Did I make the right choice to return live sound?! I have contemplated for a very long time. Did I still had the energy that it takes? Was I strong enough, mentally and physically? Could I deal with my insecurity? Would anybody give me a job? I knew this would turn my life upside down.

Last night we successfully completed our first weekend at Austin City Limits Festival. If it was a competition it would be safe to say we won or at least made into the post season. (review of show) It was a great show, the weather was not brutally hot or cold and it did not turn into a mud fest. Both the audience and band brought it. This show at this festival should be put in the memory books. Except we get to come back next weekend and do it all over again. Should be a piece of cake right?
Vivid Live is arguably the biggest annual event on the Sydney Opera House’s calendar. Part of the excitement is waiting to hear who will be playing. I was stoked to learn that the Pixies would be performing four consecutive nights in the Concert Hall. One Christmas when I was in high school I received a copy of Death to the Pixies. I almost burnt that thing out from playing it so much. From there I discovered two of my all-time favourites, Doolittle and Surfer Rosa. That excitement and enjoyment of sharing bands and music among friends on carefully made mix tapes was one of the reasons I got into sound in the first place. And now a band that seemed almost mythical in importance was going to be playing at a venue I worked at.
