New Jersey, awesome. Raining, more awesome. Having a shitty venue where we not only have to share floors pace with the bands, but can’t load out until after the entire show is done, ho OH, so awesome. Having to make an 8 hour drive tonight and still make it to Pittsburg for a 9AM load in… awes..fuck it.
This tour hits NYC on Sunday and I think I may just drop off it. It’s not worth it anymore. The routing fucking blows. Our tour manager is lost half the time with no idea what he’s doing. My job gets more and more difficult every day because of the shitacular job the production companies did on our road-cases and fixtures… the list just goes on and on.
I’ve never walked off a tour before and I’ve been on some real crap productions, but this, this is just a nightmare. We had 1 day off in 4 weeks and they decided to fill it and make us work on it. It’s all bullshit.
Might be time to find a new line of work.
