Hey, that was a great set! You guys are fantastic. Your sound reminds me a little of the Lilac Time. Oh, you haven’t heard of them? Right.

Look, I’ve got some bad news. I love your band! Yes, that’s usually a good thing, but you see, when I really get into a band, it means that your music appeals to bookish 40-somethings like me, and not to great numbers of young people who go to shows or buy a lot of recorded music. And that means that your appeal is probably going to be quite limited, no matter how good you are. You’re going to be critically adored, but criminally underrated. Sorry about that.

I don’t know what it is, but for some reason when I like bands, they never seem to do very well. Like this band on this t-shirt I’m wearing? Yeah, it’s too bad they were never able to break out before their guitarist quit. Great band though. You should check ’em out.

How much for one of your t-shirts? Never mind, I’ll check it out at the merch desk. Hey, thanks for the show, and keep going! I can guarantee you that whatever you release, a tiny group of middle-aged men will be ready to snap it up.
