Had some fun on my days away, of course now I’m behind on a bunch of things. The best part was seeing a guy changing a tire on the side of the highway while his wife/girlfriend sat in her underwear in a folding chair watching. I made money on the string of shows if I just pay for gas instead of wear on the car ($0.50 a mile). It’s hard for experimental bands to make the money to pay on the mileage plan. I’d basically need $100 a day at that point & meanwhile I’m pretty happy with $50 lately.
Does anybody know what you’re supposed to do for weird sounds coming out of an effects rig at random venues? I already use a power conditioner & a ground lift. I can’t test it at home because there’s no problem in the house. It’s really irritating the 10% of the time I run into it.
The Lost Kisses DVDs came in. The amount of work it will be is a little overwhelming to say the least. I need to research where to send promos & try to figure out about distribution of a DVD. Yeah, those are things I should have done before I even started looking into manufacturing DVD, but I had the initial plan to sell them at some mini-comic conventions, but the timing is flawed. I guess part of it too is that I got a grant towards them & that makes me take them a little less seriously, which is totally bogus. I guess it’s the same reason bands seem to be willing to push a self-released album harder than one a label helps them with.
Playing the Pinhook on Wednesday in Durham, NC. Why not come out?
