For the past 2 years I’ve ushered in Virgo Szn (the only “szn” that counts) with an album release party. Some of ya’ll have attended. And all of ya’ll who have attended know that I throw a good party. I’ve been writing, yes, and I have enough material to release two albums if I wanted to, but that’s beside the point (as if I’m going to actually drop the music anyway). The album release parties of years past served two purposes. Admittedly, one of those purposes was to stroke my own ego--to prove to myself (and others) that I can organize these types of events, perhaps even to showcase my deep network and competency within the creative space. More importantly, the other purpose was to connect people by avenue (or the excuse) of my music. You wouldn’t imagine how many “mini-reunions” occur at these events, but I suppose that’s a normal byproduct of having a large circle of acquaintances and very few close friends. Ambivalence to the levels and definition of “friendship” is a byproduct of social nomadism, but again, I digress. The first album release party was called Ambivert, after all. aHa ha..
