Busy week around here. Counting down a very busy November of my daughter’s birth, lots of events, concerts and holidays ahead!
I’m thankful for friends. Friday night the guys from the Underground Cafe ran production for one of our favorite returning bands, Haste the Day. Always a blast to have them in town! Some of the best crew to hang out and work with too.
Everyone’s nostalgic these days as we count down the final week until the Underground’s LAST SHOW – Rockfest 6. While setting up the show we played songs by some of our favorite bands that graced our basement, auditorium and area gyms rocking our speakers. Our resident audio tech Mark (front right in the above photo) has been working shows with me since… 2002-2003? It’s been ages, pretty much since the cafe started having live music.
Turns out he’s mixed a ton of signed, touring, national bands… before turning 21 last summer. He named off a bunch of bands he ran audio for and his ages ending in “teen” – pretty crazy we had teenagers running concert audio and lighting for all these years. Good help is hard to find, that’s for certain, and the Underground Cafe has had a wonderful 8 year streak of finding AWESOME help.
Thanks Mark, Judah, Devin and the folks that showed up to make the show a great night!
