway.
Fast forward to finding a new singer. New girl comes in first week of December and does pretty well. We hit 75% of both White Rabbit and Psycho Killer. And these guys aren't the greatest at learning new material. We continue rehearsing, and two weeks ago I suggest we play a local open mic thing.
Fast forward again to tonight. We did our set:
Where is My Mind?
Hungry Like the Wolf
Everything sounded pretty good behind the kit. No issues with timing or missing the last note of a song. She's never sang in front of a band. She did well enough without any vocal monitors. Forgot a few lyrics here and there. She shook her ass during the right spots of the songs. Ziggy was by far the crowd favorite. Old people...
I convinced them to continue to play this open mic thing every couple weeks. Demo new songs, get her to be more comfortable with a crowd, etc.
