There are a lot of reasons I’m really thankful for my job. I get a regular paycheck that can buy important stuff like Legos and Jordans (and baby stuff too, I guess). Even better, our office has free animal crackers and monthly fajita buffets. Most importantly, once a year, rapping is part of my job description. Other than every day that I’m not at work, it’s my favorite day of the year.
Well, in 2013, it happened twice.
At the 2013 “Battle of the Law Firm Bands” event at the Black Cat in D.C., Sutherland Comfort brought down the house with an eclectic set of Alanis, Christina, Bruno Mars, Eminem, Gun ‘n Roses, and Maclemore songs. We also raised $40,000 for the D.C. homeless community. Even better, the entire event raised $250,000! Holler! Despite the excess amount of sweat I put off during our performance, someone from the D.C. Bar liked everyone else in the band so much that they asked us to perform at a fancy lawyer prom-esque event.
Like me at the aforementioned fajita buffet, we enthusiastically said “YES! YES! YES!” It was a little different from what we’re used to, namely, there were fewer drunk people, less insanity, and more tuxedos. However, we still gave it our best shot and the band crushed an eight-song set this past Saturday night. Here’s our lawyerly rendition of “Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys. Enjoy!
