THE VOICE OF ENERGY VOL. 067
The COVID scare lockdown we undertook this week after the kid was exposed has been lifted. Meaning I can get out into the world again. Do I want to though? Kind of. Will I be able to do anything considering all the shows I had tickets to/plans on seeing that have been cancelled over the past week? Doubtful. Am I concerned? Every moment of every day.
The last live event I was able to attend was Tool's tour kickoff in Eugene, OR, which I covered for Heavy Consequence. It was my first time seeing the band since I caught them performing to complete indifference here in Portland as opening act for Rollins Band back in 1992. As you'd expect, and as I hint at in the piece, people were far more cavalier about wearing masks than I would have liked. My reference to it being a potential superspreader event was edited out of my review.
