    Just had a terrible gig. My band played in a bar in Boston. It was awful...Bad sound guy. Bad venue....bad bands...bad vibes...15 audience members. Feel bad for me...feel bad for yourselves...just feel bad.(actually, all in all it was a pretty good learning experience, so not all is lost).

    Had a bad gig like that in Chicago. Except I was 19, so I had to stay out of the bar until I was to play, then I had to leave, and I even got into a fender-bender on the way to the gig.

    They are called character building gigs.

    15 people and a sound guy? Sounds like a better gig than what I've been doing for the last 7 years. I think my bad gigs outnumber the good ones around 15 to 1, yet I continue to play....

    Aren't you around a ton of college kids in Dekalb? I would think it would be party time down there.

    is that super secret code for "i'm gonna wrap you in a wet blanket in the back of my van, beat you with a stick, and throw you in the river"?

    Can't really party to the music I play, and no one seems to care when I do end up playing. It's an indie/dance band market out here no place for post-math-rock or Doom.

    Skybar or All Asia?

    Sorry it sucked but regarding the 15 people, you're supposed to bring in fans, you know.
