did not have her amp on
I checked everybodys amps after the power came back on. Not true.
perhaps she wasn't plugged into it. i was listening in th headphones and there was zip, just ambient sound from drums and such. even checked to make sure th mic was in front of th speaker still. even if th speaker that th mic was on wasn't functional i would've expected to hear some of th other speaker, and when chris put his guitar down it was just you, adam.
When we are playing somewhere and a sound guy is getting paid to run sound for our band, I like to think that they are being paid to be an advocate for our band. Since you are getting paid to get the sound of our band across to the audience you are, in a lot of ways, taking professional responsibility for the sound of our band. Doesn't matter how bad we are or how much shit we talk, you are a professional technician, and for that half an hour a paid advocate of the Unholy 2. I'm up there assuming you are gonna act accordingly.
That means I expect that if something is clearly going wrong onstage and you notice it, and we clearly don't, you would let us know. I'm not saying you need to fix anything, I'm just saying a heads up would be in order. What I don't expect is that the technician that is getting paid money to get our sound from the stage to the audience while we play will readily hop on a public forum and crack on our band. Especially over an issue that half falls into the realm of what I see as his responsibility. It reflects badly on us and it reflects badly on you because it's a crazy unprofessional thing to do.
If I go to the doctor with rectal prolapse and pay the man to fix me up, I'm gonna go ahead and assume he's gonna do everything in his power to fix me up and not hop on the internet and be all like "nice rectal prolapse". I'm assuming that because A. there are laws in place, which doesn't really apply here, and B. that would be wildly inappropriate behavior from a professional.
OK, I've said my piece and I'll leave it at that. The sound at Ace of Cups is always really good btw.
