I lived through this: My life in a Hole cover band

This past weekend my Hole cover band, Jennifer's Body, played the Denver County Fair. Until this show, we weren't an actual band at all -- we formed earlier this year for a two-song set to honor the opening of Hole drummer Patty Schemel's documentary, Hit So Hard, and had never planned on being anything more than that. But Fair entertainment director Andrew Novick got wind of the performance and asked us to play again, and since there is never any reason to say no to Andrew (who has been the positive-minded purveyor of fun stuff in Denver for more than twenty years), we said sure, why the hell not?
