The Phoenix Within - Rock
Grinding, back in my day (oh so many moons ago) was a type of really, really, really close partner-dancing. Where basically two dancers rubbed and bumped (R.I.P. Kelly) their bodies against each other, most often with a female dancer rubbing her buttocks against a male dancer's crotch area (please note that any other combination of partners is also acceptable...because..."not that there's anything wrong with that.")
Today though I'll be talking about the state of grinding in 2019. That oppressive, tedious, and seemingly without end aspect of working hard on your skill, business, trade or project.
These past two months The Phoenix Within has been grinding. Grinding hard. Although we have taken a break from live performances we have set time aside to focus on our song-writing, practice our instruments and even started to write and record something new and special that we honestly can't wait to share with all of you.
All the while maintaining full time jobs, attending classes, exercising, reading, keeping up with school schedules, paying child support (this one maybe a fib), paying rent (also maybe a fib) and doing community service (The band takes recycling seriously...I mean come on the ocean needs us ya'll).
Today we wanted to share with you these news and also some pictures of what we have been up to and let you know that on Thursday April 4 at 8 pm we will be be going live and performing at Debonair Music Hall in Teaneck NJ., a few of our new songs. So please come out, bring a friend and some ear plugs because it's going to get fu%$ing loud.
- with love TPW.
