Putting emotional words to angry music is not addressing your mental health. You get an outlet, an artistic endeavor to put your feelings on a canvas. It is enough to keep you going, maybe even a way to take deep emotions & dump them so you don’t have to feel them, but it is not actually taking accountability or finding help.
I love the idea of creating a supportive community with like minded others. When you go to a Cigarette Pie event you’re coming out of it with new friends, networking with the other bands, artists, creators etc & just generally widening your place in the scene.
