Here's a new one, something that got my hackles up...
A local show with a couple of solo acts from a headliner band, a couple of simple local acts coming through for a benefit show. I am providing audio in-house turnkey. Another local sound guy who sometimes works with one of the local duos advances this show WITH THE HEADLINER and then telling ME how it's going to go down with his duo act who has been asked to simplify due to issues the previous year.
Am I out of line thinking this guy has balls as big as an elephant coming in and stepping all over my toes? I have no idea what he told the headliner's guys about how the gig is set up, what he promised on my behalf, and how I am going to get control back without some ball busting of my own.
So, how pissed should I be?
