This club is huge. Gigantic. Wow. It’s also very hot and humid, and it’s pouring rain outside. We’ve got loadin done, and now we’re waiting for soundcheck. This could take some time. 2 bands soundcheck before we do. We need to eat. Dan loks tired, Chuck looks lost, and I’m trying to figure out where we’re all supposed to be. I guess because we have to do the band changeover, we’re going to be missing the fireworks, which is a shame.
I should be used to seeing clubs before they get their “game faces” on by now, but it’s still always a bit arresting to be schlepping around a semi-grimy club that you know will look shiny and moderne when the lights go down and the sound goes up.
