When I first came out to the coast, it was just for a long weekend, but my band had been booked at a regional music festival; At the time we thought this could be our “big break” but it turned out that we were a single of 40 bands playing that weekend.
Both of us realized a lot of those bands were better than we were, as well as had the collective realization that we wouldn’t be finding a big break, however on the other hand, I fell in love with the town, so as soon as I could I moved back. I was still trying to be a musician, as well as started to book gigs with several unusual local cannabis dispensaries. This was not something that happened in our old town, but out here many cannabis dispensaries had a smokers lounge where they would host live comedy, music, or open mic evenings. My number one locale to play is a cannabis shop called Old Head, because it replaced the oldest “head shop” in the city. Back in the day before legalization there were no cannabis dispensaries, only head shops where you could get rolling papers as well as glass bongs. This cannabis dispensary pays in money, but they also have an option to take your spend our savings in discounted weed. I can take beach home a hundred bucks, or I can take a hundred as well as forty dollars worth of any cannabis I choose. You guess I option cannabis over money every time! Cannabis doesn’t spend our savings the bills, but when I am stoned then I don’t care so much about the bills I cannot pay.
