Ok .. so... Last Saturday was pretty interesting. First, I arrive at my drummers place to help pack up the drums and P.A. and as soon as we start gathering chords his phone rings. Our singer is at the venue and informs us that the owner canceled us and let one of his friends cover bands play instead. We had the show booked a month and a half ago and had a show contract signed and noterized. He said it was a mistake.. he'll make it up to us, blah blah bulls***. He said he had them booked first and didn't realize it when he booked us that same night. Wich is a lie, we saw his calander that he writes down bands and nights on.. they were nowhere on the thing, but our name was sure up there still. What happened was he had a lot of people (this is coming from the bartender who is a good friend of ours) come in over that past week saying how much they were looking forward to the show Saturday. He took advantage of the fact that he knew there was going to be a lot of people showing up and had his buddies band come in to play and purposely waited until we showed up to tell us. That way it was too late to let people planning on coming that there was no show. He ****ed us to steal our crowd. Now... We spent the next two hours on the phone with every bar/club/lounge in the city... And???? we got another venue booked for that night!!!! So we finish (realy quickly) packing everything and haul @$$. On the way we got on the phone with the other bands that were playing to let them know of the venue switch, then I begged my way on-air on the most popular rock station in Central FL and the DJ allowed us to explain, On-Air!!, what was going down and we needed an even larger crowd to show up just to rub it in his face. We stopped off at Kinko's along the way and made up HUGE signs that we put all up and down the road to the other venue telling the new venue and not to go the the other place. It worked.. we managed to pull it off and wound up getting over 500 people out. Now we're taking the other owner to small claims court for the $3000 we Could have made had he honored the contract. So we're really actually kinda thankful for the guy being an ass. Now we're getting payed TWICE for Saturday!!!! HAHAHAAAAAAA moron. And we turned him in for underage drinking. His son and his friends (all in high school) are in there constantly, almost every night, drinking. It may be a bit harsh, but we really want to drive the point home that we can screw him WAY more than he did us that night.
