MODESTO, CA – Feeling bored with his day to day life doing nothing, a local California musician wants to go back to simpler times when his amp would stop working mid-show with five people in the audience.
Jason Ned, 29, has been playing live shows since his teenage years and hasn’t played a concert since the beginning of quarantine in March. Ned is reportedly frustrated and eager to get back to playing DIY shows with no one in attendance.
“I miss the days when I would go up on stage and something with my gear would go terribly wrong. I want to go back in time to do it all over again. Now all I do is sit at my parent’s house wondering when I’ll be able to rock again,” said Ned.
Ned’s band, Flowers for Gene, is contemplating playing a drive-in theatre local show, claiming it’ll be somewhat reminiscent of their DIY shows, the only difference being a couple of cars in attendance instead of a few audience members.
“We might prefer the drive-in shows compared to our usual concerts since cars are louder and take up more room than people. We normally only have five to six people at a show, and three to four cars is definitely better,” said Ned’s bandmate Nick Detten.
