Buzz is a good thing.

I was hanging with Michelle at Ravari Room a few weeks ago and met two of the guys from Sundown. One of them asked me if I knew of the band and I replied that I had heard of them, but hadn't listened to them yet.

He looked visibly disappointed upon hearing this.

Look, in this town, where you can throw a rock in any direction and have a 50% chance of hitting someone who is either in a band or doesn't care about local music at all, meeting someone who has at least heard of your band shouldn't be cause for disappointment.

That's called buzz, son, and a lot of bands would kill for it.

I don't know if Sundown has even put out any albums, EPs, singles, or splits. I don't know anything about them other than what I gathered from meeting these two dudes.

But I've heard of them. Their name is in my head. Which means I will, at some point, go to a show they are playing or look them up on bandcamp or something.

Actually, they are playing tonight, and Michelle and I are already planning to go. She's friends with the dudes in Psychic Wheels, who are also playing.
