So we have a festival gig coming up in a few weeks. All our shows have been bars/ private parties so this is a first for us. It's at Hart Plaza downtown Detroit right on the river so it's a little bigger deal and I'm pretty excited about it. It is supposed to be backlined so the only things we need to bring are our instruments and minimal drum parts. No amps, pa, big drum shells. We have not yet gotten the contract yet so it's not certain but that's what we were told. Got a group text from our singer saying that we should probably rent a uhaul and plan to meet at his house and go down there together. I live about ten minutes from Hart Plaza on edge of Detroit and he lives in the suburbs about half an hour away from me and also about half an hour from the event. My initial reply was "a uhaul? what?" I then stated that I have no desire to sit in a car for an extra two hours for twenty minutes of travel. All I'm bringing is one gig bag with my bass, cables, DI and other essentials and was just planning on taking a Lyft, which would cost me as much as parking if I couldn't find a space on the street. Three of the other four guys seemed pretty offended by my position so I suggested we meet at my house and then go to the gig, but that was seen as unreasonable. Is there something I'm missing here?
