Last night I went with my g/f to see some bands. For the most of it, all the bands were really good. What was annoying was how long one of the bands, especially the bass player, took to set up. And they weren't the headliners. I've seen the bass player before in another band, and my reaction was "oh...here we go again with this person". I swear the bass player took 35 minutes setting up. 35 minutes to plug in the amp to the cab, and the bass into the amp, then tune... Then came the sound check... Apparently, they had gone from the effects loop or something to the cab, and no sound was coming out. I, and others, were getting frustrated. The bassist was standing on stage looking like a sad kid that dropped their ice cream. So i ended up going on stage and helping out. The amp was connected wrong up to the cab. After fixing the solution, i got an applause from the audience. Guess some people don't know their gear.
