What kind of maniac can get to 30 shows in one month? The kind we want shooting music for us, and damn if we don’t have him. The indefatigable Rich Orris, maker of fine Drupals, capturer of fine performance moments and husband of our talented calendar editor and writer Jen Nathan Orris, has shared his agenda at unofficiallyasheville.com. We asked him what’s the most challenging aspect of his endeavor. “To have faith that sometimes doing ridiculous things are worth it,” Rich says.
Any advice for others attempting such feats?
– “Watch your liver. You have to wake up tomorrow and do this again.
– You probably have other things in your life. Don’t forget about them.
– If you aren’t having fun, leave. You don’t want to get jaded by a band you don’t like.
– Don’t feel old, feel old school.”
Will he make it? Can he survive? Follow his adventures here. We’ll keep you posted, too.
