Well, last night was a blast.

Recently, I've been hired on as a roadie for this Irish-Latin band. So I drove down to the place where they have their gig, which is this nice wine bar/restaurant, and got there before they did. (of course) First the guitarist came along, bringing his goddam gigantic speakers and their stands with him. I gotta tell ya, that's without a doubt the hardest part of the whole thing. Then along came the fiddler, but she was simple, just a mic and a jack to plug into her violin. Finally, the drummer showed up. Now, I know how most drum sets look, but his wasn't like that at all. It's this steel monstrosity that I have to assemble piece by piece out of bars and twists and it generally requires me to ask a lot what he wants it to look like for any particular gig. I swear, the damn thing's arcane. So I finally got that assembled and all the way up to the staging area, and then I got to do the easy part; plugging everything in. I did all that, then joined a friend of mine who'd driven down with me at a table while they played. They're a great band, and they were just having fun that whole time, as was everybody else there (it was outside, natch). So it went on for a few hours until it was time for breakdown, which I gladly did. I then went home and promptly fell asleep for about ten hours.
