Not done this in a while but just done a 5 day stint as main support.
Wednesday we played the Dome in Cardiff.
The headliners used their own desk and engineer as they all use in ears and no backline. The in house engineer was totally on point and with 45 mins before doors had us all rigged back up and our "normal" set up of back line and monitors all ready to roll, great gig and cool venue.
Thursday the Garage in Glasgow.
Monster 7 hour drive in storm Debra or whatever. Got there with time and loaded in, engineer this time had nothing ready and really are into our soundcheck just before doors, sound was off on stage and he ended up blowing the house subs somehow, which meant the headliners had to piece something together to crack on, overall a bit tinny but they managed it. Cool venue, had beers across the road after and headed back to the hotel.
Friday Leeds brudenell club.
Another monster drive aqua plaining sideways down the m73 but all good.
Love a venue with a dedicated car park and good beer. The room was awesome, engineer was great and sound was killer.
Saturday - standalone gig for us in Colchester - Soundhouse at the Bull.
Pretty much a shed outside from the main pub, cool metal place not as cool as being treated to the previous nights stages. No monitors but a small room so we made do, big sound in there and went down well for us headlining and all bands from outta town.
Sunday back to being tour support.
Crap drive through the big smoke to the Dome Tuffnel park. One of the coolest venues yet, nice square room, big donkey stage and good beer. Engineers this time we're militant and awesome, separate main engineer and monitor engineer, made all the difference.
All killer shows, I'm knackered now though.
All week I used my bf 410 and alternated between an Ashdown Hod and an ABM 600.
