No one said it was "so bad." I very specifically stated that it's not a terribly concerning issue, and that problems like this are rare. I think I actually said something like 10%... which may seem like a lot, but it's only 2 for every 20 shows, and hardly an exaggeration. The question was just what to do when those things happen, and they happen everywhere, not just here. "If you don't like something, then move," makes it sound as if shitty soundguys are ALL Columbus has to offer. I might suggest reading before commenting. Thanks for your input though!
my bad, my earlier comment was in no way directed at your rant. i should have used the quote function, but i didn't realize someone had posted right before me, so i didn't think i was needed.
it should have looked more like this:
Welcome to The Frinship Farm, Lackluster. If you thought Craigslist was full of assholes, you're gonna love it here.
if it's so bad here for you, you're MORE than welcome to leave whenEVER you want . . .
again, sorry 'bout the confusion.but to be quite honest, i've worked in enough bars and played in enough bands that i can honestly say without a doubt there's no more tired-crutch out there than blame-the-soundguy. if you didn't get what you wanted, you didn't fight strongly enough for it. YOU pay HIM, get what you want or get over it. yeah, there's a million soundguys out there who are total shit. and guess what? there's a million bands that are too. and all of those bands are made up of 4 guys who have just as good a chance at being shit as well. so you're only dealing with one asshole a night, he's usually dealing with at least 12.and the soundguy rarely has primadonna issues.
