    Talking UF Music Law Conference Showcase 2/27



    Hey kids! Here's my next gig, with my "main" side band, Hoyt and the Hotheads, Saturday 2/27 at Common Grounds here in Gainesville, Florida.

    I know there's probably no one close enough to go, but what the heck-- will use this thread to post pics from the show after it's over.

    Also, there is a Music Law Conference the same day, over at the University of Florida College of Law, preceding the show, which is open to lawyers, bands, and actually anyone who wants to come, though there is a registration fee involved (unless you are a UF student). If anyone wanted to come to that, here is how you can register:

    http://www.law.ufl.edu/musiclawconf/...stration.shtml

    I and my bandmate Hoyt (we're both also lawyers) will be at the conference all day (since we're playing that night, they comped us on the registration fee), and then our band will open the showcase downtown that evening.

    Since I know there are some lawyers here, here's your opportunity to hop in your jet, come down to sunny Florida, get some Continuing Legal Education hours, and see a great show too. Win-win-win.

    Thumbs up Gig report with pics!

    So after the conference, went home, ate, and loaded up the guitars (the amps and other accessories had been loaded the preceding night at the office, where I keep most of my gear). I had dressed the part of musician (rather than lawyer) for the conference, so I didn't have to change clothes. Drove into town with my daughter (and designated driver) for 8 p.m. soundcheck. Even though we were 5 minutes early, the rest of the Hotheads were already there.

    I've had problems with the owner/stage manager at this club (we were booked by the Music Law Conference, not the house) but tonight he kept his distance, as with my next most recent show there (with Crash Pad last year), it seems he's less willing to be an a**hole when my 16-year-old daughter is around (and, except when onstage or in the can, I pretty much keep her close when we go out to shows; never out of sight really).

    Was sweating playing to an empty room because the MLC had a cocktail party at another club a couple blocks away that ran until 9, and we were the first of 4 bands. Fortunately the house cut us some slack and by the time we went on a decent number of people had arrived.

    Set went well, and our unofficial band photog came and got some good shots, which capture the stage lighting nicely, although he also took a number of "safeties" with flash, which look like poo by comparison. Our former bassist, who used to tour with Marty Balin's post-Starship solo band, played this show so I could play lead. I lent him my bass rig as he has a 1x15 combo, and the SVT 8x10 just looks and sounds better on a big stage. The soundguy at this club is great, and he both lined and mic'd the fridge cab.

    I used a new rig which I think I'll use for all Hotheads shows now. First part of the rig is guitar (in this case my Tex-Mex Tele) into Super Champ XD (so I can use the footswitch for the dirt channel, and onboard reverb, thus the only pedal onstage is the SCXD 2-button switcher) 1x10. Then I lined out from the SCXD to my '60's Sunn 200S head driving my DIY Celestion 2x12 open-back cab, and that cab was mic'd and into the PA. Since the stage there is big, I put the Sunn/2x12 in the backline, but the SCXD up near me as kind of a stage monitor. This is similar to what I'd been doing in church (only at much higher volume for the Hotheads) , and it worked great.

    The set went real well, and we got a lot of compliments. Stayed for the next 2 bands and part of the last. All were good at what they did. My daughter (who is a bassist) enjoyed the next band after us primarily because that band's bassist was not only good but "gorgeous." Hmm, hafta keep an eye on that chile.

    In the penultimate band, the bassist was an old acquaintance of mine, who previously played in the local punk band No More, which Crash Pad has gigged with many times. About 3 songs from the end of their set, their lead singer broke a string on his acoustic-electric but had no backup and asked if anybody had a spare guitar. Since I was right in front of the stage anyhow, I asked if he wanted a Tele or a Les Paul, ran out to the Rockmobile, got the Tele, and he finished the set with my guitar. Was kinda glad he said Tele, since the LP was my Classic and the most expensive one I own.

    All in all a fun night, my daughter drove home so as to be in compliance with all applicable laws. As ever, your comments on my poseritude are welcomed and expected, although the photog didn't get any of our closer, with the usual knee-drop/exhaustion lying on floor at end of song shenanigans. Will bump with photos as they're uploaded.

    (Actually, today Cool Edit won. I nailed down a SWEET rendition of Little Wing over an internet backing track and was faced with severe delay issues on playback.. then trying to fix them, the program crashed and I lost EVERYTHING.)

    Oh man, that'd drive me nuts. If I had any way to record at home I'd be divorced in a week.

    I'm not married. That helps relieve 99% of the tension on my relationship. ;-)

    Back to your thread!

    ^^^^^^ That's awesome!

    So, you're essentially using the Fender amph as a pedal for the Sunn?

    Essentially that's correct. Plus in a big stage sitch like this, it also gives me a monitor (independent of the house PA's monitor) nearby where I can hear my sound better for tweaking purposes, and controls I can reach without having to walk 15 or 20 feet. In this pic, if you look way over at the right edge of the photo, you can just barely see the Fender logo for the Super Champ XD gleaming in the dark about a foot or so above stage floor height; the amph is leaning back against the PA tower stage left. To our left of the Les Paul, in the backline, is the Sunn rig.

    I missed this!!!! And I just spent a bunch of time watching less interesting online CLE on topics like "Navigating the Shoals of a Family Law Case", and "Mental Health and the Law". This would have been way more entertaining!

    I am glad it went well! Love the pics as always. I am going to put on some Hoyt & the Hotheads tonight!

    Thanks Steve-- now that I have an in (I had previous acquaintances with the gal student-in-charge overall, and the boy student in charge of the Showcase, both through the local music scene rather than the law school), I'll probably make a concerted effort to get one of my other bands on the bill at the next one as well.

    Back in the early aughts we tried to get on the Showcase but couldn't get on the bill. All in who you know.

    Unintentional, believe it or not.

    This year was easy. I'm hoping that next year, the Showcase boy will be promoted to overall head student person. In the meantime, I should probably try to book something with his band just to grease the wheels.
