Re: Forum Members 20 questions


I missed out on AILD last time, but Underoath is coming to a city 3 hours away from me next week. I don't think I'll be able to go, but I will definitely try. Depends on my paycheck on friday

Do you mean Shannon Lucas or Jason Costa?

Wow! I wonder if mine will last that long...

!00% sure it was Jason, he was drumming traditional. How I get into almost every show is I help load in...

Pros and Cons Of loading in:
Pros:
Free admission
Keeps you busy
You get to meet new people
You get to MEET THE BAND
You get to help set up the bands kit (though some can be picky, notice that I didn't say jerks)
You might end up getting a job as a DRUM TECH or become part of the union/ work for the union!


Cons:
Might have to wait
Might have to pay to get in
Might not be treated with respect (highly unlikly)

*Note* to prevent cons call first, And If you have loaded in or played at a venue, tell them you loaded in there.
Also you can say that a person who loaded in for terror, sworn enemy, mastodon, recommends you.
