We’re excited to announce we’ll be offering live music at The Grumpy Troll! Join us every Sunday as we feature local artists upstairs in The Pizzeria.
“I’ve been what they call a professional musician going on fifteen years now. Prior to that I’d been a secret musician most of my grown life, writing songs just to fend off the loneliness, trying to make sense of my nonsensical existence. I wrote slowly, carefully working my way across a good-sized minefield of worrisome psychological issues. The songwriting helped, like a form of therapy. I wrote hundreds of truly terrible songs in a long procession of dismal apartments and hotel rooms, scattered across the USA and over in Europe. Wretched song after wretched song I wrote. The few people who heard them ran from the room when I started playing, but I didn’t really care. It was therapy. I was trying to get better, doing what one friend called “the talking cure”.”
