Rock gigs always bring out the best from your two favorite weekend warriors, and this week had Paul and Dave experiencing some real highlights. There’s always something to be learned from every gig, isn’t there?
Really, though, it all comes down to awareness and having an honest conversation with your audience. That starts on stage, of course, but it can very much continue when you’re not even in the same room together. Paul and Dave talk through all of this and more. You’re definitely not going to want to miss this one!
00:00:00 Gig Gab 158 – Monday, March 26, 2018
00:01:49 Dave’s on 10th Avenue (and he’s being froze out!)
Dave’s just back from attending a full week of the SXSW Conference and Festivals, and he and Paul have a lot to discuss! From new bands that Dave found, to new films that Dave saw, SXSW provided an infusion of new info and new thinking and, well, that’s the point of exposing yourself, right?
To new things, we mean. Not that other thing. Dave stayed clothed during both SXSW and the recording of this podcast.
Also, sometimes even when you don’t attend a conference you can change your own mind, and Paul’s had a change of heart he shares, too. You won’t want to miss this one, folks!
Have you ever peed next to a rock star? How about a former Vice President? Dave has peed next to both Dave Grohl and Al Gore, and for some reason Paul gets him to tell those stories perfectly in the context of your normally-scheduled Gig Gab. Guess which one has tighter security? You’ll have to listen to find out.
Also, Dave shares a few SXSW stories from the past as he prepares to head to Austin next week to attend the conference again. Then it’s on to discussion about how to market your band and get attention from the right people.
After that, your two favorite weekend warriors move on to discussing just how to prepare for a gig where you don’t know any of the tunes… and how to make it through those gigs, too! All this and more… that’s how you know it’s Gig Gab!
