A year ago today, along with a friend I’d dragged to visit me from another edge of the country, I went to a small, tightly packed pub. I saw this little band play their first headline show, then we went out drinking.
This was my initiation into the Birmingham scene.
I’d been drinking in the same venues before, I’d seen local bands play before, I just never linked the two up until this point.
I can say, with all honesty, that Wide Eyed ruined my life. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
