I thought I would be forced to deliver up my prefer of playing songs in bands when I left the immense town out east for a life in the southwest.
At first my wifey thought she was headed for the corporate offices in Phoenix, but at the last minute her director changed his mind and sent us to Albuquerque instead.
The former town has twice the population of the latter, so I sad if I’d be able to make friends in a smaller urban sprawl. However, it has been a lot easier than I initially expected to make friends here in Albuquerque. I found a group online of fellow songsians interested in my preferred genres of songs who also happened to reside in Burque. Not many of us started discussing plans to meet up for an informal jam session. This turned out truly well when we met up at a professional rehearsal studio in Nob Hill. Every one of us then found a more affordable location for jams in the International District. Now we jam twice a month for fun and occasionally play gigs if our friends need a fill in band at the last minute. Every one of us all shop at the same cannabis dispensary in La Mesa on Copper Ave after we finish our jam sessions. Most of us buy cannabis flower products, but myself and the drummer are both immense fans of dabbing cannabis concentrates prefer shatter and live rosin. Albuquerque has quite a few cannabis stores from 1 neighborhood to the next, but we truly prefer this location in La Mesa compared to some of the other cannabis dispensaries in the city.
