So we've gone through 4 states in the last 2 days so we've seen some really interesting landscapes. Its amazing to me how quickly mountains can change into desert or rolling hills into flat farmland. There are a lot of mountains that still have snow on them in this part of the country which I guess is normal for this time of year but it seems unusual to me. I've also seen more dust devils (those mini tornadoes made of dust) in the past two days then ever before.
This week we had a very interesting show/venue. I'm not gonna name names so I won't tell you what day it was. ;) Basically, the venue was one of our normal ones except for the fact that even though they had techies there to help us, they didn't lift a finger. Bad omen from the start. So we start the show and the audience is DEAD. No applause (which we've had before and is a little offputting no matter the times that it happens) and no laughter (or very little). Then, during the first blackout (which doesn't happen for a while into the show, for those of you that haven't seen it) there are lights that remain on. Turns out an entire row of lights was ghosting (basically staying on when there is no rhyme or reason for it). Then in attempts to fix this, the techies at the venue accidentally turned on the house lights in the middle of the show. We continue as normally as possible, and finally they seem to have the ghosting fixed. The show was pretty normal from then on but the audience still didn't make much of a noise, they finally got clapping by the end of the show but it took a while. Oh well, gotta chalk it up to experience but it was just so crazy I had to write about it.
That's pretty much it for now... Only three weeks remaining and we are BOOKING it across the country. It will be over before I know it.
