A little over a week ago, I made an announcement that I would be covering the Rock Allegiance festival in Chester, PA. I couldn't have been more thrilled, and frankly tears of joy kept welling up every time I thought about it.
Well....unfortunately, a lot can change in a week. It was just one thing after another going wrong. First it was just minor things, like figuring out how the hell we were going to get across the country, then it was health problems and then it was broken bones and gut feelings that something wasn't right.
I am no longer going to the Rock Allegiance festival, and I'm not going to lie, I am upset about it. I've had a few people just tell me to "try harder" and that the whole gut feeling thing is just an "excuse", but with everything going on at once, I'm taking it as an omen that something terrible was going to happen if we went.
I tried every option I could, but it just wasn't in the cards, I guess. It might not be the same thing, but I am still really thankful that I could have gone, that I was good enough to even be given a pass in the first place. This is the first time I've ever had to turn down a pass after being given it, and hopefully the last.
Other chances will come around, and I promise I am trying to get back in the swing of things. I have a series in mind about international, lesser known bands, and I need to start thinking of the Immortal Music Awards soon. This will be the fourth annual one, and I am hoping I can figure out some more fun ways to get you guys involved. If you have any ideas at all, please let me know.
