Got home from Phoenix, got the car washed, went home, read my e-mail, and passed out until around 11:00pm. Got up Checked e-mail, started coughing a little, so took some Nyquill and passed back out until this morning.
Was a great weekend, it started on Thursday when I picked Ben (far_and_distant)up at the airport and got him to his hotel. We got food at Gordon Biersch talked music and music production and then ended up at the double down for a while. Then it was off to Divebar, where we were assualted by absolutely mediocre band playing bad covers. Eventually, agentubel, Michael and Karyn (Cherry Cheesecake) Suffered through more band from hell, and then decided to go to the beauty bar. . . which ended up being closed. . . we screwed around waiting for Michelle to return, Hillarity and oddness in equal amounts occured and when michelle finally arrived, the only thing she would say on the topic was. "I hate femminists", even more amusing because she had been riding with a guy.
Got Ben back to his hotel, went home crashed out, got up completed my errands, went to the gym, and then went and rescued ben from the boredome of his hotel, and brought him back to my house, so that he could at least have teh intarweb while I made Demo Discs to give out at club.
Got to club and got set up, had fun Djing, saw my friends from Swingshift Sideshow do things, that if the regulatory committee in vegas found out, whould close the club. Ended up at Breakfast with Ben and enjoying $4.95 10oz steaks. . . dropped ben off and wsent home to crash out, returned 6 hours later to pick up him and head for Phoenix.
4 - 24oz can's of energy drink, 1 lb of Beef Jerky. lots of good conversation, and a horde of strange text messages later, and only a slight detour we arrived 1 minute after 6:00pm at Juggheads in Scottsdale. Got to meet squidb0i and not_eurotic in person, and got set up for sound check, and recording the djing and show out of the sound board and into my laptop, and then headed out to the hotel to get checked in and ready for the show.
Came back, drank more energy drinks, said hello to 5arah and listened to the Dj's and bullshitted with plastic_glitter and the guys from Alter Der Ruine (Congrats on getting signed), who told me that Franck at Bunker had been telling them about the PA track for the DB 54 comp. Was talking with Jason and Matt at the merch table when I stopped mid sentance. . . wait a minute. . . that's Polluted Axis on the P.A. who's playing my band. . . (Thanks 5arah) waited for the other people I came to see to show up. cphae eventually wandered in, got a good hug and declinded nibbling on her hip bone (I soo should have) but was bearing the bad news that thermopylae had decided she didn't want to leave Tucson that night. :( <- sad face.
Overall, I really Enjoyed the show, watching people beat the crap out of eachother, and ended up dancing my ass off, and even though the technical difficulties, that plagued the night, were not limited only to the caustic PA. . . I did get some good sections of the show recorded. From now on, I'm bringing the Zen V to all the shows and doing the recording with that. . .
Ended up at Denny's for breakfast with Ben and Matt and then got them over to their Hotel, and me back to mine. Assed out, and woke up at 10:30am got prepped and left Phoenix at about 11:00am. . . got back to Las Vegas at 4:00pm.
