Tonite me and my band were supposed to practice like we do every week at a studio. there are usually 2 or 3 bands practicing at once in different rooms. Tonite we weren't permitted to play cos a famous NZ band called Pacifier (formerly known as Shihad to all New Zealanders and Australians) were practicing for an upcoming festival and "didn't want anyone to hear them practicing". I thought this was rather unfair. We pay good money to practice there every monday nite, and are supposed to expect to drop everything for some band at the drop of a hat? I think that is wrong. They dont even pay for their time there. Its likw cos they are well known over here that everyone bows down to them and worships the ground they walk on! I dont know why they dont want anyone to hear them practicing anyway. Everyone in New Zealand knows all their songs anyway! Any thoughts? EDIT: sorry wrong forum! feel free to move it anytime.
