Greet Expectations

The members of evening are ready to ditch their day jobs, but not their newfound friends

"I just think that any band that's somewhat artistic nowadays, people automatically lump it into the Radiohead category. It's pretty hard to dodge that. And I'm a big fan, but I don't sit around copying Jonny Greenwood's guitar licks all day."

"I won't deny that hearing bad stuff can kinda be frustrating sometimes," he continues. "So can lugging your amp up some stairs in Peoria when you're hung over from the last show and you know you're about to play for like one person. But then you get an e-mail saying, 'Your record is the soundtrack of my life right now,' or we play a packed show and everyone goes nuts, and that's what keeps you going. When you're onstage playing, it's better than any drug. There's nothing comparable. And we all want to be doing that for a living -- I, for one, don't wanna spend the rest of my life driving cabs."

Letting go of the greetership thing, no matter how successful evening may get, is a different matter entirely.

They like the night life, baby: Things are looking up for evening.
