Sunday – A day of Jams
March 1, 2011 7 Comments
Another half-day Sunday, another gig at one of the pubs on site. We rolled in around four in the afternoon, right when the bar decided to open, and started throwing around our gear like we were annoyed with it. Instruments were rigged up, the PA speakers were put in their optimal places, and cables snaked all over the place, reminiscent of the Well of Souls from Raiders of the Lost Ark. The new singer, Mr. Ian, took one look at the madness that we were throwing together and asked a pretty riveting question about the whole thing:
“How in the hell do you guys know where all of that crap has to go, and what cable goes where?”
-I guess after doing this for some time you just know.
And Rod, looking as stoic as usual:
-And smile like a fool, dammit!
It was hot as hell and we were in the Niger Delta, a place where no HUMAN should have to be… but we had a great time. I hope the next time any of you are stuck in a situation that just generally sucks the tail pipe of filth and horror that you are able to make the most of it… like we have.
Cheers to all of you out there.
