Incubus @ The MACC

I was actually just in for the Audio Push and Snake Pull on the 21st, cause I had to move the day of show. I gotta say one thing – Thanks for the free show guys! From my new house (which is 4 miles away) I could hear the concert clear as a bell!!!

Kick back in my backyard, beer in hand, and enjoy a concert without having to strike afterward – cool!

Just got done striking this one. She’s kinda taking it in a different direction now – so it’s interesting to watch it happen…

Erick was there and played a few in the second half – always good to have him around…

Giordano Jazz Dance @ The MACC

We did the pre-hang on the 12th, and the set-show-strike on the 13th. I ran the rail for this one. This show was actually pretty good – I didn’t have any expectation and was surprised (love it when that happens). The talent was all pretty cool too – that’s always a bonus when you’re on the rail and have to deal with people getting in the way all the time (they stayed clear without being asked)…

Seagate @ Kea Lani

I ran graphics and Video for this one from the 10th to 11th. I’ll get a picture of this rig we set up for this show and put it up here – it was totally made out of truss, was lit perfectly, and totally looked cool…

I’m learning that The Bailey’s (Heather and Gary) are really good set designers…
