Played one of our usual bars on friday and the crowd was very Meh. Below average for what we usually see there. Now the crowd that was there when we started (9pm) stayed the whole night but we didn't see the usual influx of people that we usually do between 10:30pm and 11pm that fills up the place and keeps everything going until the end of the night.
Checked with another band that was playing across town on Friday and they had about 25-30 people the whole night in a place where they usually pull 100+ people.
Went out last night to see a band in town and the place where they were playing which usually has a decent built in crowd had maybe 20 people there. Including the 4 I brought with me.
Guess no one went ANYWHERE this weekend.
We did an awesome private gig last weekend but 2 weeks ago we saw the same thing at one of our regular bars.Some of our crowd showed and stayed but not too many other people coming out.
We got 2 full weekends coming up the next 2 weeks... I hope it gets better. Our crowds have been up and down since the new year and the bar owners haven't said anything yet so i am figuring it is slow across the board.
