It's So Hard to Say Goodbye

Posted By on Fri, Apr 17, 2009 at 5:03 PM

So, yeah . . . no more Tick Tick shows. Ain't that a kick in the head?

In a remarkably short period of time, Tick Tick established themselves as a vital and seemingly indispensable piece of Burlington's music scene. You know you've arrived in the Queen City when people just sort of take you for granted, assuming you'll always be there. And that's the level of admiration — and familiarity — Tick Tick achieved in its all-too-brief two and-a-half year run booking shows around our fair state. I, for one, am really gonna miss them.

In my perch as 7D music dude, I deal with artists, promoters, club owners, fans, non-fans and an otherwise comprehensive assortment of music-related folks from all levels of the PR spectrum on a daily basis. And in my almost two years in this chair, I have never had more pleasurable professional interactions than I had with Tick Tick. Amid the typical din of over-hyped, hyperbolic PR nonsense that floods my inbox every day, their genuine affection for the shows they put together was simply refreshing. They had no ulterior motives beyond sharing great music. And their enthusiasm was nothing short of infectious, which is a big reason I wrote about them as often as I did. Well, that, and the music was almost always top notch.

I'm sensing this is quickly turning into a eulogy, which wasn't my intent — what can I say? I'm bummed. Rather, I'd just like to take a moment to sincerely thank Tick Tick for everything they've done for Burlington music. It's been fun, guys. Thank you.
