Four-Walling, Tribute Acts, and Substance Use – GigGab 90

empty stage with purple lightsSome important topics addressed this week, including the special benefits of doing a tribute act as well as the concept of “four-walling” your own show and managing the whole night. That conversation is bookended by equally-important discussions about the substances on which both your crowd and your bandmates (and you) choose to use at your shows. How do you set those rules? What do you do when they’re broken? Oh the twists and turns you’ll take! This week’s GigGab is all over the map, but the path makes sense once you’re along for the ride.
