The fourth official day of South by Southwest Music brought not only heightened foot traffic and more music showcases, but a pretty steady downpour as well. Though rain can be a rare sight around the Austin area, the wet weather didn't keep the music or the fans away. Performances continued across the city, and we pressed on in our search for the latest and greatest.

The music portion of South by Southwest (SXSW) is here again, which means miles of walking, thousands of bands, and dodging tens of thousands of fellow festivalgoers to find the diamonds in the proverbial rough.

Using shadow/darkness in lighting design 1 Reply

I like to use shadow/darkness in my light design if allowed or possible. So i was wondering how others use darkness as a part of light design. I don't believe it should always be without shadows(except when doing camera lighting or similar). With this said i am curious how much you guys use shadow/darkness on stage. Is it depending on genre and style of music or on artists request or something totally different?Continue

Experienced PA/PC Branch Out Advice? 2 Replies

Hey there, PC with 5+ years of road experience looking for a little advice. I've been with the same band for my entire road career - and they've been great. But the calendar going forward is empty for over 2 months for the first time in a long time. I'm looking to get maybe on a short tour or fill my calendar up with production related work that won't replace or compete with my band once they get back into their spring/summer swing. Suggestions from other PA's or PC's on what they do in the off months would be much appreciated! Thanks! Continue

Why Are You On The Road? 11 Replies

Out of curiosity, what prompted you to carve out a career on the road? Was it the irrisistable prospects of easy money and fast, easy women?  Or was it the promise of all the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll you'd heard so much about? Maybe you was lured in by the "glamorous lifestyle".  Or are you one of the proverbial "failed rock stars"?Personally, my main aim was to piss off the detractors and haters that I grew up with. The people who disliked my refusal to take life as seriously as they did, so ultimately disliked me. I lost count of the times I was told, "Give it up, loser. You ain't ever gonna get anywhere. Get a PROPER job..!"I come from what's known as a "New Town", just outside of London. Back then, kids left school at 16, got a job in a factory or on a building site and bought a second hand Ford Capri. This was closely followed by marriage, a mortgage,  2 point 4 children and the Capri being traded in for a family saloon.  Even though I have no musical ability, I was determined to find something I could excel at. By chance, I was offered a job at NEMS Enterprises in the Black Sabbath office. It was 1974 and "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" had just been released. The guy conducting the interviews was an extremely camp executive accountant and, in those days, I was slim and attractive with long blond hair. He offered me the job on the spot. (Don't get me wrong...he never made any kind of advances toward me). I spent the next few years working for various record companies, but could never really get on with "record company people". (You KNOW what I mean, right?)In 1978 I was owed a favour, so Wayne County and the Electric Chairs took me on their UK tour. I'd found where I wanted to be.My big touring break didn't come until 1982 with Yazoo. For the next 30 years, I never looked back. I toured worldwide with a variety of bands and found a very satisfying way of pissing all those haters off. Whenever I was in New York or Los Angeles or Sydney or Tokyo, they would get a…Continue
