I saw one of my favorite bands last night for the third time. Each show I’ve seen has been an utterly unique combination from their extensive catalog, even though they play some of the same fan favorites at all their shows. Last night there were deep cuts for the die-hards mixed in with lots of new stuff for the band to work on.
The best way to have new stuff to work on is to build a back catalog. And the best way to build a back catalog is to work on new stuff today.
