the sound guy where we played last night was a total dick. Yeah, we use three DI's. I've debated buying them myself, because every once in a while we run into some tool running sound who doesn't even know what one is. Anyways, we asked for them, to which he replied (quite bitterly) "Have any MORE Surprises?" Um, is that really a surprise for you? And this is the first opportunity I've had to talk to you, so when would have been a better time to avoid this element of "surprise?" It's not like we're about to start. Hell, we're an hour from the first band starting. Um, well... you're a dick, but that's probably not a surprise to you.
Between that and orders to "move, get out of my way, etc." I hope he got shafted at the end of the night.
We're not twats. We don't roam aimlessly around stage. We aim to be set up in 5 minutes, and be off the stage in five minutes. It's not my fault your stage sucks, and that for some reason you prefer to work in the dark. He tells me he only has two DI's... then magically, I notice 5 on the stage. I tell him, he doesn't care. He says it's fine. None of them get plugged in, until we bother him some more. Turns out only 2 of the DI's worked. Fortunately our set got cut short, so we scrapped a song that needed the other DI. We've taken to using in-ear monitors as well... since stage sound almost always blows. I wasn't about to ask him to run a monitor mix on stage for that.
Though, we played Circus last Wednesday, and had ZERO problems with any of these things. How many DI's? Sure, no problem. Sure, I'll send you the monitor mix through your in-ears.
The show where the sound guy was a dick... we brought practically everyone. I hope he got screwed. The Circus? Left happy, and he earned every penny.
