As a favor to an in-law, myself and the guitarist in my band agreed to do an accoustic perfomance at
his art gallery last night. He has a large room next to a lot of other galleries. Evidently, the first Friday of each month in Denver it's a huge deal and all the art shops in this area are setup as a huge Open House.
Anyway, we arrive to find a full blown rock band setup outside the studio area. Turns out, we share the same wall (they where set up outside). The studio was not air conditioned, so we had to have the window's open as well.
Not only where we accoustic - we didn't even bring mic's and an amp. Now - on top of all this, the band was a bit slow in their delivery. They would play a song, wait 2-5 mins, then play another song. Guests where asking to here us so we'd wait for "holes" of silence to get a song in. Assuredly, they would start in again before we had finished one song.
There's got to be other bad gigs - I wanna here em so I don't feel so bad! -)
