Sound Check at The Silver Moon

Last night at the Silver Moon:

"Check, check, check, boom boom boom, hello test test test la-la-la-la-la oooooo-eeeeee testing testing testing testing testing check check a little more bass please check check check more bass please check check ahhhhh-HAAAAAAAA test test that's better check, check, boom boom boom, hello test test test la-la-la-la-la oooooo-eeeeee testing testing testing testing testing check check..."

Wash, rinse, repeat for five minutes. Then another musician takes up the mission to make sure his microphone is getting the sound he wants, like this:

"Check, check, check, boom boom boom, hello test test test la-la-la-la-la oooooo-eeeeee testing testing testing testing testing check check a little more bass please check check check more bass please check check ahhhhh-HAAAAAAAA test test that's better check, check, boom boom boom, hello test test test la-la-la-la-la oooooo-eeeeee testing testing testing testing testing check check..."

Then another, then another then another. It never stopped. They would not shut up, even for a few seconds.

The Silver Moon has a new sound system. Looks like they spent some bucks, too.

The music was advertised as starting at 8. They started their sound check at 6:15 and proceeded to blast the place with shouted "check check" for at least an hour before my friends and I finally gave up trying to have a conversation and threw in the towel. Others left, too. No one looked too pleased.

"Music better be fucking good for how long this sound check is taking," I announced as I was paying my bar tab.

Someone with the band said that it was that good.

And it might have been awesome, but clearing the place before the performance doesn't seem very smart or professional.

It's one thing to be unable to hear the person sitting next to you because of music, but it gets downright irritating to have to listen to one guy after another blast the place continuously with:

"Check, check, check, boom boom boom, hello test test test la-la-la-la-la oooooo-eeeeee testing testing testing testing testing check check a little more bass please check check check more bass please check check ahhhhh-HAAAAAAAA test test that's better check, check, boom boom boom, hello test test test la-la-la-la-la oooooo-eeeeee testing testing testing testing testing check check check, check, check, boom boom boom, hello test test test la-la-la-la-la oooooo-eeeeee testing testing testing testing testing check check a little more bass please check check check more bass please check check ahhhhh-HAAAAAAAA test test that's better check, check, boom boom boom, hello test test test la-la-la-la-la oooooo-eeeeee testing testing testing testing testing check check..."

It's a good thing I don't carry a handgun.

  1. LOL! And all that in preparation to play shitkicker music. It was a waste of perfectly good electricity to amplify it.
