Birch plans his effort to reconnect to his father through his concert.
The previous chapter, Shut Up and Dance With Me; this chapter; and the next Dipper and Birch chapters are not in chronological order. Dipper does not heave his date with Emily in the middle to fly down to Dallas. Whether the date happens before or after the concert is immaterial. Just suffice it to say they are not concurrent.
Also, this is the third time I have recorded this song. This time incorporated into the story. I still consider it a tribute song to my father, Fred Henry Smith Jr., who passed away a little more than 3 years ago. His passing made much of the illustrations since then possible. It also solved all my debt problems and my worries about retirement. I'm not independently wealthy, but I am not hurting. Thank you, Dad. I love you, and I always will.
