So I get a call (from drummer friend) to sub for a band for a gig tonight. At the end of rehearsal, BL asks if anyone has longer XLR's! Um what? Then guitarist asks if I or the drummer (also subbing) have a mixer (to facilitate all the channels needed). Ummm......say what? Side Bar: I and the drummer actually do own quite a bit of PA gear between us but we didn't tell them that! So now I'm wondering what exactly are they going to use for this gig. SMDH. Oh, and their use of heavy reverb on the vocals is laughable. I'm just gonna collect my money and high tail it outta there. They want me to be the regular bassist. No way in hell! I should kick my drummer friend's @$$ for getting me involved in this rag tag operation! Man, I just can't win! What do I have to do to find a good band and steady gig? Oh I know......move from this gawd awful area and music scene! Now I'm starting to realize why the 'old timers' won't come out to play anymore!
