Bar Fly & Hooligan's

Great crowds both nights--word is getting around about the "new" Bliss (meaning me on sound) and we've noticed improved audience response and size almost every week.
Thanks, everyone!

Bar Fly was great, but Hooligan's was insane!

Video From Hooligan's

I don't personally know who shot this from the upper level at Hooligan's, but they did a decent job.
Usually video has crappier sound than this, especially when our speakers are shooting way under the microphone(s).

You should have seen and heard tonight's version at the same club--the audience sang much of it at a volume that astonished me, and I thought I had already seen it all.

The Sea Monkeys At Charlie Brown's

The "New" Sea Monkeys did their third show tonight and Charlie Brown's definitely saw and heard something special.

Personally, it was nice to end a four night series of shows (with three different bands) by getting to mix a singularly sublime series of sets.
A few clubs are still designed in favor of correct speaker placement, although I'm sure this is accidental.
The bonus tonight was dry acoustics and only a single example of malfunctioning gear.

Hotter Than Hell Tin Roof

It was the usual over-the-top show.
Great crowd.

But I sure would like the luxury of being able to wait a day after fixing something before the next piece of gear decides to break, instead of five minutes.
My band equipment faith-healing power needs time to recharge.

****The Sea Monkeys At Charlie Brown's Tonight****

And to the "lady" who turned around and screamed at me 20 seconds into the first song: Brush your teeth.
If you have something to say to me, lift your lazy ass off that chair and we'll talk beast to man.
I'm not your slave, and you know jack-shit about the music business.
How many times has your mouth earned you a black eye?
I bet it's more than four.
