This was a crazy day. I left Sac early, met up with my friend Kirk and headed to GGP to see the Old 97s open(?) this show. Kirk taped from the audience and I gave a DAT to the soundman so he could run a board tape. Since this was a “big” show, I could not hang out in the soundbooth and watch my levels. When I checked the tape later, the levels were set way too high. I was able to work with it and rebalance and salvage it. The mix settles down at about 4min into the set, and the funky high end swirling sound never goes away- I think it was windy that day.
Then that night, we went to see the Ranchero Brothers and the 97s play a secret show at the Stork Club, where they played so many deep cuts. Best day ever.
