A local venue placed a craigslist ad looking for an entry to mid level "live audio tech". Despite me JUST starting my first job in three years since I finished school six months ago, I still applied. Three nights per week are the only days they have live music. This month, there are six shows out of fourteen possible dates.
I know the pay is gonna be bollocks compared to what this brand new job is and I'm going to work hard, but I'm not daunted. I don't need a ton of income, plus it would be nice to have an in at this venue. My band would like to play here at some point. .png" alt=":smileywink:" title="Smiley Wink" />
And of course the knowledge. Wow, could I ever use some knowledge. Mark at Audiopile knows people local to me and has given them my name, but they haven't needed someone with my *ahem* level of skill as of yet.
I'll need to weigh everything out obviously. My acoustic duo is also starting to do more gigs, so I need to make time for that. but if the sound gig has solidly planned dates, then I can work around that as needed.
Crossing my fingers for at least a call back. I was kind of funny in the email, too:
This is my dream job! And part-time is fine with me.
I'm in a band (I'm sure everyone says that), but really I am. We don't play out very often by choice, so most of my weekends are free.
I have a strong ear for balance between instruments and am always striving for that in my own group.
The over-under cable wrap is the ONLY way to coil cables, isn't it?
