I have a grueling schedule this weekend. Today I play a nine-hour doubleheader with two different bands (fortunately at the same club — Lou’s Pier 47 on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco — so I don’t have to move my gear between shows). My first gig starts at 4:00 and runs until 8:00, then I get an hour break to grab dinner, and will be back on stage from 9:00 until 1:00. Tomorrow night I play in at Constable Jack’s in Newcastle, California, up in the Sierra foothiils north of Sacramento. After about a 2+ hour drive to get there, we go onstage at 9:00 and play until 1:00. Once I pack my gear, load the car, and drive back home, I’ll slip into bed somewhere around 4:00 a.m. Thank goodness I don’t have much planned for Sunday!

What does your weekend look like? I’ll have my iPad with me at both shows and will check the forum between sets.

I know, late post, but oh well. My drumming schedule used to be that busy. Now I practice once a week, and gig about once a month. But when we gig we play shows for at least a couple thousand people, so the time on stage makes up for the slower schedule. Plus, I don’t think my wife wants me gone for weeks or months at a time.

Nice kit, cool song.  I hope things go well for your band.
