Re: Talk about whatever, version 1.0.
It was aight. The radio interview was short. Our drummer did most of the talking. He's had the most experience in bands, so I guess that makes sense.
We played a show at a downtown cafe at noon, which was for the radio broadcast. It went pretty well, and I remembered the dude who played after us from a show that I played nine years and two bands ago. We played quietly and our ordinarily hard-hitting drummer had to restrain himself and play with brushes. I thought it sounded good, though I haven't heard what it sounded like over the air.
The evening show kind of sucked. The venue didn't have its own PA, so we ended up using mostly our own PA stuff plus the other band's mixer. There was tons of mic feedback, which meant that our singer couldn't move and we couldn't set up background vocal mics.
Also, the other band ended up screwing us. They were headlining, and our deal was to split our take 50/50. Due to the difficulties with the shitty equipment situation, we ended up going on late and they used that as leverage to give us 30/70 instead. Never mind that we brought in a hell of a lot more people than they did and we let them use a bunch of our stuff. So fuck them in their stupid ugly faces.
Also, I got stuck working the door after our set, which severely curtailed my ability to attempt to be attractive to women.
Other than that, we played well and did our best with a crummy setup.Some photos.
The first one looks like an advertisement for coffee.
She reminds me of this.
