Calamity Jane Season 4. Episode 2: #vanlife Featuring Don’t Be The Hero by Calamity Jane on Mixcloud

Hey everyone! My name is Luke Sovinsky and I will be writing here on calamityjaneradio.com. I am very excited to share my experiences and opinions on the music scene! That being said let me take a moment and share a little bit about myself. I am 19 years old, born and raised in beautiful San Diego, CA. I play Guitar in a Pop punk/hardcore band called “Cut Your Losses“. I attend Mira Mar Community College and am taking criminal justice and musical engineering.

I love all genres of music: Pop punk, hardcore, classic rock, metal, country, SOME rap, and pop. My favorite band of all time goes to Green Day, I have loved them ever since I started listening to rock music. My goals in life are of course for my band to be successful, but one of my dreams since I was a little kid is to be a police officer and eventually a US Marshall. But for this blog I will be focusing on bringing attention to great music that needs to be heard, wether it be big bands or local bands. I will be doing album and EP reviews along with show reviews. Well that’s me! I will be posting my first blog soon enough! Thanks for reading people!

Being an Introvert on Tour

I am an introvert (introversion is generally shown by reserved and solitary behavior). I’m socially capable, and I LOVE talking to people. But being around people generally burns me out pretty quickly, and I need time to myself to recharge, especially with my minor anxiety issues. So being on tour with five other people in a van or whatever vehicle for weeks at a time takes its toll on me, especially because my bandmates are extroverts (being alone/not being social burns them out the way being around people burns me out).

A lot of my time on tour is spent “alone”, cooped up in a corner. I generally don’t ride shotgun (co-piloting, as we call it) because I’m asleep half the time, and it makes the driver sleepy. I’m almost always cooped up in the back under some blankets cuddled up to a pillow. I have my headphones in constantly. I read. I play games on my phone. I text my friends, when I have reception (I like being alone but I hate feeling lonely). I write songs in my 100 page composition book I bought in Washington in a Wal-Mart at midnight when the other guys were getting snacks. It’s hard, but it’s absolutely worth it. I love my bandmates. I love touring. I love playing music. It’s all I want to do with my life. So I’ll fight for it, every second of the way.

Unknown Band Of The Day: Short Stories from San Diego, CA (pop punk/emo). These guys are very good friends of mine, and put out my favorite EP of 2013. You can find their music at (shortstoriesSD.bandcamp.com).

I’ve been listening to: Self Titled by Heart to Heart, The Weight That You Buried by Knuckle Puck, and Guero by Beck. All fantastic releases.
