404 – Rubbish gig alert
So, I did a gig, with someone I don’t know. To be honest, that in itself is something of a miracle these days, but it was a gig, so I said yes, because that’s what we do. The above picture is of where we set up. Actually, it doesn’t look that bad but it’s pretty cold and it’s about to rain. Not much, but enough to not want an electric piano and a PA to get wet. Well, also it became clear that absolutely nobody was going to listen to us because it was too cold and too rainy. A little bit like this, which was the view from the piano after our first number.
It became clear that there wasn’t really anywhere good inside to set up but we did so anyway, squeezed into a corner, a bit too near the bar and without much room to move. So little room, in fact, that I had to sit under a bit plant. Well, strictly speaking, I was inside a big plant. It was a little bit rubbish to be honest. I won’t labour the point, I think the picture says enough…
So, it was a rubbish gig, nobody listened, the set times were all stupid, the food wasn’t very nice, but at least we were dry, we got fed and we got paid. All is well.
