OK, we are in OK. Round two as the first attempt was temporally delayed due to overwhelming coldness and airy ice.At least we knew the ropes of the load-in though when I say we, I must give credit to the "we's" other than me as they are the heroes of the techno build and I am more of an observer and documentationer at this point in my career as a roadie.
Hey look, it's our riggers Gabe, Fletch and Chuck! Try and get your head around this perspective
Mickey Avalon opened and perhaps impatience or perhaps it was too raunchy for a pile of the locals but stepping back with a smile was easily amplified if you let yourself listen and watch though. Mickey playing the show was a direct request from our Peppers so it was interesting to see people boo an artist that is embraced by the artists that they came to see. Oh well, in any case I mixed Mickey's sound, as I rarely do for support acts, but the exception was created when requested to do so by my Peppery band friends. Scott did lights and we had a blast! All good. Not only was the music enjoyable but for some strange reason I found it difficult to avert my eyes from the performance, perhaps it was his shirt
As far as the Peppers show, well we got some some more Josh when he played on Wet Sand
We got some Flea trumpet which I always enjoy
And though I did not get pics of all the goodbye's, I will end today with saying bye bye to Chris, our awesome merch roadie
7 AM lobby call tomorrow, time for bed, night night!
