Pep band (post 375 ^.^)
I was just at an awesome game. Awesome as in a bunch of awesome people in the band showed up for pep band. My bro Robin, this girl who was in Austria for the past 6 months, my former section leader, my other bro.. people were missing -GLARES- but that’s their loss. We got to partake in those awesome conversations that band kids have, get some awesome food, play music, what band kids love to do. I also met this kid I met briefly at this band festival, he’s coming to my school next semester, he says he makes beats. hmmmm.
Around 3rd quarter, our director forced the band to leave, she says it’s cause of time constraints, but really, the situation was getting tense. This game was talked about. For months, apparently. This HS and the away HS are the type to fight. And I mean FIGHT. Not school rivalries, but people gonna get arrested and seriously hurt. When we were forced to leave the school, this cop forced us back in. Then we got forced back out, then our director tried to force us off school property. Butch, it’s cold, and our parents aren’t here. This could easily become a dangerous situation.
Me and my little brother got into my Dad’s car right before this giant crowd of people showed up. I took my horn home, forgot my damn concert folder. I’ll spend all my practicing focusing on my solo, contest is next month. I get on Facebook upon getting home, see a status about shooting goin on at the game. I hope sousaphones are bulletproof, cause if they are, I’m switching pretty quickly.
I’m getting news on what happened next at the moment.
I got a story to tell you, we almost died -Older bro.
After I left, a car pulled up to where all the band kids were, Doors open, music blasting. They came out, beat a random dude’s ass. Another car pulled up and attacked the first car, a third car pulled by slow as ever, window rolled down. Someone stuck their hand out the window, actin like they were gonna shoot. Cops swarmed the area, accused my band family who stuck together as a combined effot of being a gang, said they’d arrest them one at a time. They all got home safe, as far as I know. My friends that didn’t go to the game, I’m really glad they stayed home, I don’t know how they would fare in this kind of situation, especially after more and more people leave. I can get overprotective of those that I love, this is no exception.
