So, my Improv Rock band was booked to play with a couple of DJs at a venue in the Valley. We show up and find the place is quite small, hardly any room for us, but we make due. We get set up and are having a few beers in the parking lot. The person who booked us comes up to us just as we were about to go onstage and tells us we can wait another 20 minutes or so if we'd like, to allow more people to show up. So we said alright and have another beer. A few minutes go by and the soundguy, who's equipment was not set up when we got there nor by the time we were done setting up (we had brought our own PA anyways) , comes outside and tells us we have to go on now, as we're running behind. Ok... So we go inside and begin our set. After the first song we're asked to turn our volume down. We werent all that loud, but we obliged. After our second song, we're asked to turn down again. Well, we're already lower than usual, but ok, we turn down again. After we begin our third song the guy who booked us comes up to the stage, yes to tell us to turn down again, and thats when things got weird. Our drummer, who was set up in front of me, gets up off his kit and puts his arms up in the air like he's ready to fight. My first thought is W-T-F? They exchange some not so friendly words. Meanwhile Im just telling my band 'guys, just turn down some more' when our guitarist gets mad and slams his guitar on top of his amp. Ok, now Im really all W-T-F?! So the promoter is pissed, my drummer and guitarist are pissed, and now our synth player is getting pissed. This is weird... the promoter tells us 'one more' after we've only played 2 songs, and thats when we all just said 'eff this, lets break down'. Apparently the bartender was complaining to the promoter that she couldnt hear people ordering drinks. Our synth player tells the bartender that she's too old, and that struck a nerve with her. So as we're breaking down these 2 girls at the bar are telling us to keep playing. All I said to them was 'sorry, but I guess we're too loud for this place'. So we breaking down and having words with the promoter at the same time. We finish and we're outside, the next act sets up and begins. I go inside to order a drink, the bartender couldnt hear me. We left and had a few beers at our drummers house. All in all it was a fun, yet interesting, night.
