Thanks: I need to first say thank you to all the agents, bands, friends and citizens who made yesterday happen; and the turnout was fantastic for a first attempt. I like to give very special thanks to M for working the door at the very last minute. You really kept things flowing better than anyone else yesterday.
Cancellations: Trash Talk cancelled that day due to Lee re-injuring his knee cap. Wavves cancelled because he didn’t want to make the drive/play. I assume both bands were beat down from the previous days activities in Austin. With the way bands tour these days, both will come back eventually.
Sound: I was extremely disappointed by the overall consistency of ‘good sound’ and ridiculous feedback ‘off and on’ the entire day. Also, I do not know why they weren’t prepared for change overs. The attitude displayed between the soundman and The Coathangers and Young Widows was completely unprofessional and should not ever happen in a venue. Granted it’s humorous when the drummer and soundman arguing and talk shit to each other during the set, but for him to mute all of Young Widows sound and walk-out was just plain shitty. I will have a different sound guy at my next shows at the Lounge. Sorry.
