Sound Check

The view from my seat.

We sound checked at the Warnors Theater last night. This is one of the crappiest parts about being a musician; The waiting. Any show of large size goes like this; You show up when they tell you to show up, and then you wait for hours and hours and hours and hours, and then they either run out of time and you don’t get a sound check, or you get a two minute one. It’s just the way it goes. The logistics of putting on a large show are incredibly complex. So that’s exactly what happened last night. 5 1/2 hours of waiting and a two minute sound check. I love being a musician.

The sad part is, I really do love being a musician. So much so that I’m going to do it again today. We’re set to arrive at the Warnors at 1:30 and we probably won’t actually go on stage until 8 or 9, and then only for 3 minutes 50 seconds. Is it worth it you ask? Damn straight it is.

But I noticed something interesting. When you’re a crappy garage band you’ll go to bars and play for 4 hours straight for drunks who could care less about your music. But now we play for people who really want to hear us, and we play for 15 minutes at a time, tops. Odd.

Anyway, I’m stoked about tonight. If you haven’t noticed, they moved the show from the Save Mart center to the Warnors Theater. Yeah, it’s a little step down, but the good thing is that the Warnors will be PACKED. And it’s always better to play to a smaller, packed house, than a large, half empty room. And with the energy of this crowd, we might just blow the roof off this place. This is going to be fun! See you there!
