The audience sang along, occasionally to the shared mike.
Tonight gonna be a good good night.
Even Top of the World which was a relic from the 70’s.
A night at Acoustic, Saigon.
A night to release the stress.
A night to see Rock rules in a whole new generation.
The warm-up band was from Australia. “Don’t cry, don’t cry”…
Last but not least was the House band, mainstay.
I will always love you….
We had joy, we had fun last night.
Wholesome and healthy. My young sidekick did not even touch a beer.
He ordered milk.
Young people are health-conscious, environmentally aware (can you put out the cigarette?).
So we together decompressed, sang along, shouted along. Soared throat.
That’s what it’s all about.
Live a little.
Then come back to work harder.
To get more stress and strain.
I am ready.
One more time.
One more song.
One more day in Saigon.
Full of stress, but then, if you know where to look, full of strength.
Strength in unexpected places, in a corner there at the end of the alley.
