Everyone knows that superstitions are unlucky. But in tonight's rehearsal I was reminded that our band, Soul Beaver, has one superstition that we find difficult to shake. It is this:

Bad rehearsal = Good gig
Good rehearsal = Bad gig

Now, it's likely this only came about because, back in the day, we sounded rough in rehearsal and had an amazingly good first gig. Then, a few weeks later, bouyed up by a great rehearsal, we sounded awful. Whatever the reason, the idea still haunts us.

Tonight, we played really, really well. The gig is on Saturday.

Watch this space.
