I know we've talked about this here before, but I was curious how many of you guys bring your own security with you? We bring a gang of freaks with us everywhere we go. I went up tonight and checked out this bar we're playing at next Saturday. It's tiny and at 11 on a Saturday night apparently it is inhabited by about 10 drunk guys and 20 or so bikers, mostly listening to country and southern rock. We play RATM and **** like that. I think their regulars aren't going to dig us too much. The owner apparently wants to bring people into her bar and none of the bars in this little town ever have bands that play anything but redneck **** and none of them do great business. So she figures younger people might come if there is, um, more modern music. I'm not worried about people turning up because we have lots of people, but I am slightly concerned about problems with the drunk bikers that normally hang out there. Not only do I not want my gear molested, but I want to avoid going to jail, if at all possible. I'm not really posing any questions regarding this gig, but I was curious if any of you guys brought your own goons with you, especially when you play strange places.
