Sound

The sound guy (or gal) is God. Sometimes Old Testament fire & brimstone, sometimes New Testament huggy and loving. During the sound check, if you're not on deck, put your instrument down and shut up. When it's your turn, follow instructions! This is the time for your questions, special requests, &c. The whole band has to be checked, or the sound guy may or may not choose to fix your levels on the fly during your 2 minute masterpieces, Sparky. So swallow your punk rock pride and bare your throat for a little while. Everyone will thank you. A happy sound guy is your friend, your audience's friend, and the door's friend. An unhappy sound guy fills your monitor with kick drum and heavy delay, leaving you to wonder "what the ever-lovin' fuck just happened?" -rg
