Author and comedian Brian Costello shares more notes from the rock underground

Posted on 11.10.12 at 02:00 PM

The time has come for you to go read some real live literature about band life. If you've ever read Brian Costello's The Enchanters vs. Sprawlburg Springs, a hilarious satirical novel about being in a suburban band, then you prolly wanna read his most recent writing. Here's an autobiographical account of the first show he ever played, in all of its understated, comedic glory.

[Editor's note: You may also want to read Costello's hilarious short story "The Fall and Rise of 'The Worst Commercial Ever Made,'" an Editor's Pick in our 2012 Pure Fiction issue: "The epic tale of 'Lincoln Carpeting Factory Outlet Superstore: Where We Roll Out the Red Carpet of Nonstop Savings!'"]
